Hello Mt. Carmel families,
What a wonderful weekend to welcome spring! I hope everyone took advantage of the beautiful weather and spent some time outdoors. As we count the days until Easter vacation, here are the items of merit:
- As a Lenten service project, our National Junior Honor Society chapter is conducting a food drive to help restock the shelves of the St. Vincent dePaul Food Bank. Please send in non-perishable food items through Thursday, March 25.
- Our annual Jump Rope / Hoops for Heart event is scheduled for March 25 and 26, during gym classes. Please be as generous as your means allow as we support the work of the American Heart Association.
- The third marking period closes next week on March 31. Please remind your students to submit all assignments in a timely fashion.
- The Diocesan Schools’ Office recently released the protocols for spring sports. Based on those protocols (only practices grouped by established grade level cohorts/pods, no competitions between schools, no participation of religious education students) the decision has been made to forego our track season this year. While this is disappointing, the health of our athletes has to remain our primary concern.
Enjoy the rest of the weekend and the extra hours of daylight!
