Night of Lights 3A, 3B & 3C Ornament Instructions

Dear 3rd Grade Families,
All students are requested to participate in creating a themed ornament for their class trees to be displayed at the Night of Lights event on December 12th.
Every family has received (or will receive) a package in the mail from the Parish with a small flat wooden ornament for each student. In Art, each class decided upon a theme for their class tree with our art teacher, Mrs. Lewandowski.
3A: PEACE – Heavenly/Cosmic (heavens, stars, planets, angels, clouds)
3B: HOPE – Travel, inspired by favorite places you want to go or have been to (globe, flags, landmarks or objects from favorite countries; airplanes, cars, etc.)
3C: JOY – Animals forest wonderland
Each student should create an ornament to tie in with their class theme. They can use the wooden ornament or create their own. There is one tree for 3A, one for 3B and one for 3C. Each of the beautifully decorated trees will then be auctioned off at the Night of Lights event!
What to do:
  • Student create a themed ornament.
  • Label the back of the ornament with your child’s name and homeroom class.
  • Turn in your ornament to the Parish Office by Friday, December 4th. The Parish Office is located under the JCPC (entrance door is located on Selby Avenue). The office is open from 9:00 am – 4:00 pm daily.
VOLUNTEERS: If any parents would like to help decorate our class trees with the ornaments and other decorations during the week of December 7th at the school/church, please let us know! We would appreciate volunteers.
Thank you for supporting the Night of Lights event!
Your 3rd Grade Room Parents,
Jorge Gonzalez & Vanessa Panerosa

Join The Cub Scouts at St. Paul – 1st thru 5th Grades


With so many of our children’s regular sports and activities suspended in the current environment, are you looking for an opportunity for your son or daughter to see and learn fun, new things that might not be found anywhere else? Well then Cub Scouts is your answer! Cub Scouts are at that magical age where everything is new and possible and, most importantly, fun. They build things. Play with purpose. Make friends and work together. The life lessons learned here not only transform today’s Cub Scouts into tomorrow’s Scouts BSA members but also help form a foundation to embrace opportunity and overcome obstacles in life.

SPA’s Cub Scout Pack 55 is open to both boys and girls grades 1st through 5th, and they may join at any grade (there is no “catching up”). Scout activities occur once or twice a month and while our program has been modified this year due to the coronavirus, we look forward to a fun-filled Cub Scout program!

If you would like to learn more about Cub Scouts and SPA Pack 55, please email Cubmaster and SPA parent Marc Caruso at
