Good evening parents and guardians, this is Mrs. Benson with what will be your final school blast for the 2016-17 school year. This time I really mean it.
I inadvertently gave the wrong date for the first day of school in last Sunday’s evening blast. Please note the first day of school for the 2017-18 school year will be Tuesday, August 22. This will be a minimum day with all other days that week being full days.
Pre-K will celebrate their graduation tomorrow, Thursday, June 22 at 9 a.m. in the gym. All Pre-K students must be in the Pre-K classroom by 8:30 a.m. Please note that if your Pre-K student has a sibling in our school, they may attend the graduation ceremony only. Immediately following the graduation ceremony siblings are to return to class. All siblings are expected to be in their school uniform.
Friday, June 23 will be our last day of school for the 2016-17 school year. We will attend Mass at 8 a.m. and our End of the Year Awards Ceremony will take place immediately following Mass. This will be a minimum day with no day care provided. Please make sure you have made arrangements to pick up your child by 12:40 p.m. Thank you!
All accounts for the 2016-17 school year must be paid in full by Friday, June 30. This includes paying for volunteer hours not served. Those families who have not taken care of their account jeopardize their student’s enrollment next year. The school office will be open June 26 to June 30 from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. The school office will also be open July 3 and July 5 to July 7 from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. The school office will be closed Tuesday, July 4 in honor of our nation’s birthday, the Fourth of July.
I wish you all a fun filled and safe summer!
Thank you, have a great rest of the week, and God bless.
