St. Dominic Jr. CYO is for all 7th and 8th graders of the parish. We will participate in social, spiritual and service activities throughout the year. Calendars will be sent at the end of each month for the following month. They will also be on the www.stdominicmobile.org website. Many events will need chaperones. Please consider helping out when asked.
For some summer activities, RSVPs are extremely important (**). Don’t miss out because you didn’t prepare ahead of time. We will also need chaperones for any activity away from the Spirit House . Please ask your parents to give a little time. They never pay for the activity that they chaperone. Call Mrs. Upton to volunteer. If we don’t have chaperones, we don’t have the activity.
Please post this so you won’t lose it. I will be reminding you through email and Remind texts, but don’t use those as your only tools.
And most importantly, please send in the attached forms ASAP. That way I can communicate changes and additions, as well as reminders.
Now for the summer plans!!!
