February Friday Night Bash: SNOW TUBING @ Elm Creek Park Reserve

In February, we will be going snow tubing at the Elm Creek Park Reserve in Maple Grove! (Address: 12400 James Deane Pkwy, Maple Grove, MN 55369) We will be there on Friday, February 3rd from 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm. The cost is $17, but scholarships are available, and adult chaperones can tube for free!

Please register by January 27th at this form.

A NOTE ABOUT CHAPERONES: We are really in need of adult chaperones to help us keep these events running smoothly and safe! If you or your middle schoolers have enjoyed FNB in the past, please consider volunteering for 1 or 2 chaperone shifts this year to keep this series possible. If we do not have enough chaperones on the Wednesday before a given event, it will be canceled. Chaperones need to be VIRTUS-certified, but email me if you haven’t completed that process, or aren’t sure. Sign-up for chaperone shifts is here.

Basketball Season Has Started! We are excited for our 3 STS Basketball teams this season! Home games are listed above if you want to come cheer them on!

Virtue of the Month: Fortitude

St. Therese students all learn about a virtue each month through our Virtues in Practice curriculum. Each grade level also learns about saints that exemplify that virtue. This month, we are learning about Fortitude!
