From the Desk of Ellen Knippel, Principal

Dear Parents,
The end of our first trimester is upon us. That means that one-third of the school year will officially be over on Friday! The time is flying! Report cards will be coming home before Thanksgiving break.

Coming home today is the information on our Thanksgiving food boxes for House of Peace. Each class has decided how many boxes they would like to fill this year. The House of Peace sends us specific lists of what goes into each box. Your child will be coming home with the item(s) they chose to donate. Please help in any way that you can to make this a successful food drive to give a Thanksgiving meal to a family in need.

This Wednesday we will recognize all Veterans at our 7:45 Mass. We have invited Veterans who are parishioners to Mass, but if you have a family member who is a Veteran, please invite them to join us at Mass and a continental breakfast with our eighth graders immediately following to share their stories.

Mrs. Ellen Knippel

P.S. Thanks for working on tardies this week! We saw a nice improvement!
