Sweatshirts and Sweaters:
Please label all sweatshirts and sweaters. No iron clothing labels are a great way to do this. You can write your child's name on them, they stick on (no ironing), and stay on in the washer and dryer. Martha Stewart makes a good one. I got some at Staples years ago for my children.
Permission slips will be coming home soon. Chaperones must have completed the required safe environment training, cleared fingerprints, and turned in the forms for driving (see office for these).
St. Vincent de Paul:
Please pack a healthy sack lunch to give to the poor on Friday. We will decorate a bag on Thursday, you can fill it and bring it back on Friday morning. Items to include: PBJ sandwich, apple, granola bar, and a water. These are not refrigerated so don't include things that need to be refrigerated.
Due Monday 9/25/17. Please bring in a photo of your pet. We are making a poster for the Blessing of the Animals Mass.
