As we planned for Monday’s Student Release Drill I kept thinking “plan for the best and expect the worst.” I was pleasantly surprised how well the afternoon went. In the first half hour we released over 200 children to their parents/caregivers, and we had only a handful of students remaining after 3:00. Thank you to staff, children and parents for being willing participants in the drill.
Our Dinner Dance Auction takes place in two days. This is not only one of our two major fundraisers, but a great community builder for our school. I look forward to seeing you there.
This coming Saturday children in our parish community will be receiving the Sacrament of Reconciliation for the first time. Please keep them and their families in your prayers.
