Upcoming Celebrations

Halloween (Hallow’s Eve), All Saints Day and All Souls Day  

  • Friday, October 29: Orange and Black Day Out of uniform day – everyone is asked to dress in orange and black (pumpkin faces, etc. on shirts are acceptable). Class parties held in the afternoon. No costumes.

  • Embers Parent Association is hosting a “Trunk or Treat”. More details to come!

  • Monday, November 1: All Saints Day 

    Students are encouraged to ‘be a saint’! Students may include with their uniform something that symbolizes a saint they would like to represent that day. Any clothing item must be worn over uniforms — it is not an out-of-uniform day. 

  • Tuesday, November 2: All Souls Day

    Students may bring in a picture of someone they know that has passed away in the last year. The repose of their souls will be prayed for during the month of November. All Souls Day is a solemn celebration in the Roman Catholic Church to show respect to all of those who have died and are now in Purgatory, being made pure before entering into the presence of God in Heaven. The Holy Souls in Purgatory cannot pray for themselves, but we can pray for them to help them reach heaven sooner.

There will be no school on Monday, October 11, in observance of Columbus Day.
