Happy New Year! I hope that you were able to enjoy a wonderful holiday break with your family. Now that we are back in school and a new year has begun, my wish is that our Lord will bless us all with health, happiness and grace.
The month of December was especially busy here at SSKCA. At our First Friday Mass, the newest members of the Sodality of the Blessed Mother were installed during a lovely ceremony. The first Parent/Teacher Conference of the year was held to distribute and discuss student report cards as well as standardized and state test scores. Our student stars did an amazing job so that our annual Christmas Show was a huge hit! I would like to thank all of our guests that night who refrained from loud talking during the performance so that the show could truly be enjoyed by all present.
Our fundraising results included:
- Cupcake Sale $272.00
- Polar Express movie night $306.00
- Breakfast with Santa $2,520.00
- Christmas Show $3,305.00
A grateful thank you to the parents who helped with the preparations for our most important and most profitable fundraiser of the year, the New Year’s Eve dinner dance. A special Thank You! to the following parents who sacrificed spending the night with their family in order to volunteer all evening and night at the dinner dance: Mr. and Mrs. Niewinski, Mr. and Mrs. Czartoryjski, Mr. and Mrs. Czyz, and Mr. Chmarzewski. We truly appreciate your sacrifice and dedication! All other necessary assistance at the event that night had to be hired, which will result in a decrease in our potential profit. A special Thank You! as well to Mrs. Grazyna Dabek, who, although her son has already graduated from our school, still comes to decorate the auditorium for these events!

A special schedule of events here at SSKCA during Catholic Schools Week will be sent home later in the month.
May this gift of a new year be an opportunity for us to embrace our faith more fully so that the light of Christ might shine through each of us every day.
