We used Monday, January 19th as our first
snow make up day. Our second snow make up day will be
Friday, May 15th. VCS will NOT be in session that day
so we will NOT have buses or hot lunch.

Catholic Youth of the Month
Our very own Margaux Fortney was selected by the Northwest
Indiana Catholic Newspaper as the Catholic Youth of
the Month for December. If you receive the paper, it
was in December 19th's edition. Here is what was written:"A
member of Saint Paul Church, having attended Saint Paul
Catholic School since kindergarten, 8th grader Margaux
Fortney is involved in various ministries throughout
the campus. A member of the Childrens and Junior
Choirs since 2008, Margaux is also an altar server for
Sunday liturgies and during the school year for many
funerals. Margaux recently represented the EDGE (Middle
School Youth Group) ministry by speaking at the Mass
promoting this newer ministry throughout the church.
Margaux is an active member of EDGE. Known for her warm
and friendly personality, Margaux is welcomed both in
the school and church community. Margaux steps up to
the plate to volunteer for any task, and is always offering
to help in any way. The Saint Paul community is very
blessed to have such a giving youth in our midst."
Way to go, Margaux: we are proud of you!
