Dear Parents and Friends,
These last weeks of school are full. What a beautiful musical concert was enjoyed by all in attendance Thursday evening. The children’s voices were magical as they filled the church. Thank you parents for making concert attendance a priority. Today our 7th and 8th graders presented their plays to the student body leaving us with the message of the importance of friendship, reconciliation, and the joy of summers past and present. The second performance is this evening at 6:00pm if you would like to attend. Tomorrow we hold our Field Day events and Volunteer Thank You BBQ. We hope you will join us. Friday is our Yearbook Signing Party and if you haven’t purchased a yearbook for your child we have some extras for $55 dollars.

Dec 4, Middle School Night event in the Marin IJ.was so touched by the generosity of our students in response to the devastation the Philippine earthquake inflected upon his hometown of Bohol. Engaging in a game of Money Olympics, $1650.00 was raised by all the classes, which will be sent to Father Al’s home parish and school. He has asked us to continue holding the Philippines in our prayers as they continue to be challenged with natural disasters.
