“All of life’s important relationships thrive under the condition
of carefree timelessness. Learn to waste time with the people you love.”
~ Matthew Kelly
Message from Principal Angie Krauss:
Thank you to everyone for your contributions that made our annual Fund Run a huge success! This event works to build community amongst our students and families while offering financial support! It gives us all a chance to come together from youngest to oldest while celebrating our school and the relationships that are fostered here. Also, I would like to extend a special thank you to Bri Barbieri for leading Fund Run and all our parent volunteers that came alongside our staff and students to help in whatever capacity was needed.
This week is our 8th grade graduation Mass on June 7th at 5:00pm at St. Aloysius Church. This capstone event allows us an opportunity to celebrate and pray for them as they prepare to share their God given talents as graduates of St. Aloysius Gonzaga. Today at Monday Morning Prayer we talked about how proud the community is of them and how our hope is that they will feel God’s presence in their daily lives as they go forth to light the world on fire!
May your week be filled with many unexpected blessings.
In Christ’s Peace,

Important Notes & Reminders:
St. Aloysius Fall Sport Sign Up! Sign up is continuing for St. Aloysius Gonzaga Fall Sports. Just Google “St. Aloysius Gonzaga Family ID” to sign up! It’s easy and if your child has played St. Al’s Sports before, registration will be very quick! It is not necessary to pay at this time, however, it is good to sign up early to reserve your child’s spot and help the Athletic Department prepare for the fall.
For 5 & 6 Tackle Football and 7 & 8 Tackle Football, please see flyers attached and sign your child up now! Registration is $85.00 if it is done before June 5; the fee jumps to $135.00 after this date because we must buy equipment early and also for team formation (which schools will play with our team). Questions? Call Pete at 509-362-4411.
CAST of CHARACTERS DRAMA CAMP Info:
Back by popular demand, this two-week intensive camp inspires Spokane’s youth to be creative and imaginative. Within two weeks, campers will put on a full musical production, complete with improv and choreography, as well as having a blast while doing it. Originally brought to Spokane by Andi and Sean Kane, CAST has been around for over a decade and still going strong! CAST is located at Gonzaga Prep in Spokane, WA and run by Cataldo Drama Director Jenna Solberg as well as Yours Truly (along with a host of wonderful high school-aged counselors).
CAST runs from August 6-17, Monday-Friday, 9am-3pm. Registration costs $250, but we do have some scholarships available (please contact Mr. Barfield if you’re interested). CAST is open to all students going into grades 4-9, and it’s not just for St. Al’s kids. Know an All Saints actor who’d be interested? Forward this along! But hurry before it’s too late! There are a limited number of spots this year. Follow this link to Prep’s website to register: https://goo.gl/sy7cpo
