Dear School Families,
Thank you to all the parents who helped prepare the special St. Patrick’s Day lunch for the students. It was a very special event. The food was delicious and the students enjoyed eating together in the Gym.
Thanks to everyone who worked hard to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day last Saturday night…It was a village effort from the Knights of Columbus to the many that assisted in the prep work.
REQUEST FOR PRAYERS: Prayers are requested for those who are sick, those who are recovering from surgery, those who are hungry and homeless, and those who need our prayers.
