Shopping Showcase Extravaganza

families still like to place an order.
* Every family is REQUIRED to either opt-out
for $100 or place an order for at least $200. This is PER FAMILY (not per child!).
Clubs and Sports

All parents are asked to have their cell phones nearby and turned on during the school day. This is just in case of an emergency or unplanned early dismissal. Please be certain that you have a contingency plan for pick up for your child on such days and that your child knows what it is.
Communication and School News

Security is important to all of us. If you are visiting our school at any time, please be certain that you check in with the security guard or come into the school office to sign in and get a visitor's pass before going to the classroom.

Second Grade Parent Reminder
Attention second grade parents! Please remember to contact your parish to register your child for the sacraments of Reconciliation and First Communion. Sacramental preparation is done at your home parish according to Diocesan policy.
Parking Lot Safety Reminders
Please obey the parking pattern and speed limit when driving through the back parking lot at dismissal. Please park in a legal space and obey the cones, the chains and the "No Parking" signs. The teachers dismiss the children from the school building directly to you. Please work with us as we strive to maintain a safe environment for all students.
Remember: When you drop off in the morning, drive all the way down to the last teacher. Be sure that your child exits the vehicle curbside. All Kindergarten through grade 8 students need to be dropped off at the front door.
