From the Desk of Mrs. Wolfe
Dear Our Lady Star of the Sea School Families,
What a busy and fun week we’ve had! This year’s Catholic Schools Week was our best one yet, especially in terms of helping others! Our Food Drive and our Pennies and Pencils Drive were a big success, thanks to all the donations that the children brought to school. First the Minute To Win It Contest on Monday and the Science Fair on Tuesday; then our Crazy Socks and Slippers Day on Wednesday, the 8th grade vs. staff Volleyball game on Thursday, and ending up with our Spelling Bee on Friday - the children and staff had a great week! The volleyball match was close – the students won the first game, the staff won the second game, and then we had to play a third game to declare a winner – and the staff prevailed once again! The students sure gave us a run for our money this year! Our contestants in the Spelling Bee will represent grades 5-8: Hazel D and Shannon M, gr. 5; Addie C and Xander H, gr. 6; Aaliyah G and Brooke O, gr. 7; and Matthew J and Ben R, gr. 8. Good luck to you all!
You’ve probably heard the news or received an email by now explaining that we have a new website! Our School Commission has had this on their radar for a while now, and thanks to Christine Cooney, Marsha Frisch, and Martha Groneman, it is finally ready! It is much more “mobile-friendly,” than our previous site, and I look forward to hearing comments you may have regarding the changes.
