Dear Parents and Guardians:

Thank you so much for an incredible school year! I hope and pray that your summer will bring you a good time to be together as family, as well as experiences that will allow you to grow.  I strongly encourage you to do a couple of things this summer:  READ. Make sure your child practices this important skill. Use the Lexile numbers on your STAR testing to get the “just right” books your child can succeed with.  MATH FACTS. I can’t stress enough the success a math student has when they can rapidly recall the facts that they have been taught.  Do some flash cards every single day.  Finally, go to CHURCH.  Spend some time as a family in prayer and worship.  Remind yourself to continually thank God for all the great things that he has given to you. We are all so truly blessed.  HAVE FUN.  Get outside, enjoy time together, and be safe. 

Balances for Hot Lunch:  A reminder that all unused hot lunch money will be “moved forward” to the 2019-20 school year unless your student is not returning then you will receive a refund.  PLEASE if you have not made your final lunch payments for our current year, please do so as soon as possible.

Report Cards for the Third Trimester are in today’s envelope. Please look them over and if you have questions, please feel free to contact your child’s teacher. Enclosed also is the final trimester STAR testing scores. Please take a look at the Lexile level and review the material that was sent home last week. This will allow your child to make sure they are reading “just right” books for them throughout the summer.

Summer Office Hours:  The school will be open the month of June from 8:00-Noon, please call before you stop by to make sure someone is here. (As we have a few meetings in June that we need to attend in Madison).  The office is closed in the month of July.  We are also available by email throughout the summer.

Summer Dates:  There are a few summer dates I wanted you to be aware of:

June 26-27-28-29 is our Vacation Bible School. There is still time to register. Call the Parish Office, 325-9506 to do so!

July 17-21 is the Green County Fair. We will be helping with beverages in the Grandstand during this time. There is a note in today’s envelope confirming your time if you signed up to help. If you would like to help, but did not sign up, please contact the school office, 325-3395.

July 22-23-24 is the Catholic Daughters Clothing Drive Drop off.

July 25-26-27 is the Catholic Daughters Clothing Drive. You can stop by and pick out clothing as well as school supplies during this time.

August 3 will be the Swimming and Yearbook Party at Rec Park.  We will begin with swimming from 11:00-12:30 followed by pizza and a signing of our yearbooks!  This event is FREE for your family (even if you didn’t order a yearbook come and join us, and if you would like a yearbook some will be available that day as well).  More information will be coming out via Facebook (so make sure you follow us if you do not already)!

Thank you so much for your support of our school and parish communities. It has been a great year. Have a great and restful summer.

God Bless,

Joe Peters
