As the days turn colder, please make sure to send your child with proper clothing to go outdoors for recess.  This includes a heavy winter coat, gloves, hat and scarf. If your child is in need of a coat, gloves, hat or scarf, please contact the school office.  Students will be going outside to play on chilly days!  Our recess is 15 minutes long.  Please plan accordingly!

St. Vivian students collected enough food to create 12 full Thanksgiving baskets! Twelve families will enjoy a wonderful holiday thanks to your generosity!  Well done St. Vivian!  Students and staff may have a Spirit Wear day on Monday November 19th for doing an amazing job with our food drive.  Spirit Wear tops and uniform bottoms please!

The Jingle Bell Shop is a fun Christmas shopping experience for our children. The students may purchase gifts priced $5.00 or less for family and friends. The Shop will be held on Thursday, December 6th and Friday, December 7th. We will set up on Wednesday, December 5th. As with all PTA events, we need volunteers to help with this event! You must be Virtus trained to volunteer during the Shop hours. Any help is appreciated! Our children greatly enjoy this experience, which gives me joy to help with it! However, we do need other volunteers to make this a memorable experience for our children! Thank you all for volunteering!

A sign up genius is set up for volunteers. The link is

You may sign up or email me at to schedule hours or if you have any questions.

PTA is already getting ready for Christmas.
Students LOVE participating in the Jingle Bells Shop Dec. 5-7. It’s a great way for our kids to learn how Christmas is about giving and not just receiving. We need LOTS of volunteers to help this run smoothly. Please consider signing up for a shift either after school for set up, or during the school day to help kids. Virtus Training is necessary for Thursday and Friday helpers. We are currently planning on having a Virtus Trained Child Care worker for Friday, so if you have a child that needs to be watched while you volunteer, PTA will provide childcare free of charge.

APB on Volunteers
Catholic Schools Week is Coming up January 27 – Feb 2 2019. PTA will be having many events requiring volunteers that week, including Everybody Counts on Jan 30 and 31 as well as Teacher Appreciation Luncheon Feb 1. Please consider becoming Virtus Trained and getting your background check before then to volunteer. Or if you are already Virtus Compliant, please consider making plans to help make that a very special week for our students and teachers.

Christmas Concert Host
PTA provides a light snack after the Christmas concert every year. This year we will need 2 or 3 “hostesses” to help set up the refreshments. It would be best to have a parent in the upper grades as they will not be the ones performing. It’s relatively simple job, please contact if interested.
