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.

From the Desk of Ellen Knippel, Principal

Dear Parents,
Happy New Year! Please read the following message from Mrs. Ziegler.
Mrs. Ellen Knippel


Happy New Year!
The new year is a time of resolutions, of change, of personal growth...
After twelve years of volunteering in the school while my children were here (1991-2003), four years working at the parish, and then another sixteen years as your school secretary, I've decided it's time to spend more time playing with my eight grandchildren and caring for my 93-year-old mom. Therefore, I plan to retire this June of 2020.
I would like to thank all the wonderful families who have made me feel so valuable over the years - and your delightful children who bring a smile to my face every day. My extended family, the hardest-working and most fun-loving staff I've ever known, will be enormously missed.
This will be a huge adjustment for all of us, and I plan to help the new secretary smoothly transition into the position. Speaking of which - dust off your resume if you are interested!
Much love -
Bonita Ziegler
