Junglesport is coming to St. Margaret!!!

 Just a reminder that there are two permission forms (one is online and can be signed online when you go to school cash online and the 2nd is the Consent form from Junglesport that was sent home). BOTH of these completed forms are needed for each student. The $15.00 is to be paid with School Cash Online only. 

Family Night is Wed. Feb. 13th! Three sessions are available but filling up quickly! Please send back the Family night form that was sent home last week if you are interested in coming, with your preference for which session you would like to attend! PLEASE NOTE: Ages 4 and up are able to participate. Also, students MUST be accompanied by an adult (parent/guardian) if they wish to attend this evening. You will be asked to sign the Permission Forms if you have not yet done so (e.g., if you are not a student at St. Margaret) if you are participating. Bring your running shoes for some climbing fun! At this time parents attending will be able to participate so bring your running shoes too!

We look forward to having Junglesport here in our school gym from Monday, February 11-Friday, February 15th!  Please visit their website at www.junglesport.com if you have any additional questions or to see videos and photos! Junglesport aligns with our Catholic Curriculum. Please read below for more information.

 If you have any additional questions, don’t hesitate to contact Mr. Schnarr or Mrs. Leamen at the school!
