Second Quarter Conferences – Optional Parent-Student-Teacher Conferences are held in February. Conference Request Forms are included in today’s Family Envelope.

“Soup”er Bowl/ Tree House Collections Continue – Due to the short week last week, please note that the collection for “The Tree House” and the “Soup”er Bowl collection will continue through the end of this week. Students should bring in socks, new books, and notebooks for children affected by abuse and cans of soup for our Food Pantry. Thank you for your help with this very important service project.
Second Quarter Music Grades – Second Quarter Music Grades have been added to the Report Card and are now available to check on Option C. Please remember to choose “2nd Quarter” in the pull-down menu.
Children’s Offertory Envelopes – Child offertory envelopes will be available to the students to reflect and offer something back to God. When children learn the value of being good and faithful stewards of God’s gifts, they carry those values through to their daily living and make generous gifts of their time, talent and treasure. Maybe your child wants to say thank you for something special that has gone on in their life. It could be a simple note saying “I was kind to my little brother or sister”, “I played a game with my family” or even “I helped mom with the dishes”. If your child would like to offer money, that is great too. This is just an opportunity for them to give back in whatever way they are comfortable with. The envelopes will be available at the back of the church.
Attention Parents of Eighth Graders – To help our parents and students be more prepared for Registration Night on February 18th, DDHS would like to host a Registration Informational Session for our 8th grade students and parents at St. Andrew School. This presentation is for students and for any parent that wishes to attend. This presentation will be Wednesday, on February 12th at 8:30 AM in Mrs. Amici’s Room. Please mark your calendars for this very important event.
Dishing with the Disciples presents The Gospel Unplugged – Dishing with the Disciples will happen on Thursday, February 20th. We meet in St. Andrew’s, Delavan cafeteria from 6:30 – 8:00 PM. This month we will be watching a presentation given by Chris Stefanick titled The Gospel Unplugged: Uncovering the Heart of Christianity. Chris is a well known youth minister and speaker. His talk is directed to teens AND the young at heart. Grandparents, parents, high school students, and young at heart searchers will find this evening an opportunity to give your faith a boost, and re-charge your sense of wonder and awe of our Lord. This evening is for YOU!
This is an opportunity for Adult Christian Formation AND an avenue to take advantage of being together as a FUN faith community. Please consider joining us and bring a friend (evangelization). We ask that if you feel in the mood to bring a snack to feed 4 people, but it is not a requirement. Take the plunge and experience “Dishing with the Disciples” this month.
