The month of October is filled with fun and exciting activities for you and your child.
The Bible stories for October are; St. Francis, The Lord is my shepherd, Daniel and the lion’s den, The pumpkin Parable, and God wants us to have fun—Make believe is O.K.
Thanks to all the families who joined us for Back-To- School Night. It was a success. We heard a little bit about Father Tim and he led us in prayer. The teachers were very excited to meet with you and share information with you. If you liked the pizza we served, it was from Scarcella’s, the same company that brings us pizza on Tuesdays.
Please order scrip. Orders will now be due by Friday of each week. I will place orders on Monday mornings. We have already made over $100.00 profit, so keep those orders coming. You can order scrip for groceries, gas, the movies, star bucks, and restaurants. It really does help our school. Place orders and payments in the tuition box. Thanks!
This month Friday lunch will be Macaroni and Cheese. Place your order soon!
Thank you for continuing to bring in plastic water bottles and aluminum cans.
Trunk-or-Treat is scheduled for Tuesday October 31 at 10:30 am. Children may come to school in costume, nothing scary please. Teachers will bring their class out to the parking lot where YOU, the parents will open our trunk and give each child a treat. You may decorate your trunk as much as you like, add music if you wish. Treats may include stickers, stamps, and small items from the dollar store or homemade goodies. Thanks! This will be fun for our children. If this is not a regular school day for you, you may bring your child at 10:15 so they may join us for the festivities.
I have noticed that some parents who have good intentions and want to be helpful, have opened the entry door to strangers. I know and understand that you are just trying to be nice, however letting people into our school without a code kind of defeats the purpose of a keyless entry. Please if someone is trying to gain access just tell them that unless they have a code, they need to get permission from the director. Ask them to ring the doorbell or call the number on the door. Thank you for your help.
Teacher Birthdays this month are Miss Sandra 10/8 and Miss Linda 10/14… please stop in and wish them a happy day!

I have a form in my office for all parents to sign. It is in regards to the licensing visit we had a little while ago. No worries, licensing wants parents to be aware of the medication requirements here at school. There were 2 medications on site that were not properly labeled. (My fault for not catching it)The issue was corrected 24 hours after licensing noticed that the medicine was not in an original container. Please come in and sign the form in the next week. Thanks
