Good Morning St. Victor School Families:

We begin our final week of the school year. I hope and pray that your family continues to stay safe and we continue to pray for all who have been impacted by COVID-19.  Since this is our final full week of school, I wanted to update you on a few things (I apologize that this email is so lenghty):

Dropping Off/Picking Up of materials:  Next week we will be having families drop off homework, library books, devices and any other materials as requested by your child’s classroom teacher.  We will do this on a day by day alphabetical order.  We ask that you please put in a bag(s) all the materials you are turning into school.  You can pull up in front of school and a staff member will come out and grab the items you are turning in. They will then go and grab your student’s materials for you to take home. It shouldn’t take long, just be patient with us.  We will begin collection at 7:30 AM and will conclude at 4:00 PM. The schedule is as follows:

Tuesday, May 26 Families with Last Name’s A-E

Wednesday, May 27 Families with Last Name’s F-K

Thursday, May 28 Families with Last Name’s L-Q

Friday, May 29 Families with Last Name’s R-W 

Please let me know if you have any questions regarding this procedure. We appreciate your help in getting all of our materials back to school, and getting your child’s materials and projects back to them.  

Survey:  We have worked on an electronic survey that we are asking each family to please take a few minutes to do.  This will give us necessary feedback moving forward if for some reason we need to continue distance learning at any time in the future.  Please be honest with your answers, as we need to make decisions that will best help benefit our students, you as parents, and our faculty and staff.  The survey link is:  https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/9ZMM3ZY

Report Cards:  There will be a third trimester report card that goes home to your family. This will look different. It will be reflective of what was taught, and well as skills to focus on during the summer for each student. These report cards will be mailed to families in June.

Summer School:  At this point, we are planning to partner with the School District of Monroe to offer a summer school program in August.  This is very tentative now, but the plan is that it would take place from August 10-21 from 8:00-11:00 am.  The main focus of this summer school program would be to work on getting a good jump start into the upcoming year.  This program is completely optional and would be free for students of the School District of Monroe. If you are an open enrolled family to the School District of Monroe there would be a small fee.  I do not have all the details yet, but more information will be coming.  I would encourage your family to strongly consider this option.

Tuition Contracts:  Thank you so those who have turned in your tuition contracts for the 2020-21 school year.  I would ask that you please take some time to fill this out, or if you are unsure of your intentions (which is completely understandable during this time), if you would please just let me know.  We are trying to order materials, create schedules, and staffing of our school for the fall. We need to have a “semi-accurate” count of students moving forward. Thanks for your help in this.

Msgr. Larry’s 45th Anniversary:  We will celebrate Msgr. Larry’s 45th year of priesthood this Saturday, May 23 with a drive through blessing from 4:00-5:00 pm in the new Gathering Space. If you are unable to stop by and thank Msgr. Larry I would encourage you to send a card to show your appreciation for his life-long vocation to our faith.

Thank you so much for your continued support of our school, its mission, and our faculty and staff.  We continue to pray for your family during this difficult time.  If you need anything, please feel free to reach out and let me know.  I look forward to seeing you all next week when you drop off your materials.

God Bless,

Joe Peters
