HAPPY SPRING BREAK!

MARCH 11, 2021 E-LETTER

Dear parents,

Thank you to the 151 families who joined the AGM by zoom last night. We addressed all questions submitted by email and in the chat. There was much to discuss, and I wish to thank Father Richard our Pastor, Cidalia our Chair, Roger Gil our Treasurer, for their important messages and presentations. I also wish to thank the rest of our supportive PEC for all they have done especially this last year during all the changes required in participation, in maintenance and in hot lunch and fundraising. Again, I wish to congratulate all our parents and families for your continued commitment to Catholic Education and your love and support of our school and parish community. As mentioned last night, we are blessed to have such a caring Catholic family of students, parents, educators, staff, PEC and Parish.

***Please remember to return your registration packages by Friday, March 12, 2021.

Students will have their confessions scheduled for the week after Spring Break during the beginning of Holy Week. Teachers have informed their classes of their day.

LENT BOXES
Lent boxes have been sent home. All boxes are due back by Friday, April 9th.  We ask that ALL students label their box with their first and last name. We also ask that you print the amount collected on the outside of the box. Please use this opportunity to encourage your child to give alms (to do charitable work).

MARCH HOT LUNCHES

Credits will be applied to the accounts for those that have ordered on these dates. Should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact Cristina Morra at oloshotlunch@gmail.com
