Dear School Families,

We are getting into my favorite season of the year now. College football season has started, the temperatures are hopefully cooling off, and the Chicago Cubs are about to crush my soul once again. Most importantly we are edging ever closer to the trinity of kid holidays: Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas. I mention this because it also a very busy season around school and it is critical that you read this bulletin and check the calendar regularly to help plan events for your families accordingly. We do our best to keep you updated but it only works if you read. Of course the people who need to hear this aren’t reading this right now so I am preaching to the choir…
Anyway, enjoy all the fun fall events!

WALK-A-JOG-A-THON:  You did it! You raised $25,714.24. This will send our 7th graders to Caritas Camp for one week next month. And it will help pay for other science activities and equipment etc. Thanks again to Heidi Nuti and the many volunteers, runners and those who came to help and cheer the runners and walkers on. It is such a great event for all.

REQUEST FOR PRAYERS: Prayers are requested for those who are sick, those without work, those who are hungry, homeless and for peace in the world.
