Rise to the Top with
Boxtops for Education!!!  
New contest!  Let's rise to the top of  the thermometer with a goal of 2000 Boxtops before Christmas Break.  There will be a dropbox in the school hallway.  There are also boxes in the back of churches. 
Help the students win a popcorn party!
We need just 600 to reach our goal; please keep the Boxtops coming!

       Please continue to save and bring Boxtops to school all year.  This year we will be competing as a school – no individual grades competing against each other.  If we as a school meet our goals, the entire student body will earn a reward.  Families will work together to collect and turn in Boxtops. 
       Please turn in the Boxtops as you collect them. Expired Boxtops cannot be used. 
       Collection boxes will be available at school.  Boxtops may be dropped off at the churches at anytime.  
       Thanks for collecting Boxtops! At ten cents each, they do add up!

St. Dennis School Mission Project

        Fr. Francis visited Nebraska in December.  On Thursday, December 17, Fr. Francis concelebrated Mass with Fr. Leo.  The Fr. Francis visited the classroom and spoke to the children, answering numerous questions.  It was a very interesting visit; it brought the goal of mission home to the children in a very real way.
        Diane Lefler from West Point visited the St. Dennis Mission in Uganda, Africa from May 31 to June 16.  Together with her son and a friend, Diane brought over 800 pounds of pillowcase dresses, t-shirts, and drawstring backpacks to give to the students at St. Dennis School.  Diane shared her experience and pictures with the students at HCCS on Thursday, October 29.  For more details, visit the St. Dennis website:
