Girls on the Run!
The St. Louis Blues and Famous Footwear surprised Cabrini’s Girls on the Run team at their March 18th practice! They partnered to provide each of our girls with a new pair of running shoes and a goodie bag containing a water bottle, socks and headband! Louie and the Blues cheerleaders came along to cheer on the girls! We are grateful for the support and generosity of Famous Footwear, the St. Louis Blues and Girls on the Run St. Louis!
First grade enjoyed our third seasonal walk to Benton Park on March 14th. We observed the natural world in late winter, wrote and drew our observations and made predictions about how things would change when spring arrived. Benton Park is first grade’s favorite outdoor classroom!
Note from Mrs. Koetting
I hope you all enjoyed a restful and fun-filled spring break. Spring is definitely in the air at Cabrini! We are enjoying more outdoor adventures with our garden, walks to the park, field trips, and of course, recess! Our classrooms and hallways continued to be filled with joy and learning.
Our early enrollment period was a huge success with all eligible families re-enrolling for the 2019-20 school year. We are also looking forward to welcoming several new families including Kindergartners. Thank you all for spreading the good news about Cabrini and inviting family and friends to join our community!
We have many exciting upcoming events including Holy Week activities, 5th grade dance competition, field trips, First Communions, field day, our annual dinner & auction, and 8th grade graduation. Please pray for us, as we pray daily, with gratitude, for our families and generous supporters.
