Last week, Mrs. Mummert sent home a broshure listing all of the events for Catholic Schools Week. While our preschool classes try to participate in as many school wide activities as we can, there are a few activities we will not be able to join. Some activities will also be dependent on our class times. Below, I have listed the activities in which we are planning to participate. These activities are subject to change. Never fear, we will have plenty of Catholic Schools Week fun in preschool and I will post pictures very soon!
