Nickels for St. Nick

St. Nick loved to help people less fortunate than him. One way we can be St. Nick for others is by sharing what we have with those who need it. We heard that St. Nick may visit Holy Spirit on his feast day, Dec. 6. Starting on Nov. 28, we will be collecting nickels for St. Nick to give to Sarah’s Oasis. Look everywhere for nickels! Each classroom has a jar to fill with nickels... Read More >

Dismissal Procedures

This is a gentle reminder about dismissal procedures. When students are dismissed at the end of the school day we expect that they will be picked up, or if they are "walkers," that they begin their trek home. Teachers supervise dismissal from 2:50–3 p.m. At 3:00, students that are not picked up are asked to wait inside the building. Students who walk home are asked... Read More >

Before checking out books for... Read More >
