2 Choir Opportunities
Mass Choir Practice on Tuesdays: Students in grades 3-8 who would like to sing in the school mass choir on Wednesdays, should plan to attend practice afterschool on Tuesdays from 3:15-3:45pm in the school chapel. Only those students who attend practice on Tuesdays may sing with the choir on Wednesdays. At 3:45, students will be escorted to the gate by the dining hall along Frank Lloyd Wright Way. Those students not picked up at 3:45pm will go to aftercare.
Falcon Concert Choir on Wednesdays: Students in grades 3-8 are also invited to join Mrs. VanWieren for Concert Choir on Wednesdays afterschool from 3:15pm-4:15pm. At 4:15pm, students will be escorted to the gate near the dining hall along Frank Lloyd Wright Way. Those students not picked up at 4:15pm will be escorted to aftercare.
Parent Teacher Conferences
Kindergarten through Grade 4: Parents of students in kindergarten through grade 4 have an assigned time for a ten minute conference with your child's homeroom teacher. Please find the conference form in today's white envelope with your confirmed conference time. For those of you who did not request a time, a conference has been scheduled for you. If you have a conflict with your assigned conference time, please call the school office and speak with Mrs. Dyer to schedule a more convenient time. Please remember that conferences are scheduled for every ten minutes. I ask that you respect this schedule. If, after ten minutes, you require additional time, your child's teacher will be happy to schedule a time to meet with you at a later date.
Grades 5 through 8: Parents of middle school students are asked to pick up your child's progress report in the middle school hallway. Then parents may meet with teachers of their choosing. All middle school academic teachers will be available for conferences on Thursday, October 3 from 2:30pm-6pm and Friday, October 4 from 2:30-3:30pm. Please remember that conferences are limited to ten minutes. If, after ten minutes, you need additional time, we will be happy to schedule a conference at a later date.

Student Cell Phone Policy
In the event that a cell phone goes off while in a student backpack, St. Joseph Academy reserves the right to remove the phone from the backpack. Confiscated cell phones will be given to administration, and parents will be notified. Parents will need to make an appointment to come into the school to sign a Cell Phone Violation policy at a time convenient for administration. We cannot guarantee that administration will be available to meet with the parent and return the cell phone on the same day that it is confiscated.
If there is reason to suspect that a student is in possession of a cell phone, or the cell phone is not in the student's backpack, administration reserves the right to search the backpack, student possessions, or ask a student to empty his/her pockets. If it is confirmed that a student is carrying the cell phone, and that it is not in his/her backpack, the cell phone will be confiscated and given to administration. Parents will need to make an appointment with the principal to sign a Cell Phone Violation policy. Again, we cannot guarantee that administration will be available to meet with the parent and return the cell phone on the same day that the phone is confiscated.
Students may not enter the building in the morning with a food or drink. Some students are getting out of the car with drinks from Starbucks or McDonalds, etc. This is not permitted. Students will be told to throw away their drink or food if they bring it into the building in the morning with them. You can help by ensuring that students finish all food before exiting the car in the morning.
Finally, students may not bring food to share with classmates during lunch. This includes treats, pizza, etc. There are many grades in the lunchroom at the same time. It is not fair to have one class enjoying pizza, cupcakes, etc if we do not have enough to share with the whole cafeteria. If you choose to send in a small treat (donut, cookie, etc) to celebrate a child's birthday, please be sure you reach out to the homeroom teacher ahead of time.
Thank you for your help with this as we strive to maximize learning during our school day.
