Greetings!

Your "Summer Packet" will be available in the

narthex for pick-up August 8 through August

16. Please stop by to pick up your family's

envelope, which includes important back to school information and forms.

  

School pictures are taken on Orientation Day (Friday, August 21). Students do not wear their uniforms for pictures. Order forms for both the pictures and yearbooks are enclosed in the packet. Please note the order form for the yearbook is separate from the school picture order form.

Donations Requested for K5
This year Mrs.McRae is transforming her housekeeping center into a new imaginative play center each month. Many of you have some awesome jobs and she was wondering if you could help her collect some items? Some of the things she was hoping to collect would be items to make a doctor's office, a vet, restaurant items, grocery store, etc. If you have any items that may be of use for her classroom, please drop them off in the school office.  Her students would truly appreciate it! Thanks.

BACK TO SCHOOL UNIFORM RESALE!

 

New this year, we are holding a uniform resale before the school year begins.  Pick up your school packet after mass and stop in and shop at the resale.
 
Where:  Parish Center, Room P210         
            
When: Sunday, August 16th after the 9:00 AM
            and 11:00 AM masses
 
For those who didn't get a chance to sell their uniforms at the end of last school year, now is your chance.  Uniforms can be dropped off on Wednesday, August 12th and Thursday, August 13th from 9:00-Noon at the school office.  When dropping off items, you MUST have them clearly marked with tape that includes your name and asking price.  You will need to fill out an envelope indicating whether you want any unsold items returned to you or donated.  The envelopes will be returned to school families with any proceeds earned via backpack or pick up in the school office.
 
If you have any questions, please feel free and contact Amy Lodes or Gina Boettcher.

Back to School Bash- August 28
Mark your calendars to bring the whole family to school for the Back to School Bash.  The bash will be on Friday, August 28  from 6:00-8:00pm.  Bring a lawn chair and snack on popcorn and ice cream and enjoy live music by the Extra Crispy Brass Band. 

Volunteers are needed to make this event run smoothly.  Check out our volunteer page on Sign Up Genius.

Summer SCRIP 

We will be placing orders our last summer order on August 10.  Scrip will be available to pick up at the Parish Office the following Thursday. 

 

To our online customers, please note these instructions.  If you are reloading plastic cards or printing them off at home (ScripNow), you may continue to do so and receive immediate usage just like you always have enjoyed.  But please note, if you order PLASTIC cards, you will only receive them the Thursday after our orders have been placed in August.  Remember when you use PrestoPay, the money will be drawn from your bank account the very next day.  We want you to be extra careful when placing your orders so you can avoid paying for your SCRIP, but not being able to use it until weeks later.  If you have any questions concerning online ordering, please feel free to contact Martha Connelly, 262-717-9389 or Janet Fisher, 262-784-9673.
