ACHIEVEMENT TESTING: The 3rd through 8th grade students will be doing Achievement testing next week, during the morning hours. These students will be provided a snack throughout the morning. However, as with any time, it is important for your student to get plenty of rest and eat a good breakfast each day.
PROGRESS REPORTS were available last week. Students in Grades K-2 receive a mid-term report and students’ reports in Grades 3-8 are to be viewed online at www.optionc.com, with our school code – 8085 – and your individual username and password. If you have not already done so, return the enclosed report/form on Monday. As always, if you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact the classroom teacher. If teachers have not received your form, they will contact you next week.
DONUTS WITH DAD! Dads – please mark your October calendar for the 12th. You can join your child at Mass at 8:00 am and then come on over to school for donuts and fellowship. Each class will have a short presentation for their dads. We should be finished up no later than 10:00 am. Hope to see all dads (or dad “subs”) here that Thursday!
MANY THANKS to Stacy Schrimpf – for keeping the bulletin board outside the offices current with her great artistic talent, and Emily Schulte – for lending her expertise during the health checks last week. We couldn’t do it without you!
FANTASY NIGHT: Work list sign ups were sent home last Friday. If you did not return yours, please contact the school office or Robyn Silvey to sign up. 23 or the 39 school families returned the sign up. It will take ALL SCHOOL FAMILIES to help with this event. The finalized work list will be sent home in next week’s folder. Also, please get out and sell those tickets! With fewer families this year we have to all kick in and do more.

If you need more tickets, contact one of the main ticket holders. Main ticket holders are: Mark Adrian, Monica Bittle, Ashley Groose, Ashley Kempker, Melissa Koetting, Shannon Lage, Mary’s Home Bank, and the school office.

NO MASS: There will be NO ALL SCHOOL MASS on Thursday, Oct. 5th. However, the students and staff will be participating in a Living Rosary, for the intention of Father Pat’s health, and this will be recorded and given to Father Pat to view. The students will be in full dress code, with no hoodies, jackets, etc., so that they look nice for the video.
VOLLEYBALL NEWS: The girls continue to play hard this season. Unfortunately, they took an overall loss last night against St. George. They did win their first set, 25-18, then lost their second and third, with the last set running out of time – a nail-biter – 19-21. So close! Go Lady Cougars!
