Dear St. William Families,

We are entering a very exciting week of activities for our 8th grade students and the last week of school for our Preschool and Junior Kindergarten students!

Please be sure to mark your calendars with the events below and refer to the website for this week’s copy of the Knightly News.

I would like to invite all of our school moms to consider joining me and a group of ladies from Holy Family Novi for an evening of worship,friendship and a deeper dive into scripture using Lectio Divina. Come and see what “Women of Light” is all about with our sisters in Christ from “Our family of Parishes” Please see the flier below for the details.

Please join us in collecting “New” board , cloth, or age appropriate books for babies and toddlers.These donations will go to The Right to Life Baby Shower which takes place in June. We will collect donations from May 24 through June 2.

Please mark your calendars for May 27th! We will have a Kona Ice Truck in the parking lot after school for students and families to order a frozen ice drink!

In His Love and Joy, 

Mrs. Betsy Gabrish

PSA News: 

News from the PSA:

Next year’s PSA Fundraiser will be a Fun Run for all students held on Friday, October 1st.  We are in need of volunteers to help with planning as well as running the event the day of.  If you are interested in helping, please contact Dina Karim (248) 227-6582.  We will be holding planning meetings this summer.

We will be adding a Middle School Events Coordinator position to the PSA Board for the 2021 – 2022 school year.  The goal is to host 2 – 3 events geared specifically to our middle school students.  As part of the Family of Parishes initiative, St. William will begin more association with St. James, Holy Family, and St. Joseph South Lyon.  We will be inviting middle school students from those parishes to also participate in these events. The ideal candidate would have a student in middle school at St. William for the 2021 – 2022 school year.  If you are interested in this position, please contact Ann Kenyon (313) 405-2461.


Drop in Yoga classes for parents and anyone over 18 on Friday’s Classes are $15 per person and can be paid at the beginning of class.
