Dear Families,
We still have many slots available in our 2-day 3-year old Preschool and PM 4-year old PreK for the 2020-2021 school year. Contact the school office (jennifer.vandevoorde@lourdes.pvt.k12.ia.us) for a Hold-the-Spot form. (3-day Preschool and AM PreK are full, but you can request to be placed on the waiting list with your paid registration/documentation fee.) 
Do you have a child going into kindergarten this coming fall? Be sure to attend our Kindergarten Round Up on Tuesday at 6:00 PM! You and your future kindergartener can meet the kindergarten staff, see the classrooms, and learn more about what makes Lourdes the best place for kindergarteners!  This is the first opportunity NEW families to Lourdes can sign up for kindergarten, so invite your neighbors to come and check us out! 

8th Grader Shannon McFate was featured in the Quad City Times Bettendorf Student of the Week! We love and appreciate the peace and kindness that Shannon brings to Lourdes Catholic School every day. 
The all-Catholic Schools Science Fair was held last week at Assumption. Lourdes finalists 6th Graders Ellyanna Johnson and Emilee Johnson both entered their projects at the fair, and represented our school proudly! Congratulations to Emilee Johnson for taking the 2nd place ribbon! 
Don’t forget to order your Yearbook! To order online, go to www.jostens.com. A search bar will pop to enter school name.

Tonight, join us for some boys basketball in the gym. Admission to the games is one new ball (basketball, soccer, four-square) to be used by our students at recess. Alternately, if you choose top pay for your admission, funds will be donated to Lourdes Catholic School in order to purchase new recess equipment for students.
