Welcome back! February flew by in a breeze (or should I say, blizzard?) and now we turn the calendar to March at the end of this week. This year, I am sure we are all happy to usher out anything to do with a winter wonderland and welcome the sun. Bring on the cherry blossoms!
Much to make-up and much to do in the next few months. Our biggest and best fundraiser of the year is just over a month away. Invitations are going out next week for “Hollywood Nights” to take place on March 29th and 30th. Get your reservations in and plan for a night of glitz and glamour on the red carpet. We promise, you’ll be treated like a star!
With the snow that disrupted many of our February activities, we are trying to play “catch-up” by adding (or changing) some previous plans. One happening organized by our 6th grade Spirit Committee, and a favorite among students, is the candy grams sales and exchanges. With limited school the week of Valentine’s Day the sale was cancelled. No worries, it will reappear as Unity Day candy grams. Candy grams can be purchased at lunches and after school through Thursday. They will be delivered to students on March 1st in preparation for Unity Day on March 8th. Unity Day celebrates kindness, acceptance and inclusion. What better way to reach out to others than through a “Unity gram”?
This year the Science Fair and Engineering Fair had a modified schedule with a late start day and the cancellation of the evening family event due to icy roads. It was great to have so many parents available to view the wonderful projects from 2-3pm, but we know it was not optimal for many families. Again, we appreciate your flexibility. Special thanks to judges – Dan Cook, Lisa Middlebrook, Jim Vanderslice and Steve Adler for spending their day evaluating the projects. Their feedback was invaluable.
Finally, Lent begins in one week! Please join our school and parish communities, on Wednesday, March 6th for our Ash Wednesday Mass at 8:45am.
Have a great week!
