"Rend your heart and not your garments. Return to the Lord your God, for he is gracious and compassionate, and abounding in love, and He relents from sending calamity." Joel 12:13.

Although the weather was threatening we made it through the week only using one snow day. It could have been worse. Up to this point we have used four snow days, which means if we if we don't use any more snow days for the remainder of the year, the last day of school will be Monday, June 18, 2018, but we still have February and March to get through. I will keep you posted.

I apologize for the delay in the distribution of report cards, but with so many students absent because of the flu during midterms I wanted to wait until all students completed them. The flu is still in high gear so please do everything you can to protect yourself and your children. Mr. and Mrs. Coll have been working diligently to disinfect the building to keep germs at a minimal.

First and Second Honors will be given out on Monday, February 12 during our morning prayer and assembly. 

Students in grades 5 and 8 will be taking the ACRE Test next week. The test must be completed by Friday, February 16.

Classes may be celebrating Valentine's Day with their classes on a different day than Wednesday of next week because Wednesday is also Ash Wednesday. Students will be attending a morning liturgy at 8:30 am to receive their ashes. Ash Wednesday is a meatless day and day of fasting as well.

There will be a Family Bingo Night on Saturday, February 17. See the Friday Folder for more information. Volunteers are needed.

Our annual Father/Daughter Dance is scheduled for Friday, March 2. The theme is Magical Masquerade. The dance goes from 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm. More information can be found on the Friday Folder. Also, keep checking the Friday Folder to find the weekly winners of the calendar raffle.

I know there has been some scheduling and rescheduling of the eighth grade field trip. The date of the field trip has been finalized and it will take place on Wednesday, May 30, 2018. Field Day has moved Thursday, May 31. The rain date of Field Day is Friday, June 1, 2018.

Finally, it is gratifying to hear that so many of last year's graduates who are attending Catholic high schools are doing so well. Many of them are taking Honors courses and and getting A's. It is a testimony to our outstanding faculty, students and parents who work so hard to develop the whole child through our Lord, Jesus Christ.

God bless,

Tim Dunnigan
