Good evening parents and guardians. This is Mrs. Benson with your Weekly Update for Sunday, March 12 to Friday, March 17.
I am coming to you one day earlier as we have Family Mass tomorrow, Sunday, March 12 at 9 a.m. I cordially invite all of you to attend. Pre School, Pre K, and Kindergarten are sponsoring our Pancake Breakfast as well. Please attend Mass and stop by for breakfast. We would love to see you there! Daylight Savings Time begins at 2 a.m. on Sunday, March 12. Be sure to set your clocks one hour forward so you are not late for Mass or breakfast! We “spring forward” this weekend.
Hot dogs will be served on Monday, March 13 at lunch time for those students who pre-ordered. No hot dogs will be sold on Monday. Students must have pre-ordered to get a hot dog.
The carnival Committee will meet on Wednesday, March 15 at 5 p.m. in the Faculty Room.
If you have not signed up for your Carnival hours please do so to avoid being charged for not completing your hours.
Please note that as of Monday, March 13 no changes may be made to carnival hours. You must work the hours you signed up for. Anyone changing their hours after Monday, March 13 will be charged for their carnival hours at $75 per hour. We cannot have parents changing this late as we have no one to cover those shifts. Thank you for your understanding and your cooperation.
To get us all excited for our Carnival we have begun selling raffle tickets for a chance to win an XBOX. Tickets are being sold 6 for $20. We will continue to sell every day after school and throughout the carnival. The winner will be chosen randomly on the evening of Sunday, March 26.
As St. Patrick’s Day falls on Friday, March 17 which is a Mass day and we have Stations of the Cross on Thursday, March 16, we will be celebrating St. Patrick’s Day on Wednesday, March 15. Students have free dress. Students may wear appropriate jeans or other appropriate bottoms with a green shirt. Please remember leggings are not allowed. Those students who have not been in proper dress for Mass or Stations will not be allowed to take part in the free dress day. Notices went home to parents of those students who will not be allowed to take part in the free dress day due to uniform policy violations. If you have questions or concerns regarding the uniform policy feel free to speak with me directly.
Grade 6 and Grade 2 will lead the Stations of the Cross on Thursday, March 16 at 9 a.m. in the Church. Everyone is invited to attend. Students must be in full dress uniform for Stations.
On Thursday, March 16 we will send our class spelling be winners for grades 1-4 to the Knights of Columbus Spelling Bee at 4:30 p.m. at St. Bridget of Sweden.

If your child will be taking part your child’s teacher will let you know.
We will have our weekly school Mass on Friday, March 17 at 8 a.m. in the church. Everyone is invited to attend. Following Mass we will hold our Student of the Month Assembly. This month we celebrate those students who have excelled in Science and practiced the pillar of Respect.
