Optional Dress Down Day on Tuesday, December 11

There will be an optional Dress Down Day ($1.00 donation or more) on Tuesday, December 11 to raise money to send supplies to the Boscoe Orphanage in Guyana, South America.

Ms. Anita Petersen’s daughter, Meghan Petersen is in Guyana, South America serving with the Mercy Volunteer Corp for a year.  The 3rd grade did a service project to help the St. John’s Boscoe Orphanage where Meghan helps with the boys who are staying there. The ages are from 4 years old to 21. Supplies have been collected by 3rd grade students and now we need assistance with shipping the boxes to Guyana.  Thank you for your help and support for this 3rd grade project.

Hat and glove collection for Siena Francis House

The SPSL 6th grade boys basketball team, led by two SPSL alumni, will be collecting brand new men’s hats and gloves to give to residents of the Siena Francis House.  The boys will have 3 boxes throughout the school to collect the donations – one in the 6th grade hallway, one near the school office, and one near the Kindergarten hallway.  The boxes will be in those locations until Wednesday, December 12, at which point the boys will collect all of the donated items.  The boys will bring the items with them to St. James Parish on Sunday, December 16 to stuff Santa Socks that will be brought to kids and adults at the Siena Francis House.  Thank you for your generosity!

Christmas Gift Fund

Many years ago, parent volunteers came together and coordinated a Christmas gift fund for the teachers and staff members of SPSL.  The fund was created as a way for students and parents to show their appreciation for the faculty and staff at Christmas.  Contributions are voluntary and each family may decide whether to participate.  Donations will be divided among all of the teachers and staff members.

A letter should have come home with your youngest or only child.  If you did not receive that letter, you may send cash or a check in a sealed envelope marked “Christmas Gift Fund” to the school.  Please make checks payable to St. Pius X / St. Leo School and designate in the memo Christmas Gift Fund.  Contributions must be received by Friday, December 14.  Thank you for considering a gift for your child’s teachers.
