In today's newsletter: Constitution Day, NWEA testing, All-School Mass, Jean Day, new Middle School teacher.
On Monday, Judge Geoffrey Neithercut will join us to speak to the students about the importance of Constitution Day, which commemorates the formation and signing of the U.S. Constitution. That document recognizes that all who are born in the U.S. or are naturalized, have become citizens. We thank Judge Neithercut for his continued dedication to our students!
NWEA testing begins this week for grades three, four, five, and six. Please be sure the students are well-rested (and healthy!) for the next three or four weeks so they can give the best that is in them when it is their turn to test.
Please join us on Thursday at 10:30 for our All-School Mass led by the sixth grade.
Friday is our first Jean Day. Students may wear jeans with shirts that are appropriate for school. If you have any questions about what is appropriate, please check the dress code that was sent home to every family. It can also be viewed on our website under 'Information.'
We still are looking for people to help with recess and lunchroom supervision. Please call the office and let us know what day or days you could volunteer to come in and help your children. Thank you!
We are so grateful to former SJV teacher, Mrs. Sharon Cuttitta, for filling our need of a teacher of Science and Math classes for our Middle School students! Mrs. Cuttitta has been a valued part of our SJV family for many years, and (though retired) offered to fill-in until a permanent teacher was found. She got the classroom set up, organized the students, and has paved the way for Mr. Bob Milne, also an experienced teacher, who will join our staff by the end of this month. Mr. Milne and his wife are parishioners of SJV, and their children attended school here. We are grateful that God led these two wonderful teachers to us!
And we are grateful to you, our families, for sharing your wonderful students with us.
God bless everyone!
