THANK YOU to all of our families for the amazing Teacher Appreciation Week! The tremendous amount of delicious meals were scrumptious. The flowers and notes were beautiful and precious. The teacher gift card raffle was a fun treat. We are so blessed to have wonderfully supportive parents partnering with us on the journey of educating and guiding our students to grow into the people God created them to be.
Thank you for the amazing turn-out for our first Dine Out at Chipotle Monday night. Our school will receive a check for $858.94 from the event! Way to go, Gators!!!
As we head into Mother’s Day, we wish all of our mothers, step-mothers, grandmothers, mother-figures, and all special women influencing our students, the very happiest Mother’s Day! Last week, our students made paper sunflowers to post around the school to remember to pray for peace in our world. We hold all of the mothers, grandmothers, and children in Ukraine and all places with unrest in the world in our prayers this weekend. May your children, God-children, or grandchildren find special ways to show their love and appreciation for you this Sunday.
PARENT EDUCATION NIGHT: We will host a virtual Behavioral Health Parent Night this Monday, May 9th from 6:00-7:00 PM through Google Meet. All parents are welcome, however the virtual presentation is geared toward families with students in 5th-8th grade.

Volunteer Opportunities: We need Art Literacy volunteers for kindergarten through fifth grade classes. Please let Mrs. Frangipani know if you are interested in Art Literacy volunteering. We need jog-a-thon volunteers for Thursday, May 19th. And we can always use more outdoor recess monitors. Volunteers must be up-to-date with C.A.S.E. training and show proof of vaccination. Please consider sharing your time and talents with us!
Dismissal reminders: 1) If you are parking to pick up your middle schooler, and you are across the street, please get out of your car and cross to the school side of the street. We are seeing some of our middle school students further down the sidewalk not paying close attention to traffic when crossing the street. 2) If you are socializing for a short time after dismissal on the church side, please supervise your students and keep them in sight. Please remind them to refrain from playing on the parish office steps and porch and stay out of the landscaping bushes. Thank you for your as- sistance with these matters.
Enrollment: We are actively seeking preschool students! We have room in kindergarten through third grade for next year and a few spots left for sixth grade too. Please spread the word about our wonderful school to all you know.
We wish all of our mothers and special women a blessed Mother’s Day. “She is clothed with strength and dignity, and laughs at the days to come. She opens her mouth in wisdom; kindly instruction is on her tongue.” Proverbs 31:25-26. Mother Mary, pray for us.
