Catholic Schools Week

Love the Wine You’re With annual wine and brew tasting is February 11th from 6-9pm at Basalt Winery. Please mark your calendar, invite your friends and family and get your tickets today. This is a popular event, which benefits the school’s general fund. The general fund provides pay and benefits for teachers and staff, building heat, etc.

Auction T-shirt order forms are due tomorrow. If your order form is not returned tomorrow, the office will estimate the best size for your child. We would appreciate a $10 donation for each t-shirt. Additional t-shirts can be purchased for family members at $10 per shirt.

ACH automatic monthly deductions will be available starting in February. Please follow the directions on the attached sheet. We highly recommend setting up ACH. Kelli will send out bills the first of the month, which will include tuition, lunches, extended care, and SCRIP. The automatic deductions from your account will be on the 16th of each month. All families who sign up before March 1st will be entered in a drawing for a $20 Happy Day gift card.

It continues to be cold and flu season please continue to keep your child(ren) home when they have a fever and are sick. We appreciate your continued support of keeping our school healthy.
