I hope that everyone had a wonderful 'Green' day today and that you have a wonderful St. Patrick's Day weekend.  As Monday is St. Joseph's Day, we will be having an out of uniform Red, White or Gold day, this will be communicated to the parents by the school, you do not have to send a separate email.

Please note that Tuesday, March 20th is an election day and that the library is a polling place.  This means that you cannot cut through the library at ANY TIME on Tuesday.  Preschool teachers in the PS building, please note that I want EVERYONE to use the stairwell by the elevator, as 3911 will be used as an entry point, and I do not want the students to be walking/passing through the area where people will be entering/exiting the building.

With field trips coming up, please make sure that Carol has your chaperone names at least one week in advance.

Kindergarten teachers - Living Stations will be at 1:00 pm on Friday, March 23rd.  The Holy Thursday prayer service has been confirmed and will be at 9:45 am.

Below is information on Spring Clubs, for all interested.  

Have a great week!
