Letter from the Principal

From Monica Wingard  •  Posted on April 6, 2014

Dear St. George Parishioners,

Thanks to all of you who joined us at our annual auction dinner and dance. We had a super fun time while supporting the students of St. George. $15,500, alone, was raised for our Georgian Fund that supports tuition assistance! That will go a long way in helping parents who value a Catholic education.

On Friday, April 11th the staff and students are having a special SOUP LUNCH in REFLECTION. The students will bring a special ingredient for our soup and $3.00 to buy lunch. All proceeds will be donated the Catholic Relief Services' (CRS) Rice Bowl program. We will hear a gospel reading and then eat in quiet reflection thinking about all the blessings in our lives, and how we can work to help those who are struggling in our world. Each Friday during Lent, the 4th graders have been watching Fr. Leo from CRS on line as he cooks up a meal from a country of focus where CRS is active. After Father's cooking lesson, the kids cook the same meal. They have made delicious and simple, meatless meals from Guatemala, Malawi and the Philippines. No one misses Friday lunches in 4th grade! Thanks to Mrs. Vangaver who has become quite the shopper for some unique ingredients that may not be found in our own kitchens.

The school staff and parents will be hosting the Friday Lenten Soup Supper on Friday April 11th at 6:00PM in the St. Francis room. We always welcome volunteers from our parent community to help us strengthen the relationship between the school and parish. Diners are welcome to attend confession and Stations of the Cross, too.

The annual MULTICULTURAL FAIR is Saturday, April 12th at 5:00PM-8:00PM in the school hall. Here is your chance to sample delicious foods from the diverse cultures within our school, and experience their music and dance. It's a night out on the "world" in "town"!

All parishioners on are invited to Stations of the Cross lead by the 5th grade on Good Friday at 8:30 in the church. School will be closed for Easter Vacation April 21-25th.

You are always in my prayers, my friends!

Sincerely,
Monica Win
