Reminder - No School tomorrow, October 16
System professional development day for all teachers and staff

We are excited to be planning a re-imagined Celebrate! We had a fabulous kickoff meeting in September and generated some wonderful ideas. Now it is time to get to work and put those ideas into action. All volunteers are welcome, even if you did not attend the first meeting. We love working with volunteers, miss seeing parents, and this is one area in which parents can still volunteer.

NEW Meeting Location! We are moving indoors (masked and socially distanced) into the ballroom at Butte des Morts Country Club. The next meeting will be Tuesday, October 20th at noon.  

Please RSVP if possible, by Monday, October 19 at noon. Questions or can’t attend, but still want to be involved? Contact Lisa to RSVP or with questions at lpfaff@XavierCatholicSchools.org or 735-9380.
