A Note From The Principal’s Desk

A NOTE FROM THE PRINCIPAL’S DESK
Well, we have definitely hit the ground running in 2017! February will prove to be no different. We have many events on the calendar this month. There has been so much going on this month that you will definitely need to keep checking your calendar and reading the teacher newsletters carefully.

You still have time to register for Steps for Students and assist yourself in meeting your fundraising goal. I challenge all of you to “get in shape” both physically and spiritually by joining us that Saturday, February 18th. If you have not attended this wonderful family event in the past, you need to make it a priority this year. Come and join with our fellow Archdiocesan schools as we work together to raise money for Catholic education.

St. Augustine Catholic School will have their first Annual Father/Daughter Dance this year on Friday, February 24th from 7pm – 10pm. This is an opportunity to create a beautiful tradition between our fathers and their daughters. We encourage all our female students to bring their fathers or strong male role models to participate in this sweet and lovely evening. Make memories.
