PISTONS NIGHT FUNDRAISER!  On Thursday students attended an all-school assembly presented by a crew from the Detroit Pistons.  Our students listened to wonderful messages about healthy eating and being kind to one another, watched the antics of the Pistons mascot, Hooper, and they enjoyed a student vs teacher shootout.  Folders with ticket sale information to the November 19 game against the Boston Celtics were sent home with each student.   $5 from the sale of each ticket sold will be donated back to St. Hugo.  All orders are due to the office by October 8.  Tickets are unlimited so gather all of your Pistons friends to enjoy a basketball game and support our school!  Thank you to Andrea Mychalowych for organizing the assembly and this fundraiser!

8th GRADE STUDENT COUNCIL Great job to all of the students that ran for Student Council.  Congrats to the new President-Izabel Kruse, Vice President-Peter Burg, Secretary-Elijah Venos and Treasurer-Angeli Fandino.  Thank you to Mrs. Kurn for all her efforts in running a well-organized election.

PISTONS VISIT  Members of the Pistons organization came to visit on Thursday.  They had an excellent message for our students: eat healthy and treat one another well.  I hope that I see students eating well in the cafeteria.  I also hope students remember the story the Pistons discussed.   The story illustrated how important it is to help one another and never put down another student.  Remember that “as followers of Jesus, it must be different with us.”  We need to truly live that in the way we treat each other and stand up to any student that we see is not treated well.

FUN RUN SUCCESS  Thank you to all of the parents that donated both items and money to Christ Child House.  The items and money will help many neglected boys and girls.  The items were literally overflowing the bins we had set up, so thank you for your generosity!
