I am writing this letter while sitting on the Amtrak Train with our 5th and 7th grade students. We spent the day in Sacramento visiting the Capital and the California History Museum. I am happy to report that our students represented their school well and we did not lose any chaperones!
Don’t forget that on April 30th, we will celebrate Monsignor Moreton’s 50th anniversary in the priesthood. Monsignor Moreton’s family has asked that we all wear Hawaiian shirts and they are providing ice cream for all the students! The student council is also pitching in, providing a lei for each student and sponsoring an afternoon of games and fun! Students may wear jeans, shorts or uniform pants with their Hawaiian shirt. Please no Hawaiian dresses or grass skirts.
Everyone should have received next year’s registration packet via email today. You may also access registration on our school website and School Speak. Please note that registration is due by May 23rd. The cost of tuition went up 3.5% this year due to the increase in health benefits and salaries. This will be about an $11.00 a month more.
Have a blessed Easter and wonderful vacation! Go in peace and don’t run in the hall

St. Benedict Joseph Labre (d. 1783) He wore the rags of a beggar and shared his food with the poor. Filled with the love of God and neighbor, Benedict had special devotion to the Blessed Mother and to the Blessed Sacrament.
