Dear Parents and Friends,
Once again we had a wonderful turnout for Open House earlier this week. I am very proud our school staff and trust that you will also find them excellent and responsive to your children’s needs.
Those middle school students who have turned in all forms and funds necessary will be issued a Chromebook on today, Friday. If you were unable to attend the mandatory meeting, please call the school office to arrange a meeting with me to review the Chromebook Contract and responsibilities of school and family regarding the devices.
We are very pleased to be adding students to our preschool program. We have openings in both the 3 and 4/5 year old classes and continue to offer an incentive for families who refer new students to St. Catherine School. Call the school office for more information.
As I reminded you last week, we are continuing our sale of SUDZ Car Wash (located in Lihue) tickets. These $12 value tickets are on sale in the school office for $10 each. These are a great value and SUDZ does a great job on our cars!
Our first PTG meeting of the school year will be held next Tuesday, August 26 in the fifth grade classroom. Thank you to Ms. Slimko for hosting this month’s meeting! This year each PTG meeting will be held in a classroom so that parents have the opportunity to see what students are up to. In an attempt to include more parents in PTG operations, meetings will alternate between evening (6:30 pm) and daytime (2:30 pm).
The Cub Scouts will hold their parent meeting for anyone interested in including their son (grades 1 – 5) in the Cub Scout Troop that meets at St. Catherine’s Coyle Hall. This initial meeting will be held on Thursday, August 28 at 7 pm in the fourth grade classroom. Stay tuned for information on Girl Scouts!
Ms. Slimko is raising funds for literature sets to supplement our reading program in the fifth grade. On Friday, August 29 fifth grade parents will hold a “Banana Split” sale after school at Coyle Hall. Support fifth grade literacy and cool off with ice cream!
Remember that Monday, September 1 is Labor Day. It also marks our half way point in the first quarter.
