Return Title 1 Forms

We sent home Title 1 Federal Funding forms last week. Please fill out and send them back to the school office on Monday! This helps our school receive access to appropriate funding.

Fall Break Coming Up

Fall Break is coming up this next week. No school on Friday, Oct. 15th or Monday, Oct. 18th. We wish all our students and their families a safe and relaxing break!

Report Cards

Report cards will go home this Thursday for K-8th. Kindergarten's report cards will be in backpacks; 1st-8th guardians should receive a link to electronic report cards via email. Please check your FACTS by this Thursday at noon to clear outstanding balances that could result in a report card hold.

Uniform Sweatshirts Pre-order

TODAY is the last day to order the Flynn O'Hara UNIFORM sweatshirts. These are the navy sweatshirts with the screen print school logo in the corner. May NOT be worn during school mass.

Youth sizes - $20 each

Adult sizes - $24 each

Place orders using this form to be billed through FACTS (school families only). Sweatshirts will be sent home with the youngest child when they are ready.

Picture Retakes

Picture retakes are October 20th. We will send home your pictures early next week so you can decide if retakes are needed!

Excessive Tardies & Early Check Outs

The minutes and days are adding up! For the week of Oct. 4th, we had 68 students tardy, which averages out to about 15 students a day. We also had 29 early check outs. Please take advantage of 2 o’clock Tuesdays for appointments when you can. Again, those missed minutes and hours will add up to create learning loss.

Stay in Your Car During Carpool

Please do not get out of your car or cross the pick up line during carpool. If you need to come into the school, please park and come in once carpool is complete.

SALT Poinsettia and Wreath Sale Coming Up!

We are bringing back our Christmas poinsettia and wreath fundraiser for SALT! Be on the lookout for information about ordering to come home this coming week! We will have the option to place orders online as well as paper forms so you can take orders from family and friends. All the profits will help fund our SALT program. If you have questions, contact Colleen de Keratry.
