allergies to peanut butter. Please monitor student “cold” lunches and
snacks. We want to keep all students safe and this is one way you
can help us with that mission!!

any issues with the new online system, please let the office know.
We heard of no “glitches” and want to be as efficient with our
communications as possible.

because we feel it is a perfect fit. Catholic Education provides quality
education, religious and moral formation, and is essential for the
future of the Catholic faith. Catholic Radio gives listeners the
opportunity to grow deeper in their faith. It gives listeners the courage
they need to evangelize and share their faith with family, friends, and

to support Catholic education! A number of Catholic schools will be
represented, each to be included in the financial blessings of this
initiative. All 9 Catholic Community Schools are included in this match
