Family Letter   November 2020

November reminds us to give thanks for the many wonderful things in our lives. Please take time, with your family, to give thanks for your own personal list. You are always invited and encouraged to pray, especially every weekend, for the many gifts in your lives that you are thankful for every day. You are welcome to send to the office photos of your loved ones that have passed away so we can display and pray for them the entire month of November. Please make sure to send them to school in an envelope with your child’s name and grade on the back to ensure we get them back to you.

As of November 2nd, ALL students in grades K-8 MUST be in the PROPER uniform each day. Your child is welcome to wear a SOLID color navy blue sweatshirt (No hoods) or sweater on Mondays, Thursdays and Fridays & on Tuesdays & Wednesdays a SOLID color red sweatshirt with their gym uniform. Outside coats and non-uniform jackets will NOT be allowed to be worn during the school day.

Annual Canned Food Drive—the food collected will go straight to Thanksgiving Basket Food Drive at the Quinn Center/Little Sisters of the Poor Collection (Kleenex & body wash)-those items will go to a nursing home in the Chicago area. The collection will begin on November 1st. Your generosity is very much appreciated to help those in need. It will run until Friday, November 20th .

Parent Teacher Conferences will be on November 13th. Please note that there will be an 11:15a.m. dismissal that day. (No after school Extended Day.) All conferences will be held by using ZOOM. You will need to be at a computer/laptop or cell phone when meeting with your child’s teacher. You will need to wait in the Zoom waiting room until the teacher lets you in. Each conference is 10 minutes.

I want to take this time to wish all of you a very Happy Thanksgiving! Thank you for giving all of us the opportunity to continue to serve you and your children here at Sacred Heart School. I would also like to let our faculty & staff know how grateful and thankful I am for all of the hard work and dedication they give to all of your children.
