Dear Parents and Guardians,
MAP Growth assessments are complete and teachers will attend professional development on Thursday, October 24, to learn how to interpret and apply the data. School is closed for students on October 24. MAP assessments will repeat in February and May so that we may measure individual progress of each student.
Students in Grades 1-5 will attend a Fire Prevention Assembly on Monday, October 21. The Follett Book Fair begins on Monday. Students may purchase books during the school day. Please see teachers’ websites for the day and time your child’s class will be able to shop. See the flyer for more information.
The Halloween Party will take place on October 25 from 6:30-8:30 pm. Please consider volunteering to assist at this family event. See the flyers for details.
The Home School Association is looking for volunteers for their events. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for information about volunteering. Our school has a very active Home School Association that provides many wonderful events for our students and families. I appreciate any time or special talents you may provide.
The Halloween Parade will begin on October 31 at 12:00 pm in the parking lot. Students may dress down and should bring costumes in a bag labeled with their names. No weapons or objects that may be perceived as weapons should be sent to school. Trick or Trunk will follow. Candy will be sent home in a sealed bag to be checked by parents/guardians. Costumes and trunks should be appropriate to our Catholic school environment.
Pre-K 3 will hold their Fall presentation on October 28 and Pre-K 4 will hold their event on October 29. Please see teachers’ websites for details.
Volunteers are needed for our Basket Raffle, which will be held on November 15. This is a wonderful evening to support our school, and I thank you for your continued support of our mission.
Our school, under the guidance of Ellen Ayoub, Diocesan Secretary of Education, is performing diagnostic studies on our continuous journey of improvement. We are evaluating School Quality Factors and the Domains Mission and Catholic Identity, Academic Excellence, Operational Vitality, and Governance and Leadership. Information gained from the surveys, which teachers, parents/stakeholders, and students participated in last school year, is used during our analysis.
Pray for us, O Queen of the most Holy Rosary, that we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.
God bless you,
Mrs. Ann Wierzbicki, R.N., M.A.E./Ed.S.
