Parent Memo: March 12, 2021

PRINCIPAL’S CORNER:

I am proud to announce this week’s Shout-Outs to:

Amanda Mason – gr 8 – Amanda came to the rescue of Mrs. Shea when Mrs. Shea could not reach an area she was attempting to decorate with Lenten streamers. Amanda helped Mrs. Shea put up all the streamers which made Mrs. Shea’s job so much easier. Mrs. Shea greatly appreciated Amanda’s help.

In Service,

Ms. Laura

SPRING BOOK FAIR SUCCESS AND THANKS

Thank you to all who participated in our Spring Book Fair. It was a great success and raised over $1000 for books and resources for our library program.

 

ST PATRICK’S DAY 5K Run/Walk/Roll Virtual Race and ST PATRICK’S DAY CELEBRATION

Please note the paperwork that was sent home regarding our Virtual Race this year. In addition to promoting family health and fun, this race will raise money for PE and recess equipment that always seems to wear out quickly. Please refer to the flyer below for details of the race and thank you for your participation.

 

We will celebrate St Patrick’s Day differently than in years past, of course. The children have been working on activities in their PE classes, and we have been making a virtual presentation that will be emailed to all parents. The students will view this presentation in their classes on St Patrick’s Day and will have a little celebration. Store-bought goods or pre-packaged goods can be sent into your students’ class for the celebration. Please no home-baked goods can be accepted. Please refer to each child’s class teacher for details as different age groups have different requirements. There will be a “go green” dress down day on March 17th where they can dress in green! Please refer to the dress down guidelines below when determining what your child can wear.

DRESS DOWN GUIDELINES

  • All clothing must display only school-appropriate pictures, symbols and language.
  • All shirts and t-shirts must be of modest style and coverage (no tank tops, and no exposed midriffs, waists, hips, or undergarments)
  • All shorts and skirts must be of modest length and coverage (no more than 2 inches above the knee) Jeans should not be torn, overly faded or excessively worn.
  • Athletic shoes and leather shoes may be worn (no flip flops, sandals or boots)
  • No leggings may be worn unless they are under a dress or skirt that complies with dress code guidelines for length. (so basically, leggings worn as tights under clothes and not as pants)

LENTEN ALMSGIVING

Thank you to the families that have already sent in diapers and baby wipes for our Lenten Outreach Project. This outreach will continue until March 26th. Students can bring in packs of diapers and baby wipes to their classes. Teachers will collect them and make sure they get to their destination. If you prefer to send in a $5 donation instead of (or in addition to) the products, this is always appreciated and will be used to purchase additional diapers and wipes. (see flyer attached to end of newsletter)

 

 

FINANCIAL AID FOR 2021-2022

If you are requesting tuition assistance from the school/parish for the 2021-2022 school year (not the Opportunity Scholarship), please do so through your FACTS tuition management account. Parish financial assistance is open to active members of St Patrick Catholic parish only.

 

OPERATION RICE BOWL

Operation Rice Bowl is a donation drive that has been carried out in Catholic parishes and schools for years during Lent. It will begin soon in our parish and school. Donations to Rice Bowl help the hungry, both in our local community and beyond. 25% of the donations to Rice Bowl stay in our own community, and there is certainly a need during this time. Please use the link to donate to Rice Bowl online or see the flyer attached below about how to donate using the QR code. Thank you for your prayerful donation during the Lenten season.
