Dear Parents and Guardians,

I hope that you are enjoying the start of summer with your families. As we prepare to welcome the annual St. Ann’s Feast to our corner, there are a couple of things I want to bring to your attention:

1. Lands End is online for school uniforms. The website for ordering is: http://www.landsend.com/pp/SchoolSearch.html?action=landing&selectedSchoolNum=900176348. Please note that if you order uniforms through the Scrip program, our school will receive 16% of the cost from Lands End! To learn how to take part in the Scrip program, please contact: hca.scrip@gmail.com. Please remember that if you prefer, uniforms can still be purchased through Lobels and Flynn and O’Hara as you have done in the past.

2. There have been some revisions to the annual calendar, which is now on our website. The changes are in bold. Please discard the preliminary calendar sent to you previously. Please note that two additional half days have been added to support teacher workshops in the afternoon on those days. Several snow days have been built into the calendar. If we need to add additional days we will have school on Holy Thursday and/or the Friday of Memorial Day weekend. We will not add days in June unless we have a particularly bad winter and exceed the built-in and additional days indicated above. If we have a mild winter and do not need to use the days built into the calendar, we will extend Easter break to include Wednesday 4/12/17, and/or Memorial Day weekend, to include Ascension Thursday on 5/25/17. Again, the last day of school, which is now, June 19th will remain the same. Finally, you will note that following the Baccalaureate Mass on June 16th, the entire school will congratulate our graduates through a “Clap-out,” in our gym. This ceremony involves students in grades 1-7 lining either side of the gym, cheering for our eighth graders as they make their way through the gym and out of the school for the last time. The ceremony is quite special and this coming year we will invite our graduates’ parents to be on hand for the moving send-off.

3. Work on the final phase of our air conditioning project is set to begin next week, following St. Ann’s Feast. In addition, our gym floor will be screened and recoated, next week as well.

4. The HCA school office will be closed during the days of the St. Ann’s Feast, July 21-26.

Thanks for your attention and enjoy the summer.
