Dear Parents and Friends,
This past Tuesday, our students had the rare privilege of visiting the traveling statue of Our Lady of Fatima during its tour of Hawaii.
Next Tuesday we celebrate the Feast of St. Catherine of Alexandria. Please have your child in Coyle Hall by 7:45 so that we can begin our procession to the church together. They are asked to bring a flower or lei for the statue, and a non-perishable food item for the food bank. Following mass we will unveil and bless another sacred art gift created by Mrs. Sally Harrison, a mural of St. Catherine. (This piece of sacred art is being sponsored by Kauai Dreams Realty.) We will then enjoy refreshments and a school wide Field Day. We ask that parents bring potluck snacks to share with our community to Coyle Hall. Our celebration ends with lunch with family and friends. We look forward to sharing the day with you!
Thank you to the parents who are organizing the field day activities! They can use more help. Please see Toni McCartney if you can help.
We are preparing for our Lights on Rice Parade float which is spearheaded by the kindergarten parents. Anyone who would like to join in this fun project is invited to attend the planning meeting in Mrs. Britt Cocumelli’s kindergarten classroom on Monday at 2:30 pm. Lumber, lights, and decorations in maroon and gold are requested.
During the first school mass of December, the feast of the Immaculate Conception on December 8, we will collect toys to donate to Catholic Charities to be used during their Santa’s Workshop event. Each year our children donate stocking stuffer type toys that they would enjoy receiving to give to a child who would otherwise not receive Christmas gifts. Thank you, in advance, for your generosity!
It is also time to mark your calendar for January’s annual Rummage Sale, January 24 & 25. Save your gently used treasures until we can begin collection in mid-January.
Madame Corbo and our children are preparing for our annual Christmas program, and are in need of a few props you may have handy. Please contact Mme. Corbo at [email protected] if you have a long blond wig, cowboy hat, or hay that they can borrow.
