What's Happening This Week-----February 8th Through February 12th

A special thanks to parents and students alike that sent in thank you cards, candy and gifts, to me, for Teacher/Staff Appreciation Day. It is always so nice to be remembered on special days.   I  enjoy teaching all of the students at Our Lady of the Snows School.  Thank you for that privilege and for sending your gift from God {your child} to our school.
It was nice to see such a great turn out for the Italian Feast.
