From the Principal

The students in grades K-8 met this week as part of our social and emotional development goals and curriculum,
and signed a copy of “The Promise” (above). This was done as we prepare for National Bully Prevention Month. We will
continue to teach student skills that encourage appropriate social development, as we work to fulfill our mission to help
all students reach their full potential not only academically, but socially and spiritually as well.

Every October, schools and organizations across the country join STOMP Out Bullying™ in observing National Bullying Prevention Month. The goal: encourage communities to work together to stop bullying and cyberbullying by increasing awareness of the prevalence and impact of bullying on all children of all ages. For more information on National Bully Prevention Month, see the website stompoutbullying.org.

Parent PowerSchool Access
Parent PowerSchool Access information was sent home last week with the oldest child in each family. Please use this log in information to check your child’s academic progress. It is a parent’s responsibility to be checking PowerSchool regularly. This is a primary way teachers communicate grades throughout the year.

We will be meeting on October 7th and October 21st at our usual time of 5-6:30 pm. We'll either be meeting in the Atrium or the school cafeteria, depending on when the young adults group is meeting. We are going to be continuing our Sainthood series. October 22nd is Saint John Paul II's feast day so get ready to party on the 21st! If you haven't registered for Catholic Youth Summer Camp and are still interested, please email me and I can get you more information.

Soap Sales for HSA Fundraiser
We will be selling through Mad Anthony Soap from October 5 to October 30 for our Home and School Association
Fundraiser. Order forms will go home next week with the oldest child in the family.

You will be able to look through the multitude of items collected and put in the Lost and Found after masses on Oct 7th and 8th in the Atrium. Any unclaimed items will be donated and sold at the next Rummage Sale.
