A Message from Ms. B:
Something we noticed in the upper grades: The school issues all students a pair of headphones at the beginning of the year for classroom use. These headphones are often necessary for instruction and technology class, as the Junior High uses various online platforms and programs to enhance whole-class, in-person instruction. Recently we have seen a spike in the number of students without their headphones because they are lost or broken, resulting in an inability to complete an in-class assignment. Beginning next week, students who do not have their headphones will be given an alternate in-class assignment and be expected to complete the original assignment at home. Please check with your student to be sure he/she has this essential supply. If not, earbuds can often be found at the Dollar Store, the school has headphones available for purchase ($1), or students can bring in personal headphones or earbuds from home. Thank you for your continued support and attention to this matter.
This being Catholic Schools’ Week, it is a time to celebrate our privilege of learning about God in a Catholic school. We have activities and dress code changes, celebrating a special group in our Catholic school, each day. Be sure to read the pink Catholic Schools’ Week paper sent home on Friday.
