Dear Parents and Guardians:

I am excited to announce that our school community collected $857 for the Carenet Baby Bottle Project! Thank you for your generosity toward this project. Please keep Carenet and all new mothers and fathers in your prayers.

Brunch with Santa: This is such a wonderful experience for our entire community. We need help decorating and the day of the event. There is so much to do that makes this event so special for our community. A reminder to please sell and return your raffle tickets(we have plenty more in the office). Please make sure you sign up to help.

Turkey Skate: Please mark your calendar for the Home and School Turkey Skate on Wednesday, November 27 from 4:30-6:30 at the Roller Den. We are encouraging each person who attends to bring either canned/boxed food or personal hygiene item or some pet food for our local food and pet shelters. Bring your entire family as they burn off some steam before the big Thanksgiving Day Feast.

Mass Attendance:  One of our special times during the week is when our students attend mass on Thursdays.  Realizing that many of us come from different faith backgrounds I just wanted to remind you of a couple of things:  Eucharist(Communion) in the Catholic church is reserved for those who have made their First Communion in the Catholic faith.  If you would like to come forward to receive a blessing you may.  A reminder that we do not keep hats on during liturgy, and finally, at the Catholic mass we usually don’t bring into church coffee mugs or other drinks.  If you ever have any questions about the Catholic faith or would like to learn more, please do not hesitate to give me a call at school, 325.3395.

Mardi Gras:  Please watch for an email that will be coming from the Mardi Gras committee. Again this year we are asking for donations toward baskets for the night of Mardi Gras. This year we are not doing one basket per classroom but rather an assortment of baskets created by our school families of various sizes and value. Please choose one or two or two items that your family would be willing to donate.  Again, thank you in advance for your support of this event.

 SCRIP: We are in our prime season for SCRIP sales. This is an easy way to raise funds for our school community.  Please purchase all your shopping needs during this holiday season with SCRIP cards.  You can purchase SCRIP cards in a variety of denominations from $5-$100, please call the office if you have questions.

Thank you so much for your commitment to St. Victor School! We are truly blessed to be part of this amazing community!   If you have questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me via email joepeters@stvictormonroe.org or school, 325-3395.

God Bless,

Joe Peters
