Adventures from this week...
      This week's adventures were highlighted by an actual adventure (for me, anyway)!  I am composing this week's letter as I travel to Washington DC  for the 44th Annual March for Life.  This is my first time attending the March and I am thrilled to be a part of such a well-attended demonstration in support of life.  There is excitement in the air, as we hear the news that our new Vice President will be speaking at the March this year.  This is the first time that elected officials will be attending, and acknowledging the importance of this cause which speaks volumes in support of life from the moment of conception!
     Thank you for responding to the plea of submitting your re-registration forms prior to our Open House.  We are expecting a steady flow of interested families coming to tour our facility, and speculate that there will be many registration inquiries.  Please remember to send a friend for a tour to submit your family postcard for a chance of winning $50 cash or extended credit.
     Next week, as you are all aware, is Catholic Schools Week!  Please stay well informed of activities and dress code expectations for the week by referring to the CSW schedule of events.  All parents, grandparents and family members are encouraged and welcome to attend as many of the events as you are able,. The planned events are wonderful opportunities for us to come together to celebrate our faith-filled and fabulous school!  A few events worth emphasis and special attention are the 100th Day Celebration for Mrs. Ledoux on Monday at 10am, Tuesday's concerts with Curt Anderson that are taking place at both 10am and 1pm, and our "Proud to be an American " Assembly, honoring our military on Wednesday at 1pm. 
Please come along and share in our joy and excitement!
Have a wonderful weekend and God bless!
