Muffins For Mom & Donuts For Dad

Catholic Schools Week is about the busiest week of any Catholic School-it surely was for All Saints Catholic School. Here is the week in review:
Sun.,29th-9:30am Mass attended by faculty, parents & students with an open house for all,including parishioiners, at the school
Mon.,30th-"Hats Off to Catholic Schools" -students got to wear a hat of their choice today and also a Pep Rally-each class made up their own cheer about our school. Sr. Carol also attended a meeting with parents at Fort Huachuca to do some recruiting. One family of four children signed up for next year.

Tues., 1st-Muffins for Mom-Students started the morning in the cafeteria with their mom/grandma enjoying muffins. The newspaper came too and gave us front page coverage. YEAH!!!
Open house again for prospective new parents and also the parents of our students were asked to come and take part in their Art class that day. Mrs.Herig planned "Yarn Bombing"-google it and you will find it is the wrapping of yarn around things you see outside in the design you choose. Parents and students had lots of fun as you can see from the pictures.

Wed., 2nd-Donuts for Dad-another great start to the morning. Dismissal at 12:45pm because of the Benefit Concert put on by the Morales Brothers of Texas. One played classical guitar and the other a pianist. They did two performances for us: 2pm at our school and 6pm at St. Andrew's Catholic Church, also in Sierra Vista where some of our students come from. They were outstanding!! Our school choir also sang at both concers.

Thurs., 3rd-Career Day! We heard from the Chimney Sweeps, Sherriff with K-9 Dog, Fire Dept.,  a vet with her dog and the manager of Texas Roadhouse Restaurant.

Chimney Sweeps-a married couple from our parish.

The Vet letting PreSchool listen to the heart beat of Penna, the dog.

Sherriff from Cochise County with his $20,000 drug sniffing dog.

Fry's Fire Dept. from down the road from our school.

Texas Roadhouse Manager explaining how they must weigh every steak they have twice a day-that day they had over 600 steaks they had to weigh. Steaks lose weight the longer they are in the fridge. If you say 6 oz you better have a full 6 oz steak.
Blessing of throats by Father Ariel
Fri.,4th- a closing Mass preceded by benediction for First Friday and also the blessing of throats-two Catholic traditions in one Mass.

Sat.,5th-6am-1pm garage sale to raise money for the plane tickets of the four of us going to Camp Franciscan-2 girls, a mom and me. We made over $1,000!!!!!
Now-can you name this item that was in the garage sale-didn't sell because no one knew what it was. What is your guess?

Sun.,6th-Super Bowl Party at a parishioner's house!
The busy week was now over! Now the doldrums of winter may come-with snow maybe as they told me February is our coldest month.

P.S. I stopped at Dillards to check out the sales when a young lady came up to me and said, "Are you a Sister?" I said yes. She replied, " I have never seen a Sister before." She just stared at me in awe. She asked where I worked. So I explained what I did and where. She said, " I have just never seen a Sister in Sierra Vista and I have been here all my life." I explained how we are the first Sisters in Sierra Vista and that we just arrived in July. She then said, "Thank you for who you are and all that you do. "
