Mr. O’s Weekly News

March 10, 2022

Hello Falcons!

No School tomorrow/Friday due to a teacher professional development day. 

Morning Drop-Off: please keep your students in your car until 7:30am when the school doors open.  As Covid declined and the weather improved, more and more students started gathering in front of the school in the morning.  We do not provide supervision until 7:30am, so I ask that students not be on campus until then.  Please and thank you!

School Lenten Giving Project

  • “Create in me a clean heart, O God, and put a new and right spirit within me.” – Psalm 51:10
  • This year’s Lenten Project is a simple and creative way for St. Christopher students to develop “a clean heart…and…a new and right spirit” while working on a “clean” project.
  • Parishioners Dan and Lea Craine are laundromat owners and assured us their guests will be moved and brightened by our project.
  • We will make “Clean Kits” and the Craines will distribute them in their laundromats.
  • Students should make their kits at home and then bring the completed kits to school.
  • Please make as many or as few kits as you like.
  • The kits should be made in ziploc baggies and should contain:
    • Quarters
    • Soap Pods
    • Dryer Sheets
    • A sweet treat to eat while waiting on laundry
    • A homemade blessing card (notes of encouragement and joyful thoughts or pictures drawn and colored)
  • Students can drop off their kits in the laundry basket located in the school lobby.
  • The deadline is April 14th. 

St. Christopher, pray for us!

God Bless & Go Falcons!

St. Christopher School Principal
