Dear Parents and Guardians:
I had sent an email earlier this week to discuss the changes moving forward at both St. Clare of Assisi Parish and St. Victor School. Msgr. Larry will be retiring in the middle of July after 46 years of being a priest. Mrs. Booth, Mrs. Wellnitz, and Mrs. Sleiter are all moving on to new adventures as well. We are in the process of hiring for both Mrs. Booth (academic reading support) and Mrs. Sleiter (director of hot lunch). If you or someone you know is interested in either of these positions, please contact me at school.
Msgr. Larry’s Retirement: As Msgr. Larry moves toward his retirement, people are asking whether he needs anything. If your family would like to donate money toward his retirement (as he will need to furnish his new apartment) anything would be appreciated. Also a simple card or note from you would be wonderful. This is not an expectation or requirement - just something that would be very nice coming from individuals within our school community.
Spring Concert: A reminder that our Spring Music Concert will be held at Twining Park on Wednesday, May 26 at 6:30pm. (the rain date for the concert will be Thursday, May 27 at 6:30 pm) The bleacher seating at the bandshell is somewhat limited so I would encourage your family to bring chairs/blankets for the concert. Students are to be wearing their tie dye shirts. Just to let you know, as tradition, the “up front” seating we usually reserve for our 5th grade families as for many of them this will be their last concert at St. Victor School. Please be aware that when you arrive there will be an area roped off for these families (you may want to share that information with your other family members as well). Home and School will be providing snacks for students and families that evening (popcorn and bottles of water), please feel free to bring your own food as well. Students will be sitting with their families until their class is called up to sing, so it will be much more of a relaxed atmosphere. Please plan to arrive at Twining Park around 6:00 pm.
End of the Year: The end of the year is quickly approaching, I wanted to remind you of a few things:
June 1 is the final day of school for 4K and 5th grade. Our Pool Party for students in K-5th will be from 1:00-2:30. When we return we will have a clap out for our 5th graders! That evening is graduation for these students at 5:30 in church.
June 2 is the final day for all students K-4th grade. The release time this day is at 11:10. There will be no lunch served that day.
St. Victor Times: Attached to this email is our Spring edition of the St. Victor Times done by our 3rd grade students in Technology class. Please enjoy this!
Thanks so much for your continued support of our school! If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me.
