The Blue Notes
Wednesday, November 18, 2020
So Much Gratitude
Since we won't have a Blue Notes next week due to Thanksgiving, I express my thanks to our parents for choosing Catholic schools, our teachers and staff for their hard work day in/out, and our students for sharing their energy and heart. I celebrate our 8th graders, preparing for their High School Placement test, applying for scholarships, and Making Every Minute Matter. We are especially proud of Sire Holloway for being the first Daniel Murphy Scholarship Recipient (chosen out of 800 citywide applicants) at SJDLS in 10 years! Thank you all for making our school a great place to learn and grow in faith. --Mrs. Santellano

SJDLS has been practicing CASEL’s five social emotional competencies for several months. Today, we unveiled our Wolverine Paws . Each time a staff member notes that a student practices a SEL skill, they can hang it on the wall. Congrats Kyna, Ziyon, Sire, Jaylin, Destiny, & Shediah!
Tuesday is our Report Card Day. Students in the building will be sent home with their Report Cards at dismissal (2:45 p.m.) At home students can get their report cards between 8:30 a.m.-2 p.m. Please call Mrs. Wills and make arrangement if this does not work for you. No report cards will be released to any family with accounts in arrears.
Tuition is due on the 10th each month. FACTS late fee is added the 19th. Exclusion Days are the 19th each month. SJDLS does not get the fees from FACTS. Please pay on time so we can pay our staff, as well as the heating bill, etc. Do NOT sent your child to school on Exclusion Day (online or in-person) unless you have a payment plan in the office.
