TRI-PARISH MARDI GRAS CELEBRATION
On Tuesday, March 5, there will be a Tri-Parish Mardi Gras Celebration in the Sts. Peter and Paul Gathering Space from 6:30pm-7:45pm.  Great food, including Gumbo, mini po boys, salad, and decadent desserts, will be served.  There will be lively music and singing, great fun for the whole family! Create a colorful mask & accessories of your own (a great family activity) or choose from a limited selection that will be on hand.  There will also be a King Cake, and the one who finds the baby hidden within their cake will be crowned King or Queen of the Celebration!  During the last 15 minutes of our festivities, we will move into church for a reflective service with Deacon Phil Dinovo to begin our Lenten Season together in prayer. There is no fee, but registration is required for accurate headcount for the meal. All are welcome! Please call the Pastoral Office, 419-625-7500 or e-mail lpedoli@stspeterpaul.com to reserve your seats. Doors open at 6:00pm.

MARCH LUNCH MENU

RE-ENROLLMENT IS NOW OPEN
A letter was mailed home to all current SCCS families last week with students entering grades 1-12 explaining the re-enrollment process for the 2019-2020 school year. Families may call to set up an appointment, or choose the online re-enrollment option through Final Forms. Once enrollment is complete, the tuition contract will be sent home for you to review, sign, and return with the $200 family enrollment fee. The $200 family enrollment fee is due by Friday, April 27, 2019 to be applied toward next year's tuition balance. After April 27, the fee will no longer be applied to tuition. You may pay the fee online; however, Final Forms charges a 4% fee, so you may still pay SCCS directly via cash or check if you wish. Please contact Mrs. Chrissy Snow at 419-626-1892, ext. 311 or  csnow@sanduskycc.org  with questions or to set up an appointment.
