Dear BSS Community,

We are midway through our Catholic Schools Celebration and we still have many activities planned for
the next two days. Thank you for your generosity for the food donations. We are still collecting until the end of the week. Yesterday, we had a wonderful prayer service honoring our first responders and leaders of our county. Don’t forget to ask your child about next year’s teacher and class. We end the
week with ice cream for the students and the Winter Pep Rally!

Thank You
A big THANK YOU to the delicious lunch that was provided to our faculty and staff and even a bigger Thank You to the volunteers who took over lunch/recess duty on Tuesday so our teachers could have a duty free day.

Security
If you order lunch that will be delivered to school from other than Myhotlunchbox please inform the office. We want to make sure who we allow into the school. Thank you for your cooperation.
