Dear Parents and Friends,
Our teachers and their students took advantage of the beauty our school environment by taking learning outside. As I glanced out my office window this morning I observed our sixth and seventh grades gathered in small groups fully engaged in group projects. Many of our classes were out on the grounds cleaning, planting and weeding. The fifth grade class is currently experiencing the beauty of Redwood Alliance. Although today is officially “Earth Day” we appreciate celebrating God’s creation throughout the year.
Our Jog-a-Thon/Color Run is this Friday. This is always a fun event for our students and a great “fun”d raiser for our school. The “fun” continues on Saturday with our Spring Carnival from 12:30 to 4:30. An amazing committee and many volunteers have a wonderful day planned for you and your family and friends.
Our eighth graders will receive the Sacrament of Confirmation this Sunday at 5:00pm. You are welcome to gather with them. Please keep them in your prayers.
2015 – 2016 School year: Tuition Contracts will be mailed this week. Please return your signed contract by May 1, 2015. This helps the office with planning. We look forward to welcoming you back to the 2015-2016 school year as well as welcoming many new families.

Dec 4, Middle School Night event in the Marin IJ.was so touched by the generosity of our students in response to the devastation the Philippine earthquake inflected upon his hometown of Bohol. Engaging in a game of Money Olympics, $1650.00 was raised by all the classes, which will be sent to Father Al’s home parish and school. He has asked us to continue holding the Philippines in our prayers as they continue to be challenged with natural disasters.
