Middle School Career Fair This Friday
The All Saints Middle School Career Fair is scheduled for Friday, November 11th, from 9:30AM-11:00AM. This will undoubtedly be a rewarding experience for the students. Many of our students are unaware of the career opportunities available to them and this is a great way to provide them with first-hand knowledge of potential career paths. The goal for our students is to learn about a wide variety of career opportunities and how to pursue careers in the fields of the greatest interest to them. Events like these have a strong, lasting, and positive impact on middle school students.
Report Cards and Conferences Next Week
Parent -Teacher Conferences will be held on Nov 16-17.  There will be early dismissal on both days.  Evening conferences are available on Wednesday, November 16 only.  The after school program will be held as usual.

Report cards will be distributed on November 16-17 at Parent Teacher Conferences.  Tuition needs to be current for your child to receive a report card.  This includes July, August, September and October's tuition payments . All After School Program balances must also be paid in full.  Your timely payments are necessary for the school to meet its financial obligation.
 
The MSP Parent Portal for grades 5-8 is closed while  teachers prepare report cards for distribution. The portal will be open again on November 18.
