Dear Parents and Guardians,
The first week of School went very well. The children seemed very happy to see their friends and I know the teachers were excited as well. This week began with Back to School Night for Grades K – 5. I was glad to see how many parents were able to attend.
Tomorrow, Thursday, September 12, is the Junior High Open House. I look forward to seeing those parents as well.
Some of the new things you will hear about are;
- A renovated Art and Music Room. Bishop Massa will be coming to Bless the two rooms on Friday, September 13 at 1:30. We look forward to hosting him. School Mass will follow at 2:00 pm.
- A new Gym Floor. We are waiting for the company to come and put in the lines. Our school logo will be featured in the center of the floor.
- New Teachers in the areas of Social Studies and Math. I know you are excited to meet them. Both are knowledgeable in their subjects and have already started creating a rapport with the students.
I hope that you are as happy as I am with these new beginnings.
Mrs. Barker asks that if you have not already done so, please register for FACTS. Please know that all information is private and the school does not have access to your financial information. We can enter your payment on FACTS, if you choose to pay in school.
Make sure you have your photo release agreement in as soon as possible. A tech agreement will be going home, first with the Junior High and later with the younger children. This is to guarantee the safety of your child and to incorporate safe use of the Internet in and out of school.
The Diocese has a program for parents to take if they wish to volunteer. It is called Virtus. If you do not have VIRTUS certification, we ask that you make the effort to take the course. This will allow you to participate in Field trips and other volunteer opportunities. The link is, https://www.virtusonline.org/virtus/. Create an account and then choose when to take the course. Please contact the school if you have any questions.
In a few weeks we will be starting our Afterschool Clubs. These clubs are: Chess – Nuts, Tiger Tennis, Intramurals and JumpBunch. As we receive them from the organizations I will forward them to you, our parents, via email.
There will be a meeting for the Walk a Thon on September 16 at 6 pm. We will meet in the Library. An email will be going out to those who filled out the Volunteer form wanting to participate on that day. Click here if you have not filled out that form.
Please contact me if you have any questions. Enjoy your week.
