Dear Parents and Friends,
Last Friday we enjoyed our annual Spring Show with students singing Hawaiian songs in beautiful harmony! I was impressed and moved by the strength and purity of our children’s voices. CDs of the show are still available through the school office.
Yearbooks have arrived! Order forms are going home today and yearbooks will be distributed on Thursday, May 29. Students are encouraged to bring their books to the yearbook signing party on Friday afternoon, May 30.
This year’s Walking School Bus was a great success. Meadow Gold provided (free of charge) cartons of milk for all our walkers each month. Next Wednesday, during morning announcements, Mrs. Toni McCartney and Mrs. Chevelle Montalbo who have supported the Walking School Bus will present awards and prizes to our walkers.
On Wednesday, May 27 at 8:30 am, Sergeant Rod Green will make a presentation to our students on Cyber safety based on a Powerpoint presentation from the Attorney General’s office. Parents are invited to attend.
Next Friday from 8:30 am to 9:30 am our third through fifth graders will present the culmination of their Marketplace project. More than 30 student businesses will be selling their wares to fellow students who have been earning SCS Bucks through the quarter. Parents are encouraged to attend and see their burgeoning entrepreneurs at work.
Next week is the last for the Graduating class of 2015. They will have a class retreat led by Fr. Anthony on Tuesday and a class activity on Thursday. Their graduation ceremony will be held on Saturday immediately following the 5 pm mass at St. Catherine Church. I encourage all our families to attend and support our graduates.
We continue to accept application for new students to St. Catherine School. Sharing your experience at St. Catherine School with friends is the best advertising we can get. You will receive a $300 tuition discount for the referral when they register.
Please see the back of this letter for exciting news about next year’s school program!
