The O'Reilly Minute
Dear Parents,

The corrected version of the Family Directory is now available on SchoolSpeak here (you will need to login to access it). Please use this version instead of the one sent last week.

Our regular 9:00 am Mass on Thursday has been moved to 9:00 am on Friday, October 4th. All Diocesan priests will be gathering with Bishop Brennan for a week-long convocation. Please keep of all our priests and our bishop in your prayers as they share information and discern the future of our diocese.

On Thursday, October 3rd we will be having our first CARE meeting of the new year. Students and staff are invited to enjoy a dress down day featuring school colors and spirit wear!!! (School colors/spiritwear are not required….it is suggested). Go Wolfhounds!

Tonight and tomorrow evening we will be having our first student-led conferences of the new school year. It is still not too late to sign up. Please see the Sign Up Genius in the story below. This is a wonderful way to spend time with your child(ren) and talk about the importance of goal setting for the new year and to discuss and review the beginning of the year assessments and projects.
