Sunday, January 29, 2023 Celebrating with Our Parish
We will gather to celebrate the 9:30 a.m. Mass. After Mass, we will hold an Open House for families. Drop by to see your child’s classroom, the new Innovation Lab and the large screen TV that posts our school and parish events. Please bring any new neighbors or friends that might be looking for school placements next year! We’d love to meet new families—especially of pre-school age students.
Monday, January 30, 2023 Celebrating Service
This year we will work with a group called “Dig Deep.” The organization helps to provide access to clean drinking water, wells, and cisterns to communities in the US. Classes will set a goal to provide funds for needed water related items. More details and a collection envelope will be sent home next week. The organization website is https://www.digdeep.org
Tuesday, January 31, 2023 Celebrating Our Students—Dress-Down Day, Absolutely No Homework!
Students may dress in blue for the day to reinforce our connection to water. Students will enjoy a pizza lunch. We’ll work on STEAM activities that relate to water usage, shortages and conservation. The teachers have promised NO HOMEWORK!
Wednesday, February 1, 2023 Celebrating Our Teachers and Staff
To honor them for all their hard work, teachers will be treated to a “long lunch” (11:30-12:30). Parent volunteers will cover the classrooms.
Thursday, February 2, 2023 Celebrating Our Faith
Students in Grades 4-8 will be creating “saint puppets” using paper bags, popsicle sticks and lots of craft glue! They will do research on the life of a saint and create a script for a short play about the saint. They will travel from class to class to share their plays, especially with the younger students.
Friday, February 3, 2023 Celebrating FUN!
We will revive our annual Germaine Music Review to close out our celebration. Each class will perform a dance for us on Friday afternoon. We’d love to have you join us in the gym at 1:00 to share i in the FUN. Many of the classes will have costumes for their performances. Students may wear them to school so we don’t have to spend a lot of time changing. We will consider it a dress down day for all. The teachers are even planning a skit!
