Dear Families,
In case you missed my “Vision – Catholic Church in Bettendorf” email last Thursday, follow this link to learn more about the ongoing project to meet the needs of the Catholic community in Bettendorf. Our Lady of Lourdes and St. John Vianney are working together to create a vision of how best to meet these needs.

What is going on in Preschool/PreK today? A special visitor, that’s what! The morning classes had missed their visit from the Wapsi Environmental Education Center, so it was rescheduled, and he came back today! Students got to see a shiny, wet critter creeping up their presenter’s arm! 

Please bring yourself and a friend to the Lourdes Home & School Meeting tonight at 6pm at the old Church Office off of Brown Street (1506 Brown St.) We will be meeting in the conference room in the back. You can see for yourself how the meetings are run, what the needs are, and how easy leadership/volunteering at school can be! Plus, it’s a great way to share your voice and opinions. If you can’t make it and have questions about getting involved, feel free to reach out to Megan Stopulos at 563-650-7918 or meganstopulos@ruhlhomes.com. We look forward to seeing you tonight! 

It’s not too late to register to attend Lourdes Starry Night on March 28! Use this link to register. Wednesday, March 11 is the last day to register at the discounted rate. This adults-only evening is a great way to get to know other parents, parishioners, and school staff while supporting our school.
