THANK YOU to all the families that sent in Clorox wipes containers this year to help Boy Scout Troop 1037 upgrade its luminary displays for Christmas Eve and Holy Thursday. Please know how much we appreciate your help. We now have a sufficient amount for the displays and they will be much more weather-proof than the paper bags we used to use.

PRINCIPAL’S CORNER

The sixth grade class did a phenomenal job of helping their first grade book buddies this year. Sixth grade students interviewed their book buddies at the beginning of the year and then authored, illustrated, read and then gave their books to their book buddies. The sixth and first grades worked together very well all year. Great job to both the first and sixth grade teachers and students!

The Fun Run is September 23. Please mark that date on your calendar for next school year. We could really use your help with this event. We have outstanding parents running the Fun Run this year. We are looking for someone to head this event up for the 2018 school year. Please contact Mrs. Nykerk if you can assist at jennykerk@yahoo.com.

Thank you to Mr. and Mrs. Chow! Mrs. Mueller’s room has truly been transformed from a science room to a science lab. The Chow family donated all of the materials in this two phase transformation. The new science lab looks amazing!

Excellent work to the boy scouts and their leaders as they camped outdoors this weekend. One of our grads Jacob Bruck is working on his Eagle Scout project here at St. Hugo. You might see Jacob videotaping dismissal as he is working on a strategy to make our dismissal even safer than it currently is. Great job to the St. Hugo scouts!

A reminder that Field Day is tomorrow. The weather is currently forecasted at cloudy and 65 degrees. I really appreciate all the parents that have volunteered! It is not too late to help. All St. Hugo families are welcomed to help in some capacity tomorrow. It should be a fun day and expect a special visitor!

HAVE A SAFE AND FUN SUMMER!
