I hope everyone enjoyed the extra day off on Monday. What crazy weather we are experiencing! If your child ordered Hot Lunch for last Monday, please take that as a credit on your child’s January Hot Lunch.
It is time to move into our busy and fun-filled December.
Christmas Concert – Advent begins on Sunday and our Annual Christmas Concert is the perfect way to begin this holy season. Students in Grs. 1-5 will participate, but all parents are welcome to attend. Students should arrive at 2:30 which is when the doors will open. If you arrive earlier, you are welcome to wait inside but will not be allowed to enter the gym until 2:30. Students will wear “Sunday best” clothing – no jeans or sweat type pants. Mr. Hank Steerman will tape the concert – you will have the opportunity to order a copy.
Vision and Hearing – Next Monday students in Grs. Preschool, Kindergarten, 2nd and 8thgrades will have their vision tested. Students in Grs. Kindergarten, 1st, 2nd and 3rd will have their hearing tested.
Reconciliation – Students in Grs. 3-8 will be participating in the Sacrament of Reconciliation next Thursday.
Santa’s Workshop – Next Thursday and Friday (12/6 & 12/7) is Santa’s Workshop. The elves are already working hard to make sure there are many things that your child may choose to be a perfect gift for a loved one. Please remember that Grs. Preschool – 5 are asked to donate gift bags and Grs. 6-8 are asked to donate $5 gift cards. Your child should bring the shopping list you will find in the e-envelope.
Pictures With Santa – Just Picture This (owned and operated by parishioner Hank Steerman) will be taking pictures at the Stratford Mall this year. He is offering to donate 20% of his sales back to St. Isidore School on Monday, Dec. 3rd and Monday, Dec. 10th. Please consider visiting the mall and getting a cute picture of your child either of those days.
Gala Update – The Gala Committee is working hard behind the scenes to make sure that Your St. Isidore Gala 2019 is the best yet. Many thanks to the parents who donated gift cards! Those dress down passes will be sent out soon! We still need a few more restaurant gift cards and some bottles of wine ($15 and higher please). Please consider a donation to support the Wine and Dine.
Sponsorships are also still available. These are varying amounts. Please contact Beth Schultz for more information. Be sure you have saved the date – February 23, 2019.
