Letter from Mrs. Skahan 12-4-17


December 4, 2017

Dear SCHS Families,


Happy Advent!  As we begin the Advent Season, our teachers and FISH Students will prepare us for the coming of Christ on Christmas Day. We will begin each Monday, with an Advent prayer service.  During this season, the Feast of the Immaculate Conception falls, a holy day of obligation.  Please remind your student to attend Mass on Friday, December 8th.


Congratulation to the girls’ and boys’ basketball teams for their great showing this week in their tournament play.  The boys won the Clever Invitational.  Both SCHS teams played well!


The SCHS Debate Team under Mrs. Hance’s direction hosted a very successful tournament this weekend.  There were 28 different high schools represented at this event.  Again, thanks to everyone who volunteered to judge and work the hospitality room.  


This week, the Leadership class will be hosting a couple events.  On Wednesday, December 6th, there will be a collection of toiletry items for Rare Breed.  Students who bring in at least one item will get an out of uniform pass.  Please see the attached flyer.  Also, on Thursday, there will be a mixer for Anna Smith’s Family.  Anna just finished her second round of treatment and has had a rough week.  I am hoping she is on the mend from it.  


On Monday, at 7 PM at Holy Trinity, Roy Petitfils,  author and speaker will  speak to parents of teens.  Roy will  inspire any parent who is or will be raising teeagers.  Please make every effort to attend this event that is sponsored by our diocese and schools.  


Mr.  Petitfils will speak to our students on Tuesday at 9 AM.  Parents are invited to join us then too.


As we approach the end of the semester, try to keep your student focused and in attendance every day.


Hope you have a blessed week and hope your Advent is full of hope, peace, joy and love.

Jeanne Skahan
