May we recognize God’s presence in our daily lives.
May we seek God’s wisdom in facing life’s challenges.
May we be God’s compassion to the underserved.
And may we always be God’s unconditional love to all we meet.

Join in our annual celebration of Catholic Schools Week/Winterfest!

You may dress out of uniform this week according to the theme for each day. Here are the remaining themes:

  • Thursday: Throwback Thursday: Pick a decade. Dress to match.
  • Friday: Mismatch Day: Stripes + plaid = okay! Matching doesn’t matter today. 

Please remember, all out-of-uniform guidelines from the Student-Parent handbook are in effect. This means “No yoga pants, halter tops, tank tops, or bare midriffs; no sunglasses; and only knee length shorts and skits will be permitted” at any time during the week. Students in violation of these guidelines will be required to wear a uniform from the loaner closet.

Silver Cohort: Play Bingo during lunches TODAY!

The spirit stick is up for grabs, whoever can locate it will win a gift card! Once you find it, bring it to the Student Activities Office. The spirit stick is only hiding in general locations within the building, no classrooms, offices, or restrooms. You cannot look for the spirit stick during class hours; only during passing time, lunch, before and after school. 

Check back here each morning for the new clue! May the odds be ever in your favor!

Thursday’s Clue: At almost every sporting event we need to make sure we have this piece of equipment on the sideline in order to save lives in case of an emergency. Our Athletic Trainer, Cindy Schlafmann, is an expert at using it if needed! Where is our spirit stick now?

B.L.K. (Black.Liberated.Knowledgeable) is hosting a talent show this month to show off student talents as part of Black History Month.

See Ms. McAdams in the Guidance office with any questions.

Orders must be placed by noon on the first day the student attends in-person instruction (Monday or Thursday) and picked up outside the kitchen at the end of the school day on the last day they attend (Tuesday or Friday).
  • Students participating in full distance learning may also order a meal kit that contains five breakfasts and five lunches each. Orders should be placed by noon on Thursday for pickup at 3:00pm on Friday. Families may use this form to place the order.
