News & Events
Our days are shorter now, leaves continue to fall from the trees, and winter is looming ever closer. It is time to celebrate the beauty of God’s earth. The Christmas season is upon us with the first Sunday of Advent on November 27.
Morning valet drop off will begin on December 5. Please be sure to pull your car up to the sign to allow for several cars to drop off their passengers simultaneously. The doors will open at 7:50 am until 8:15 am. Any child arriving after 8:15 am will need to enter through the library entrance. Students arriving after 8:20 am will be marked tardy. If you need care before 7:50 am, please sign up your child in the early morning extended day program.
Parish commitment forms are due prior to December I. Any parent that does not have a current commitment form will receive the unaffiliated tuition rate.
Please be sure that you park in a marked space during dismissal. Never park in back of the rectory or parish center, next to the garages, in the fire lanes, along the side of the Church or in the traffic circle. Parking in these unmarked spaces presents a danger to all our children. If you are not able to park in a marked space, please park in front of the parish center or on Franklin Street.
Remember the calendar money is due December 15. All families are required to pat1icipate and return the proceeds for a minimum of 10 calendars. These would make a great Christmas gift!
