Park Clean-up Field Trip

Welcome back!  I hope you all had a nice spring break. 

We will be going on our field trip to Cloverdale Ball Park tomorrow to "Lend a Hand" in keeping our parks clean.  We will be leaving the school at 1:00 to walk to the park, and should be returning around 2:20.  Thank you to all the parents who volunteered to come along with us and help supervise.  We could use a couple more volunteers, so please let me know in a quick e-mail if you are able to join us on this trip, after all.  We will be outdoors the whole time and it will likely be raining.  Please make sure to send your children to school with a warm raincoat (with a hood) and boots to wear.  Thank you!

Bazaar Jars

Precious Blood’s Annual Parish Bazaar
Saturday, November 25th  
9 am to 2 pm


We are all very excited that our parish bazaar is coming up in less than two weeks!

One of the favorite games at the bazaar is the Jar Game.  All students are encouraged to fill a jar with candy, treats, stickers, toys, etc., decorate it and return it to school.   At the bazaar, the children will then be able to win these jars. The class that brings in the most jars will win a pizza party!!! 

All jars will need to be dropped off in the classrooms by Friday, Nov. 24th.  Thank you!
