It’s finally here! Next week we will be celebrating Catholic School’s Week here at SJV! This is a very special week for all those children, who have the privilege of receiving a Catholic School Education, to celebrate their academics, selves, friends, family, and their school. Each day is devoted to a different theme or happening. One of the bigger events is Grandparent’s (Special Person’s) Day. We will be celebrating this on February 5th, beginning at 8:00, with an all school Mass. Please DO NOT let the name narrow the chances of a student not participating. We here at SJV understand the different dynamics of families. We would love for each child to feel included and participate in this beautiful day. If a grandparent is not available, please consider asking another family member or close family friend. It should also be noted that, the day is a half-day with NO aftercare. Students will leave by 11:30 that day, with their grandparents, special person, or parent.
If you have not turned in your RSVP, please do so by Friday, January 29th! If you have misplaced the copy sent home last week, you can find one below or as an attachment in this week’s newsletter.
