Gaels Weekly Update - December 4, 2013
I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving. It was nice to spend time with our families wasn’t it? We are now in that “Holiday Season”
Mode. We are busy preparing for the Christmas Concert. It is so nice that we can call it a Christmas Concert. Our theme is Christmas Around the World but of course we will be celebrating the True Meaning of Christmas the birth of Christ. Our Christmas Concert will be next Tuesday, December 10th at 6:30. The children should be in their classrooms at 6:15. Please obey all traffic patterns and do not park in the Fire Lanes or at the front entrance. We want to make sure everyone is safe.
The St. Brigid Student Council is having a Bake Sale at lunch time every day this week. The proceeds will be sent to a Scholarship Fund being set up in the name of our retiring Archbishop Henry J. Mansell. We will also be having a dress down day this Friday, December 6th for the Scholarship.
The Home/School Association is getting ready for the Holly Jolly store. This will take place on Friday, December 13th. They need volunteers to help coordinate this event for the children. You may contact Mrs. Mealha to get more information, please call the school office and we will get a message to her.
The second and fourth grade classes are heading up a toy drive for the month of December. We are collecting new unwrapped toys to be given to children in need. Please consider bringing in a toy for our toy drive.
Our JV and Varsity Basketball teams are busy with their basketball schedules. Please remember if your child’s grades are not a C or better; they will not be eligible to play on the team. We have several students who continue to have missing homework assignments. They will also be considered ineligible to play if they are not turning in assignments. We love sports, but our academics always come first! Come out and cheer on the Gaels.
We have had several students who are tardy on a regular basis. Please remember that three tardies equals a ½ day absent. It is so important that your child(ren) arrives to school on time. It not only affects them but the other students in their class. If your child is late, a parent must accompany them to the office and sign them in to school.
Thank you for your cooperation!
May the Peace of Christ be with you!
