SummerFest Sign Ups

Dear School Families,

Summerfest is rapidly approaching. It is May 31st, June 1st & 2nd.  Four-4 hour shifts are required by each school family.  Below is the information on how to sign up for your shifts online.  Please sign up by Saturday, April 28th. After that date online sign ups will be unavailable during the weekends due to parishioner sign ups and the number of shift choices will be greatly reduced.

Thank you for your prompt response!  It makes our job much easier when all families sign up ASAP.

Please understand even if you have confirmed with a booth chair your intent to work a particular booth, if they have not already signed you up-you still need to signup for those shifts online. Double check with the booth chair if you are not sure. It is necessary for accurate record keeping and assuring the request. 

As always, please feel free to email or call with questions.  Thank you to all.

ALL WEEK- Celebrate Earth Week…

Earth Day is a very important day for 
Julia Jones, our Green Team Leader and Representative for Student Council Ecology,.  We would like to support this week and help out our environment.  Throughout the week, the students will be educated about the importance of “Going Green” and how we can nurture our environment that God has created.  On Friday, April 26th we are challenging our students to pack a “Waste Free snack” which includes the least amount of waste possible.  All students participating will receive an Earth Day themed prize. 
To show our appreciation of our Green Team leader, “Julia Jones” bracelets will be sold throughout the week.  These may be worn by any student any day.  The bracelet states “Jules Rules” and “All things are possible with God”  The bracelets are $2.00 or any other donation that will go to the family.  Thank you for all your support and LETS GO GREEN!!
