Dear Parents and Guardians:

The final parent letter of the 2016-17 school year! It has been a great year, and thank you so much for all that you have done to make it so special. We all appreciate the support you give to our school and parish.  We pray that you have an amazing summer, and enjoy your time together as family.

Report Cards are in today’s family envelope we ask that you sign the brown envelope and return it back to school. The report card is for you to keep. If you have questions about your child’s grades I encourage you to visit with the teacher.

Yearbook/Swimming Party:  The Home and School will again be sponsoring a swimming and yearbook signing party on Saturday, July 29 from 11:00-12:30 is the swimming and the yearbook and pizza party is from 12:30-2:00 pm. Please plan on joining us. If you did not order a yearbook there may be some extra copies to purchase that day, but you can join us either way!  This event is sponsored by Home and School and free to all of our families.

Trimesters:  After doing some research with the Diocese of Madison, along with the Educational Advisory Board the decision was to move from quarterly report cards to trimesters.  The main difference in this will be you will be receiving report cards three times a year instead of four. We will continue with two parent teacher conferences as we have traditionally done. I just wanted to make you aware of this change moving into the 2017-18 school year.

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.

Catholic Daughter’s Summer Clothing Exchange: The CDA of our parish will again be doing a clothing drop off. The dates to drop off items are July 20-21-22. The Clothing Drive will take place on July 27-29.  This is a great opportunity to share some clothing with those who may need it, or for you to stop by and grab something your children may need as well. We thank the CDA for offering this opportunity for our entire community.

August Mailing:  Not to rush the summer, but we will be sending out an August mailing the first week of August. We will also be doing our annual “Fee Days” this is the time when you can drop by your paperwork and pay for milk, hot lunch and tuition. The date of Meet the Teacher is Thursday, August 31 from 5:00-6:30 pm. If you have any questions always feel free to call school, 325-3395 or email, Thank you also to those who have returned their St. Clare of Assisi Raffle Tickets, you can drop them by the office anytime this summer, or in the offertory at church on the weekends.

Thank you so much for all your support throughout this school year. It has been a wonderful experience.  Please know how much we appreciate you entrusting your children to our care. My hope is that you continue to have safe summer.  We hope to see you around the parish this summer as well as during Vacation Bible School.

God Bless,

Joe Peters
