August 25th Newsletter

Dear Parent(s)/Guardian(s):

For better or worse, and I imagine for all parents it is for the better, it is that time, as the school year will begin this Monday.  Below you will find a few items that have been brought to my attention that I hope to address as the school year starts.  Please remember that if you have any questions, comments, or concerns, please feel free to bring them to my attention.  With the full transition of the Junior High and other changes around the building we want to ensure everyone is on the same page and all questions answered.

Weekly Calender

Until we have worked the technical bugs out of our Junior High/High School Calender on our website I will be attaching a weekly schedule to each Newsletter.  If you have any questions please feel free to contact the Junior High/High School Office.
Homecoming Guidelines
Below you will find the new Homecoming Dress and Conduct Guidelines for this school year.  These guidelines are very similar to those of Prom, with a few exceptions, due to the more informal nature of Homecoming, compared to Prom.  However, this event is still a school sponsored event and should reflect the morals and values represented by our Catholic Faith.  If you have any questions or concerns about the guidelines please let me know and I will be happy to help in anyway I can.

Bringing Students Food After School
Parents bringing students food after school, before an event or the like.  Please encourage your student to pack a snack or a second lunch before their contest or meet, to eat after school.  Due to the new Parent-Pick for the Elementary you will be unable to park behind school to bring your student food, and the East Lot will be occupied by Staff, which will not allow for ample parking for parents to drop-off food.    At the same time, we will be unable to hold that food in the office, as we cannot have Mrs. Clark, myself, or other staff members responsible for watching food for students.

Picking Up Students After School

If you have a Student in the Elementary please follow the Policy below.  As you will be assigned a lane that your Junior High or High School Student will need to know in order to be picked-up from school.  Please remember that your Junior High or High School student will not be dismissed at the same time as the Elementary, due to announcements taking place at 2:58 and the dismissal bell ringing at 3:00.  We do not want your Junior High or High School Student missing any unnecessary class time or information at the end of the day, so they will not be dismissed early.

If you do not have a student in the Elementary these are some options for you for pick up.  After 3:05, you can use the Elementary Pick-Up Lanes on the South Side of School, as at those times the late car-pool drivers will be pulling in. (It is outlined in the policy attached below)  You can use the Visitor Parking Spots in the East End Parking Lot, the Parking Spaces along Second Street, or pick-up your Junior High/High School student at Second Street doors of the Junior High School.

Comedy Night
Below you will find a flyer for the Comedy Night, presented by the Athletic Boosters.  Please pass this information along to everyone you know to encourage as much participation as possible.  The proceeds of this event help to benefit all of our athletic programs.  Thank you for your continued support.

Little Caesars Pizza Sales
Order forms for the Little Caesars Pizza Sale will be going home next week.  As a reminder the Junior High, for every $100 worth of product they sell the more chances they have to be entered into a drawing for tuition money, in amounts of $250, $150, or $100.  The High School, for every $100 worth of product they sell the more chances they have to be entered into a drawing for gas and/or food cards in the amount of $100 (2 winners) to $50 (4 winners).
