A Note from Mrs. Grant

During this short week, we will be celebrating the beginning of the Lenten season by attending Mass on Ash Wednesday. As we begin our Lenten journey this week, we will discuss fasting, almsgiving, and prayer. Then, on Thursday we will have an 11:30am dismissal and no school on Friday.

Please remember to check the list for your child’s week to be our Snack Shack managers. Snack Shack has been going well and the students are having a great time selling the snacks and seeing the results of their hard work on the financial report! This week we will not have Snack Shack. Parents remember we still have plenty of snacks already so do not spend more than $5-$10 on snacks. Thank you for supporting the sixth grade in their business endeavor.

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!
