Thank you to the parents and parishioners who attended the Washington D.C. Kids sponsored dance on Saturday. Also thank you to Sam VanDyke for organizing this event and to Maureen and Phil VanDyke and the Lake Oswego Millennium Dance Band for providing the music. The music, dancing, and refreshments were enjoyed by all.
We are starting our Jog-a-thon fundraiser for this year. Please help Visitation Catholic School meet our goal of raising $10,000 through this fundraising activity. In past years, Visitation used to earn around $10,000, and it is an amount that both our neighboring schools accomplish each year. I challenge each student to fill out ten jog-a-thon forms to be mailed by April 15th. The Jog-a-thon is very easy for families to do with no pressure on those we are asking to support our students. The forms are simply mailed out to those we know, relatives, dentists, neighbors, etc., and then that person has the choice to sponsor the student or not. Students are also welcome to personally ask people if they will sponsor them. Thank you for helping Visitation to meet this goal.
Last Friday, the seventh and eighth graders competed in the NWSE science fair. This competition It is a great opportunity for our students to share their science fair experiments with others and to practice their presentation skills. Congratulations go Taylor LaBonte and Alex Funk for receiving second place in the category of Medicine and Health for their experiment “Disinfect to Protect”, and congratulations to Kendra Bailey and Cally Ann Kennedy for receiving honorable mention in the category of Chemistry for their experiment “Go Bananas”!
All parents are invited to attend Visitation Catholic School’s end of second trimester award ceremony. This will be held on Monday, April 11th at 2:30 P.M. in the gym. We hope you can join us.
May God bless you,
Carol Funk, Principal
