Don’t forget to come to the January CIA meeting this Monday at 6pm in the Spanish/Music room! The meeting is being “hosted” by the first grade, which means first graders will share a little something that they’ve been learning in their classroom to open the meeting. Then Mrs. Sneed will provide childcare for those who need it.
We have many spring events to talk about – the Chili Cookoff, Acoustical Evening, Book Fair, 5K and Catholic Schools Week!
We hope to see you there!
