MRS.TENER's NEwslettersNews & Announcements
My apologies for such a short notice today regarding the pivot to a snow day. I felt it was our responsibility to help conserve energy. I’m sure your children were not disappointed! I am concerned that our text system did not work. I never received the text myself. And I know that several teachers did not receive it either. I am sure it is tied to the weather or electricity somewhere.
Congratulations to our second graders who received the Sacrament of Reconciliation for the first time yesterday. We are so happy for you.
Valentine party day is always exciting and fun. Monday is the Archdiocesan teacher’s in-service. Our faculty will be in a Zoom meeting most of the day on Monday. I am not sure what Tuesday holds but if it is even half of what the weathermen are saying, we will be off campus for several days.
The students seem to be enjoying our modified Catholic Schools Week celebration. Tomorrow is dress uniform. Friday is the day to wear flannel. While kindergarten and preschool have permission to wear pajamas, the older students are only wearing an item of flannel. We do not want 1st- 8th grade in full pajamas. They can wear flannel pants with a sweatshirt or t-shirt. They can wear a flannel shirt with jeans. The stewardship drive for Willow Pregnancy Center (formerly Birthchoice) is going well.
We are looking forward to having our five classes return next week in time to celebrate Catholic Schools Week. (See the box below for out of uniform details.) We are conducting a monetary stewardship drive to donate to Willow Pregnancy Center (formerly Birthchoice). As the principal I am issuing a challenge to each class to raise $100. If a class raises $100, a class rep will get to put a pie in the face of the teacher selected from the volunteer pie-receiving teachers.
