Shrove Tuesday Parent Volunteers

We are currently looking for parent volunteers to support our upcoming Shrove Tuesday – pancake breakfast on February 25th…If you are available and have police check completed and on file with our main office please visit the following link

Shrove Tuesday has connections to our Catholic Faith Tradition.  Shrove Tuesday is always on the last day before Lent begins.  It is a day to FEAST before the penitence and fasting associated with Lenten. This pancake treat will not be breakfast or lunch, but will instead, serve as a morning snack for our students.
