From the Principal's Desk

A Kolbe Christmas is this Saturday, December 1, 2018. Join us for this fun, all parish event! There will be live entertainment, food, silent auction items, book basket raffles, basket of cheer raffle, upscale bakery, children crafts and much more!

Reminder: all students MUST bring their LUNCH and a DRINK on Friday. No lunches will be served because the MPR will be closed for A Kolbe Christmas set up. Students will eat in their classrooms. Students can wear their A Kolbe Christmas tee shirt with gym pants on Friday to advertise this major fundraising event.

Hope to see you there!

We need your help in making these basket a huge success! Our deadline for donations is this Friday, November 30th. Checks payable to “St. Max HSA” are preferred, but cash will be accepted. You may send your donations to the attention of Karen Pirozek.

Thanks for your continued support of A Kolbe Christmas!
