Notes from the Principal's Desk: exam schedule, Purple Friday, upcoming events, and more

The students and faculty have been preparing for exams this week. By this point in time, each teacher in grades 3-8 should have distributed an exam review sheet. We like to send out the review early so students can begin to plan a study schedule.  The exam schedule is as follows:
Tuesday, Jan. 21st: Math & Religion (Except for 3rd grade)
Wednesday, Jan. 22nd: ELA & Modern Language
Thursday, Jan. 23rd: Science & Social Studies (3rd grade Math exam)
Tomorrow is a Purple Friday Dress Down Day in support of the Ravens! It is also ahalf-day with dismissal at 11:50 AM. Faculty and staff will be in professional development in the afternoon.
Don’t forget that this Sunday, first grade will have their Class Mass during the 9:30 AM Liturgy. We hope to see everyone there!
We have lots of great events happening in the next few weeks. Below is a short list of some of the events:
Chick-Fil-A lunch - Monday, January 13th
