Dear 7th Graders and Parents,
What a wonderful time of year! We have many things going on with activities and field trips. Please check the calendar for updates.
BOOK FAIR this week
Students will be visiting the annual book fair during their library time on Thursday, Dec 7.
Road Trip Survey (yellow paper)
Please read, sign, and return the survey sent home Friday about our May Road Trip.
Art & Band Field Trips
Please note that students will be responsible for making up their missed work due to school field trips. I will be working with everyone to make sure their assignments are ready for them, and due dates accommodations.
Please let me know if you are planning to start your holiday break early and I can get assignments ready.
Students will be attending reconciliation on Thursday prior to our Holy Day of Obligation on Friday.
Martha’s Place Stocking
Our Student Council, ICRS students, and Sacred Hearts in LaConner are partnering together to spread Christmas Cheer to the residents of Martha’s Place. Last week, students colored Christmas pictures and cut snowflakes for the resident’s apartments. This week, we will be making paper chains and meeting with our Mass Buddy Classes to create prayers and name tags for stockings.
If students or families would like to donate small items for stockings you are welcomed, but not obligated. This is only if your student would like to add something, such as a candy cane, a note of encouragement, an ornament, hard candy, fun pen, etc. Items that you may already have at home. Thank you, ICRS StuCo
