Dear St. George Families,
4 weeks to go and lots of activities are coming your way. The 8th graders are getting excited and sad as their last two weeks of St. George approaches. For many students, it has been an 11 year stint!
Thanks to Griz Sarria and her crew for another fabulous event celebrating our diversity. Thank you to all our communities who graciously shared their family recipes! We are so blessed by the unique beauty of each and every culture in our school. I heard such terrific accolades about the food, music and dance. I am so bummed I had to miss the event this year, and I look forward to next years!
Congratulations our community for our school fundraising efforts this year. We have surpassed all last year's totals.
Tonight is our Spring Concert at 6:30pm in the church. All children are asked to arrive by 6:15 and meet their teachers in the back pews of the church. Mrs. Rogel and the kids have some wonderful music planned that will set all our toes a tapping.
Calling ALL SCHOOL FAMILIES whether you attend St. George church or not: We'd like 100% family participation at our last School Family Mass of the year this Sunday at 10:30. All children are asked to bring a flower for our vases in our May crowning procession of Mary at the start of Mass. Let's fill every pew this Sunday as a school family. I'll have a quick fun video of our students sharing what they love about our school. I'll be looking for greeters, gifts carriers and ushers on Sunday morning so be sure to volunteer if you’d like to help.
Final tuition/fundraising and service hours statements were sent out with the youngest child in your family on Monday. Please contact Mrs. Ebreo if you have any questions.
Congratulations to Ms. Fredette and her third graders. In their environmental studies of what makes good conditions for gardening, they wrote informative essays some of which where recently published in the Seattle Rose Society's May 2013 Rose Petals Newsletter. I have attached their newsletter for you to read some words of wisdom from our "budding" journalists. See page 7 and 9 for their articles.
2013-2014 Student Council Campaigning begins with candidate speeches this coming Monday, respectful advertising during the week and voting on Friday. Student government is one avenue in which we encourage student leadership and service learning.
Save the DATE June 7th 6:00-8:30pm
Family Potluck and Volunteer Appreciation Celebration
PTA is hosting an end of the year Family Potluck. All families are invited for hot dogs and will be asked to bring either a salad or dessert for 10 to share in our final fellowship event of the year. Come see acts from our most recent Talent Show in their encore performances!
I will also be honoring all of our volunteers for their hard work this year as well as announcing our Sue Byrd Volunteer of the Year Award. In appreciation of all the ways you shared your time and love for our community, I will be having a wine/ cheese bar for all volunteers during the evening as a small token of thanks for all you do to support the students and staff at St. George. We are blessed by your continued love and support!
Mark your calendars for June 22 and 23. Come paint your child's classroom with me! Many hands will make it go faster. You bring a paint brush or roller and I'll provide the lunch. Contact Mrs. Fontaine with your RSVP! Due to the potential mess, no kids please!
