12 DAYS OF SHARING AND CARING: We will participate in our annual Advent 12 Days of Caring and Sharing from December 3-18. One each of these 12 days, we will challenge our students to do particular acts of kindness as we prepare our hearts for Christmas. For example, on Wednesday, our students will be asked to say “hello” to at least 5 students from another class. We have a special activity or surprise planned for each day, as well. A calendar of the special activities is being sent home today.

FOOD DRIVE THANKS: Thanks to everyone who sent non-perishable food items for our Thanksgiving food drive. We collected 678 items to donate to local food pantries. Thanks for sharing your gifts with those in need. Congratulations to the 1st grade class who were the top food collectors, bringing in 138 items!. They will enjoy a special treat.

QND PLACEMENT TEST: QND will hold a Placement Test on Saturday, December 6th from 8:30 a.m. – 11:30 a.m. at Quincy Notre Dame High school for 8th grade students. This standardized test is the ACT Explore Test, providing a baseline for where a student is academically. All incoming freshmen are encouraged, but not required, to take the Placement Test. If students are unable to take the test, they are still welcome to enroll at QND. A parent meeting will be held at 10:30 a.m. regarding information about the test and QND.

Students will need to bring the following to the test: $13.00 testing fee (cash or check made payable to QND), three # 2 pencils, and a calculator (no graphing calculators). Students need to arrive between 8:00 a.m. and 8:25 a.m. Preregistration is not required. For more information, contact Bob Sheffield or Judy Liesen, QND guidance counselors, at 223-2479.

HORIZONS SHOE COLLECTION continues for outgrown, used and unwanted shoes. The collection container is in the main entryway of the school. Thank you for sharing your abundance with those in need.
