Friday we celebrated the 100th anniversary of Our Lady of Fatima. We began the day with Mass and prayed the Rosary as a school after lunch. Mr. Sanislo, our art teacher, gave every student a print of a painting he did a number of years ago showing the children and Our Lady of Fatima. This print should fits in a16 X 20 inch frame if you choose to frame it for your child.
Parent/Teacher Conferences: It was great seeing you Thursday! I look forward to talking with the rest of you on Tuesday, Oct. 17th. I will have my phone set at the 14 minute mark to remind myself to stop talking! I hope that will also help keep you on track to get to your next conference.
No School: Just a reminder that there is no school Wednesday, Oct.18th- Friday, Oct. 20th due to MEA.
Please remind your child that no Pokémon cards or fidget spinners are allowed at school. Thanks for your help!
Have a great week!
