Social Justice Members: We have a request from this parish program.  Some members are going to Haiti to visit our sister parish and would like to take dolls of color for children.  They ask that the brown or black skin dolls be 12 inches or less and be washable. They will accept donations now through January. Dolls may be brought to our school office.  Thank you!

 Mass Days: The 3rd & 4th   graders will be planning the 9 a.m. Mass. Please join us! 

Tis the Season. . . .

Once again, it is that time of the year for the student Christmas Shopping Day.  This is not a fundraiser.  It is simply for the students to enjoy, and for some who may not otherwise get a chance to shop.  It is scheduled for Thursday, December 5th .

Please put your child's money in an envelope and put the student's name and amount enclosed.  The gifts are $5.00 and lower.  Also, let us know who they are to buy for

(Grandma, Sister, Uncle, etc.), the age of this person, and the amount to spend.  This helps us greatly. Please remind students they are not shopping for themselves. 


Thanks to De Willman for organizing this event.  She has been called “The Super Shopper!” If you would like to help, contact De for details.
