There is lots of information on Homecoming and Turkey Dinner in this eBlast! Please read it to be in the know!
But first...
Don't miss the Catholic Parent Teacher Club meeting this Wednesday, October 4 at 6pm. Child care will be provided by Coach King's 8th graders. Babysitting is free, but they will collect any donations to support their 8th grade service project, benefiting St. Jude's Children's Research Hospital.

Students in Pre-K through 3rd grade may bring a stuffed animal to be blessed. No live animals will be allowed in the classroom.  Parents are welcome to join with their pets on the field at 2:40.  No large livestock animals, please.

Picture Retakes
Picture retakes are this Wednesday (and for first-timers who missed the first run).  Notice should have been sent to your child's homeroom teacher if they intended to take retakes.  All students, not just those having retakes done, will have free appropriate dress on Wednesday.

Turkey Dinner
SMS is blessed to have a small army make cakes for our annual Turkey Dinner, October 15. We need each and every family to make a cake to make Turkey Dinner a success. The delicious dessert is what makes the meal complete!
PLEASE PLAN ON MAKING A CAKE. We will be cutting the cakes on Saturday evening so please bring your cake to the St. Mary's Holy Family Center on Friday & Saturday, October 13 & 14 between 8am-6pm. YOU WILL NOT BE CALLED THIS YEAR. WE STILL NEED YOUR HELP! Un-iced bundt cakes are best for slicing. Please consider a donation in lieu of store bought cakes. Homemade is what makes this event unique. We would like to carry on that tradition.
