Bulletin for the Week of November 17, 2019

The Scholastic Book Fair will take place on November 18, 19 and 20, 3:30-5:30 pm. I hope you can find some time on one of these three days to stop by and browse. A special thanks goes to Megan Carr for organizing the sale and to all the parents who are assisting with set-up and sales.

Christmas Toy Drive: The HCA Student Council is sponsoring a toy drive for disadvantaged children. The drive will run from Monday, November 18, through Tuesday, December 3. Toys should be new; no soccer balls. Gifts should not be wrapped. Our goal at HCA-JP2 is an average of one gift per student. If we get at least 60% of our goal, we will celebrate with a pajama day, including a Christmas movie and hot chocolate in the afternoon. As always, thanks in advance for your continued generosity.

This week's Mass, on Thursday morning, November 21, is being planned by Ms. Amelotti and the fourth graders. Please feel free to join us for Mass. Mass begins at 8:00 am.

Reminder: We are still collecting Christmas items for the students to purchase at Santa's Workshop on Monday, December 9. Items can be dropped off at the office or be given directly to Mrs. Karen Stolarski.

Please keep our second graders in your prayers this week. They will be making their First Penance on Thursday evening, November 21.

Congratulations to these students who got "Shout Outs" this week: Lucas Armentrout (K), Joe Daniels (K), Maxine Stavron (K), Connor Dooley (2nd), Emma Mijatovic (2nd), Austin Morris (2nd), Nina Westerheide (2nd), Jack Lynch (3rd), Patrick McDaniel (3rd), Sam Trares (4th), Destin Danovan (5th), Ellen Hopfinger (5th), Colin McNamee (5th), Nate Meyers (5th), Ryan Sitner (5th) and Carter Sullivan (5th).
