From the Desk of Mrs. Wolfe
Dear Our Lady Star of the Sea School Families,
Several families, the Sisters, and I have recently made visits to Holy Trinity and St. Olaf, to speak about our school and the opportunities we offer for Catholic education, and invite them to come to our next Open House which is next Tuesday, March 13, from 5-7 p.m. (We will be visiting St. Gabriel this coming weekend to do that same thing). I am so appreciative of the students who had the courage to get up and give a short talk at these other churches: De’Ani A; Ella B; Demika C; Abby F; Melissa F; Grace G; Grace G; Jacobe L; Marleigh, Hugh, Aidan, Fiona and Moira O, Isabella R, Matthew R, Max and Freddy T; and Landon W! They did and will do a fabulous job!
Between now and the end of the month our teachers of grades K-8 will be teaching another Safety lesson with the Virtus program. We are including the opt-out letter for any of you who wish to excuse your child from that class. Please return opt-out letter as soon as possible to your child’s teacher.
S.C.O.P.E invitations are on their way! Please remember that this is our major fundraiser each year, and each family is expected either to attend or work the event. It’s a great opportunity to rack up those fundraising volunteer hours too! Many thanks to Genevieve Cowan for heading up the volunteer group for this big evening!
