One month and counting….

There are many “things” going on now and we will continue to be busy until our last day on May 25th.  I will do my best to keep you informed, but please utilize the school website blogs, Facebook page, and Jupiter account to stay on top of it!

Many thanks to our VIPs and special guests for making last Friday one for the books!  We appreciate all that you do to make memories for the children.  I hope your family enjoyed the day.

Congrats to our 2nd graders who made their First Holy Communion this past Sunday.  We are very happy for you!

Grab the AquaNet and your favorite dance shoes! Our annual Dinner Auction is May 14th, and we would love to see you there at our 80’s Prom! Families are asked to help sell raffle tickets (10), and that information can be found online, too.  Thanks for your continued support!  We appreciate you!   Ps. Our class would LOVE to win a pizza & ice cream party!

Please also note that ISTEP online testing continues this week and will run into the first week of May.  Thanks for your help in avoiding appointments, tardies, and absences during this time.
