Weekly Grade School Announcements

Mission Statement:  At Shrine Catholic Grade School we try to exemplify Christ by praying, learning, and growing together.

Shrine Schools will welcome an Accreditation Team on Thursday and Friday of this week.  The Accreditation Team will consist of personnel from the Archdiocese of Detroit, as well as administrators and teachers from other schools.  It is always an exciting time to go through Accreditation.  It confirms all of the strengths within the school and establishes a guideline for the school improvement ahead.

Gym Shoes at Recess:  Students are now allowed to wear gym shoes during recess time.  They can change into their gym shoes before they go to lunch if they choose to do so.   This is optional.

Silly Sock Day:  As a fun event for March reading month, students may wear silly socks on Thursday of this week!

We wanted to let you know the Shrine School Raffle winners in case you were unable to attend the Auction:

  • Dan and Jacqueline Stagner – 1st Prize Tuition Credit
  • Josephine Amerpu – $2,000 Cash
  • Patty and Jason Alba – 3rd Prize Tuition Credit
  • Margaret Desmond – $500 Cash

Volunteer Hours:  Get ahead of the game and begin accruing your 6 operational volunteer hours for the 17/18 school year now while the sun is shining and the weather is warm!  Playground and safety duty are much more fun now than when it’s freezing cold!  Remember operational hours include 15 minutes for morning safety duty, 1.5 hours for playground, and 2 hours for lunchroom.


  • Keep a running record of your volunteer hours
  • You can trade operational hours for non-operational hours with another family
  • Please don’t wait until the February deadline to fulfill the volunteer operational hours requirement!
  • We really need help this week! Please email or call the office if you can help!
