On Sunday we begin our celebration of Catholic Schools Week.  All are invited to the 9 a.m. mass followed by Open House in the school.  Students should come in their uniform and will be receive a free dress pass for a school day.  This is a wonderful opportunity to see what your child is doing in the classroom.  It is also a chance for you to take a sneak peak into 2nd grade.  Our theme this year is: Learn, Serve, Lead, Succeed.
