Wednesday, February 1: Day of Service
-The most important day during this week of celebrating our Catholic identity is the Day of Service. Our students are constantly learning about our world and how we can be stewards of creation and bearers of light. Whether it be feeding the hungry or caring for the poor, our children become lifelong learners with the knowledge, compassion, and desire to make the difference that our world needs. Please look for updates in the coming weeks from your child's teacher about special service projects.
