Religion
In religion we are learning how God gave us families and how they are all different.

Communication:
We are in need of some snacks if you are interested in donating.
I am attaching a letter about Catholic Schools week and a slip for a special guest for Mass.
Please return permission slip forms I will let you know if I do not receive

If students would like to leave their snow gear at school they can.  I ask that each student please bring an extra pair of shoes as we do not wear snow boots in the classroom.

Catholic Schools Week Activities
January 28th - February 2nd has been designated as “Catholic Schools Week” at St. Malachy School.  It is a time for students and faculty to show their pride in St. Malachy and have FUN doing so.  I wanted to inform you of the activities that have been planned throughout the school week.  They are as follows:
Sunday-January 28th:
This is the opening of Catholic Schools Week with a Eucharist Celebration at 9:00 a.m. at Holy Spirit Church.  A brunch provided by the PTO in the Parish Hall will follow Mass.

Monday-January 29th:
This is “PJ or sweats Day” Students can show their spirit for St. Malachy by wearing school appropriate pajamas or sweats.  STUDENTS ARE TO BRING A SACK LUNCH TO SCHOOL.  They will be eating with their Advent Angels.  Milk will be provided, so you do not need to send a drink. 

Tuesday-January 30th:

Wednesday-January 31st:

Thursday-February 1st:
This is “Blue and Gold Day.”  Students can show their spirit for St. Malachy by wearing the St. Malachy colors of blue and/or gold.  STUDENTS ARE TO BRING A SACK LUNCH TO SCHOOL.  The students will be taking a field trip to Des Moines to go skating.  We will leave at 8:30 am and return by 2:30 pm.  

Friday-February 2nd:

This is “Grandparent or Special Guest Day/Dress up Day.”  Students are encouraged to wear mass appropriate attire.  Mass will begin at 1:30 at Holy Spirit Church.  Please have your child’s grandparent/special guest meet your child at the church.  Students will be bused to the church by 1:15.  After Mass there will be a reception in the church hall.  Please return the yellow note that was sent home, so I know who will have grandparent/special person.  This will help me know who to look for at the church.
