Summer Programming at JFK

Vacation Bible School:  Our Lady of Victory invites Children to Roar VBS: Life is wild, God is good.  At Roar VBS (Vacation Bible School), kids discover that even though life gets wild, God is good.  Roar is filled with incredible Bible-learning experiences kids see, hear, touch, and even taste!  Sciency-Fun-Gizmos™, team-building games, cool Bible songs, and tasty treats are just a few of the standout activities that help faith flow into real life.  Plus, we’ll help kids discover how to see evidence of God in everyday life—something we call God Sightings.®

Roar is for kids entering kindergarten to those entering 5th grade.   Roar VBS will be held July 22-26 and will run from 8:30 am to 11:30 am each day. Cost to attend is $25.  Click HERE for the registration form or us the following link/url:  https://www.olvjfk.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/04/VBS-flyer-for-2019-20.pdf

Special Dress Days

It seems as if this school year is going on forever.  Let’s put a little fun into our days with some special theme days.  (Tops will need to meet the out of uniform guidelines, and because it’s not fun when everyone is trying to determine whether one’s shorts are too short, we’ll stick with our uniform bottoms.)

Monday, June 3:   Silly Socks.  Wear silly socks along with your regular school uniform.

Tuesday, June 4:  Sports Day.  Wear a shirt, hat, and/or wrist band to support your favorite team.  Regular uniform bottoms are required.

Wednesday, June 5:  Field day.  Homerooms/grade levels often have special themes themselves.

Thursday, June 6:  Mass.  Regular uniform dress day

Time to Return Library Books

As we approach the end of the school year, please have your students return their school library books.  We will now no longer be checking out materials but trying to get them all back.  Currently, there are about 140 or more books checked out of our library.  At a conservative estimate of about $10 per book, we want to make sure they all come back to us!
