Temporary Staffing Changes

The teachers at St. Louis Academy are like family! When they are sick, we want them to heal. When they need to focus on things outside of school, we want them to be able to do that so they can be healthy for their families. If they are in need of something, we want them to be able to reach out and express their needs. This week two of our teachers, (PreK) Melissa Masek and (4th Grade) Michelle Bradtmueller, decided they needed to step away from their roles at St. Louis Academy and focus on their health, their families, and their priorities outside of their work. The temporary teacher in PreK is Kelly Ley. Her temporary email is prek.sub@stlouisacademy.org. She will be accompanying the long-time PreK aide, Rachel Garland, for both the 3 and 4 year old program. During Mrs. Bradtmueller's leave, Jenna Corson will be returning to cover the class until the first week of November. Her temporary email is grade4.sub@stlouisacademy.org. We have Gatha Gray, an approved Diocesan sub with whom we have a well-established relationship, coming in after Jenna steps out. They appreciate your prayers and I am confident we will pull together as a family to support the teachers at this time, and be equally supportive to the teachers who have stepped in during their absence. If you have any concerns or questions as always please contact me.

Parent PowerSchool Access

It is a parent’s responsibility to be checking PowerSchool regularly. This is a primary way teachers communicate grades throughout the year. Contact Mrs. K with any questions.

Scholastic Book Fair

The Book Fair is set for the week of October 23-27. Student preview day will be Friday, October 20, and students can purchase during library time on the 24th. It will also be open during Grandparent’s Day on the 25th.

Diocesan All School Mass

Permission forms have been sent home to all students in grades 4-8. It is scheduled for Thursday, October 26, 2017 at 10:30 a.m. at the Allen County War Memorial Coliseum in Expo II & III (first floor). We are looking for drivers. If you are able to drive, please complete the driver portion of the permission form. We will also once again participate in a food drive through Community Harvest Food Bank and we ask that all students bring in an item to donate. We were successful in filling approximately fifteen barrels last year! Bishop Rhoades will be the celebrant. We hope you can come! Due to the timing of the mass, ALL STUDENTS IN GRADES 4-8 MUST PACK A LUNCH.
