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 rarely 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!!!
**Friday, June 8th : 2:00 – 4:00 : “Water, water, water” Party. Wear your bathing suit with an old t-shirt and shorts over it. Bring a towel. We’re going to get WET! (We’ll hold this as long as lightening is not in the area.) There will be all sorts of games. I NEED chaperones!

**Weds., June 20th : Christian Xtreme Bowling at Skyline Lanes from 9:00 p.m. to 11:00. (Note the change.) No need for reservations. We have room for 42, including chaperones, so it’s on a first-come basis. Cost is only $10 to bowl (bring it that night), and the permission form on our website. You will pay for your own food or drinks. CHAPERONES, please call Mrs. Upton ahead so she knows we have enough to help.
Thursday, July 5th: We will be cooking and serving a meal at Ronald Mc Donald House. Because it’s so hard to arrange who brings stuff, I will get all supplies. If you’d like to donate $ towards the meal, bring it with you that evening or mail it to me. I need to know who is joining me ASAP. We’ll meet at 5:15 at 1626 Spring Hill Ave. We’re cooking “Breakfast for Dinner”. This can be a family event if you choose.
**Sunday, July 8th : Slip N Slide Kickball vs. the high schoolers from 6:30 -8:30 pm. This is crazy fun. Again, wear your bathing suit under your clothes that will get very wet. Bring a towel and possibly extra clothes. Meet on the field. Definitely need some adult help. Join in the fun.
