Our 2nd graders will be doing a collection of items for babies and toddlers during Lent for the F.I.S.H. Food Pantry.

Anything you can give will be greatly appreciated! Please bring the item(s) to school on or before April 11th. Thank you!

GRASP Summer Program - (Flyer attached)
Flyers were sent home with students last week for the GRASP program which helps students maintain reading and math skills while they are on their summer vacation. The program should take approximately one hour a week to complete each lesson. New this year is the option for students in 4th - 8th grade to do the program online. K-3 will only have the workbook option.
If you are interested in signing your child up for the program please complete the attached flyer and return it to school by Wednesday, April 12th.
Save money on your tuition bill!
Looking to save money on your next tuition bill and raise money for the school? Many school families already participate in our TRIP program (Tuition Reduction Incentive Program) and earn back monthly rebates towards their tuition. Families order gift cards through the Great Lakes Scrip Program and receive back a rebate percentage on each card which is then applied towards tuition. We would love to add new families to this program! 
Create your own online TRIP account by signing up at https://www.shopwithscrip.com/ and place an order for next week to start earning money towards your tuition. The code to create an account is 2CL3966D181. Due to school being closed on Monday, April 17th, our next TRIP order will be placed on Monday April 24th. Please have your TRIP order payment in the school office by 9:00 AM on Monday, April 24th. You can also reload current scrip cards and shop for ScripNow cards online, anytime. 
Spring Shoe Drive
Hello School Families! Please join our high school youth in collecting gently used, worn, and new shoes for our Shoe Drive this spring! There is a box in the school lobby to collect the shoes. The collection will run through June 14th. Thank you for your support!
Peace and Blessings!
