First & Third Grade Class Activities...
Our first graders have been hard at work designing and building ice cities from marshmallows, M&M's, cookies and gummies. They read about a city of ice that is built every year in China. They all really enjoyed this project!
Check out 3rd Grade! They had so much fun searching the South Carolina State House website and learning about our State!
E-Team
The E team meets every Thursday after school. They had lots of fun at a can crushing party!!! They crushed all of the cans that have been collected and then brought the bag down to the Knights of Columbus trailer where it will get brought to be recycled. If you want to be a part of this fun club stop by Mrs. Broderick's 6th grade classroom on Thursday to check it out!!

Fundraiser
Soup Bowl tickets went out in last week's Tuesday Envelopes. Each family received 5 tickets in total to purchase or sell. This is a warm delicious way for our school to raise money while also sharing talents and generosity of our Local Restaurants!

We ask that you please return payment for your tickets (or any unsold tickets) no later than Tuesday, January 28th!

Please keep in mind that we still need parent volunteers (i.e. servers, runners, soup pick up, clean up, bake sale, and ticket sales) to name a few.

Thank you in advance for your continued support of our school!

We look forward to seeing you all on the 31st.
The PTO will host a Bake Sale table at the Soup Bowl. WE need families to bring in homemade items. Please see the items we are looking for below. If you would like to send in other items we will gladly accept them. Keep in mind those with food allergies (gluten free, sugar free, peanut free, etc.) All items MUST BE INDIVIDUALLY WRAPPED AND LABELED.

Pre-K's Hand Painted Soup Bowls
The students and staff have been busy designing and painting soup bowls that will be available to our school parents for purchase. Any of the bowls that are not purchased prior to January 30th will be available for purchase to the general public at our Soup Bowl Event on January 31st.

If you would like to purchase your child/(ren's) hand painted soup bowl, please fill out the form that went home in last week's Tuesday Envelope along with your payment.

The Soup Bowl is quickly approaching. If you haven't purchased your tickets yet they are still available in the School and Church Offices. For those families who need Fair Share Hours for 3rd quarter this is the perfect time to sign up and get in your hours. Again, there will be several areas for volunteering (i.e. servers, runners, soup pick up, clean up, bake sale, and ticket sales) to name a few. This fundraiser is a fun and tasty way to support our school and to enjoy the fellowship with parishioners and SMCS families and friends. We will also continue selling tickets after all Masses the weekends of January 18th & 19th and 24th & 25th, 2020.
