A special word of thanks goes to the parents who supervised classes this past Thursday. This allowed the teachers to celebrate Teacher Appreciation Day with lunch together.

Looking ahead: We will celebrate the Feast of Seven Holy Founders with a Mass and retreat activities at SHF on Friday, February 14. Drop-off on this day will be at SHF and dismissal will be at noon at SHF. Aftercare will be available at SHF for K-8th students. Preschoolers will have a regular day with dismissal at 11:45.
