October 10th-13th

A Note From Mrs. Marsha

Dear Families,

Grandparent’s Day was such a success! The children were full of excitement having their loved ones in their classroom. I think your child’s grandparent or special person were very impressed on how “grown-up” they behaved and how much learning they do too!  And to top it all off, the Three Little Pigs play sponsored by Porkchop Productions, was a wonderful way to end our morning filled with laughter.

We have a very busy week ahead. On Wednesday the Pet Blessing will be at 2:30 pm on the soccer field. You may bring your pet or a picture of your pet.

On Thursday K-5, 1st, and 2nd grade will be walking to the Firefighter parade located downtown on Main Street. We will leave the school at 10:30 am. Your child’s permission slip will go home in their Tuesday folder- PLEASE PLEASE sign and return on Wednesday.

On Friday at 9:30 am on the soccer field St. Peter’s will be a living rosary, feel free to join!
