From the Desk of Ellen Knippel, Principal

Dear Parents,
Happy Catholic Schools Week! We are all ready for a fun-filled week! We had a great kick off event on Saturday night with Mostaccioli Madness! Those 8th graders certainly are amazing cooks (parents too!)! Thanks to all who came out to support the students traveling to Washington DC in May. 

Sunday, we had many visitors to our Parish/School Open House. Many thanks to Susan Goggins and Annie Staebler for spearheading this event. We have SO much to "show off" here at SAL! I am certainly proud of all we have to offer. Thanks to the teachers for showcasing their classrooms (not to mention spending Sunday morning in school)! Finally, thanks to YOU parents for getting your registrations in for next year. We already have wait lists for a couple of our classrooms!

Please see the Catholic Schools Week information below for the rundown of events and dress days. Thank for your support!

Breaking News:  There will be NO SCHOOL on Wednesday, January 30, due to freezing temperatures.  All after-school and evening events are also cancelled.  Thursday is "iffy"  Stay tuned.  Stay warm.  Stay safe!

Blessings!
