St. Bartholomew Catholic Academy
Dear Parents and Guardians,
“Happy New Year!” We begin the year with a fresh start and a positive outlook for the months ahead. We know how hectic the past few weeks have been so for this month only, Tuition will be due on Monday January 9th. There will be no late fees for payments received by the 9th. Late fees will apply after January 9th. We hope this small gesture helps you. We know it’s a great sacrifice sending your children here and we greatly appreciate your confidence in our Academy.
As we start the New Year, let’s be mindful of good habits. It should be the primary goal to send your children to school on time every day. Unfortunately, too many students arrive late for school. This is detrimental for both the late student and the class disrupted by late arrivals. The bell rings at 8:10am and if your child is not in the gym and on line with the class, he/she is late. All late students must receive a late pass prior to entering the classroom. Lateness is habitual and it must be corrected or it will be a lifelong problem for your child. Make this a New Year’s Resolution: ALWAYS BE ON TIME!!
Please pay close attention to the calendar as we have a number of important events planned especially for our 8th grade students.
**We will begin a Candy Sale on January 13th and it will by request only. We will send more detailed information prior to the sale. It’s our students. The sale will end on January 31st and we thank you in advance for your participation.
School is closed on Monday January 16th as we celebrate Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Dr. King was a great civil rights leader whose “non-violent” methods made it possible for many of us to attend the school that we do today!
Catholic Schools week begins on Sunday January 29st and we will open the week by attending Mass at 10am in the Church. Immediately following mass, we will have an open house in the school. The open house gives prospective students and families an opportunity to tour the school and meet with students, faculty and staff.
The open house will begin at 11:30 and end at 1pm. Please tell your family, friends and neighbors.
Please note registration for new students begins Monday January 30, 2017.
