Welcome to another great year at St. Victor School!  I hope this letter finds you enjoying all the great things that summer can offer us all!

We have a new school theme this year:  The Power of You! The Power to Do!  We all are working hard to create a positive growth mindset and focus ourselves on all the things we can DO to make ourselves a better student but also a better person in our community and world.  We hope to accomplish this positive growth mindset by also incorporating the Fruits of the Holy Spirit:  Love, Joy, Peace, Patience, Kindness, Goodness, Faithfulness, Gentleness and Self-Control.  By taking time this year to focus on these wonderful traits we will be creating an amazing community of learners and disciples. 

Fee Days:  We again will have some time for you before Meet the Teacher to drop off your paperwork and get lunch, milk, snack, and tuition fees paid before the school year begins.  The dates for this will be from 7:30-3:30 on August 13-14-15. We hope that you all will take advantage of this opportunity.

Meet the Teacher: This year our Meet the Teacher will have a bit of a different look. It will take place on Thursday, August 29 from 5:00-7:00.  This night will be the evening to drop off your child’s supplies, but also each teacher in grades K-5th grade will be doing a short orientation parent meeting. This allows you and your child to get some important information from your teacher as we embark on another great year of learning!  4K will only be doing the dropping off of  materials and meeting of the teacher.  A separate orientation night will be coming after the school year begins. (more information coming on that date and time).  The times for the meetings are as follows:

            5:10-5:30, 5:40-6:00, 6:10-6:30

Your family is expected to attend one meeting for each grade level your child is in (except for 4K which will be held another night).  Our goal is to allow many of your questions to be answered that night, as well as begin to foster a great relationship with your child’s teacher. If you have questions about this event, please feel free to contact school.

Welcome:  We would like to welcome Mrs. Rae Wellnitz to our teaching staff at St. Victor School. Mrs. Wellnitz will be taking over both the library and technology positions at our school. Rae is a member of St. Clare of Assisi Parish and is a former teacher for the School District of Monroe, teaching Technology and Keyboarding at both the Monroe Middle School and the area elementary schools.  We welcome Mrs. Wellnitz to our St. Victor School community!

Generosity Day 2019:  We again will be participating in Generosity Day on Sept. 14, 2019. Our school will again be helping to create cards of appreciation for our police, fire, first responders, and sheriff’s department. We are looking for families to help in this process, each shift is only an hour. This is a great event that really brings our community together. I hope your family will be able to join us. There is a sign-up sheet in this family envelope.

Chicken Dinner: St. Clare of Assisi will again be doing a Chicken Dinner on Saturday, September 15.  There is an information sheet in the envelope. There are also raffle tickets available for the Parish Raffle which will be held that day.  You can pick up these tickets when you drop your paperwork off. We also will be sending these home in our first Wednesday Family Envelope.

Thank you so much for choosing St. Victor School for your child’s education.  We appreciate the opportunity to work with you in making your child the best student and person they can be.  If you have any questsions, please do not hesitate to call school, 325-3395, or email, joepeters@stvictormonroe.org.

God Bless and enjoy the rest of your summer!
