Dear Parents and Guardians:

Thank you so much for the great support of this year’s Brunch with Santa! It was a huge success, and it was nice to see so many of you attending as guests and helping out as volunteers! Thanks so much to Tasha Meier, Anita Stelter, Andrea Speer and Kari Hicks who made up the committee.  These people put in a ton of hours to make the event so special for our entire community.  To access the photos from Brunch please visit the website, www.stclaregreencounty.org.

Snowpants and Boots:  I visited with the children this week and we discussed the two purposes for wearing our snowpants. The first is to keep us dry from the snow, the second is to keep us warm. I would ask that you please send your child to school in their snowpants and boots (even if we don’t have any snow). This will keep them warm in the morning (which tends to be the coldest part of their school day). We will make a judgement for recess later in the day if they need to wear both or not, but if they have them here it makes it easier.  We ask that students take their snowpants and boots home each night.

Weather Closings: If for some reason we have a late start or no school due to weather, you should be receiving a call, text, email from the School District of Monroe notifying you of this. We always follow the School District’s decision to close school due to weather.  If you do not receive these (when the time comes) please let us know. We will make sure you will get these in the future.

Outdoor Recess:  We will take students outside for recess as long as the actual temperature and/or windchill is above 0 degrees.  Please make sure they are bundled up to be outside (hats, gloves, facemask, headbands, boots, snowpants).  It is important for students to get fresh air and be outside with their classmates.

Christmas Concert:  The concert will be held on Wednesday, December 20 at 6:30 pm.  We look forward to a great night of music as we celebrate the birth of Jesus!  Doors will open at 6:00 pm, and we ask our students to be dressed nicely (but also “cool” as the gym gets quite warm with all the people).

Catholic Schools Week:  The week of January 27-Feb. 2 we will celebrate National Catholic Schools Week.  This is a time where we join with all the Catholic Schools in the nation to celebrate!  We will again be singing at the 4:30 pm mass on Saturday, January 27.  After the mass we will have our CSW dance, the theme this year is “Musicals” based on our school theme of Make a Joyful Noise.  More information will be coming, but please mark your calendars to join us that day for mass (in the choir) as well as the dance (in the gym)!

Thank you so much for choosing St. Victor School! We are blessed to be part of this amazing community of learning and faith! If you have questions or concerns please feel free to call, 325-3395, or email, joepeters@stvictormonroe.org.

God Bless,

Joe Peters
