PARENT MEMO Friday, January 17, 2020
The New Year is starting out strong for us at school. We are busy working and looking forward to Catholic Schools Week, running from January 25 – 31. Stay tuned for communication regarding special fun days and events. Shout-Outs for this week will be announced next Friday.
The Student Council is sponsoring a Candy Gram Fundraiser called “Val-a-Gram.” Students can send a heart-shaped lollipop with a custom message to friends, family members, teachers, whomever they would like. Pre-orders are underway now. Please see attached order form. Val-a-Grams will be delivered on February 13th.
“SOUPER” BOWL MONDAY
The Student Council is also sponsoring a canned soup drive on Monday, Jan. 27th only. Any student who brings in a can of soup can wear their favorite sport’s team jersey with jeans on that day. It can be any team or sport. All soup raised will be delivered to a local food bank.
GIRLS SOCCER SEASON
St. Patrick Girls Soccer for all Middle School girls is accepting registrations this week and early next week. Grab your sign-up packet from the office. Practice will begin on February 10th. Go Shamrocks!
SAVE THE DATE
Hold onto MARCH 14th as the ST PATRICK’S SCHOOL FUN RUN! This is our biggest PTO sponsored event of the year, so please plan to attend. Tell all your friends, relatives, gym buddies, fellow racers….anybody you know who likes to run. IT IS AN OFFICIALLY TIMED EVENT and a great warm-up prep for the famous All American Run which takes place two weeks after ours. We will be sending more information home soon and flyers for you to post at your places of work, your gyms, your running clubs…anywhere that people could see about it. This is a great way to get your volunteer hours in as well. Don’t wait until the last minute to fulfill them as opportunities will be drawing to a close. For now, please save the date and spread the word!!!!
AMAZON SMILE PROGRAM
Please see the flyer below to support the school with your Amazon purchases. If you shop through Amazon, sign up for an AMAZON SMILE account. It doesn’t change anything about your account other than a portion of your sales is donated to the school. I signed up right away, and I already have money in my donation account. I’m a Prime user but it doesn’t change anything about that. All I have to remember to do is log in to smile.amazon.com instead of the regular Amazon. Everything else runs as usual. Please do this as it’s a way to support the school that is FREE TO YOU!!!! See the flyer below with details on how to enroll.
LEGO CLUB START-UP
Registration for Lego Club is underway.
