St. Jude Math-a-thon

again participated in the St. Jude Math-a-thon. They raised a
total of $1432.75.
The Eagles A.C. of St. Ignatius wanted to thank the 8th graders who worked the chicken dinners for them this year. As a special "Thank You", the Eagles have given each of the 8th graders going to Chicago some extra money to spend on their trip. Thank you, thank you.
On Thursday, 5/1/03, we will have the final running of the TMA Derby. The races will begin around 12:30. Each class will have a race as well as Millionaires Row provided by Gr. 6 and musical entertainment from students, Mr. Gravatte, and others.
Class Switching Day
On Monday, 5/5/03, we are having special morning classes. Each grade will visit every other classroom. The older ones can reminisce, the younger ones just see what else is going on.
Friday, May 23rd, is the last day lunch will be served. On Tuesday, May 27th, all students will need to bring a lunch and a drink for that day.
Four members of TMA have
been published! A book containing a collection of stories about faith,
family, and devotion was written by members of the Archdiocese.
Included in the book Proof of Your Love, are articles by our
librarian Mrs. Herdt, and three of our 7th graders, Hollyn Stratton,
Amanda McKune and Justin LeMon. Great job! Copies are
available at the rectory.
We have had an unusual amount of lunch charges these past few weeks. PLEASE make sure your child does not leave home without lunch tickets/milk money. Thanks.
Lost and Found
We have many items in our lost and found box in the main office. These items include shoes, shirts, jackets, etc. Please check to see if your child(ren) is/are missing any clothing items. If so, check our lost and found.
