Fun on the Front Lawn – 11.08.19

St. Al’s students have worked hard the first quarter of the year and the St. Alphonsus faculty and staff would like to celebrate them (and you!) with an afternoon of fun and frozen treats! Stop in any time from 3:30-6:30 p.m. on Friday, November 8th, for a snow cone (on us) and some fun in the fall sun.

Let the children run and play on the school’s front lawn while you cool off and catch up with other parents and friends. It’s just a small way we can say “thank you” for being a part of the St. Al’s family.
 
*Please note that this is a date change. Fun on the Front Lawn was originally scheduled for October 18th but moved due to weather.
