Dear St. Thomas Family:
This Sunday marks the beginning of Catholic Schools Week, and we have lots of activities planned to celebrate our beloved school.
Monday, January 27: Students may wear their favorite Superhero T-shirt with uniform bottoms if they wish. Also, those parents applying for the Bishop’s Endowment Scholarship must turn in their packets to the front office by the close of school Monday!
Tuesday, Jan. 28: Star Wars Day! Wear your favorite Star Wars T-shirt with uniform bottoms. Also, we have a special assembly to kick off our Walk-A-Thon this year. In your contracts, we list $160.00 as the minimum required from each family. However, we will collect additional donations on a special website. Students who collect more than the minimum will have the opportunity to earn prizes for the additional donations. We will send home information concerning this event. (The actual Walk-a-thon takes place Thursday, Feb. 6.)
Wednesday, Jan. 29: Grandparents Day!!!! One of our favorite events. Grandparents are invited to visit the school starting with Mass at 9:00. Mass is followed by a reception with light refreshments in the Hall. Then, Grandparents, please join your children in their classrooms. We are pleased to provide lunch (hot dogs and chips) for Grandparents. (Students may also have lunch with Grandparents, but they must purchase their hot dog and chips.) Students: wear your liturgy uniform for Mass.
Thursday, Jan. 30: Talent Show day! Dress in the year’s fashions that you like best. Parents and guests are invited to see the talent show.
Friday, Jan. 31: College Day! Wear your favorite college shirt!
Sounds like a great line-up! (We can still use some help on Wednesday preparing and serving lunch. Call the front office if you can help: (951) 689-1981.)
