I have some exciting news to share! First, our on-line store is ready!  The web site address is: http://b1selfshops.com/dfcsp_our_lady_of_victory_school/

There are many wonderful items for sale and many of them may be worn to school.  There are items for infants, children, adults and alumni!  To view these items first enter the web address. When the page appears click on either the women’s, men’s, kid’s or accessories tab and you will be able to view the many products.

Not everything for sale at the on-line store will be appropriate for school; however the spirit wear may be worn on any Wednesday.  Spirit wear includes sweatshirts, tee shirts, polo shirts, scarves, hats and beanies.  The scarves, hats and beanies may be worn at any time.  Also, in the adult sections you will find items for parents and alumni.  Remember 20% of all the sales will go directly to the school!

The Christmas Boutique was a huge success.  The student’s council did a wonderful job of setting up, selling and wrapping of the gifts.  Each year the student council raises money and gives it to a charity.  This year the student council will give its money to the Right to Life organization and help the school pay for the on line science program called Brain Pop.  Thank you for supporting their efforts!

Have a blessed Christmas and a Happy New Year!  Go in peace and don’t run in the halls.
