Dear SPC Families,
Thank you for a fantastic FUN Run last week! While the money continues to come in, we are thrilled to announce that we have raised more than $160,000! Thank you to everyone who came to cheer on the runners and our security team, who was on hand to ensure the event was safe! Again, there are not enough thank yous to Mrs. Tarasievich for all her coordination and energy!
Spirit Wear Day Tomorrow
Students may come dressed in spirit wear tomorrow. Students may wear any appropriate shorts or pants.
First Responder Mass RSVP November 7th
We invite all our St Paul of the Cross parents (of students in grades K-8) who are doctors, nurses, police officers, firefighters, paramedics, EMTs, and other emergency professionals to attend this special Mass on November 7th at 10:00am. We ask that you come in uniform and arrive around 9:40. You will line up in the gym and process in with your children. We hope you can join us in thanksgiving for their service and prayer for their safety. Students in grades K-8 will attend the Mass with their first responder parents. IF YOU ARE A FIRST RESPONDER WHO PLANS ON ATTENDING, PLEASE CLICK HERE
Tomorrow, we will send home data sheets. Please verify that your family information is correct and return it on Monday. If your child returns the sheet on Monday, October 2nd, they can wear spirit wear!
Please do NOT park in the Summit Condos across from the school (on Ridge and Summit). Please do not use the driveway as a thoroughfare to school. That is private property, and we need to be good neighbors!
