January 26, 2024 Newsletter


Dear Parents and Students - Happy Catholic Schools Week 2023-2024! Thank you for choosing St. Charles Borromeo School! Join us this Sunday after the morning Masses for coffee & donuts! Check out the Spirit Shop! Visit the Parish Hall to view Science Fair projects - back again after a four-year hiatus! Read through the Catholic Schools Week activities below to stay on top of the daily themes and events. We will cap the week with a Friday Pep Session and the Borromeo Bash on February 3rd! I cannot stress enough the importance of a faith-filled, Catholic education. Working together, we are forming young minds and souls, continuously planting seeds of faith, hope, love, mercy, and wisdom that will bear fruit throughout our students’ lives! May God bless and protect all in our School Community and continue to lead our young people along His path of peace and heavenly grace!         Sincerely - Rob S.
