We're looking at the end of first term and Thanksgiving Break just around the corner, which also means Parent-Teacher Conferences. A notice went home on Thursday, 11/6/14 asking four time preference of the two days, Tuesday, 11/25 from 1:30 to 7:30 PM, and Wednesday, 11/26 from 8:00 AM to 12:00 PM. Please return that form to school Monday, 11/10/14, evben if you are unavailable at those times or feel you don't need a conference.
We will kick off the annual Penny Battle on Friday, 11/14/14. This effort benefits the annual Sisters of St. Joseph Thanksgiving Dinner for the homeless and homebound, and the monety we collect reaches beyond that to other agencies fighting hunger. Look for those loose pennies and spare change - the jugs will be out and ready starting Monday, 11/17!
