Dear Queen of Peace Families,
As a school, we are helping a local family that has fallen on hard times through no fault of their own, and have been chosen to be the recipients of The Best Christmas Ever. Queen of Peace School has signed up to buy the family new winter coats. If you are able to help donate to this cause, you can either leave money in the classroom, or the school office in the donation bucket. $1 or $100, any amount will help!
All donations need to be brought in by Monday December 18th.
Thank you for helping this family in need!
Please check out the current issue of the National Catholic Education Association (NCEA) Parent News which is attached. It contains helpful information about the seasons of our faith throughout the year.
We had a VERY successful Pizza Sale. More pizzas were sold than any previous sale!
The figures are:
This year, we had the highest amount of pizzas sold in Queen of Peace recent history, with a total of 944 pizzas. That gave us a profit of $3,568.00. We would like to thank all those who participated from the school and parish for their support of our school.
Mardi Gras is coming on Saturday Feb 10th – SAVE the DATE!
Congratulations to the top three spelling contest winners from each classroom in Grades 3-4-5-6! They will be competing in the School-wide Spelling Bee, which will take place after Mass on Friday January 12th.
Grade level winners’ names (in no particular order):
Third Grade – Cate, Cruz, Rownen
Fourth Grade – Ethan, Adam, Angelo
Fifth Grade – Niko, Clare, Ahnna
Sixth Grade – Macy, Ryan, Grace
Spelling is fun!
We will have study materials for these students printed out, prior to Christmas break. A copy of the “Study List” for school bees and a copy of the 2018 “Spell It!” booklet are each attached in PDF format, if anyone would like to share them with their child(ren).
For families whose child(ren) will participate in Destination Imagination:
