Mar. 2 News – Monte Carlo and MORE!

Cleaning
We would like to thank all the parents and children who came on Sunday and participated in the “cleaning party”. Your hard work is greatly appreciated!

Library Notes
After our break for Religious Education Congress, this librarian and the library are beneficiaries of that experience. As the former, I come away knowledgeably renewed regarding my faith and the worldwide church. The latter gains a couple dozen books, donated to enhance the collection of new books available for your students. Of course, while there’s much personal delight in seeing students borrow our library’s books, there’s always a bit of anguish having to remind borrowers of overdue books. Fortunately, that number is currently a minimal 17 people, out of the hundred plus library transactions that take place on a 4 day a week basis. Thanks for the family support for such responsible use.

Monte Carlo
Saturday, April 23rd, will be a fun night of food, drinks, gambling games, prizes, raffle baskets, friends, and fun! Details of this great event will be sent out soon!

Hot Lunch
Enclosed you will find a hot lunch survey that we would like you to complete and return by Monday, March 7th, as we would like to start this new lunch program service as soon as possible. Thank You!

Graduation Pictures
The eighth grade graduation pictures will be taken on Friday, March 11th. Boys are to wear button down shirt and tie and will change into their polo shirt after picture is taken.

Box Tops
Please continue to send in your Box Tops as this is a easy and profitable fundraiser. When your child returns a completed box top form with their name on it, they will receive a free ice cream pass to be used on Thursdays.

Spelling Bee
The annual Knights of Columbus Spelling Bee will be Tuesday, March 15th, at Our Lady of Peace School, for grades 1 – 4. On Thursday, March 17th, will be the Spelling Bee for grades 5 – 8.

Feb. 24 News – Spring Cleaning and MORE!

Cleaning
We are looking for volunteers to help with a little “early spring cleaning” of the school kitchen. We would like to give the kitchen a clean, fresh and organized look. The more volunteers, the more that can get accomplished. Of course, this work will go towards your required twenty-six service hours. Cleaning day will be on Sunday, February 28th. See enclosed flyer for needed supplies. You may contact Marty Lopez 818-266-7125 or Brenda Castaneda 818-355-5693. Thank You!

Library Notes
In case you haven’t noticed, the hallway book displays outside the library are of a two-fold nature. On the portable racks are the theme-based or new books available for borrowing. And, on the table just outside the library door are the books looking for a home. The latter books variously represent the following: duplicates, being offered to make shelf room for new acquisitions, or dated or items, and/or donated books that are beyond our K-8 level. Bottom line, with thanks: we hope that your family will find items of interest, either to borrow, to keep, or to share with others.

Parent Meeting
On Wednesday, Feb. 24th, at 7:00 pm, in the school hall, our next parent meeting will be held. Two important topics of interest to all will be covered. First, “Re-Think Your Drink” evaluating the nutritional value of a variety of drinks. Sample drinks will be given. Second, Royal Dining Catering will give information, a sample menu, and free samples of their food. Royal Dining will be providing student lunches for the remainder of the school year.

Lenten Soup
Every Friday, through, March 18th, there will be a Lenten Soup Supper in the school hall. After you attend Stations of the Cross in Church at 6:00 pm, come to the hall for a light soup supper.

Second Trimester
Our second trimester ends on Friday, March 4th, and report cards will be given out on Wednesday, March 9th.
