Many thanks to FSA for an outstanding Trunk or Treat event this past Sunday.  What an excellent turnout for some great family fun.  Thank you FSA for all that you do for our school community.  

I also want to thank the room parents who volunteered to plan and run the Halloween parties that each class had yesterday.  It was wonderful to see the children having such a great time.  I hope you enjoyed your time as much as they did.  Thanks to all who came out for the parade!

PLEASE CONSIDER CONTACTING YOUR LEGISLATOR! The Invest in Kids Act is at a critical point and the Archdiocese is asking for your support.  While you may not be receiving one of the scholarships, we do have families in our community who do.  Please see the following letter from Greg Richmond, Superintendent of Catholic Schools.

Have a great week!

Ms. Booth
