Parent Memo 5/11/18
I can’t even say enough good things about our Spring Fine Arts program. It was fantastic and the kids really got a chance to show off their talents. I hope you got a chance to come and enjoy it.
PTO THANKS: Many thanks to the PTO and parents for providing lovely treats and recognitions to our teachers during this week’s national Teacher Appreciation Week. They were much appreciated by the faculty.
ACCREDITION SUMMARY REPORT: You will be able to view the summary report provided to us by the AdvancEd Accreditation Visiting Team starting next week. It clearly outlines their findings and highlights our strengths as well as our areas of improvements that we can include in our action plan for continuous school improvement. If you have a chance, take a look at it.
ARTOME WRAPUP: Are you still interested in purchasing your child’s framed masterpiece from the Spring Fine Arts Festival? It’s not too late!!!! You can still place your order for the framed artwork until Monday, May 14 at 3:00 pm. The cost is $37 each. If you have any questions, please contact Ms. College at [email protected].
ANNUAL MIDDLE SCHOOL SPORTS AWARDS BANQUET: Recognition of all the hard work our sports teams put in this year will be held on Thursday, May 17th at 6:00 pm in Kennedy Hall.
SUMMER BASKETBALL CAMP: St. Andrew’s University in Laurinburg, NC is hosting a Summer 2018 Girls Basketball Camp. The Fundamental Camp runs from June 10-13 and is open to students in grade 4 and up. You can register online at http://www.knightsbasketballcamps.com. The camp is not associated with St. Patrick School but we agreed to help them get the word out.
UNIFORM SHOE CHANGE FOR NEXT YEAR: I’ve received some inquiries regarding the type of shoes that can be worn next year. Therefore, I have included some links below that show the type of shoe that will meet the new dress code standard. By no means am I promoting a certain brand and you don’t have to buy only the shoes in the link, but just to help give a visual idea of what we are expecting. I searched
“black leather athletic shoe for kids” on Amazon in order to get the pics. The shoe can be any brand and lace up or Velcro closures, but solid black (including sole) and leather or leather-like. No canvas or cloth and no high tops are allowed. If the shoe has a tiny logo in color, then just take a black Sharpie and color it in. If you are not sure if the shoe is going to meet dress code, be on the safe side and email the picture to me for approval before buying it.
FIELD DAY is Tuesday, May 29th. If you are able to volunteer on this day, please email Mrs. Carroll at [email protected]. This will be the last opportunity to get your volunteer time. Students will need a bag lunch.
SANDHILLS FARM TO TABLE: Locally grown fruits and vegetables, breads, cakes and jellies are delivered directly to school for pickup on Thursday afternoons. This is a wonderful way to help our local farmers and keep you out of the grocery store so often. https://www.sandhillsfarm2table.com/home.php
SUMMER CAMP AT ST. PATRICK SCHOOL: Summer is coming, have you made plans for your children? Download an application at http://www.stpatschoolnc.org/wp-content/uploads/2018/04/Registration-Form-2018.pdf or pick one up in the school office.
