Happy Easter!  

We will be attending all school mass on Wednesday for our May Crowning.

We are set for our field trip on Friday, May 3, to Chabot Space and Science Center.  We will be leaving school at 8:30 a.m. and returning about 2:45 p.m.  Students may wear jeans with uniform tops.  Students should bring a bag lunch and snack.  We will be able to eat snack before we enter the center.
