From the Principal

Dear Parents,

What a busy couple of weeks! We hope you had a great Thanksgiving holiday with many blessings and lots of time with family and friends. We had so much fun with Grandparents/Special Persons Day. We also hope you received some good information from your child’s teacher during Parent/Teacher Conferences.

Report cards are available for all students today!   4K report cards are available on the Infinite Campus site.  ECE has paper report cards that will come home with ECE students in their green folder today.  K-8 can access report cards on the Teacher Ease system. Look for a “Welcome Email” from Teacher Ease, and log in to your account to view report cards.

As Catholics, we recognize the season of Advent preparing ourselves for Christ’s birth. Our 2nd Advent prayer service will be Wednesday, December 11th at 8:30 AM in Marian Hall, led by the 3rd and 5th grades. The prayer services will be held weekly throughout Advent. Join us for any of these celebrations during Advent.

CORRECT & REVISED INFORMATION: The School Christmas Concerts are coming up! ECE & 4K will have a concert themselves on Dec. 16th at 11:15, K-2 will be Dec. 19th at 5:30, and 3-8 will be that same day at 6:30.  All of the concerts are in the school Gym. Students can dress in Christmas outfits, preferably in Green or Red, or their uniform polo shirts. Please do not feel the need to go out and buy anything special for your child to wear during the concert. The Christmas concerts are always such a nice way to celebrate the season with our children and the community!

Catholic Schools provide a firm foundation for the growth and development of your child. Pray for a year filled with faith and learning. Let us be a community of service to one another and to our world.
Callie Meiller, Principal
