Weekly Word – July 31, 2016

Dear Parents,
I hope you are enjoying summer – I know your children are enjoying it! The best part is we still have all of August left.

If you’ve passed by school at all, you’ve seen work trucks here everyday and I do mean everyday – jackhammering and drilling. We are renovating the smaller bathrooms and the bathrooms in PreK3. They were all original from 1956 – before your time.

Also, we have moved the PreK 4 classrooms downstairs to KA and KB and KA and KB upstairs to the PreK 4 rooms behind the cafeteria. These teachers will talk to you about drop off/pick up procedures with you at orientation.

Make sure to take some to relax.

Sister Merris

Please remember to check the online bulletin on our school website for important daily announcements and updates.

Breakfast may be at Tiffany’s, but dinner will be at Silent Auction!! Help us make this year’s Silent Auction sparkle like a tiara! The committee relies on your generous donations to put together fabulous packages.

There are three ways you can help:
Create/Donate a Package/Experience – If your family or a group of families would like to put together a package you can! We welcome any suggestions or ideas which would create and/or enhance the packages and overall success of the evening. Please contact a Silent Auction committee member to help work out the details.

Donate Sports or Concert Tickets or a Week at a Beach House – If you have a beach home or sporting tickets we could use them to build a fabulous package with other donations. We are most in need of a vacation home. This is our biggest money maker and helps us to make our goals to support our school. You can donate a week (at a mutually agreed upon date) or we can purchase a week. Please contact Diana or Antoinette to discuss.
