Thank you to all the families who attended mass this past weekend. It was a great start to Catholic Schools Week. We have a busy but exciting week ahead of us!

Report Cards: Report cards were sent home this weekend. If you did not receive yours, please check with the office. I am available every morning (except Friday) before school starts for a conference if you’d like to discuss your child’s progress.

MONDAY (1/30): Community

Fire Department: The Beverly Hills Fire Department will be visiting at 1:30pm.

Baskets: Our first school wide activity for Catholic Schools week will be collecting baked goods for our community helpers.  Each student is asked to bring in a store bought, pre-packaged baked good.  It does not need to be anything big.  We will put all the baked goods into baskets and pass out to the local library, fire station, police station, post office and Good Shepherd Church.  We will also include Good Shepherd brochures and thank them. We would like to send the baskets out on Monday but if necessary we will wait to collect all the baked goods until Wednesday.

Free Dress: All the students will get free dress on Tuesday. Please follow the free dress guidelines outlined in the parent/student handbook. The students will also get extra recess.
