School and team/club photos will be held on Monday, April 24. Our photo time is tentatively set for 11:30 a.m. Please ensure your child arrives to school dressed in their full school uniform (sweater, white dress shirt, pants/kilt, navy socks, black shoes). We are hopeful that our P.E. class in the afternoon will go ahead, so please send the P.E. uniform (shorts and shirt should suffice) in a bag so that your child may change for P.E. after photos are taken.

In class, we have been discussing Holy Week and some of the students seemed very interested in attending some of the Masses during this Paschal Triduum. Here is the Mass schedule for St. Francis Xavier Parish for your reference (schedules for other parishes can be found at http://rcav.org/easter-holy-week-services/
