Bingo Help Needed—Beginning Friday, January 10, 2020

Parents who need to make up Bingo hours….Please report to the gym for job assistance by 4:30 and be sure to sign in on the Attendance Form so your family receives credit for working at Bingo. Also, it is IMPERATIVE that you sign out before you leave at the end of the evening.  You will not receive credit for working Bingo hours if you do not sign out. Your assistance is greatly appreciated.  As stated on page 4 of the Student Handbook; “You must sign in and out on the Bingo Attendance sheet to receive your credit. Parents are not allowed to have anyone else work their Bingo hours. You may not be signed in or out by another parent.”  Thank you to all those families who regularly help at Bingo.  We appreciate all your help!

MAP Testing continues

Students in Grades K through 8 take MAP tests in Reading, Language Arts and Mathematics.  Please make sure your child gets rest each night and has a good breakfast each day.  Test results will be sent home in early March.  Thank you for your support and cooperation.

 

Attention: Grade 5, 6 and 7 Families

The School Board and Administration of Cardinal Spellman High School is planning to expand their school community to include Grades 6 through 8, beginning in Fall 2020.  This is wonderful news, coming at a time when we are just absorbing the sad news of the closing of St. Joseph School.   You are invited to an important meeting with Cardinal Spellman Administration to be held at St. Joseph School on Thursday, January 23, 2020. There will be two sessions for your convenience: one at 6:15 and one at 7:15. It would benefit you and your children to come to this meeting.  I hope to see you there.

 

 

Below you will find a list of events for the upcoming weeks and to assist with planning.
 

Thank you and God bless.
