Battle of the Books

Create your team.  Read the books.  Let the battles begin!

It's time to start thinking about Battle of the Books.  Students can sign up their team of 2 - 5 members with Mrs. Gonner in the library any time.   There are 10 books per grade level to read for the battle.  The Mazzuchelli school battles to determine which team moves on to the District battle will be April 15th for 6th grade,  April 16th for 7th grade, and April 17th for the 8th grade.  The school battle will take place in the library during exploratory time.   The team that wins their grade level will move on to the District battle on Wednesday, May 7th at the Keystone building on Chaney.  That battle usually starts at 9:30.  For more information, contact Mrs. Gonner.

Hidden in Plain Sight

Wahlert Catholic High School and Mazzucchelli Catholic Middle School are teaming up with the Dubuque Police Department to offer a presentation called "Hidden in Plain Sight." We invite all parents and staff (no children, please) to come to this unique and informative presentation.

The "Hidden in Plain Sight" room is a concept used by drug prevention programs to bring awareness to parents, educators and caregivers of the trends in the drug culture. The "room" consists of two walls and furniture that would typically be found in a bedroom. The police will place various drug-related items around the room that are often difficult for parents to recognize. This will also include items used for vaping/juuling.

Please join us for this beneficial presentation on  Tuesday, February 19th at 6:30 pm in the Kehl Family Commons (Wahlert cafeteria) to become more informed and help combat drug use in our schools and community. No registration required.

Once again, this presentation is for adults only. Please do not bring your children.


Lost and Found 

If your child has lost any jewelry or glasses please have them check in the office. We have quite a few items waiting to be claimed.
