Catholic Schools Week Liturgy
The Fontbonne Academy Community will celebrate Catholic Schools Week this week. On Wednesday, January 30, we will gather to worship together in recognition of how we, as a Catholic School continue to "Raise the Standards." Our liturgy will begin at 8:30 a.m. and families are welcome to join us.
Chapstick Drive for Pine Street Inn
As part of our celebration of Catholic Schools Week we continue our Fontbonne tradition of reaching out to the dear neighbor by participating in a chapstick drive for the clients of the Pine Street Inn. Beginning on Monday, January 22, we are asking everyone to bring in three chapsticks and to place them into the designated basket in your homeroom. The collection ends on Friday, January 27, and the homeroom with the most chapsticks overall will win a prize. Thank you to Kathleen Ryan '15 for organizing this collection.
Optional Retreats for Juniors and Seniors
Juniors and Seniors who are interested in participating in the GIFT retreat (March 13 day-long retreat) or the Discover Retreat (April 8-9 overnight retreat) should make sure to complete the applications available in the Office of Mission and Ministry as soon as possible. More information can be found in the email sent by Ms. Denning last week.
