Top 20 Topic Of The Month
In the month of October, we are focusing on the importance of being "Above the Line." We live above the line when our thinking is positive and in our best interest. Sr. Fabiola also spoke with the students about how creating a life of prayer keeps us above the line and close to God. For more information about this important Top 20 Topic, check out chapter 4 in the Top 20 Journal.

Parent Visit Day
Please join Home and School for the first Parent Visit Day of the school year on October 23rd. What is the Home and School Association? It is the support for our wonderful community, connecting the school staff with the families at home! We'll meet in the cafeteria after drop off for coffee and treats. Parents and younger siblings are then welcome to visit their child's classroom starting at 8:15 am. Stay until 9 am or just for a few minutes - whatever works for you. See you then!

School Uniform Fall Sale
The fall school uniform sale is going on between October 16th and November 5th. Check out all of the great deals here.

Care-A-Thon Update
A good deal of pertinent information about this year's Care-a-THON went home with the students last week! We are confident that we will hit our goal this year with the help of all families' fundraising efforts. Please get those donations in sooner rather than later! There are some great classroom and individual prizes that await. More information about that coming soon!

School Music Video
We are filming this year’s video on October 25th, 26th and Nov 1st! Students should be in uniform and looking sharp, as we aim to include every child who wants to be in the video. Thank you for your support of this fun and educational marketing effort!

Halloween Safety
The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children has created great fliers for parents with simple reminders about personal safety during Halloween festivities. You can check these out below to plan ahead.
