School Parents from Marie Chapman: Join the Home & School Committee for our first Parents’ Night. We will be having dinner at the Remus Tavern at 6 p.m. on Wed. Dec. 4. No meeting- no agenda! Just a meal with fellow parents and staff. Please RSVP to me. Also, if you are not getting Home & School emails from me, please let me know at firstname.lastname@example.org
Knights of Columbus Spelling Bee: Last Wednesday students in grades 4 – 6 competed in the K of C’s annual spelling bee. The Knights, staff and I are proud to announce the results. Scott M. first place winner, Bryce C. second place winner, and Logan W. third place winner. Best wishes as you move to the next spelling bee contest!
Match Day: I would like to thank Amy Fewless for preparing our table at Match Day. The theme was centered on baseball. Well, Mrs. Fewless hit it out of the ball park, and our school received one of the $75 cash prizes for best decorated tables! Thanks goes out to Lynn Tracy, school board member, for working at this event. When we receive totals, I will pass these on. Go to www.mecostagives.com for details regarding Match Day.
Scrip: Last day to order Scrip for Christmas gifts will be Dec. 13th. See Mrs. McCall if you have questions about this program. New families, Mrs. McCall will be glad to help you but our veteran families can help you too! Check out www.stmikes.us under Current News for information from Mrs. McCall explaining our scrip program.
Poinsettia Orders: Plants will be ready for pick up after Masses Dec. 7th & 8th or after school Monday, Dec. 9th. Do not forget to visit the cookie walk after Masses
Parent Teacher Conferences: It was nice seeing so many parents at PTC last week. I shared with the teachers that I saw many smiling faces as people were leaving. Some parents even commented that they thought the teachers had confused their children with someone else!
Tis the Season. . . .
Once again, it is that time of the year for the student Christmas Shopping Day. This is not a fundraiser. It is simply for the students to enjoy, and for some who may not otherwise get a chance to shop. It is scheduled for Thursday, December 5th .
Please put your child's money in an envelope and put the student's name and amount enclosed. The gifts are $5.00 and lower. Also, let us know who they are to buy for (Grandma, Sister, Uncle, etc.), the age of this person, and the amount to spend. This helps us greatly. Please remind students they are not shopping for themselves.
Thanks to De Willman for organizing this event. She has been called “The Super Shopper!” If you would like to help, contact De for details.
