Greetings St. Ignatius Families,
During our Catholic School’s Week, we prayed for students by name four times each day to fit everyone in over the week. On Tuesday, our students wrote notes or drew pictures for their Family Group Members. We ended our Catholic School’s Week with a PJ day Read-In which the students all enjoyed. During our Catholic School’s Week, we raised money through a coin contest for Jean’s Place, a women’s shelter. The sixth class brought in the most money at $ 344.85, followed closely by Mr. Beseau’s eighth grade class with $ 257.93 and Mrs. Olson’s eighth grade class with $ 228.44 Honorable mention for our first grade class of eleven students raising $171.46. Our whole school raised $ 1,729.39 for Jean’s Place. WAY TO GO, GATORS!!!
A special thank you to Mr. Beseau and Mr. Roberts for editing our “Love In Deed”videos this week. Have you considered hosting a watch party among your school family friends or with your extended family? Watch parties can provide a fun way to participate in this interactive virtual fundraising event. There will be an opportunity to play a watch and win game or two during the live event! Next week, we will send out information for early registration. Tune in on Saturday, February 26th at 7:00 PM to join the party! Who will you watch with? In the days leading up to our “Love In Deed” virtual, interactive event, there will be an online silent auction with themed baskets and activity buy-ins with various school staff. Thank you for all of the amazing donations this week. Free dress passes have gone home with the students for this week’s procurements. This week’s raffle winner for a swag bag is the Bartels-Halligan family from our kindergarten class.
As the COVID cases recede from the Omicron variant, we are grateful for our students and families working together to hold strong to our many layers of mitigation. We strongly encourage students to wear a KN95 or N95 or double-mask with a surgical mask under a cloth mask. Please let us know if we can help your family meet this expectation. It is a good idea to send your student to school with two or three masks, so they may change masks as needed after recess or PE. Please remember proper masking in and out of school and maintaining social distancing are the best ways to keep our school community safe. Thank you for refraining from parking past the cones near the playground until after 5:00 PM when our preschool has closed for the day and our aftercare program is no longer playing outside. We appreciate all of the ways you help your students practice kindness during their activities outside of the school day.
May you take time this weekend to connect with others in peaceful ways.”Put on then, as God’s chosen ones, holy and beloved, heartfelt compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience, bearing with one another and forgiving one another, if one has a grievance against another; as the Lord has forgiven you, so must you also do.” Collosians 3:12-13
