A Note from Mrs. Grant

This week we have Monday off. I will also be sending home second quarter report cards in the Tuesday folder. Please review these with your child. We will also be preparing for Catholic Schools Week, which is January 26-February 1.

Please remember to check the list for your child’s week to be our Snack Shack managers. This week our Snack Shack managers are Zion Roberts and Gus Corbett. Snacks and the receipts must be brought in on Monday. Receipts for reimbursement can be brought to Mrs. Davis in the office with a note detailing it is for Snack Shack. Thank you for your support!

Below is a list of the students who are on Honor Guard this week. If your student is participating, they must stay until the end. Please do not pick them up during car line unless I have been given a note. Thank you for your support!
