Friday is our annual Veteran’s day mass and assembly. The students are working hard to prepare for this special day. My father was a proud WWII veteran. The service these men and women have given and many still continue to give to our country in ways that is beyond measure. I am looking forward to this event and seeing all of you.

Thank you to all of you who attended parent-teacher conferences last week. We were happy to see you! We will be evaluating how conferences went and see how we will proceed in the future.

Tonight is our meeting with the Director of Special Education for the Diocese. Ms. Bethany Robicheaux will be on hand to discuss this program which St. Elizabeth is happy to be able to house beginning next school year. We will start at 7:00 pm in the Community Center.
