Staff Memo

October 17-21, 2016

A couple of things to add to your newsletter this week:

  1. Miss Brooke is in need of parent volunteers to help with recess, especially on Fridays so we can give 5/6 and 7/8 a break. Volunteers need to have a background check and go through the Safe Environment program. Miss Brooke needs someone from 10:00-10:30.
  2. PTO is hosting Trunk or Treat on Monday, October 31in the Visitation School's parking lot. Set up begins at 5 PM and Trunk or Treating will be from 6:00-7:30.

    If you are out buying candy for your own trick-or-treaters, the PTO would love donations of individually wrapped candy! There is a box in the front office for the candy treats.

    Please call or text Jennifer Barflied at (206) 251-5405 or email her at to register your trunk ASAP!

Noteworthy dates to be aware of:

  • Stephanie will give you a list of students that need to get their home language survey back to school. She wants you to process them if they do not return them by Friday, October 21.
  • Tuesday, October 25 - PTO Meeting @ 6 PM
  • All Saints Day is November 1. We will attend Mass @ 9 AM. Students are invited to dress up as a saint. I always request that my students know at least 3 facts about their saint. If students choose not to dress up, they need to wear FULL uniform since it is a Mass day.
  • Friday, November 4 is the last day of the trimester.
