We are looking forward to celebrating Special Persons’ Day on Thursday, November 21. New this year, our Special Persons’ Day will be on the Thursday morning before our Thanksgiving break. This will be a full day of school for students. There will be no school from November 25th – November 29th.
At this season of Thanksgiving, we especially remember all of the wonderful people in our lives – please extend an invitation to your special person to join us for this day of thanks. Students in Kindergarten through 8th grade will be in school uniform for this important day (no gym uniform please for this day). Preschool families: please follow directives from your child’s homeroom teacher regarding your Special Persons’ Day schedule. Each Special Person needs to be accompanied by an adult if the guest is 18 years old or younger.
Our Special Persons’ Day Mass will also include our Blue Ribbon Award Presentation with honored guests in attendance. There will be a special hospitality in the community room after mass to celebrate this amazing achievement.
