Parent Help Needed! I am hoping that a few parents could take the reins on planning and organizing our class Valentines Day Party on February 13th. I know this will be a huge help to the sub and really fun for the students. I have LOTS of ideas & resources. If you're interested please sign up here and shoot me an e-mail and we can chat. Thank you so much!
Overnight Field Trip
Please let me know by Wednesday if you are interested in chaperoning for this fun field trip. Also, let me know ASAP if you would like to be billed via FACTS. All forms are due February 23rd.
Book Reports - students should be checking out their NEXT book report novel tomorrow in library class. The genre for this next project is a choice of mystery or fantasy. Mrs. Schlehuber will not let students check out books if they have not returned their biography and classic novels. Please check in with your child to make sure that they have returned their old books are have checked out their new novel. Directions for this book report will go home next week after we go over the requirements in class.
Valentine Baby Shower & Class Party
These fun and special events will take place on February 13th this year so that we can keep the tone of Ash Wednesday on the 14th. It is an SJA tradition that around Valentines Day each year we have a baby shower where the students bring in baby gifts to be donated for mothers in crisis. To go along with our green initiative, gifts should NOT be wrapped this year. Our class's donations go to the Life Choices Organization. It is a very fun addition to our Valentines Day celebrations. The students may dress up in festive "party clothes" (dresses/skirts and blouses, slacks and collared shirts for the boys... it is fun if they dress Valentine themed :-)
Students may also bring in Valentines for their classmates on that day. A class list with instructions went home last week. Please keep our school's wellness policy in mind. There should be no candy attached to the Valentines. Students will get at treat at the class party. Students should bring in brown paper grocery bags by 2/12 to make mailboxes out of.
Cold & Flu Season - Please help keep our students healthy by keeping sick kiddos home and reminding your child to wash their hands. We will be doing lots of cleaning and sanitizing in the classroom to hopefully keep away any germs. Thank you for your help in these efforts!
Guardian Angel Program
What is better than the gift of Catholic education? The SJA Guardian Angel Program helps bridge the gap between our affordable tuition and the actual cost of educating each student. Your tax-deductible donation will allow SJA to continue to offer innovative programs for our students, recruit and retain highly qualified teachers, update our facilities and provide tuition assistance to qualified individuals who desire a Catholic education. Additional information can be found here or on the donation form here. Thank you for your support! We are hoping for 100% family participation.
