THOUGHTS FROM DR. VOELKL

This week marks TEACHER APPRECIATION WEEK for amazing teachers everywhere! We are truly blessed with a dedicated, talented, hard working, kind, compassionate, and...and...and group of educators who serve the students and families of Saint Charles Borromeo. If looking for an easy way to say thank you or express gratitude I have included our list of "teacher" favorites below. We are always grateful for our families who allow us to partner with them in helping our students grow into the best versions of themselves.


In addition to thanking our teachers we also ask our families to continue to pray for our 2nd grade students who received the sacrament of First Holy Communion on Saturday and our 8th grade students who will receive the sacrament of Confirmation on Wednesday. We pray that as they celebrate and participate in these sacraments they continue to grow in their faith and relationship with Christ.


Warmest blessings,

Dr. Voelkl

TOTUS TUUS!!


Totus Tuus is a program that is brand-new to St. Charles Borromeo this year and we are very excited about it! The mission of Totus Tuus is to bring young people into a relationship with Christ and His Church for lifelong discipleship. Emphasis is placed on dynamic sharing of the faith, Sacraments and a whole lot of joyful fun! College missionaries lead the program and have a profound impact on the youth that attend. It will be held at Borromeo June 5-10th. There is a day program for rising 1st-6th graders and an evening program for rising 7-13th graders. You can register your child(ren) and find out more info here: bit.ly/totustuusregistration. We are also in need of volunteers to assist with drop-off, pick-up, helping the missionaries, lunch, snack, etc. We will also need 2 host houses for our missionaries to stay at that week, as well as lunches and dinners for the missionaries. See the volunteer sign up genius for more info. You can sign up to volunteer here: bit.ly/totustuusvolunteers.

2022-2023 CALENDAR

Please find a copy of our 2022-2023 SCHOOL YEAR CALENDAR pictured and attached below. We have pulled out some important dates for you to assist with any future planning. One item of note / change from previous years' calendars. Every third Wednesday is marked with an aqua blue square to indicate a 2:15 dismissal for all students. Students who cannot be picked up at this time will be able to stay and care will be provided free of charge. Any students remaining after 3:00 pm will be filtered into our BASK program and BASK rates will apply. This time will be utilized by teachers to work in Professional Learning Communities to further their growth as instructional leaders.

If you have a high school or college aged student who is interested in working in our BASK program we are always looking for new responsible employees as well!

NURSE NOTES

Spring allergies seem to have arrived. If you have a child with allergies now would be a good time to remind them to take any necessary medications. If you have a child who will need allergy medication during the day it can be turned into the office with a signed doctor's note.


If you have received your COVID vaccine and want it to be documented in our FACTS system please send records to Nurse Quarando at nurse@borromeoschool.com. Please note this is not a requirement.


Please remember to bring water bottles to school, we continue to go through a lot of cups.

CAFE HELP

We are grateful for ALL OF OUR Cafe helpers. Our first session (11:00-12:00) is a slower pace with K-3 students and is mostly helping open items, pass out disposable silverware and condiments, help kiddos stand in line patiently for recess, and help wipe off tables. The second session (12:00-1:00) is a much faster pace yet has lots of kiddos 4-8 grade in and out of the Cafe in less than an hour. This is mostly monitoring/walking the room and helping wipe off tables. Thank you in advance and thank you to those who have helped in the past and continue to help!
