Read Across America Week, a HUGE Success!

What does a dinosaur, Saint Francis of Assisi, a cartoonist, a stubborn donkey, the desert of souls, Godโ€™s Storyteller, and a champion all have in common? Ask any Saint Olaf student, and they will excitedly share that those are all things that were a part of our Read Across America Week Festivities. Did you know that we had an author or two visit with our students? And by author or two, we mean 4 Catholic Authors with one still to come, one very local Utah author, and 3 nationally known-award winning authors!

Ash Wednesday March 2nd

Reminder that today is Formal Uniform Day and we will have Mass at 9:30 am.

In light of the recent events in Ukraine and the crisis unfolding there, we feel blessed to have a connection through Mrs. Braukmann that will allow our community to donate funds to a Catholic Ministry working in Ukraine. Combined with Pope Francis' call to prayer and fasting for today, Ash Wednesday there are several ways we can each serve. Click the Title to read a snippet of the correspondence from Mrs. Braukmann's friend with specific information of how to donate.

Our students had an awesome day on the mountain. Many learned to ski and snowboard while the more experienced got in a lot of great runs, while helping and encouraging the newbies. A great day was had by all. โ›ท๐Ÿ‚

Casual for a Cause in February helps CCS feed the hungry

This month's Casual for a Cause for Catholic Community Services is going to support the preparation of pantry packs for school age children, a "cause" near and dear to the Jaramillo Family from our community. In a non pandemic year, Addison's mom, Bobbi, would love to have Saint Olaf students help shop for meals and snacks and then pack the pantry bags. These bags go home on Friday with students who otherwise might not have access to adequate food over the weekend. Our thanks to Bobbi and Addison for mentioning this very important service. We look forward to helping beyond donations next year!

Taken from the CCS FB page:
CCS' Basic Needs Ogden facility provides Pantry Packs to children facing hunger in local schools.

We currently only have enough Packs to last through the end of February and are in need of donations.

For more information, contact Durrell Annis at or 801-428-1291.
