We have been selected to host the 6th Grade Showcase this weekend on Saturday. Some of our ambitious Jr. High parents have volunteered to help with this and we are very appreciative of all who have stepped forward. Having such a small 6th grade this year, (only 5 kids) makes this an interesting event. Good luck to our 6th graders who will be competing against other local schools. Show that Colt Pride and make us proud!
The kids were excited to see the charts in the lobby updated with sales of sold raffle tickets. The school has sold 36% of their goal and they need to reach at least 75% to win their sundae bar at lunch during Catholic Schools' Week. Keep selling those tickets! The classrooms are also competing for the highest percentage sold. As of now, here are the results.
1st Grade 55%
2nd Grade 41%
3rd Grade 37%
4th Grade 35%
5th Grade 55%
6th Grade 20%
7th Grade 45%
8th Grade 21%
Good luck to all the classes and KEEP SELLING THOSE TICKETS! The next turn in date will be announced soon.
Thanks to the generous support of PTO and the Boosters who have helped make this exciting event possible...I’m very excited to announce that an author and illustrator, Mr. Will Hillenbrand, will be coming to talk, teach and present to the St. Catherine school children this coming Tuesday, December 10, 2019!
Mr. Hillenbrand is a local author and illustrator. He lives in Terrace Park and has had nearly 70 picture books published for children (from ages infant to teen). Please go to his website to learn more about him, and to get your child excited for this special opportunity. www.willhillenbrand.com
Mr. Hillenbrand will sign any book that is purchased, and it will be returned before Christmas break. There will be an order form emailed and sent home soon. A book always makes a perfect Christmas gift, and St. Catherine will receive 20% of anything purchased. No pressure to buy anything, but just wanted you to know that books will be available for purchase.
Welcome back Jenn Desmond to our cafeteria! Jenn is back but on very limited duty. Please sign up for a day or two in the cafeteria to help out. Many of you probably have days left to take off before the end of the year. Please use one of them to help us out. It is only for a few hours and your kids love to see you here!
The students did a great job of bringing in their baby items for the Rose Garden Mission Baby Shower. This was a great way to celebrate the Immaculate Conception with everyone. If your child did not get to bring in something and would still like to, they are welcome to bring something in next week and drop it in the office.
Thanks to everyone for sending is so many great items.
