SKETCH DAY: Congratulations to the students attending Sketch Day at the Capitol last Tuesday – they did a wonderful job on their sketches! Special recognition to Emily Love, who took 2nd place in the charcoal/pencil division, and to Hannah Evers, who received Honorable Mention in the same category. We also recognize the other students who received ribbons of participation - Kayla Bond, Alex Evers, Devin Haeffner, Elizabeth Kliethermes, Ava Puckett, & Justin Schrimpf. We are proud of you ALL!
THURSDAY is Ascension Thursday, a Holy Day of Obligation. ALONG WITH THE STUDENTS, ALL SCHOOL STAFF WILL BE ATTENDING MASS THAT MORNING. IF YOU BRING YOUR CHILD TO SCHOOL AFTER 7:45, PLEASE BRING HIM/HER DIRECTLY TO CHURCH.
FEES OWED: As we approach the end of the year, we would like to remind all families that final grade cards will only be issued to students whose fees are paid in full. This includes, but is not limited to, sustaining fees, lost library book fees, preschool &/or extended care fees, school support/tithing, lunch fees, rule violation fees, lost textbook fees, etc. FINAL FEE NOTICES WILL BE SENT HOME NEXT FRIDAY.
READING COUNTS: If your child earned 200 points by April 22, field trip packets are in today’s folder. PLEASE TAKE THE TIME TO FILL THESE FORMS OUT COMPLETELY AND ATTACH THE $5 PAYMENT. Please be considerate of the driving arrangements. Friends may not get to ride with friends. It was a BIG job to get this all organized, and consider that it’s less than an hour trip and it is a wonderful opportunity to make new connections!
STUDENTS NOT ATTENDING THE TRIP: This will be a normal day of school for those not attending. Students not attending will be held accountable for all assignments that day, even if they earned the 200 points and choose not to go.
LIBRARY BOOKS: The last day to check out books was Tuesday, April 26th. All books need to be turned in to the library by Tuesday, May 3rd. Thanks so much to Debbie Schulte, Dianne Goetz, and Christina Eickhoff for all their hard work and volunteer hours in our library this year.
