Happy first week back!  I hope you and your family had a splendid Christmas break!  It has been a busy first week back.  We enjoyed celebrating Mass together this Wednesday.  Students from multiple grade levels participated in the Mass, a big thanks for Miss Steinkamp and Mrs. Cline for planning our first Mass after break.

A few things are coming up to note in your calendar:


SCRIP orders will begin again on January 9th.  Please be sure to get those orders in Monday morning.

kuwait-cold-weatherThe cold and snowy weather is finally here.  Please dress your children appropriately.  As long as the “feels like” temperature is above ZERO we will go outside.  Boots, hats, and gloves are necessary to stay comfortable.


Catholic Youth Camp is coming to St. Malachy on January 18th following Mass. The CYC director will discuss details with students and parents about camp and pricing and how to register.  If you are interested in sending your child to CYC we encourage you to attend and learn more about the camp. Camp is for students who are currently in grades 2-8.
