Dear Parents,

Look for your Wednesday Folder on TUESDAY next week as the End of the Year Picnic on Wednesday will disrupt our normal delivery. YEARBOOK NEWS: Students who purchased their Yearbook received it yesterday – this may prompt others to want to get one of their own. Good news: we have extras. To purchase, bring $12 to Mrs. Mattson. GRADUATION CHOIR INVITATION: We are seeking students (grades 2 – 7) who would like to volunteer to sing in the choir during the 8 th grade graduation Mass on Friday, June 7 th . The siblings of the graduates have been invited to join the choir, but we would like to add more children to the choir. Please contact Mr. Pleger if your child would like to volunteer.
