Principal’s Post – 2/1/18


Tomorrow we will culminate Catholic Schools Week by celebrating Mass with Bishop Peter Christensen and the other Treasure Valley Catholic Schools at St. Mark’s.

Catholic Schools Week  

We are having a great Catholic Schools Week including fabulous Saint costumes today.  We are closing in on our goal for the Learning Lab.  Tomorrow is our last day collecting money for this local nonprofit.  If we reach $1,000 students will earn an extra Spirit Day next week.  If we double our goal and raise $2,000 we will have a couple more Chick-fil-A Mondays.

First Reconciliation

First Reconciliation for our second grade students is February 3.

MOSS and 6th Grade Students

Thank you to all who attended last night.  If you were unable to attend, I have sent a text message for you to register your student and emailed a copy of the presentation to all families.  If you did not receive these, please notify Mrs. Granvall and we will work to update your contact information.

Course Information and Selection for 8th Grade (Students Headed to BK next year)

Freshmen (18-19) new student course selection information night is February 21 at 7 pm in the Bishop Kelly Library.

Late Start Wednesday Student Yoga with Mrs. Elwer:

Late Start Yoga has been very well received, and we will be bringing it back in the New Year!  If your student has not tried it, encourage them to give it a try.  We are going to offer yoga in the gym Wednesday mornings from 7:45-8:15 in January and February.  Mrs. Elwer, the k-4 PE teacher, and Mrs. Phillips, Librarian, will lead students through yoga poses to get students active and ready for the day.  Students who come early on Wednesdays will have the choice to stay in the cafeteria or outside (depending the weather) or to go to the gym for yoga.
