Wow, what a week for winter weather!  I haven’t seen anything like this in years. These days off are always tough to call and most important thing is to keep our kids safe.  If you did not receive email or texts from us this week please contact Sarah Lane  slane@crestonstmalachy.org on Monday and she will check your account and get you set-up!

Don’t worry kids we are still going to dissect!  Mrs. Simmons and Mr. Kissell have rescheduled the Dissection Day for Monday, February 26th.  Parents if you were planning to help and still can on Monday we would love to have you!  If you cannot please email Mr. Kissell and let him know.  rkissell@crestonstmalachy.org.

Parents, we need your help!  Students in grades K-8 make baskets for the auction.  This year they are combining the baskets to make them bigger and better.  We cannot make these baskets without your support!  Please send in an item or cash donation to help make these baskets great!  Remember all money raised goes straight into St. Malachy’s day-to-day budget.  Also, please consider attending!  It is a fun night and a great way to get to know St. Malachy families and their biggest supporters.
