Your help is always appreciated! The time is from 11:00am until 12:15pm. This time is counted toward your mandatory family volunteer requirement.

Remember ALL volunteers MUST be VIRTUS Trained!

Salvation Army – Angel Tree, Thank you for taking ALL of the TAGS!!!

The Salvation Army Angel Tree; Unwrapped gifts can be dropped off at the Church or the school during regular operating hours.  (all gifts are due by December 16th)

Thank you for your help in making a child smile this Christmas.

Thursday folders

Each week on Thursday, your child will be bringing home papers in the Thursday folder.  Please take out the paperwork, return anything that you are asked to send back, sign the folder and return it the next day.  We ask your help with this task so that we do not have to send multiple reminders and extra copies of required documents to you each week.  It is important that your child take responsibility for bringing home the folder and returning it the next day. Thank you for your cooperation!

Go, Crusaders!
