Mrs. Cooke’s Weekly Letter

August 24, 2017

Dear families,
WOW! It is so hard to imagine that August will be coming to an end soon, can you tell me where the past six weeks have gone????

I certainly hope that you are enjoying every last minute of summer break and taking the time to rest and refresh before the routine of school begins.

School opens on Wednesday September 6 with the bell ringing at 8:10am for grades Pre K-8th. We will dismiss at 11:30 both Wednesday and Thursday.
On Thursday, September 7 we will have our Nursery Orientation in the Parish center at 9 am and the first day of Nursery begins on Friday, September 8th.
Friday, September 8th will be our first full day of school, so please send your child in with lunch, drink and snack. Our hot lunch program will not begin till later in the month, so please be sure to pack lunch and snack for your child(ren).
Our back to School nights are Tuesday, September 12 for K-1 and 6-8. We will begin in the caf at 7PM sharp and then move to the classroom for information from your childs homeroom teacher. On Thursday, September 14 we will have back to school for grades 2-5, the process will be the same.

I know that we are having a slight problem with the new uniform company and the boys grey trousers. They are not the cargo pants that the company is showing you. I am working with them to straighten out this problem. In addition, we will not be stocking a supply of the polo shirts at this time. Please visit the uniform company or their web site for ordering.
Option C has informed us that if you have a email address that email will not be supported by Option C, this means that you will NOT get any Parent Alert emails from us. To fix this, please go into the parent portal and add a new email address such as Yahoo or google to your account.

Please look at the school calendar on the website for events and dates to know, it is really up to date.
Be well and be safe and I look forward to seeing you in September and hearing all about your vacations.
Maryann Cooke
PS. We are still offering the $500.00 reduction in tuition if you refer a friend or family member to our school, YOU are our best advertising- spread the good word!
