The 8th grade is hosting a pizza lunch tomorrow for those who preordered. Extended Care kids will check in FIRST before they get pizza. Students who are ordering pizza before they go home must have their parents supervise them in the cafeteria. Do not park in a yellow zone if you are escorting your child to pizza!

We are also looking for substitutes who have the required credentials to substitute in preschool from time to time. Candidates must be compliant with Department of Youth and Family Services (DCYF) Merit Background checks, CPR, First Aid, and have some initial training in Child Care Basics class.

Application deadline for both elementary and secondary schools NOTE: Submitting the application online is just the first step. All applicants must also provide supporting documentation, like tax forms and W-2’s. Applications can only be verified and processed once the necessary documentation is received by FACTS. It takes FACTS about 14 business days to process an application once the paperwork is received, so the sooner it’s submitted, the better. This is the deadline for both submitting the application and submitting documentation. Exceptions won’t be made.

Synod on Synodality
Initiated by Pope Francis, the Synod on Synodality is a process of listening and dialogue which began in 2021 with a worldwide consultation of the People of God. The Synod continues with gatherings of delegates in Rome in October 2023, including our own Archbishop Etienne, and is expected to conclude in 2024. What is a Synod? The word “synod” means “on the way together” and refers to a gathering of the Church for discernment or decision-making. Learn more about the upcoming Synod at Archdiocese of Seattle’s Synod website: //archseattle.org/synod All are invited to join Discerning Deacons’ October weekly Rosary for a Synodal Church online at https://bit.ly/synodrosary on Tuesdays in October at 9am.
