Changing Weather, Changing Apparel
Just a reminder: all St. Mary's students are expected to be well-groomed, neat and clean. Children are asked to wear clothing proper for the season. Coats, jackets, or sweatshirts/hoodie are to be worn outside unless wind chill is 50 degrees or higher. Students will stay inside for recess if wind chill is 20 degrees or colder. Boots and warm coats are needed for playing on the playground when colder or wet weather sets in. Please mark boots and other items for school use to avoid mix-ups. Boys are not allowed to wear earrings at school. Temporary tattoos can not be visible. Flip-flops may be worn through the month of September and beginning April 1, if weather permits. Shorts can be worn thru Sept. 30 and after March 31.
Fall Fundraiser Successful
Our Fall Fundraiser was a HUGE success due to each and every sale that YOU were able to make whether it be one pizza, one bottle of perfume, or one tub of cookie dough! Our goal was to raise $21,000. OUR COMBINED TOTAL WAS $22,548.74!! It is simply amazing what we can all do when everyone works for one common goal! Avon sales were $8,786.60, Papa Murphy was $6,889.00, and Celebrating Home was $6581.00. Additionally, there were monetary donations that totaled $292.14.
We will be going to Fort Hays State University, Pre-K through 6th grades, on Thursday, October 17th from 12:30 - 2:30. This year, we will need individual parent drivers for the event. Driver forms and permission slips will be coming home this week. We must have enough drivers for the whole school before anyone will be able to go so PLEASE consider being a driver for this fun afternoon.
