Tuesday after Epiphany


From the Headmaster, John Bertolini


Merry Christmas, Happy New Year, and a Blessed Epiphany Christmastide to you all! God-willing, you were able to relax, recharge your batteries, and most importantly, enter into the joy of the Christmas season. This joy, unfortunately, is mixed with sorrow as one of members of our school community, Chuck Rowles, passed away late last week. Chuck was father and uncle to many Kolbe-Trinity graduates and grandfather and uncle to many current students. We were truly blessed by his life, particularly since he was given 3-6 months and outlived his expected time by almost two years. May he rest in the peace of God.


Rosary and funeral information can be found later on in the memo. Parents are welcomed and encouraged to pick up their children no later than 10:45 to attend the funeral tomorrow at 11:00. Hot lunch will be available for purchase up until 12:30 for those students who will not be staying for the reception.


A belated thank you to all of the teachers, parents, students, and administrative staff who helped to put together such a nice Christmas program on Wednesday, Dec. 19th. We couldn’t have done it without all of your hard work and we greatly appreciate your time and effort.



Upcoming School Events


Jan 8 – HS Basketball League Home Opener vs. New Life – 6:00 (Girls)/7:30 (Boys) Postponed


Due to the rosary for Chuck Rowles, the high school home opener scheduled for tonight has been postponed.


Jan 9 – Hot Lunch (Breakfast for Lunch!) - $5


Maria Angulo will be preparing a special “breakfast for lunch” hot lunch tomorrow featuring pancakes, sausage, and eggs. There is no pre-order requirement for this hot lunch. Students simply must present their $5 to receive the lunch. Due to the fact that students from the TK-6 will be attending Chuck Rowles’ funeral tomorrow morning during their regularly scheduled lunch period, they are more than welcome to purchase hot lunch if they return before return.
