We had a great time with the students this week on the 100th Day of School! I hope that you saw some of the photos from this fun day – I’m always amazed at the creativity of this group!
Next week will be busy and fun, as well as being a short week! Tuesday is one of my favorites – Valentine’s Day! We’ll celebrate the wedding of Q and U that morning and then enjoy an Ice Cream Sundae Party with our friends in the afternoon. On Thursday, our Kinder and 1st grade students will entertain us with the musical, Stone Soup, before we all leave at 11:30 am that day for the Winter Break.
Spell-a-thon Fundraiser – Next week, you will receive information regarding our Spell-a-thon fundraiser. Spell-a-th0n is an easy and effective way for our school to earn money, AND the great thing is…our students will be learning and directly involved in the process! Look for more information on Wednesday, Feb. 15th!
Re-enrollment Packets – Reminder…Wednesday, Feb. 15, 2017 is the last day to lock in at the 2016-2017 rate and avoid the tuition increase for 2017 – 2018!
Jump Rope Club Performing at the Texas Legends Game – Come out and support our Jump Rope Club on Friday night, Feb. 24th! Students in the club do not need to purchase a ticket, but all others attending the game may purchase tickets at https://www.eventbrite.com/e/st-philips-episcopal-schools-night-with-the-texas-legends-tickets-31304923870. Thanks to Coach Gina Binyon for providing this great opportunity for our students and school!!
Have you heard about the Trifecta occurring tonight? There will be a full moon, a lunar eclipse, and a comet – hoping for clear skies!!
Wishing you a wonderful weekend!
