Family Letter March 2020

Lent is a time of prayer, fasting and almsgiving. Each child received a Rice Bowl to collect money for the 40 days of Lent. We ask that your child return the Rice Bowl on Monday, April 15th. Thank you for helping your child to help those in need. Also take time to look over the Lenten Calendar to follow the journey of the 40 days with sacrifices with your child.

The church is hosting free “Soup & Bread” every Friday during Lent at 6:30pm in the Marian Hall. There will be Stations of the Cross in English at 6pm & Spanish Stations of the Cross at 7pm in the church for all to attend. Our junior high students will be praying the Living Stations of the Cross on Good Friday, April 10th, at 3pm in church—please join us in prayer.

*Our School Family Mass will be on Saturday, March 28th at 4:30pm. Please invite your family and friends to join us. All of the sports players, volleyball-track and field-cross country-basketball-will be at this Mass.

*Enrollment is open for the 2020-2021 school year. Please make sure to return your completed BLUE Enrollment form and the enrollment fee to the office to secure your child’s spot in the class—please do not send the Book & Supply Fee/Technology Fee to the office—you will be billed through FACTS in August & September for both of those fees. FACTS Financial Aid & Grant is open online for families to apply for the 2020-2021 school year. Please remember that when you register your child/ren will be allowed to be out-of-uniform starting in March every Friday.

*The parish Women’s Club had hosted the Annual Spelling Bee for students in grades 4-8. Natalie in 8th grade took 1st Place and Brandon in 8th grade took 2nd Place—congratulations!

* Spring Picture Day:  If you would like for your children to pose together please fill out and return the form stating that you want them to take a sibling photo instead of individual photos—Dress Clothes Day–Wednesday, March 11th.

* Spring Conferences will be held March 13th from 1-4p.m. It is optional to meet with the teacher unless the teacher has requested a meeting.   Please be reminded that this meeting should be brief.  We will send your child’s report card home on that day.  There is an 11:15 dismissal for all students and NO Extended Day after school.

*All students in grades 3-8 will be taking the ACT Aspire Test the week of March 30th –April 3rd.  Please make sure that your child is on time each day that week since testing begins right away. (Students will need #2 pencils—no lead pencils allowed per ACT Aspire.)

Blessings to you,

Principal – Barbara Ciconte
