Dear Parents and Guardians,
I have included the schedule for Catholic Schools’ Week on our website. Parents and guests are invited to attend the opening prayer service on Monday, January 30th as well as to the National Junior Honor Society induction ceremony, the Christopher Widjaja Spelling Bee and the Middle School STEM Fair on Thursday, February 2nd. All are welcome to attend the Religion Bee and Mass on Friday, February 3rd, as well. We still need parents to to speak at our career day and/or the masses on Saturday, January 28th and 29th. We have a number of slots still open. If you would like to help, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Congratulations to our amazing eighth graders for their strong Co-op exam scores. Over the next few days they will receive their high school acceptances and we wish them well as they prepare for this next step on their educational journey!
Prep Connection is up and running and just like our eighth graders, some of our friends from St. Peters are learning about the options they will have as they prepare for the next stop on their own educational journeys. Acceptances from schools like Boston College, Notre Dame and MIT have already been received, with more to come. We are so blessed to have these exceptional young men volunteer their time to work with our students each week and I thank the Ignation Scholars Advisor and Assistant Dean of Students, Mr. Juan Arteaga and the program’s chaperone, Dr. Michael Holt, for making this program possible.
There will be an important item added to the February calendar. We will have our K-8 parent/teacher conferences on Monday, February 13, 2017 from 6:00-8:30PM and Tuesday, February 14, 2017 from 1:00-3:00PM. There will be a half-day for the entire school that day. After care will be available. Scheduling information will be sent home by the teachers in advance of the conference dates. The Pre-K conferences scheduled for February 7th from 3:00-6:00PM remain unchanged.
Poker Night is two weeks away! The packets have been sent home and are posted on our website. The evening is a lot of fun and has grown each year since its inception four years ago. Even if you don’t choose to play cards or craps you can still enjoy a good time with friends. Please join us if you are able.
One final thought-pitchers and catchers report to spring training in less than five weeks! Spring can’t be far behind.
God bless you all and thanks for sharing your beautiful children with us!
