I have included the final schedule for Friends and Family Day, which is this Monday, October 2 (is it REALLY almost October already!?) Wow, has time flown….
All parents, grandparents, neighbors, aunts, uncles, etc. are invited to join us for this event, featuring mass, book fair, Spirit wear sale, music program, and a special lunch. Please remember that our preschool and pre-Kindergarten students do not have class on Monday. Those students are welcome to attend with family and older siblings that day.
The schedule is below for your planning. Also attached to this email is an order form for lunch that day. We will NOT have regular lunch service, but we WILL offer a special lunch featuring a Chik-fil-A sandwich. Of course, you may bring in your own lunch or pack one as well. A hard copy will also go home in backpack mail. Please look for it, as it is due back this WEDNESDAY so we can order to make sure we have enough food for everyone.
