News of the Week

February 1, 2024


Dear St. George Families,


Thank you to all the families who participated in the Catholic Schools Week Masses at St. Peter and St. George. Thanks to the 3rd and 7th grade room moms who organized the coffee and doughnuts and thanks to the kindergarten mom who shared an Ethiopian coffee service with us too! This Sunday I am at St. Paul’s 8:30 and St. Edward’s 10:30 and 1:00 Masses. I hope to see all those parishioners dressed in their St. George swag!


We have had a super fun Catholic Schools Week. It is so cute to see the creativity of the students in their outfits, and the joy they expressed in their pajamas! Our Family luncheon was packed with parents eating lunch with their kids and their kids’ friends.  It is wonderful for parents to come be a part of our daily life at school once in a while and connect with other parents.


Service Hour opportunities
  1. Friday Feb. 23rd at 6:00 PM Stations of the Cross/ Lenten Soup Supper hosted by the school at St. George Church.

  • Can’t wait to see you all there.


Looking Ahead
  • Valentines ‘Day Celebration at school will be on Feb 13th this year! At St. George Valentines’ Day is a celebration of friendships and community. We ask student to make their own Valentines for each classmate and refrain from supporting Hallmark or Disney with store bought valentines with all that candy.  That takes away the sentiment of friendship and puts the focuses on the candy and treats. Homemade cards can be simple and sweet. By doing this we ensure equity with our families, avoid allergy situations and avoid the negative impacts of too much sugar. 

  • Ash Wednesday and the beginning of Lent February 14th is. We invite everyone to Mass at 8:30.

  • Remember – Noon dismissal tomorrow, Friday, February 2nd.


I look forward to seeing all our parents next week. You are who make St. George the warm welcoming community to all.


Sincerely,

Monica Wingard
