Dear Parents,

Our field trip to Berry Hill Farm is on Monday.  Please bring a pillowcase to bring your baby pumpkin home in safely.  A name on the pillowcase is always a great thing!

Marathon was this past Saturday, October, 7th.   Our final pepfest is on Tuesday, Oct. 17th at 1:30!  Please send in your last donations! Check out  a quick link to all the calendar events for Marathon, school activites, and conferences:

The Coon Rapids Fire Department shared a few fire safety tips with us on Wednesday.  Even Fire Chief John Piper was there!  They taught us it is important to have two escape routes from your house in case of a fire.  Do you?

Thank you to the parents I had a chance to meet with for conferences on Thursday night.   I look forward to talking to the rest on Tuesday night. Conferences will be 15 minutes and held in the gym.

Friday marked the 100th anniversary of the Fatima.  Mass was held on Friday to commemorate this wonderous miracle. We are so excited to announce the special adoration chapel that is being created in our school. My “old” second grade room is now a special place to adore Jesus!

If for any reason you need to contact me, please feel free to email me at any time or call before school or after school). You may leave me a message on my voicemail, also. Again, I want to welcome everyone back to school and I hope that we will have a blessed year.
