- Psalm 103:1-2
August is here. The teachers and I are getting in the “back to school” mode of thinking. We are preparing for classroom makeovers, move up day and more fun in the sun.
This month in chapel, the children will learn about how to thank God for the gift of summertime, God made under the sea creatures, God gave us treasures, God made the animals and God helps us keep our school clean.
Registration for the fall continues until classes are full. There are still a few spots left in each of our classrooms. If you are thinking about changing your child’s schedule, please let me know while I still have some flexibility.
Pizza fundraiser Tuesdays with Scarcella’s Pizzeria continues to be a success. If you missed ordering this week, there is still time for the remainder of the month. Fill out an order form on the wall next to the main parent board. Thanks!
Parent orientation is this Friday August 5th. Please attend one of the meetings. You may choose 9am-10am or 5pm-6pm. We will go over the parent handbook, vendor lunches, school supply list, talk about the curriculum, including the new items and activities we are adding to the program, fundraisers and more. You will have the opportunity to comment, ask questions and write down suggestions. Together we will continue to enhance your child’s learning environment.
Move up day is Monday August 8th. The children who will be moving up to the next classroom will be escorted by their teachers to their new classroom. We will start in the hall and go classroom by classroom. I will take pictures and post them on our facebook page.
This month our small playground will get a mini-makeover. We are planning to plant new sod, add some landscaping, check all sprinklers, and maybe plant a tree.
Monday, August 29th - Happy Birthday to Mrs. Wood! Stop by the Super Star classroom and wish her a happy day!
Miss Elizabee will be retiring this month after 11 years of dedicated teaching here at St. Thomas. Her husband is retired and wants to do some traveling…and he wants her to come along. What a great reason to retire! We love you Miss Elizabee and we will miss you! She will not be teaching every day, but wants to be our substitute teacher. We all agreed, so she will return occasionally to sub for us. We are very blessed!
- School is closed on Friday September 2nd for teacher C.P.R. and first aid training
- Looking ahead to September….Mark your calendars for our annual back to school night, Tuesday the 20th. We will start at 5:30 with a family pizza dinner. Then the children will enjoy participating in our optional programs while parents hear a presentation from the teacher in the classrooms. More information next month.
- You will receive a $50.00 tuition credit for each family that you refer to us. The family must enroll in the school for you to receive the credit.
- When signing your child in and out, please sign your full signature.
May God shower you with faith, hope and love.
Have a wonderful, warm month,
