The Preschool students are learning about "almsgiving" for Lent and will be doing a collection of items for SAAP, Stray Animal Adoption Program. The preschool children are being asked to earn their own money to purchase a toy, treats, collar or other items for a dog or cat who will hopefully be adopted. We will have a box at school if anyone else wants to contribute to our collection. We will be collecting items (and monetary donations) from March 2 - 19. The Preschool students are on their Lenten Journey!
The Cavalier Call Committee would like to take a moment to say two simple words that mean more to us than you will ever know.
Thank You.
We are pleased to announce, that in one night, we were able to net over $180,000 in support of St. Joseph School. That's over $180,000 after our expenses, some of which will be used to build a new playground.   It just goes to show that with your help, support, and generosity, we can do great things together. Your support means more than you know.
On behalf of the entire school, we are so grateful — Thank you for your generosity, help, support, and all that you do for this school and each other.

Your 2020 Cavalier Call
