FROM THE PRINCIPAL 

Thank you for your continued generosity to our Sisters of Notre Dame Uganda Mission. Tomorrow is our St. Patrick’s Day-themed out-of-uniform day for a donation of at least one dollar. And because of the warmer weather, I also announced to our students yesterday that they may also wear shorts to school!   ~ Mr. Hoyt

SCHOOL NEWS

SND Uganda Mission - St. Patrick’s Theme Out-of-Uniform Day: Don’t forget to bring in at least $1 for tomorrow’s out-of-uniform day. Be sure to wear your green or St. Patrick’s Day attire. If you don’t have any green in your wardrobe, wear your favorite color. All money collected will support our almsgiving project as we collect money to cover tuition for five students to attend St. Julie’s School in Uganda. We will have two more out of uniform days to support our Lenten collection - NCAA March Madness theme on March 21 and a baseball themed on April 4.

No School Friday: Remember that there is no school this Friday, March 15, due to teacher professional development day. 

Fourth Quarter Dress Code Begins Monday: With this Thursday being the end of the third quarter, students may begin wearing uniform shorts again on Monday.

School Spirit Wear: Spring is here—spirit wear is too! Please use this link for online ordering: https://stagnesspring19.itemorder.com/. The sale is open through midnight on March 24 and deliveries will be made to school on April 15. There are still winter apparel options available for those who missed the last order, along with several new items that you can choose. Also, there are plenty of Under Armour short-sleeve spirit wear shirts that were sold at Oktoberfest, including youth and adult sizes in dark pink and royal blue. Price is $15. Please email kenning.stephanie@gmail.com with size and child’s homeroom and I’ll send through kid mail. The school appreciates your support. Happy shopping!

Service Hours Reminder: This is your quarterly friendly reminder to update your service hours. Once our out-of-uniform dates are finished for our Lenten collection we will have an out-of-uniform day for students whose families have at least 15 service hours for the year.
