--Norwalk Catholic School -Friday Flyer--

December 14, 2018


Dear NCS Parents,


   I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for your generosity and support of our school. In three days, the elementary has raised over $300 for the Bubble Bowl on 12/21/18. The money from ticket sales will go to the Soaring Campaign to build our endowment fund. I am also very thankful of your generosity in donating so many items to our United Fund Basket Basics program. The students and I will put together baskets next week before Christmas break.

   The first and second grade classes are looking forward to their Christmas program on Monday, December 17th. The show for first grade parents is at 6:30pm and the show for second grade parents is at 7:15pm, in the auditorium. I am looking forward to seeing the student’s hard work pay off on stage!

   On Tuesday, December 18th the elementary students will enjoy Reindeer Games! These are Christmas theme stations that will be set up in the Monroe Street Gym, to reward the students for a hard-working and well done second quarter! The kindergarteners will be coming over to participate, as well as high school students coming to the gym to help throughout the day at the stations. It will be another great opportunity, similar to the Faith Walk in October, for our students to come together as a family for comradery and fun.

                                           God bless and Merry Christmas! Mrs. Englert
