Weekly Family Newsletter

Thursday October 20, 2016


Fr. John’s Weekly School Chronicle

·         Tuesday was an exciting day as our 7-8 grade girls’ volleyball team ran into some very tough competition. Until Tuesday they had been undefeated, but unfortunately came up against a really talented team from Gethsemane. I was truly proud of how our girls battled back after getting behind in the first game to win. While they lost the match, they are well prepared to start playoff competition.

·         With no school this Friday and next, it is two weeks of school without a school Mass. I was pleased to hear our teachers talking about what a great loss it is for us when we don’t have Mass as a part of our week.

·         Sister Margaret is now home, but is still easing back into activities. She reports that with the nice weather she is enjoying short walks outside by her home. We look forward to when she will feel well enough to be back at school with us.

Readings for next Friday’s school Mass can be found here:

(Our next school Mass is actually Tuesday November 1, 2016 – All Saints Day)

·         Conference Meals on Tuesday, October 25th – we need TWO more main courses, someone to assist with set-up at 3:30pm, and someone to assist with clean-up starting around 7pm.

·         Book Fair on Wednesday, October 26th – we need as many hands as possible to tear down the book fair and pack it up for Scholastic. 

·         Spooky Family Fun Night on Thursday October 27th – we are in need of MANY 1 hour game/activity shifts to be filled, help with set-up/clean-up, as well as food/drink/prize donations.  We need everyone’s involvement to make this a memorable night for the kids.
