Dear Friends,

I hope that everyone enjoyed the Christmas holiday with friends and family and the break provided some time to rest, relax, and reflect on the blessings we have been given. 

May wish is for these blessings to continue for each of you through the upcoming new year. I wish you a happy and safe New Year. Celebrate with the ones you love and please share the prayer below with your children.

Happy New Year,

Steven J. Santoli
UPDATED: Pick-Up Procedures

Afternoon Pick-Up

  • A large area in front of the school will be coned off to create a safe walking zone for children and adults.
  • Students will be walked by their teacher into the designated coned area to meet their parents.
  • No student will be allowed past the cones without an adult.
  • Meet your child in the coned area and walk them back to your car.
  • You may exit the parking lot slowly and carefully when you determine it is safe to do so.
Soup Drive for Homes for the Brave
More Than Halfway to Our Goal: 700 Cans All Ready Collected

Mrs. Riehl, Mrs. Loreng, and the PK3 class will once again collect canned soup for Homes for the Brave. Every Monday, until the Super Bowl, students and staff are asked to donate canned soup. As a thank you, Mr. Santoli will allow anybody that donates to wear their favorite football (or any sport) jersey over their uniform. 

Homes for the Brave provides emergency shelter for homeless veterans as well as counseling, housing, and career guidance.
