IMPORTANT REMINDERS! Now that we've made it through our first full week, a few reminders about Drop Off and Pick Up:

Students should report to the cafeteria if they arrive prior to 7:45 am. There is a staff member on duty to be with the students.

There are student "Safety Patrol" leaders who are on the sidewalks to assist in directing students as needed.

Parents (Grades K - 8) should not be waiting in front of the buildings with their children or walking them into the classrooms in the mornings. This is an IMPORTANT TIME for teachers to work with the students in getting them ready for the day. If you need to speak to a teacher, please email or call them for an appointment.

While this shouldn't be an issue, please NEVER leave a younger child unattended in your vehicle while walking to your child's classroom. This is an important safety concern.

Please remain in your car and do not gather outside of your child's classroom in the afternoon. The children will be directed to you in an organized fashion. Individuals standing outside the classrooms and talking, or gathered in the parking lot in groups, interfere with the flow of dismissal.

Please follow the instructions of our teachers and student leaders who are assigned to parking lot duty at dismissal. There is a specific manner to dismissal and it is greatly disrupted if individuals choose not to follow the rules.

Please let us know if you have a specific concern and refer to your student handbook if you have questions regarding drop off and pick up.

ACCELERATED READER The first out-of-uniform day for the halfway point of the first quarter is Wed., Sept. 13. To qualify, students need to have earned at least half of their AR points for the quarter by the end of the day on Wed., Sept. 6. There will be another out-of-uniform day after the end of the first quarter for students who have met or exceeded their AR goals.

ALTAR SOCIETY The Altar Society is URGENTLY looking for volunteers to clean the church on Saturdays. If you volunteer, you are typically scheduled on a team that gathers about once every six weeks. With many hands, the work is light and takes just a couple of hours. Please email Mona Bombassi, RBombassi@unum.com, if you can help. PIP hours are given for this valuable service that helps us keep our parish and school church a beautiful place to worship.
