Let us run with endurance the race set before us,
fixing our eyes on Jesus
who is the author and finisher of our faith.
Hebrews 12: 1,2

BLESSING AND PROTECTION OF OUR SCHOOL - After Mass on Thursday, Father Craig led a procession through the school with the Blessed Sacrament. The purpose was to bless and protect our school community from illnesses and sins this school year. Thank you Father Craig!

CALLING ALL 3-6 GRADERS - Choir begins on Tuesday, September 14th after school. Contact Miss Heather if you are interested or have any questions. Note About Choir

PARENTS' NIGHT - The evening of Thursday, September 30th we are inviting all parents of children in K-6 to come to school for a visit. There will be a short informational meeting in the social hall for all parents, and then you can head to the classrooms to hear more from the teachers. Please mark your calendars and we hope you are able to attend. More details in future newsletters.

ENVELOPE OF PAPERWORK - The colored papers need to be completed and returned to school. Some are one per family and some are one per child which is why there may be multiple copies of some of the forms. Check to see if there are two sides to complete before sending them back to school. Please let me know if you have any questions about these. You can keep the white papers at home or recycle them.

ONLINE STORE - Thanks to United Team Elite you can purchase JI and LA gear online. Orders are due on or before September 15th. Orders will be ready 2-3 weeks after closing date and can be picked up at JI. Here is the link to the online store.

MARATHON - Thanks to Jessica Yost for taking the lead with this year's marathon. All fourth grade families will help with this event for our school. Marathon Kick-off is September 17th but the actual event is Sunday, October 3rd. Look in next week's Friday Folder for more information.

TRUNK OR TREAT - Mark your calendars for Saturday, October 30th! We will hold our annual Trunk or Treat event on this day. There is no cost and it is a FUN event. More details coming soon.

Once again there is federal funding so families will be able to have free lunches for their children for the 2021-2022 school year. If your child has cold lunch with a milk, your account will be charged $0.35 per milk. This is not reimbursable, only school lunches for students are reimbursable.

Here is the September Lunch Menu.
Sign up to help during lunch.
