Dear Parents and Guardians:

Thank you to all who helped make our Grandparents Day so special. It was fun having so many visitors in our school. Thanks for the yummy cookies as well! There are still containers from those who sent cookies in. Please stop in and pick up if you are missing a container.

Fundraising Folder: In today’s envelope each family will be receiving a fundraiser folder which has information regarding St. Victor School’s two major fundraisers:  Brunch with Santa (Dec. 9) and Mardi Gras (Feb. 10).  The packet includes a variety of ways for your family to participate in making these two events successful.  These two event on average generate almost $60,000 annually!  With these funds we are able to enhance our school in a variety of ways: technology, curriculum, scholarships, professional development for teachers, drinking fountains for our students, etc.   So please, please, please take some time to read through the information and help us out to make these two events successful!  If you have any questions regarding the information in the packets, please feel free to call school, 325-3395, or email, joepeters@stvictormonroe.org.

Wednesday, October 25:  Next week we will welcome Tom Pease to our school.  Tom Pease, a local artist from Amherst, WI, who connects with elementary-aged student through song and dance.  His presentation was tailored to create a greater awareness of bullying issues, and give kids direct options. This program is sponsored by the Jacob’s SWAG Foundation, and Tom will be presenting to all the schools in Monroe. We thank Teri and Kurt Ellefson for including us in this opportunity.

October 27:  There is NO SCHOOL for the entire School District of Monroe on Friday, October, 27. Please enjoy your day off and your long weekend!

Halloween:  We will be celebrating Halloween on Tuesday, October 31.  Each class will have their own party, and then we will gather for our table and treat at 2:00 pm in the gym.  Each student will bring their own costume to school.  We ask that students refrain from bringing weapons with their costumes, as well as no blood, or overly gory costumes. 

All Saints Day:  November 1 is a Holy Day of Obligation for our Catholic Faith.  We will be attending mass on Wednesday, Nov. 1 at 8:30 am.  Please have students wear blue polos that day. After mass, we will head to Nilles Hall to view our 4th Graders Saints’ Fair projects.  These students have been working hard to prepare information about the Saints of our church. Please plan on joining us for this.

Women’s Club Underwear and Sock Collection:  We will continue to collect new underwear and socks for the Christmas Stocking program through November 1.  Please be generous if you are able, and thanks to all who donated. 

Thank you so much for all that you do to make our school great! We are blessed to be part of something special and amazing here.  If you have questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me at school, 325-3395 or email, joepeters@stvictormonroe.org.

God Bless,

Joe Peters
