Welcome back to a new school year! I hope that the students are excited to be back with their their friends and teachers! With school starting on Monday I wanted to take this time to provide a few reminders and updates so that everyone feels prepared for the first day.
As many of you know I had a baby on Tuesday! So I also wanted to share a cute picture and updates on her! Baby Announcement
I will be out for the first few weeks of school, but I will still be working from home as needed and will be available by phone or email should you have any concerns.
Every Thursday all students 3K-5th grade are expected to wear our red polo uniform shirts to school with dress pants or a skirt. We have had many families give us outgrown shirts from prior students so we have these available in the school office so families do not need to go purchase them. Please speak with Deb in the office and let her know what size you need!
Hot Lunch Program
We offer a hot lunch program everyday to all students. There is a hot lunch option as well as a cold sandwich option each day. The hot lunch menu was provided in your packet of information given on Back to School Night. Please remember that this is a prepaid program and that families need to keep a positive balance in this account. You can pay using cash, check, or online through our Vanco system. If you have any questions regarding our hot lunch program please call the school office.
Monday, August 30th is our first day of school and students are expected to be at school by 7:45am. We will be participating in a school-wide prayer service with Father Mark outside in Mary's Garden at 8:15am. Following the prayer service students will be gathering for an assembly to kick off the year. Students are able to wear shorts, just please be sure that they are school appropriate and do not have any rips or holes.
The teachers and I are so excited to welcome students back to school in a few weeks! Teachers begin the year on August 23rd and will be working hard to get the school and classrooms ready! The school office will be open from 9-12pm every day and you are welcome to call or stop in if you need anything!
We felt that it would be great to enter into this year with a theme to help us focus on throughout the year and to ensure that we are keeping Christ at the forefront of everything we do.
Anchored In Christ.
Explore. Dream. Discover.
Students will be working on diving deeper into this theme and what it means to them and to our school community. On the first day, students will be creating posters on what this theme represents for them. We will share these on Facebook and in the newsletter once they are complete!
Back to School Night is Wednesday August 25th from 4-6pm.
Students should bring all of their school supplies and be dressed for getting their school picture taken. Teachers will be available to answer any questions that you might have before school starts. Deb will be there handing out back to school packets to everyone who attends. Please be sure that you fill out those forms as soon as possible so that the office has all of the necessary information. Following getting their pictures taken, students are encouraged to participate in outdoor activities that will be available. We will have chalk, jump ropes, hula-hoops, and a kickball game. There will also be ice-pops for the students to enjoy! We are excited for all of our families to get together before the start of the year!
