Happy anniversary to St. Philip Neri! Tomorrow we begin our celebration of the 65th anniversary of St. Philip Neri Catholic School. (The church was founded in 1946,) We will have cake tomorrow. We are out of school on Friday, September 20 for the annual Archdiocesan teacher in-service. On Monday, September 23 the students may dress like the 1950’s or they may wear any spirit shirt from the past-with jeans or shorts. Please remember this guideline for the pants: no short shorts, no leggings, no jeggings, no yoga pants.
Today in morning assembly on the anniversary of the 9/11 tragedy, the children prayed for all victims of violence and terrorism. The middle school explored this tragedy from many angles in social studies today.
The deadline for permission slips for Pray Walk Talk is this Friday–day after tomorrow. Pray Walk Talk is attended only by 1st through 8th grade students. The retreat will be held on Friday, September 27. I look forward to kicking off our food drive.
Tomorrow we will be taking school pictures for the yearbook. Every child will have his/her picture taken. Children in kindergarten through 8th grade are to wear the usual dress uniform for Mass. Pre-school children should wear their burgundy t-shirt as they always do. (We will take pictures in the spring at which time the children will be able to dress out of uniform.)
