A Note from Mrs. Grant

Thank you for attending Parent/Teacher Conferences on Friday, November 1st. I truly enjoy each of your children and I loved being able to share our progress with you. This week the students will have Ms. Harper from Cardinal Newman coming in to test them on Wednesday, November 6th after Mass. This test will only last one hour and is used when scheduling classes for Cardinal Newman in the Spring. If your child is not going to Cardinal Newman, the information could be used at their next school as well.  

Snack Shack is going very well! Please remember to check the list for your child’s week to be our Snack Shack managers. Our next Snack Shack manager is Mrs. Grant. I have chosen Camilla and Connor to work Snack Shack on Friday, November 8th. I will be bringing in extra snack that week. Snack Shack will be on Friday, November 8th. 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!
