8th Grade Star of the Week
A d e y e m i s i R.
April 2, 2019
On Thursday, April 11th our 8th grade will be having their transition retreat at the Holy Redeemer Retreat Center in Oakland. This is a fun and exciting event for our students where they can reflect on their year, look toward the future and gain experience and expertise from our wonderful high school leaders. We have 5 leaders coming from Arroyo and Moreau Catholic High Schools to share their experiences and wisdom.
The students are to be dropped off outside of the center between 8:15-8:30 and should be picked up at 2:45. The facility does not open until 8:00 and our retreat facilitator has requested some time with the retreat leaders before students arrive. Carpools will work best. Please make arrangements with other parents if you are not able to drop off and/or pick up your child at those times.
Students can wear comfortable free-dress clothing. We will be doing activities outside, so a sweatshirt/sweater is recommended.
We are lucky to have parents who volunteered to coordinate food and snacks on the day of the retreat. Students will not need to bring a lunch that day. Don’t forget to cancel any hot lunch orders for that date! Feel free to e-mail me if you have any questions.
