News for the Week: Multicultural Fair, Middle School Youth Group, CYO Track

Updated: May 3

 

April 25, 2024

 

 

Dear St. George Families,

 

In Faith Families, the students had a lesson on protecting our earth.  We discussed the damage and health risks pesticides have  on plants, water, air and us. The children looked at other ways to prevent pesky garden bugs by using alternatives to pesticides like planting marigolds around gardens. Each child planted his/her own marigold seeds to grow and use as a bug repellant in home gardens. We are excited to see pictures of thriving marigolds!

 

Thank you to the 37 pizza eating families who took part in the Tutta Bella fundraiser for St. George. We raised $654.03 for our school!  Look for our next EasyAsPieSaintGeorge pizza week next year.

 

Our annual Day of Service is happening this Saturday, April 27th!  Tomorrow is the last day we are collecting diapers, wipes, new and GENTLY used baby and children’s clothing for the PREPARES ministry at St. Edward.

There has been some energy building around forming an adult softball team this summer. In addition to St. George families, anyone associated with the

Missing Sweater and Sweatshirts?  There are many missing uniform pieces and our Lost and Found is full of nameless items including uniform pieces, coats, water bottles and lunch containers. The next time you are doing laundry, please check for names on the labels in case your child brought the wrong one home! Sometimes the kids don’t look and grab the wrong one!
