A Message from Ms. B:

A gentle reminder about school hours and tardiness. When a touring parent asks when we start school, I am clear to say that the doors open at 7:25am and many students arrive by 7:30am. I explain that some teachers start class at 7:30 because their students arrive and start immediately on their morning work (especially the “Littles”). We expect every student to be in their homeroom by 7:45am or they are considered tardy. We start the day by 7:50am with morning prayer together (led by our 8th graders). We understand that things “pop up” but it can be difficult for some students to “switch gears” in that short amount of time. Coats and lunchboxes put away, books are together, and the class changes. Things move quickly during the day and tardy students could find themselves trying to catch up all day. It can make instruction a challenge and could add to behavioral problems. Chronic tardiness can effect a student’s grades and/ or scholarship. Please try to avoid this and remember that if the cones are up in the parking lot at 7:45am, your student is already tardy.

There is a lot of information in this edition of Paw Prints: financial aid information, information from the Athletic Department, the Art Department, and opportunities to help around the parish and campus. As a Catholic and caring community, we have many resources that allow us to help each other and others within our community as well as in our city. Please take a moment to read through the various articles this week. Knowing that our students work hard, care deeply, and unite for common causes is a comfy feeling, like a warm blanket. I certainly hope that everyone has a restful Thanksgiving, taking time to be thankful for continued blessings.

Gobble Gobble,
Ms. B

A Message from Ms. B:

Covid has caused a number of changes in our school. Some changes are made for the safety, health, and well-being of students, staff, and family. Last year we needed to cancel our traditional Grandparent's Day due to a lack of ability to social distance. In years past, the church has been filled and we have had a robust attendance. While we know this is a popular event that we want to celebrate with everyone, we feel we cannot safely accommodate the many special people who want to spend time with their student. Our “Littles” have not all had the opportunity to experience this special day. We are carefully and safely planning a smaller version of Grandparents’ and Special Guest Day. The PTO and staff feel that Kindergartenthird grade students should have this great opportunity. PTO and the Primary are planning a few things that will allow the students to showcase their work, entertain their grandparent or special friend, and tour their classroom. We hope that you can understand our desire to share with our littlest Tigers, this wonderful event and know that we hope to celebrate Grandparents’ and Special Guest Day with every grade in the future. More information will be forthcoming for your families regarding this event. Since we are planning fall events, for the great Paw Print Challenge, your student can wear an orange, yellow, or red top or socks on Monday with uniform bottoms (no hoodies, please). Have a great weekend!
