Last Friday, we had the return of the Talent Show! The school gathered to watch twenty-one acts which included musical performances, dancing, gymnastics, magic tricks and even a pogo stick routine. It was nice to get a chance to see our students presents their talents again after a two-year hiatus. They all did a fantastic job!
Thank you on behalf of all the teachers for the appreciation shown toward our staff last week. From the coffees, snacks, and gifts to the delicious lunch organized by Parent Association chair, Elyssa Schuessler, everyone felt the expressions of gratitude. With wonderful parents covering the classrooms, staff got to sit together and eat lunch for an entire hour. Not a possibility during the regular school day. We all know how busy our parents are and taking the time to thank our staff, meant the world to all!
Our school “Families” are gathering on the next two Wednesday mornings to prepare for what every student would say is the best day of the school year – Field Day! The day of fun and games is scheduled for Friday, June 3rd. Families, representing different countries, compete against one another at a variety of stations. Mrs. Scheller is always looking for parent volunteers to help. It’s a great way to join the fun. If you are interested in helping, contact Mrs. Scheller for more information.
The ”Marvel-ous” auction numbers are in! What a great success! Once again, we owe tremendous thanks to auction chairs, Ester and Kevin Burkhart, and Kim Tossman and Sean Matt, along with Development Director, Monica Flora. Total raised was $446,887, with Fund It accounting for $215,800 of the total. Expenses came in at $96,971 for a final net of $134,116!
Please join us this coming Friday, May 27th at 8:45am for our annual May Crowning Mass. Our second graders, who recently received their First Eucharist, are participating in the crowning and the readings at Mass. This is the first Mass that we have been able to invite parents and parishioners to attend. For everyone’s Covid safety, please wear a mask during the Mass.
Finally, I can’t believe Memorial Day is next Monday. Where has this school year gone? Never did I think we would still be dealing with Covid protocols well into May, but that is the reality of this virus. Thank you to our vigilant parents who are keeping students home if they are experiencing any symptoms and continuing to test them before sending them to school. Our school cases are beginning to decline, but it will take all of us continuing to being cautious to keep Covid at bay.
Have a great week!
