May 30, 2023
It’s amazing to me to think that the 2022-2023 school year is just about over. Only a few more big events and the year will be a wrap. Most classes have enjoyed their field trips and are eagerly looking forward to Field Day. Students in grade 8 are anxiously awaiting the Baccalaureate Mass and graduation while our younger learners are preparing for their upcoming Step Up ceremonies.
Field Day is scheduled for Monday, June 5 with a rain date of June 6. Please check Mrs. Dudra’s website for information. Mrs. Dudra is in need of many volunteers to ensure the success of our annual Field Day.
With the end of the school year upon us, PreK and Kindergarten classes will be ending a few days prior to the rest of the school. Students who are typically dismissed in “preschool siblings” will still be dismissed at that door. The dismissal routine will not change for this school year.
All students entering kindergarten through eighth grade are expected to complete summer work and summer reading. This also includes IXL for students entering second through eighth grades. Please make sure that you are able to access IXL so that your student doesn’t fall behind. It should be the same information that they’ve been using all year. The information about summer reading and summer work expectations will be listed on teacher websites, and hard copies will be coming home early next week. Additionally, supply lists for the coming school year will be listed on the websites for the coming school year. Please make an effort to stay on top of this during the summer months so as to avoid stress in August.
MAP Testing has been completed for the year. Scores are used to determine eligibility for extra help in the areas of reading, language, and math. We are in the process of analyzing the scores and making recommendations for students whose parents/guardians may want them to have extra help in the areas of reading, language, and/or math. If your child is currently eligible for services, please sign and return the 407-1 promptly so as to assure that we are ready to go in the fall. The MAP scores for the year will be sent home with report cards in June.
Here are a few dates that you need to be aware of:
June 1 - Last day of afterschool clubs including Homework Club
June 2 - 8th Grade Baccalaureate Mass and Graduation
June 5 - Field Day
June 7 - PreK4 - Step Up
June 8 - PreK3 - End of Year Program
June 9 - Kindergarten Step Up Program

June 13 - Early dismissal at 11:30 a.m. & last day of aftercare

Thank you for your continued support of Catholic Education and our wonderful school.
Wishing you a great week,
Mrs. Theresa Craig, M.Ed.
