Dear Parents and Guardians:

In today’s family envelope is the tuition contract for the 2017-18 school year.  Please take some time to review the information, if you have questions please feel free to call me at school, 325.3395.  I would ask that these forms to be returned to the office by Friday, April 14. As you review these contracts I would like to take this time to encourage you to start using(or continue using) the SCRIP program.  This program will allow you to reduce your tuition amount just by purchasing gift cards for places you already shop (Walmart, Culvers, Cenex, Dunkin Donuts). Why not reduce tuition and allow the school to raise funds as well? It is simple and easy to do, please consider it.

A reminder, for you to receive the “parish member” rate you need to be making a financial contribution to the parish. Tuition is not considered this financial contribution.  Please remember that parish members contribute 53% of all costs to educate your child. It is important to give back to our parish community.

Spring Break:  Next week is Spring Break! The school offices will be closed during this week, if you need to purchase SCRIP you can do so at the Parish Center or after Mass on Sunday.  Enjoy the time away, and I pray we will all be rested and healthy and ready to take the final weeks of the school year on!

Tree Removal:  We were approached  by the City of Monroe regarding the removal of the trees on the terrace in front of our school(15th Street). These are Ash Trees, and have the emerald ash borer present. The City has received a grant to have these removed at no cost to us.  These trees will be removed during spring break and we are working with the city to have trees planted this spring.

Fish Fry:  The final fish fry of the Lenten season will be on Friday, March 31. Let’s work hard to make this the most successful one of the year. Please join us for great fellowship and food! Please sign up to help either at the back of church, on the website or by calling the school office.

Health Screening:  On Tuesday, April 4 we will be doing our annual health screening. This will include a vision screening component by the Lions Club of Monroe. We thank Heidi Walter and the Lions Club for making this screening possible. 

Living Stations of the Cross:  Our 4th Graders have begun preparing the Living Stations of the Cross. This is wonderful, prayerful experience for all involved. Please plan on joining us on Wednesday, April 5 at 2:00 pm or 6:15 pm in the school gym.  All are welcome to attend.

Thank you so much for choosing St. Victor School. We are blessed to be part of something special here!  If you have questions or concerns, please feel free to call, 325-3395 or email, joepeters@stvictormonroe.org.  Please have a wonderful Spring Break!

God Bless,

Joe Peters
