  " For where two or three are gathered in my name, I am there among them."  
February 6th, 2019
From Mrs. Rowley       
Well, Catholic Schools Week was cut a little short with the wintry weather! Hopefully we will reschedule some of the events for when the weather is more certain. We are continuing to collect Boxtops. You will find a tracking sheet in the Wednesday folder to use for your Boxtops. Prizes are waiting to be earned.
Due to the wintry weather the Scantron window has been expanded. Therefore results will go home in next week's Wednesday folders. Please watch for them (grades 3-7).
The gala is fast approaching and we are really looking forward to a fun evening. Please note that there are still opportunities for volunteering. Please be a part of putting this wonderful - and important -evening together.

Box Tops 
Hello St. Ambrose Families!

Hopefully you have been collecting your box tops throughout the school year and have a big bag FULL of them just waiting to be turned in!

Please send in as MANY box tops as possible NO LATER THAN Friday, February 22 so that we can submit in time for the final deadline for this school year per the box tops 4 education program.

A flyer will go home in the Wednesday folder for your students to attach and submit their box tops. Please feel free to make copies if you need extra or simply submit in a Ziploc bag or envelope with your students name on it!

The student that submits the most box tops will earn a gift card to Regal Cinemas! This is a super easy way that each and every family can support our school that has a direct financial impact!!

Thank you in advance for your support! Feel free to contact Mary Helou with any questions!

From the Editor

Please make sure to read the Buzz every week. There's a lot of great things in it. Also, turn in your submissions! Submissions are due by Mondays by 5pm. I accept submissions from teachers, staff, and parents. If you know of something interesting going on in our community, or want to give a shout out to someone at the school, I'd love to add it to the Buzz. I especially love pictures. Please contact Mrs. Rowley to make sure that we have permission to publish pictures of every student in the picture. Pictures need to be less than 5 MB. Thanks so much!
