Dear SPC Families,

Happy Memorial Day Weekend!

I want to thank Mrs. Dohr and her army of volunteers for a successful Scholastic Book Fair!

Congratulations to our 2nd graders on their First Holy Communion! This Saturday, Mrs. Galvin’s class will receive the sacrament of First Communion. Please keep them in your prayers.  

The 6th and 7th grade class enjoyed a wonderful day in Springfield yesterday!  While it was a very long day, our students received compliments on their behavior at every stop along the way! I was so proud of all of our students. Thank you to the brave chaperones! 

I pray that all the mothers and mother figures enjoy a blessed and joyful Mother’s Day!
