Good afternoon,

Next week is Spirit Week at Saint Bernadette School, but since our students, families, and teachers are always overflowing in that area, we kicked it off early by launching the Fun Run this week, and will be hosting Powder Puff tonight!  I encourage everyone to come out and cheer our eighth grade Class of 2022 girls and our seventh grade Class of 2023 girls in this flag football classic.  The snack shack will be open for dinner and Movie Night follows so bring up some lawn chairs and snacks for later.

Spirit Week will feature Tag Days and activities to celebrate what’s been accomplished in the 2021-2022 school year.  You’ll find more information below and in the attachments.  I am especially grateful for the commitment and sacrifices of all our teachers in making this year so successful and also am thankful for the support of our families.  We have a great week ahead of us!

Our spring concert returned this week and beautiful music resounded thanks to our singers under the choir direction of Mrs. Baker and our instrumentalists under the band direction of Ms. Ealy.  We look forward to showcasing the musical talents of more students next year. (That’s a hint!)

Before signing off, let me remind you that we will again offer a summer math program at Saint Bernadette School.  Please see the attached flyer to register.  If you’re headed up to the field for Powder Puff, I’ve added our St. Sebastian prayer below as he’s the patron saint of athletes.  Enjoy the game, the movie, and the entire weekend.  Stand fast in the faith!
