Dear Parents and Guardians:
We are so excited to be back in person learning! We sure missed the energy, joy and excitement that students bring to our school. Thank you again for your support of virtual learning.
Mardi Gras Madness: Our Mardi Gras Madness event is fast approaching!! Saturday, March 13 will be here in 3½ short weeks! Thank you for all your support of our special virtual event this year!! It's been so great to see all of the creative ideas and donations that you guys have been drumming up to make the event a success.
1) All families that plan to "watch" the event are being encouraged to register for a "PARTY PACK" to complete their Mardi Gras Madness GameDay experience. The PARTY PACK includes 1 Suisse Haus Take-n-Bake 1-topping pizza, 4 Blumers Sodas, 2 Pecatonica Beers or 2 Sutter Home Mini Wines, 2 Custom T-shirts, Party Favors, and a Poster Board to decorate with your St. Victor Spirit. Packs sell for a great deal at $15 each (retail value is well over $45), additional pizzas and T-shirts can be ordered on the store as well. Pickups will be held on Wednesday, 3/10 or Thursday, 3/11 in the back patio area of Suisse Haus.
Order your PARTY PACK at our store site: svschoolmardigras.itemorder.com
2) On Saturday, March 13, you can join the live watch party at 7pm directly on our facebook page or via the stvictormonroe.org/mardi-gras site. You DO NOT need a facebook account. Please encourage any extended family and friends who don't have facebook to use the website. The event will be a continuous live video from 7pm-9pm, but we expect people to join/leave as they wish during that time. We will be running contests, games, raffles, etc throughout the event. More on that soon....
3) We have had great participation from families who have donated new items/baskets for the online auction. We still have lots of room for more. If you are looking for ideas, please reach out to a Mardi Gras committee member. Keep in mind that completed baskets with items you as a family enjoy sell well, hand crafted items sell well, or we can also use cash/Amazon cards to complete baskets we are building with misc donations.
PLEASE SELL YOUR MARDI GRAS MADNESS RAFFLE TICKETS!!!
Fish Fry Schedule: A reminder there is a revised fish fry (drive thru only) schedule for Lent. Fridays March 5, 19, and April 2. The time will be from 4:30-7:00 pm. More details to follow.
STAR SCORES: In today’s envelope is the STAR scores from our winter testing period. For students in 1st-5th grade there are scores for Reading and Math. For Kindergarten there is only one score for the Early Literacy test. You DO NOT need to return these scores back to school.
Thank you again for your continued support of St. Victor School! What a blessing it is to have such wonderful support from our parents and families. If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to reach out to me.
