Holy Trinity is once again having their Halloween Bash for students in grades 5-12! This event is open to anyone in the community whether they are an H.T. student, Religious Ed Student, L.P. student or whatever! The Bash is on Friday, Oct. 25th and permission slips and payment are due by Monday, Oct. 21st. Permission slips are available in the L.P. school office. HALLOWEEN BASH FOOD DRIVE CHANGED
Due to the driving regulations of Catholic Mutual (the HT insurance company), we will not drive around town to collect food on Friday October 25th. Instead we highly encourage people to still donate food items to the McLeod County food shelf, but we will not have students coming by to collect those items. Items may be brought to Holy Trinity School in the days prior to or the night of the Bash. We will ensure that those items are brought to the food shelf. Students are encouraged, as well, to bring donation items with them that evening. The rest of the Halloween Bash WILL take place as previously scheduled – just no drive around town to collect food prior to the games in the gym. Thank you for understanding the change in the food drive; we look forward to seeing you at the Holy Trinity Halloween Bash!!!
