Catholic Schools Raise the Standards: In Our Parish/In Our Students

Last Tuesday morning, despite the icy and slippery conditions, our book fair was very busy. Many of our students enjoyed donuts with dad and muffins with mom while perusing the great selection our book fair has to offer.  We also celebrated Amelia Bedelia, children’s book series with grade level “buddies”. Classes met and worked on various activities pertaining to the Amelia Bedelia books including reading to the Kindergarteners and performing a Reader's Theater play.  In addition, for the past month Mrs. DeCroces’ art classes have been working on a word art project which is now being displayed in the windows of building two.

Catholic Schools Raise the Standards: In Our Nation/In Our Faculty, Staff and Volunteers

On Friday the students collected "hot stuff" to donate to Southington Community Services. Grade 3 was the winner of our competition, collecting 152 items and will receive an ice cream treat, dress-down pass and a “National School Choice Week” fleece scarf. Grade 2 came in second with 69 items and Grade 5 was third with 62 items.  And, Student Council honored our faculty, staff and volunteers with a homemade luncheon (soups courtesy of Glenn Prushinski) by serving the faculty and staff a delicious homemade luncheon as a thank you for their hard work. And special thank you notes written by the students were distributed to all.

Catholic Schools Raise the Standards: In Our Community 

Students baked cookies and made thank you cards which were delivered to our First Responders, including our first responder parents, to thank them for their service to our community and helping to keep us safe.

Catholic Schools Raise the Standards: In Our Vocations

Students attended First Friday Mass and Mrs. Guay and Fr. May spoke to the students about vocations throughout the week. The Student Council sponsored a Blue Ribbon Carnival for the students in the afternoon.
