Weekly Grade School Announcements

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


  • The following parents are members of the School Advisory Committee for the 2017-2018 school year. These members are available for parents to talk to about general information, ideas for the school, questions or concerns.  Patricia Alba (student in Grade 4), Sarah Bomberski (students in Grades 1 and 3), Gary Borg (Dads’ Club Rep- student in Grade 5), John Falcon (students in Preschool 3 and Kindergarten), Jennifer Gordon (Mothers’ Club Rep-students in Grades 1 and 3), David Laidlaw (student in Grade 6), Matthew Mutschler (student in Grade 2), Meghan Swonder (Chairperson-students in Preschool 3, Kindergarten, Grade 2, and Grade 4), and Michelle Tobin (students in Preschool 3, Kindergarten, and Grade 2).
  • School Picture Day is this Friday, September 22nd. This is a non-uniform day.  Picture packages will come home through kid-mail on Monday, September 18th.  The order forms should be brought back to school on picture day.  If your child is absent on picture day, we will be scheduling a picture day retake.
  • Just a reminder that there is a gate and caution tape surrounding the area between the Early Childhood Center and the grade school building on the Woodward side. Since this area is still under construction, we would ask that parents not allow their children in this area to keep everyone safe.  This means not exiting the area by the first/fourth grade doors by the back of the building into the Woodward lot.  Also, we ask that children not play on the little playground by the first and fourth grade doors until all of the children are picked up at dismissal.
  • The Shrine Alumni Networking Group is a group of professionals who meet on a monthly basis to help grow their businesses. Each month, there is a guest speaker who gives a presentation.  The next meeting is Wednesday, September 20, at 11:30 a.m. at the High School.  The speaker will be Elli Altman who is a consultant with Vision Specialists of Michigan.  Everyone from the Shrine community is invited.
