We have four full days of school this week. On Wednesday we will have a Free Dress day (donation of $1), with proceeds going to support of the St. Vincent de Paul Society. On Friday afternoon at 12:30 we will be attending the School Spelling Bee. Parents are welcome to join us. Next week, on Wednesday the 24th, we take our first field trip! We will be going to the Albinger Archaelogical Museum in Ventura. Permission forms are going home today in the homework folder; please sign both forms and send in $20, either cash or a check made out to Sacred Heart School. Finally, during Catholic Schools Week we will be holding another Food Drive in support of the Sacred Heart Church Food Pantry. We encourage you to stock up on non-perishable items to donate, as well as donations of small toys (fidget spinners, yo-yos, etc) to add to our food donations. Bags for the food drive will be distributed next week.
