Message from the Principal: Nov. 30th
This Friday is the deadline for Fulcrum applications! Any family needing ANY financial assistance (anyone NOT paying the full tuition amount) MUST apply through the Fulcrum Foundation before a contract will be negotiated with the school. That must be done by this Friday!
The window for 2017-18 Fulcrum Tuition Assistance Grant Program (TAP) applications officially opened on October 1st, 2016. Thank you to the families who have already submitted their applications. Here is the link to apply: https://fulcrumfoundation.org/grants-and-programs/tuition-assistance. Also, please contact Berenice if you need assistance (or a computer). You will need tax info and other financial documents. Remember, no school financial aid will be given out unless the family has first applied through Fulcrum (acceptance does not matter...you only need to apply). Thank you!!
Have a wonderful week!

Advent Begins! Are You Ready?
He calls us to focus on “sobriety, to not be dominated by the things of this world” but rather to keep them in their proper place. He asks us to focus on what is truly important, our time with the Lord, not the material things of this life.

Each family is required to provide an item valued at $100 for the Crab Feed/Auction. Are you looking for ideas for auction items? We have procurement forms in the office if you would like to solicit local businesses for a donation. We have many businesses that will donate just by providing the procurement form and a verbal request. Please see the insert in this week’s communication folder for auction ideas. We also have a wishlist on Amazon if you would like to simply shop and ship your items right to the school.
We are excited to have an event website for this years Crab Feed/Auction, please check it out: hrrsjda.ejoinme.org/crabfeed2017. It has all of the important event dates, pricing, auction requirements and more. Tickets will soon go on sale online, so stay tuned for more information.
