CONGRATULATIONS TO Robert Silaghi!  Robert was last week’s TRACK winner.  Robert was nominated by Mrs. Slifka for being friendly and courteous in the classroom.  Keep up the good work, Robert!


MANY THANKS TO our Trunk or Treat Committee Chairs, Mrs. Suzanne Tosto and Mrs. Sarah Jankowski, and their team on a wonderful family event!  Much fun was had by all!  And thank you to everyone who came out to Trunk or Treat this past weekend. We had the best year yet with an estimate of 900 – 1,000 people in attendance. The weather could not have been more perfect as well as all the costumes and cars that went all-out for the perfect Halloween family celebration.  Thank you to our sponsors (see flyer) and the wonderful committee who put this together:  Lorry Schwegman, Arlene Curioca, Nicole Orow, Nazek Gappy, Tracey Jacob, Rebecca Rudnick, Melissa Williams, Michele Mojares, Stacy Madany, Elisa Palizzi, Yasmine Najor, Katie Milewicz, Chrisina Ayar, Janet Rivard, Lauren Oriani, Kelly Thalmann, Shavon Manni, Raquel Orow, Barb Bojan, Sonia Vittiglio, Karla Mekani, Amanda Alvelo-Malina, Heather Koziarz, Kristen Mikel.  A special thank you to the Jacob Family who donated all the hamburgers, hot dogs, chips and water as well as working the food station for the evening. All proceeds went directly to St. Hugo which contributed to this year’s tremendous success. Another thank you to the Koziarz Family who very generously donated back their 50/50 raffle winnings. A final thanks to all the Jr. High students and parents, especially Debbie Burg, Nikki New and Patsy Hogan who volunteered to assist the games, raffle, parking lot, set up and/or clean up!!  Please see the flyer of all the winners of the car decorating and costume contests. Congratulations to all the winners!


COMPUTER AND ELECTRONIC RECYCLING will take place Sunday, November 5 from 8:00am – 12:00pm, and Monday, November 6 from 3:00pm – 5:30pm.  Please drop off your computers, printers, and other electronic equipment for recycling in the boxes stationed inside the St. Hugo maintenance garage located between the Ladies of Charity and the carport, behind the church.  CRT monitors and TV’s are not accepted due to the mercury gas in them.  Wooden speakers are also not accepted.  Thanks for helping to make us a “green school”!


BEGINNING THURSDAY, OCTOBER 26 tutoring will be offered by Catholic high school students and our own 7th and 8th grade students.  Tutoring will cost a nominal fee of $10 per session and will be held every Thursday that school is in session from 3:30pm – 4:30pm in A1.  If your 7th or 8th grade student would like to help tutor or if your student would like to register to come to the tutoring sessions, please contact Mrs. Bartoli, ann.bartoli@sthugoschool.org.  Tutoring is open to grades 2-8.  We hope to see you!
