Mission Offering: The 2nd semester mission offering will go to support the Mason Paolasini family.  Mission offering last week was $23.00.  Total for the semester is $216.30.
Hot Lunch Menu:  April Hot Lunch menus are coming home with students today.  Please fill out the Entrée calendar and return it with payment by Wednesday, March 27th.  Please be prompt in returning your payment on time! 
Spring Break:  There is no school at St. Paul’s Monday, March 18-22 for spring break.  Classes will resume on Monday, March 25, at 8:30am. The week of March 25-29 is North Fond du Lac’s spring break so there’ll be no hot lunch served at St. Paul’s.  There will be bus service. 
3rd Quarter:  Tomorrow marks the final day of our third quarter.  After six months of hard work, your child has earned a week off!  I pray that the week away from school will give all of our students a chance to get better from their colds and to reenergize their batteries so that we can hit the ground running as we return on Monday, March 25, to begin the 4th quarter!  Report cards should be sent home with your child on Tuesday, the 26th.
Singing Schedule:  There’s a slight change to make on the singing schedule.  Grades 3-6 will sing in the 3:30pm Lenten service on April 3 and grades K-2 (not K-4 as on the original schedule) will sing on Sunday, April 7th, in the 10:15am service.
Food for Thought Program:  During Lent we’ll gather nutritious food for the Fond du Lac area Food for Thought program that helps feed up to 600 disadvantaged children weekly.  Individual servings are needed, and no glass containers, please.  This is a simple yet meaningful way to show our Christian love and concern for neighbors in our community. There are marked bins in the school entry way for your donations.
Basketball Jerseys:  Please return your basketball jerseys to Mr. Lehman as soon as possible.  Thank you! 
Kids Heart Challenge:  All non-online donations to the American Heart Association are due to Mr. Lehman this Friday, March 15th.  Please bring them to his room that morning.  Thank you to all who have donated this year.  We have raised over $700 to aid the American Heart Association in all that they do.  
This Friday afternoon is also our Kids Heart Challenge Activity Day.  Our older and younger aged students will be mixed together for an hour of fun and activity. All with the mindset of the importance of being active.  
Mason Strong:  March is brain injury awareness month.  In light of this, Mason's aunt would like to put together a photo book for him.  She is asking that everyone wear purple March 15th and class photos will be taken in each classroom to include in the book.   Mason will enjoy looking thru the picture book of his friends dressed in his favorite color!  – Amber Miller 
Milk Moola Ending: Kwik Trip is discontinuing their Milk Moola rebate program. If you have any milk caps or tear strips, please turn them in! We will be sending them in soon! 
School Closings and Delays:  When we have a winter storm, school delays and closings will be announced on KFIZ 1450am, WTCX 96.1 and WFDL 97.7fm.  As a rule, if North Fond du Lac schools are canceled or delayed, St. Paul’s will be, too.  St. Paul’s may not be mentioned separately by name with school closings, it may be announced as North Fond du Lac schools, both public and private.  If you signed up for the Weather Alert system, you will also be notified of closings and delays in the way you requested.  North Fond du Lac has switched over to a different system so if you’re not notified after the first delay or cancellation, please contact the office.  When there’s a 2 hour delay there’s no Preschool or Before School Care.
