2019-2020 Handbook and Other Required Forms

Parents,


Please remember that your Handbook Agreement, Code of Conduct, and Technology agreement forms by August 23. Forms should be turned into Homeroom, and on some forms, only one form is needed per family.


There have been amendments made to the Handbook this year; please refer to the handbook often as we are working to ensure that all Handbook guidelines are enforced to ensure complete safety, organization, and unity across our growing campus!


All amendments have been adopted from other larger Catholic School campuses and have been approved through the Catholic School's Offices. We ask parents to remember that as our community grows, so does the need for greater organization, unity, safety, and structure. We hope and pray that you will support and adhere to all new and old campus polices, remembering that we must model discipline, unity, and positivity the same way we want our scholar to do. WE are their teachers; as they watch us, we are teaching them how to be DISCIPLES OF CHRIST!

REQUIRED SCHOOL UNIFORMS

Our 2019-20 required uniforms are listed on our website. Uniform requirements will be strongly enforced by our staff for the 2019-20 school year. A grace period will be granted until September 1. After September 1, scholars not abiding by dress code will have to call home for a change of clothing. Please read the dress code requirements for your student.

Part of the uniform requirement is our Spirit Days on Fridays. Please adhere to this policy, remembering that no handmade spirit shirts may be made. This is to ensure the quality and consistency of our spirit wear, any handmade spirit shirt will be considered a dress code violation. Some shirts have been approved by the administration already, and those will be the only shirts allowed.

Hot Lunches This School Year

Tastefully Yours is providing a daily hot lunch option this school year. On Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday, Tastefully Yours will offer great meal options. Hamburger day will still be provided by Friends of Fatima on Thursdays starting the week of SEPTEMBER 1. On Thursday, between now and then, please make sure to send a lunch with your child.

MASS DAY REMINDER!

Just a reminder that our regular Mass Days are WEDNESDAY! We celebrated Mass this week on Thursday because it was a Holy Day of Obligation, but to avoid confusion next week, please remember Mass is on Wednesday. Please work to have ALL scholars in their appropriate mass day attire, including mass day shoes. Thank you!

Falcon Athletics

This year anyone who is interested in participating in Athletics will need three things on file:


  • All forms signed and returned to the front office (all of them are in the athletic handbook, available online on the front page of our website)
  • A physical completed for the school year, and
  • The athletics fee of $50 (per sport, per athlete) paid.

No forms, no payment = no play, no exceptions.


Volleyball


Volleyball is looking to kick off the 2019-2020 season in September. Practice will start next week on Tuesday August 20th and Thursday August 22nd, from 3:30-5pm BOTH days in Kukral. If you are interested in playing this year please come.


PLEASE wear the proper shoes for volleyball. Vans, Converse, and shoes of the like that are not fitted or designed for volleyball can damage your legs, creating shin splints and also sprained ankles. Anyone without the proper footwear WILL NOT be allowed to practice. Please make the proper arrangements.

J-LO's WORD

Children are a gift from the LORD; they are a reward for Him” (Psalm 127:3). This psalm declares that children are a reward from the Lord and should be nurtured in Christ accordingly. As we start our new year, I am honored to have a place in nurturing and growing our scholars as we lead them to be Disciples of Christ and Servant Leaders. Remember, we aren't full until we are all full, and that means we are constantly seeking ways to fill, serve, and love each other. Let's have a great year!
