Congratulations to two of our students who are winners in the Oregon Catholic Schools Art Contest for Easter Season 2013: “He Has Risen!” Athena has won first place ($50 prize) and Madalyn has won second place ($30 prize) in the 4th through 8th grade category. The winning entries can be viewed on the website tchforegon.org under the News tab and then clicking Oregon.
Thank you for your help and support of the Jog-A-Thon. This year, Parents’ Club was able to double the amount raised from last year’s Jog-A-Thon! The 2013 Jog-A-Thon raised over $13,000 with 100% student participation! We have much to be thankful for including the generosity and support of our parents, parishioners, students and friends. Friday afternoon, May 31st at 2:40 pm we will be having our Jog-A-Thon Awards Assembly. Prizes are being given —for the top ten money earners, top boy and girl laps in each class, for those who received a sponsor, and more. All monies collected will need to be turned in by Friday, May 24th to count towards prizes.
We are continuing with our registration process for the 2013/2014 school year. Last week, information about tuition assistance grantswas mailed to all families applying through FACTS. We ask that the registration contract and fees be turned in by May 31st so that accurate budget decisions can be made.
Next week, we will be beginning our final service project for the year in support of Heifer Project International. Each grade will be choosing an animal that they would like to raise funds to purchase and donate to a family in poverty. The animal will help the family to have a sustainable income, and the money gained is often used to help children of the family attend school.
Please continue to remember the eighth graders in your prayers this week as they participate in their retreat activities. We pray that this will be a faith filled time of reflection and growth for them.
I wish you a safe and blessed Memorial Day weekend.
Carol Funk, Principal
