Parent teacher conferences will be held Thursday, November 15th and Friday, November 16th.  The time you signed up for is your scheduled time; you do not need to wait for a confirmation.   If you are unsure of the time you signed up for, please email me.  I look forward to seeing you all!

Each Day 2 at 2:00 p.m. we have Community Time.  Community Time is spent with our "families" , a few grades together or even just the EC division.  This week during CT time we attended a Volleyball game.  The game was 8th grade vs the teachers!!!  The students made signs supporting each team.  They thought it was so funny to see the teachers play!

The Early Childhood Division has added more service projects into our curriculum this year.  This week we learned about Veterans: Who they are and What they did.  We then colored a picture and our older students wrote 'Thank you' letters to men and women currently serving our country.  The pictures and letters were mailed out to Operation Gratitude.

As Thanksgiving quickly approaches, we are reminded of the Holy Child Tradition to reach out to needy families in the community. This year, we have identified 13 local families who are in need of our support. We will deliver baskets filled with fresh food, groceries and baked goods to these families the morning of Sunday, November 18, 2018 beginning at 8am. This year we will be supporting families at St. Charles in Drexel Hill, St. George in Norwood and St. Laurence in Upper Darby. 

The Seventh and Eighth Graders will bake pumpkin bread under the direction of Mrs. Mueller and Mrs. Mosser. The 3rd and 4th graders will make cards and placemats to personalize the baskets. We kindly ask each student to help provide other items needed for the Thanksgiving dinner. Boxes for donations will be located in the back of the cafeteria. 

The Nursery class has been assigned 3 boxes of pancake mix and 3 bottles of syrup OR 2 large jars of applesauce
