The big week is finally here!!!!  After months of preparation, our 5th and 8th Grade will be putting the finishing touches on the Living Stations of the Cross. Our first presentation is on Friday, March 23 at 1:00 pm.  Our final presentation is on Sunday, March 25 at 4:00 pm.  All students should arrive in the Social Hall no later than 3:00 pm on Sunday.  There will be no photography permitted during the presentation of the Living Stations of the Cross, as this is a prayer.  We will have photo opportunities immediately following the conclusion.  Please send in all additional costume pieces (khaki shorts/skorts, white shirts, and sandals (black shorts for soldiers)) in a bag marked with your child's name.  These will be kept at school until the final performance.  Please let me know if you have any questions.

Iowa Tests are this week as well!  Please make sure that your 5th grader gets a good night of sleep and a healthy breakfast before school.

Our classroom is running low on Paper Towels, Tissues, and Clorox wipes!  Any donations would be greatly appreciated!
