A Message from Ms. B:
The last days of summer…beautiful weather, festival is finished, rested and excited for the new year. And as I slipped into a summer slumber on the patio, I was suddenly filled with an overwhelming sense of panic: Oh My Goodness! We start school so soon. Next week: August 25! I decided to go through my mental checklist:
Is the handbook updated? Yes! The dress code has new parts that are clearly specified (check out pg. 40). The handbook has been uploaded to the website: https://school.lourdes.org.
School supplies, do I have all of them? I am sure I have plenty but if I need to refer to my list, I can l look online: https:// school.lourdes.org . Thank goodness the teachers will make sure their students have what they need and can remind parents at Meet the Teacher on Tuesday from 4:30-7:30. Maybe I can meet with the new school nurse, Nurse Jessica Hinton (or Nurse Jess as I have already started calling her!) and tell her about the various ailments some of our students experience.
Schedules for the upper grades? Mrs. King and I are working on them and getting them ready to pass out the first day in homeroom.
Uniforms? What if they are too short? Better get online and purchase some more. I hope that Tommy H is having a sale: Flash Sale: 15% OFF YOUR ORDER; CODE: 1508FLSL08. I would hate to have to tell a student she would have to go home and change if she didn’t come dressed appropriately! I hope the used uniform sale will be available during Meet the Teacher.
What about the Spiritwear I ordered? I can pick up at the cookout on Sunday. But if I need more, I may have to check out the Spirit Shop or email Lindsay Jones for more info: LJones_2012@outlook.com
Wait, the Cookout for Lourdes’ families, especially our new families and Kindergarten families…This is a HUGE event that we are starting this year, a new tradition. In the cafe lot Sunday August 21 at 4:00. It’s going to be amazing and I cannot wait to see all of our Tiger Families!! What should I bring?! Tiger Bark? Tiger striped cookies? Hmmm…
How will new parents know about transportation? In the handbook, we have detailed instructions (pg. 12) and maps in the appendix. Or Mrs. Beth DiTullio knows…she also knows about bussing and what to do! firstname.lastname@example.org
Sleep schedule? What schedule? Well, it makes sense to start working on it now. I guess my husband, Coach Dude better set the alarm for 4:30 am. Better make it 5:30 and ease my way into the year. I hope the students start working on it too; we don’t want anyone falling asleep in class! But I’m still staying up late (I have to catch up on the headlines from the 10pm news.)
Summer Reading and Math? Well, I’ve read several books but didn’t do all of my math. Guess I better email my teachers to find out how behind I am! 7A and 8th English:Mrs. Huwel at email@example.com or 7B: Mrs. Kissinger at firstname.lastname@example.org. For 7B and 8th Math: Ms. Eichhold at email@example.com or 7A Math: Ms. Riegler at firstname.lastname@example.org
I am excited about this year, there is a vibe in the building and with the staff. Things are changing but we
