So much is going on around here as we near the end of our first semester, and there is a lot of information in this edition of News and Notes, especially Catholic Schools Week fun; and our virtual gala. Please read it through carefully so you don’t miss out!
We are already gearing up for next year, so please register as soon as possible. We need to know how many new students we can accept as we plan staffing, space use, etc. Tell your friends, we will be full, so don’t delay registration.
Our gala committee is preparing a wonderful virtual celebration, that includes goodies to enjoy at home during the presentation including dinner from Charlie’s, a crowler of beer from Boathouse Brothers Brewery, Crewwe’s root beer and more! Get your ticket (information in News and Notes below), get cozy with your bash in a bag, and see you there on Saturday, Feb. 13!
Some current happenings around school: We are keeping Ms. Baima busy working with students and teachers to make sure we are meeting individual learning needs. We have also added an extra period of middle school math by freeing up Mrs. Roseen (Mrs. Hinker will take over her religion class to allow this). We have a wide range of math abilities in our middle school, and we want to keep everyone challenged appropriately. This year our kids are feeling the stress we all have been experiencing, and they need some extra TLC. Please reach out if you need any resources or assistance.
Several 8th graders and a couple 7th graders have taken over the morning announcements.. They give a few details about the Saint of the day, celebrate birthdays (and half birthdays) and lead the school in a prayer and the Pledge of Allegiance. This month we have been praying the prayer of St. Francis for peace in our community, country and world.
Have a great weekend, it sounds like a cold one! God bless, go Blues and go Gophers!
