Parent Memo 1/10/20
PARENT MEMO Friday, January 10, 2020
It was great to welcome the kids back to school!!! The Shout-Out’s for this week go to:
Grace-Gardner Boliek (gr 8): During the Living Rosary presentation, GG was a huge help behind the scenes. She eagerly made sure all of the KG students had their props and helped to make sure they were positioned correctly before coming out of the chapel.
PROGRESS REPORTS FOR 2nd TRIMESTER:
Please note that Progress Reports for the 2nd trimester will be completed as of Monday, January 13th. Please take time to review your child’s progress with him/her. Ideally, you are reviewing the progress weekly or even daily to assist your child in staying on track, so the progress report should not be any kind of surprise. Teachers are available for conferences as needed. Just contact the office to set up an appointment. Please refrain from “popping in” or trying to grab the teacher in the parking lot. I ask you to imagine doing this to your doctor, or to your lawyer, or to any other professional. It would be unacceptable, so respect their profession and please make an appointment. They will set appointments at their earliest convenience to take care of your needs.
SAVE THE DATE
Hold onto MARCH 14th as the ST PATRICK’S SCHOOL FUN RUN! This is our biggest PTO sponsored event of the year, so please plan to attend. Tell all your friends, relatives, gym buddies, fellow racers….anybody you know who likes to run. IT IS AN OFFICIALLY TIMED EVENT and a great warm-up prep for the famous All American Run which takes place two weeks after ours. We will be sending more information home soon and flyers for you to post at your places of work, your gyms, your running clubs…anywhere that people could see about it. This is a great way to get your volunteer hours in as well. Don’t wait until the last minute to fulfill them as opportunities will be drawing to a close. For now, please save the date and spread the word!!!!
PTO is having a Run Committee/ Run Volunteer meeting on Tuesday, January 14th at 9:30 am and at 6:30 pm. If you are interested in helping out this year with the St. Patrick’s Fun Run please sign up to attend a meeting by clicking on the following link.
AMAZON SMILE PROGRAM
Please see the flyer below to support the school with your Amazon purchases. If you shop through Amazon, sign up for an AMAZON SMILE account. It doesn’t change anything about your account other than a portion of your sales is donated to the school. I signed up right away, and I already have money in my donation account. I’m a Prime user but it doesn’t change anything about that. All I have to remember to do is log in to smile.amazon.com instead of the regular Amazon. Everything else runs as usual. Please do this as it’s a way to support the school that is FREE TO YOU!!!! See the flyer below with details on how to enroll.
