After Concert Ice Cream Social

I want to thank Joe and Caroline Davis, Kathe Annelin, and Julie George for all their help in organizing and cleaning up from, last week’s Ice Cream Social. It was a great time!

 

Parent/Staff Survey-Looking for Feedback

Throughout this school year, I have been approached about the number of events that are scheduled at the end of the year. One of these events is the Student Recognition Assembly. Please look over the survey, and if you would like, let me know your thoughts. If you would like to do it electronically, please click here. If not, please complete the paper copy that we will send home. Please give me your thoughts by next Thursday. Thanks!

 

Thank You Extended Care Parents

A huge “Thank You” to all of our Extended Care families for their patience and understanding when Extended Care was suddenly closed due to the city water main shut-offs.  We apologize for the inconvenience it caused all of our families. 

 

 

Child Lures

Each Spring, we are required by the Diocese to teach the Child Lures Safety Course. This program helps the diocese meet the requirements of the Charter for the Protection of Children and Young People. This program has been featured on Oprah, Today Show, CNN and 48 Hours. The Child Lures program teaches important information on how to stay protected from unsafe people, behaviors, and situations. The Diocese of Saginaw found this program the best available for training children. The program will be taught in each of our classrooms from Kindergarten through 5th grade. A more detailed letter is attached.

 

5th Grade Loons Trip

Next Thursday, our 5th Grade students will be leaving after Mass to go to the Great Lakes Loons game. It will be a fun time.

 

Schedule Change for May 26

With May 26 being the Friday before Memorial Day, and that we have enough instructional hours, May 26 will be a half-day of school, with an 11:00 a.m. dismissal. We will be offering Extended Care on this day.
