The Pre-K Valentine exchange/Party will be Thursday, Feb. 13th at 10:00 a.m. Even if it isn’t
your child’s regular day, I hope they can join us. I will have a snack sign-up sheet posted outside
the classroom and have attached a class list so your child can provide one for each of their classmates.
This is an excellent opportunity for your child to practice writing their name! If they only
filled out a few each day prior to the party it might feel like practicing and not a task. Another
option is, The 5th & 6th grade will be selling candygrams for .25/ea in our room on Thurs. Feb. 6
at 8 a.m. This helps fund their outdoor school. Just have your child bring money that day. We
will also have a craft and some games. Parents and younger siblings are welcome to join us. 
Please see me if you have any questions or concerns, or contact me at mphillips@saintpaulparochial.org or at the school 503 633-4622

HAPPY 2020! I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas Break with family and friends. I will have a Scholastic book order to submit on 1/24. If you have one to add, check out the attached order forms and let me know prior to that date.
Catholic Schools Week will be here before you know it. (1/27-1/30) It “focuses on the value Catholic education provides to young people and its contributions to our church,our communities and our nation with Masses, open houses and other activities for students, families, parishioners and community members” (source; NCEA website).
It is one of my favorite things to celebrate at SPPS each year and is a great lead-up to our Auction Dinner/Dance. I look forward to celebrating it with everyone.
