 Standardized Testing

Standardized testing will take place October 3rd through October 7th. The Iowa Assessments will be administered to students in grades 3-8. Second grade students will take the Cognitive Abilities Test (CogAT). Students in 5th grade will take both the Iowa Assessments and the CogAT. It is imperative that every student is present and on-time to school every day of testing.

Scholastic Book Fair

The Scholastic Book Fair will take place in the school library from September 26th-30th. Families are welcome to shop from 3-4 pm everyday. We will also have a special preview day after 11 am Mass on Sunday for families and parishioners. Please join us!

Fall Portraits

Fall portraits will be taken next Thursday, September 29th. Students in kindergarten through 8th grade MUST be in Mass uniforms for the pictures. All students will have their pictures taken regardless of whether picture packages will be purchased. This will ensure every student is represented in the yearbook.

Save the Date!

The Fall Festival is back! It will be held on Friday, October 28th. More information will be available soon.

Blessing of the Pets

Tuesday, October 4th is the Feast of St. Francis of Assisi. Because of this, Father Mike will be blessing animals in the grotto area of the church parking lot from 5:30 to 6:30 pm. He will bless any animal brought to him. Please be sure all dogs are on a leash.
