HyVee’s Cash for Students program has begun.  Start saving those receipts dated September 1, 2017 thru December 31, 2017.  HyVee pays $1.00 for every $200.00 spent.  You can turn those into the school office or drop them in the H&S plastic tubs at both parishes. 



We are in need of a speech moderator this year for 7/8th grade.

If any parents that have completed Safe Environment Training are interested

please contact Mrs. Howard at

Thank you!


The Eagle's Nest was a BIG HIT at last year’s SOAR Dinner!

The SOAR Committee is asking for donations of gift cards to fill our Eagle's Nest for this year’s dinner.  We are still in need of silent auction items and if you have any baskets lying around we would love to take them off your hands too.  Please forward all donations to the school office, be sure to mark SOAR.  Thanks to everyone for helping to make this year’s SOAR Dinner one to be remembered!!!
