Comfy Clothes Day for PTO Meeting Attendance
As promised, the special comfy clothes day for those whose parents attended the January 21st PTO Meeting will be Friday, February 14th in honor of St. Valentine’s Day—a list of attendees will be sent to each homeroom teacher. Students may wear red, white, or pink with nice jeans since it is also a day we attend Mass.
