Order forms can be picked up in the School or Parish Office or by going to the SKD School website and looking under the “Newsletter” section. The order form is right below our April Newsletter on our website. Orders are due by Mon., April 29th and will be ready by Fri., May 10th. They would make a great Mother's Day gift or be perfect for graduation. If you are not interested in purchasing a metal yard stake but would like to donate money for the resurfacing of our playground, please direct your donation to “SKD School.”

In order to make Specialty Day a big success, we will need many volunteers for the afternoon. Please consider volunteering to assist our presenters and/or provide refreshments for the volunteers. Please contact Sandy in the School Office at 275-6994 if you can help.
