Saturday’s Harvest Fest and Trunk or Treat was another fantastic evening of fun and community-building as we continue to celebrate our 20th anniversary. The costumes were exceptionally creative, and the lip sync competition and band were AMAZING! This annual event is made possible only by diligent, selfless effort from all our parent and student volunteers. Thank you to everyone who put in time and monitored the various stations of the festive grounds. The children and parents were giddy with excitement! Special thanks to our PTO, led by President Erica Seidel. This incredible team worked tireless hours planning and organizing the event for the sheer joy of building school community.
And there are many others who donated time and services to make this event possible:
Yesterday our school grounds were once again electric with excitement, laughter, fun, and games with classroom parties and the preschool/kindergarten costume parade. It was wonderful to see so many parents helping, playing, and enjoying fun, fall festivities. I even saw some 5th-grade moms playing tag on the field! The best part of the day, however, was watching the 8th graders cheer on our “little ones” as they paraded around our campus. If you missed the excitement, click here for a short video of all the fun!
Today is the official end of the 1st trimester and, as you know, Parent-Teacher Conferences are next week (see schedule below). If your plans change and you find you must change your conference time after signing up—no problem, we understand! Kindly notify the teacher so he/she may open up your time slot for another parent. The teachers will truly appreciate your courtesy.
Finally, we will be attending our last all-school Massin the current St. Benedict Church building on Monday, November 1 at 9:00 AM in celebration of All Saints Day. Starting Friday, November 5 at 8:15AM, we will begin celebrating our all-school Masses in the MPR while the church is under renovation. Thank you to the parents and junior high students who have already signed up to help Mr. Daniel set up for Mass every Friday morning in the MPR.
