Dear Parents and Guardians,
February is here!!! It’s a shorter month; still it is busy with events. We celebrate Black History Month this month. The children will continue to learn about the many prominent African Americans who have made outstanding contributions to our society.
Catholic School’s Week began on Jan. 31st and will continue until Fri. Feb 5th. An agenda was sent home highlighting the weeks activities. This year we will have a special treat for our families; the students will hold on Talent Show on Thursday Feb 4th and everyone is invited to attend. The show will begin at 1pm and “Goodwill Offerings” (any amount you would like to donate) will be accepted at the door. The show is going to be very entertaining so I hope many of you will be available to attend.
We will hold a very important parent meeting on Tuesday Feb 9th at 7pm in the gym. At this meeting we will discuss the scholarship and financial aid opportunities available to our families. We will also begin the re-registration process for Sept. 2016. The re-registration fee is currently $100.
** IF YOU RE-REGISTER AT THE MEETING YOU WILL RECEIVE A DISCOUNTED RATE AND PAY $75.00 —YOU MUST REGISTER AND PAY AT THE MEETING**
If you re-register any day after the meeting, the fee returns to the normal amount of $100. You save $25 and secure your child’s seat by attending the meeting and re-registering on the 9th. Faculty and Staff members will be on hand at the meeting to assist you with your application and to go over the financial aid application. Please make every effort to attend.
Ash Wednesday falls on Wednesday Feb 10th and we will attend Mass at 1pm in the church. The students will receive Ashes and everyone is invited to attend mass with us. Ash Wednesday begins the season of Lent; a time of prayer, repentance and sacrifice. The teachers will be working with the students to develop ways they can become more giving during this time.
Progress Reports will he handed out on February 11th. Please review the interim report with your child as the report gives a clear picture of your child’s progress and weaknesses.
On Friday Feb. 12th we will prepare to celebrate St. Valentine’s Day. The students will be permitted to dress down provided they wear something red.
School will be closed for Mid Winter’s Recess Monday Feb. 15th – Friday Feb. 18th. Please make adequate arrangements for your children during this time.
In closing I would like to remind and encourage all Catholics to attend mass regularly on Sunday. Parents please take the time out to accompany your children on Sundays. It’s a wonderful example and very necessary when forming children in the faith. Remember “The family that prays together: stays together”.
