On Thursday, October 31st, 2019 St. Joan of Arc Catholic Elementary School will be hosting its annual Halloween Dance-a-Thon, which is the school’s major fundraiser for the year. The money raised will go directly to students (K-Grade 8) to support the purchase of learning materials, equipment, and technology.

Reminder about Lunches/Snacks: Please not Peanuts, Treenuts, Seafood or Egg (in Raw Form)
Keeping our students safe is paramount and we ask that parents carefully pack their children’s lunches. We have several students in our school who live with severe life-threatening allergies to peanuts, nuts, seafood, egg and other foods (anaphylaxis). All snack and food items should be nut free, as well as any particular items that are identified by the classroom teachers (i.e. sesame seeds, Fish and Eggs). Likewise, we ask that no substitute nut spreads (peabutter, wow butter, etc.) be sent to school as they smell and look exactly like peanut butter. Please continue to choose items carefully when sending lunches and snacks (from home and restaurants) to school, keeping in mind specific allergies in your child’s classroom. Please remember that there are no food celebrations in class.
Yours in Faith and Learning,
Mr. N. Laratta
