- 8th grade has their Roncalli shadow day this Thursday, 9/15. They will leave by Roncalli bus first thing in the morning, and return after lunch. Students need to wear their school uniforms and bring money for lunch. Permission slips are coming home, via Mr. Setnor tonight and need to be returned no later than Wednesday morning to be able to attend.
- A BIG thank you to all families that helped either at our Student Council/Math Counts game booth, or with the festival in general!!! Everyone seemed to be having fun and enjoying themselves! 🙂
