Posts from the ‘Grade 2’ Category
Saint John Vianney Students (from Pre-K to 8th grade) wanted to show their appreciation to all of the golfers and sponsors of the 3rd Annual “Tee off for Technology” golf tournament. Students not only decorated boxes for the golfers’ boxed lunches, but they also took the time to write and address Thank You notes to each golfer and sponsor. The students are very excited to be a part of the event, and they understand that they are the ones who will benefit from the funds raised. All funds raised will go to upgrade technology to SJV.
