RECORDS RELEASE

As our eighth-grade students are looking ahead to high school. This is the time of year when we get requests for report cards and standardized test scores.  Students applying for magnet programs in the public school also need copies of report cards and test scores. Please be advised that all tuition and aftercare accounts must be up to date before records will be released or sent to other schools.  

REPORT CARDS

Report cards were emailed out to parents last week. Please look at your child’s report. Also, please check the comments section to see if your child’s teacher is requesting a conference with you. We are half -way through the school year. If you are concerned about the grades on your child’s report card, please do not wait until the end of the year to have a conference with the teacher. There is still time now to improve. If you did not receive your child’s report card, please call or stop by the office.

FIRST COMMUNION

If your child will be receiving First Communion this year, please make sure you have turned in their Baptismal Certificate to the office. We will begin the after-school preparation classes on Wednesday, January 22 from 2:00 pm to 3:00 pm. 

Please make sure we have your correct email address; all Wednesday bulletins and important information is sent home via email.
