Read the labels at each purchase! Manufacturing processes change!
Avoid items with allergy and ingredient alerts such as: "May Contain Peanut or Tree Nuts" "Processed on shared equipment with Peanuts or Tree Nuts" "Manufactured in a plant with Peanut or Tree Nuts" "Contains Peanut or Tree Nut Ingredients" Your diligence is keeping an allergic child safe at school.

Dear Parents,
Our all-parish Come Together Event will take place on Saturday, February 15 th, 2020! Are you registered yet? This promises to be a FABULOUS evening of fun along with great auction items! This is the  ONLY fundraising event that our School/Parish will be having this year. It combines the  School Hot Summer Slice, The  Faith Formation Gala and the  Parish raffle! Therefore, it is extremely important that we have strong participation from all! Get a table with your friends! Invite family members! Register today
Included in today's newsletter is the rundown of the events that will take place during Catholic School's Week which begins with Mass and Open House on Sunday, January 26 th. Included are the "special dress" days. Everything takes place during that week except for our "Souper Bowl". We will begin collecting cans of soup immediately. Students will be able to place their soup under the goalpost of their favorite 2020 Superbowl team. I realize we have one more week before we know who those teams will be, but start watching for soup sales now!

LAST CALL for Let's Build It.  If we don't have enough children, the class will be cancelled.  Please see below for registration information.

Please send waterproof gloves, etc. for recess.  Knit gloves get very wet and are useless after the first recess.

In celebration of the Packers going to the playoffs:  Friday, Jan. 17, will be an out-of-uniform day.  Students are welcome to wear Packer gear or St. Anthony spirit wear!
