There are two Catholic High School Open Houses this week. Pope John Paul High School in Slidell is Thursday, beginning at 4:00 PM and St. Paul High School in Covington is Saturday beginning at 1:00 PM. All families considering Catholic high school placement for their children are encouraged to attend. This initial visit officially begins the registration process.

Report cards will be sent home later this week.  I congratulate the students, teachers, and families on the hard work these grades represent.  It is hard to believe that we are already into the second half of the first semester.

Friday is the 50th day of school.  Students and staff are encouraged to dress in 1950’s clothes on MONDAY, October 29th to celebrate reaching this milestone.  

October’s service project, Relay Recess, has been rescheduled for Tuesday, October 30th.  All funds raised will be given to the Bogalusa Relay for Life sponsored by the American Cancer Society.  Students can wear pink or purple shirts with uniform bottoms and participate for $1.00. For $5.00, they can spray their hair pink or purple and paint their fingernails pink or purple. Any donations you choose to contribute will be added to the school’s donation.  Thanks for your generosity.

Wednesday, October 31st is Halloween. Students can wear Halloween pajamas or shirts and jeans --NO COSTUMES.  Mr. Valenti will lead the school in a lively game of Bingo at 2:00PM.  There will be NO After Care on Halloween. Please make your plans accordingly.

Thursday, November 1st is All Saints Day.  All students will attend Mass. Please wear dress uniforms unless the student has chosen to dress as his/her favorite saint—biblical-–not the NOLA football Saints. HA! HA!

You are receiving the November calendar today because there is lots of information about the beginning of next week. Please post it somewhere so that you can check it daily.  Children are disappointed when they arrive at school and see their classmates ready for a special event that they forgot about. Since most of our parents work, I am reluctant to allow students to call  for forgotten items. Thanks for your cooperation.
