Thank you to all of the Serra Padres who participated in our annual Tri-School Walk for Catholic Worker! We had an awesome showing of more than 50 Serra Padres, and a total of 200 Tri-School students. Serra students raised more than $1100, which was donated to the Catholic Worker House in San Bruno so that they can feed and shelter the homeless and hungry of San Bruno. Thanks again and see you next year!

Attention Padres: If you are interested in educational travel to Germany during spring break of 2018, there is a parent/student orientation meeting tomorrow night at 7 p.m. in room 106.
