Dear KT Family/Friends,

 

Today we started what we hope to be our first full uninterrupted week of in-person instruction today for students in grades TK-12! More good news: Napa County has now moved out of the red category into the orange category so that means that more businesses will be open at higher capacities. The last thing we need to happen is a backsliding like we had last summer, so let’s keep up the mask-wearing, social-distancing, and hand-washing!

 

A huge thank you to Bob Quinn for preparing and selling (and you for buying!) 27 Oktoberfest-to-Go dinners last FridayThank you also to the numerous individuals who helped on Saturday at a record-breaking Agape which served over 300 people!  Tomorrow, we will kick off our annual Christmas wreath fundraiser which is a perfect fundraiser for the COVID-19 era. Last year we netted almost $9,000 and we expect to surpass that number this year. Students will receive an order form and envelope and will have until November 17th to sell Christmas wreaths. More details and prize incentives will be announced in-person to students tomorrow.

 

Picture Day is this Friday, Oct. 23rd. All parents should have received information from Mrs. Cuevas about the new format for this year.

 

Our tradition of 1-2 grade All Saints presentations continues on Thursday, Oct. 29th @ 2:00 P.M. with a slightly different venue and format. The students will present on the stage outside and we are asking only parents of 1-2 graders to attend to keep our crowd at a minimum.

 

Join us from within the comfortable confines of your car and truck for a fun, family-friendly, and only slightly scary drive-in movie night on Friday, Oct. 30th where we will proudly present the classic Halloween TV Special “It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown” followed by the classic “Abbot and Costello Meet Frankenstein”. Snacks and refreshments will be sold at $1.00-a-piece. Arrival begins at 6:30 and the movies begin @ 7:00 P.M.

 

Prayer Requests

 

Please pray for the repose of soul of Henry Ramirez, Jay Hipolito’s grandfather. Thank you for your continued prayers for Deana Muth, wife of former principal Brian Muth, who had a brain tumor successfully removed last week. She is recovering very well!

 

Please continue your prayers for John Carr who recently underdent more aggressive treatment for cancer.  He is deeply appreciative to you all for the prayers.

 

Thank you for your continued prayers for former Kolbe Academy student (and my classmate) Michael Arribage who is currently battling stage-4 kidney cancer. His treatment continues to move in a very positive direction. Please continue to keep Bethany Pham, an 8-year girl battling cancer who is a student at St. Apollinaris Catholic School, in your prayers.

 

 

Ad Majorem Dei Gloriam,
