Holy Ghost News


September 28, 2018

Dear Holy Ghost Families,


Wow, time really does fly! I can’t believe that Monday is the first of October and we have been in school for over 6 weeks already. October brings some fall traditions to Holy Ghost, Parent-teacher conferences are right around the corner, there is sign up information included in this month’s newsletter. October 26th is our annual parent association Halloween Dance in the school gym. And a sad day for all the shorts lovers out there, October 15th is the last day until Spring that shorts are allowed as part of the dress code.


One other great new tradition of fall is the Holy Spirit Parish Sprit Days this weekend. Lots of fun and great food both Saturday and Sunday.


Blessings to you and your family,

Mr. Todd Wessels, Principal
