Grandparent's Day is Thursday, May 6. All grandparents are invited to attend Mass with their grandchild/grandchildren and then come back to their classroom/s to visit with their teacher/s and view the work the students are doing. It is always a fun afternoon and the students look forward to having their grandparents visit.

As the spring weather becomes an everyday occurrence please drive a little more carefully. Children are out enjoying the warmer weather and are not always as careful as they should be biking, inline skating, skate boarding, and playing. Thanks for keeping an eye out for our prized possessions.
