Christmas parties will be held on the afternoon of Friday, December 19th. Parties will begin at 1:30 for Grades K-6 and 1:00 for Grades 7-8 (their party will end early to allow time for setup for the Christmas Eve Mass). Those who help out with classroom parties must meet Archdiocesan Compliance requirements. Please contact Kathy Mueller at the rectory if you have any questions regarding compliance.
PRESCHOOL OPEN REGISTRATION:
We are opening up registration for PreSchool for the 2nd Semester beginning after the New Year. We are very proud of our PreSchool program and welcome all children who are potty trained to come learn in our faith-filled program. If you or anyone you know may be interested in starting PreSchool after Chirstmas, please call our PreSchool Director, Jill Rees, at (636)390-0029.
St. Gertrude School is selling their own Christmas ornaments. This is a tradition that we are hoping to continue each year with a little different design each time. The ornaments cost $6. Money raised will be going toward future technology purchases. Please stop by the office and see them. They turned out very sharp (if you look at our Facebook page, even Borgia Grade School was displaying one of our ornaments).
DRESS CODE REMINDER:
Just a reminder that during the months of December, January, and February students are to only wear pants as the lower part of their school uniform. Shorts, skorts, jumpers, etc. cannot be worn again until March. Thank you.
CHAIRS FOR THE CHAPEL:
As you may have read in the bulletin, we are in the process of finishing our school chapel in anticipation of the dedication by Archbishop Carlson on Sunday, December 21st. We are currently looking for "chair donors." The plan is to put 40 chairs in the chapel. Each chair costs $25 each and we are looking for donors to help cover this cost. If you choose to donate money for a chair, a small label will be put on the chair stating who donated it. If you are interested in sponsoring a chair, please send your donation in an envelope marked "Chair Donor" to the office. Thanks in advance for helping us provide more opportunities for worship to our students.
