Monday 1/27: Celebrating our Community and our Families
Thank you to our parents for partnering with us in the education of your children. We are blessed by your generosity of time, talent, and treasure.

"Support the Blue"  was a huge success; we presented Officers Kristen Oleksik and Matt Heeren with a $1000 check today. Thank you OLPH!!  

Tuesday 1/28: Celebrating our Grandparents
Students will be attending the Grandparent Mass at 10 A.M.  Students with grandparents attending the reception will meet them in the gym at 9 A.M.  

Wednesday 1/29: Celebrating our Nation
Today Catholic school supporters communicate the value of Catholic education to government leaders. They share information with leaders on the significant contributions Catholic schools make to the nation and their role in preparing students to be good citizens. We pray for our nation and recognize all those who serve it.  Our 8th grade NJHS students and the Student Council will attend a diocesan  Mass at SS. Simon & Jude Cathedral and attend a rally at the state capitol.

Thursday 1/30: Celebrating our Faculty and Staff
The backbone of Catholic schools, our teachers and staff, are honored on Thursday. On this day we thank all of them for their hard work and dedication to our school. Lunch is provided for all staff members and they get a free jeans day! 
Friday 1/31: Celebrating our Students
By focusing on knowledge, love, and service, our school prepares children to use their God-given talents to the fullest. We celebrate our students and at the same time encourage them to reflect on the benefits of Catholic education and how this foundation will help them throughout their lives.  Students get a free dress day! 

50% of sales come back to the school when you dine in or take-out from Modern Market on January 31st!  What a great way to end the week!!  



 Any financial support through sponsorship or underwriting makes a considerable difference in achieving our goals for the event. 

we are happily accepting wine donations

February 7th - First Friday coffee is the official wine drop day.

 Ten tickets have gone home with each child; thank you for selling!
