Robo Calls for Snow Days - We recently sent an automated call regarding Picture Day.  If you did not receive that call, please contact the school office with an updated phone number.  We want to make sure our call list is up-to-date because this is how we contact families in the event of school closures or emergencies.


We will host an online Scholastic Book Fair during the week of November 29-December 5, 2021.  This would be a great time for some Christmas shopping and to gather books for winter reading fun.  Thank you for your support.


Poinsettia Sale Deadlines - We are currently taking orders for the Christmas/Holiday Plant sale.  Paper forms are due in the school office by Wednesday, October 27, 2021.  Online ordering must be complete by Friday, October 29, 2021.  Please call or text project chair Nikki Schmelzer at 330-204-3911 or email at nicholeschmelzer@gmail.com with any questions.  Thank you for your support.


Remember - If your family signed up for morning care and you decide not to use it and make other arrangements to get your child to school, you need to let the school office know in advance.  We are happy to provide the service for parents if necessary but we need to meet expenses in order for the program to continue.  Morning care hours are from 6:30am until 7:30am, when a teacher is on duty.


All people entering the building (visitors, parents dropping off preschoolers, and preschool students) are reminded that our older students have started classes and that it should be quiet in the hallway.  We do the school prayer, Peace Builder's Pledge, and Pledge of Allegiance together before entering the building and the kids are doing a great job of coming in and getting our busy daily routine started.  Thank you for helping to minimize distractions.


Please remind the students that all playground recess rules need to be followed any time they are using the playground, including after school.  We want everyone to enjoy the good weather and fresh air and to stay safe.  The students will enjoy outside recess during the school day whenever the weather permits it, so please remind them when they might want a jacket or coat.


Parent teacher conference schedules went home last week.  If you did not receive one, please call the school office.


Great News! Bishop Brennan will be visiting our school on the morning of November 3, 2021.  He will be here approximately 7:45am to great the kids as the day begins, pray with us, and visit the classrooms.  Parents are welcome to greet Bishop in the parking lot before the school day begins.


Have a great week!  Mrs. Miller
