Happy October! What a great start to the Fall season we have been having here in WNY. The Fall is a wonderful time to remember the many gifts we have as the harvests are being gathered and the leaves are being raked. Here at Queen of Heaven, I have found many gifts: 20 wonderful staff members, a wonderful new secretary, and over 100 smiling faces!
Perhaps you were wondering how to share the gifts you have. We are looking for dynamic volunteers in the cafeteria every day. If you have time to spare between the hours of 11:00-1:00, please consider volunteering to help monitor the lunches and to sell snacks. Our children’s safety and nourishment depend on having helpful hands available during this time. Please call the office at 674-5206 if you can help. Anyone that volunteers in the cafeteria for 3 days will earn a DRESS DOWN COUPON for your child(ren). See page 4 for details.
We had our first Buddy Day experience last week. What a great day it was for the children to connect with other students. 8th graders read with Kindergarten; 7th graders colored with Pre-K; 6th grade worked on puzzles with 3rd graders; 5th graders read with 2nd grade; and 4th graders joined in reading with the 1st graders. Check out the picture page for kids in action!
Student Council campaigning has wrapped up and the voting is over. As of this publication we cannot announce the winners. Congratulations though to all the candidates for striving towards leadership and for wanting to make a difference in their school!
This Friday (10/4) is a 15 minute early dismissal day. This is an Emergency Drill that all districts in WNY will be doing. Please plan accordingly. Thank you to everyone that participated in the Innsbrook fundraiser. The deadline is this Friday. The candy bar sale is going on. If you need more cases to sell, please come to the office. Entertainment books will be going home tomorrow (10/3).
God bless us all on this journey together! ~Mary Damico, Principal
