PICTURE DAY

Life Touch Studios will be here this Friday, October 17 to take photos of every student. A flyer regarding pricing and other important information is included.   Buying school pictures is optional, but if interest is low, next year they will probably only take the pictures of students who purchase packages. Students may be out of uniform on Picture Day, but must dress appropriately. Thank you, in advance, for reviewing the non-uniform guidelines in the handbook (p.23-24).

DIA DE FOTOS

“Life Touch Studios” va a venir este viernes, el 17 de octubre para fotos de todos los estudiantes. Uds. recibieron la información el jueves anterior.  Nadie necesita comprar fotos, pero si interés es bajo, en el ano próximo las familias necesitan comprar antes fotos.  Estudiantes no necesitan usar uniformes el día de fotos pero necesitan llevar ropa apropiado. (Libro de reglas, pp. 23 – 24) Gracias para su cooperation.

ANNUAL FUND

Thanks to all the families who have returned their Annual Fund envelope. This is one of our two fundraisers. Families pledge financial support and/or prayer in order to keep our school going. Your support is vital to the future of your children and all the future students who will become a part of the Sister Thea Bowman family. Seek joy in the giving.

We ask that each family return their envelope by Friday, October 17. If your family returns their envelope by this Friday, your child may be out of uniform on Monday, October 20.

TRUNK OR TREAT

Our 11th annual “Trunk or Treat” event will be held on Friday, October 31.   Students are invited to bring a costume to change into around 2:00p.m.  We count on our parents/guardians to make sure that costumes are appropriate for your child’s age and for wearing at a Catholic school event. Traditional Halloween costumes such as skeletons, scarecrows and witches are fine.  Costumes/masks of famous artists or stars who use violent, foul or degrading lyrics or images are not allowed, as well as anything bloody and/or violent in nature. Props, including toy guns and swords, etc., are also not allowed.  Please note that students do not have to have a costume to participate in Trunk or Treat.  Your child should bring a container for the Halloween treats they receive.

Parents/Guardians who are participating are invited to come between 1:30p.m.-1:45p.m.  A staff person will be on hand to show you where to park your car out on the playground area between the school and the church.  Feel free to come in costume and to decorate your car in Halloween style!  Have the Halloween treats, (wrapped candy, stickers, and pencils) you plan to hand out in the trunk of your car.

Please note that for safety reasons, all entrances to the parking lot will be closed at 2:00 and won’t reopen until 3:30p.m. dismissal.

After a class has been to each car, they will go back into to their classrooms to enjoy their treats until dismissal time at 3:30p.m. Parents/Guardians are welcome to enjoy some refreshments in the staff room until dismissal time.  If you are unsure of the appropriateness of your child’s costume for this event, or if you have any other questions regarding this event, please call the school office. Thanks for all you will do to make our 11th annual Trunk or Treat event a huge success!
