Hi Families of 402,
We are in the season of Lent. We have been discussing what WE can do for prayer, fasting, and almsgiving. Ask your child about the purple Lenten journey that they should be thinking about each day. I will be collecting the purple sheets after Easter to see what they focused on during Lent. Thank you for supporting them.
Please sell and return raffle tickets ASAP! We need them all accounted for. We appreciate the support for our school!
We are researching our topic for ACADEMIC/STEM Fair that will be on April 10th. A bright orange packet with all the details will be sent home. It is important to pick a topic that is interesting to the student and also related to science, math, engineering, art, career, history, music, or literature. We have a unique opportunity to send 3 students to the BIG BANG CATHOLIC SCHOOLS STEM FAIR at Holy Family High School on April 21st. Students who would like to be considered for this STEM fair must do a project related to science, technology, engineering, or math.
Cold weather items need to be brought each day for recess! Coats, snow pants, boots, hats, and mittens are needed every day for recess. Please remind your son/daughter to bring these items. This is MINNESOTA! You never know what the weather will be each day!
Thank you for your support! God Bless.
