Easter Break

Easter Break begins on Wednesday, April 13th at the end of the school day. School resumes on April 20th.

Faculty Update

Our search for a 7th grade long term substitute continues. The 7th grade classes will continue to be taught by Mrs. Brennan, Mr. Wild, and myself.

Mrs. Samantha Hanczaryk, our Pre-K 4 teacher, has had to take an emergency medical leave and will not be returning to St. Ignatius this year. Mr. Hanczaryk asks for her privacy and your prayers at this time.

Graffiti Concerns Continue

A few weeks ago, we shared our concerns about a growing problem with graffiti in our bathrooms on the second floor in the Red Building. We repainted the stalls to cover up the graffiti in hopes of stopping the acts from continuing. The graffiti has returned this week. Please remind your boys about respecting school property.

Scholastic Book Fair

From Mrs. Madden and Mrs. Crozier

Thank you to all the families that supported our St. Ignatius School Book Fair last week. The Book Fair was a big success, and we will be able to purchase some exciting new pieces for our Stem Lab.
We would also like to thank the volunteers that took time out of their day to help us.
Your support allowed us to get back into some normalcy!

The following families were the winners of the Yardley Ice House gift certificates,
Baranauskas, Gorecki, and Salzano.

We thank Mrs. Madden and Mrs. Crozier for all their hard work organizing the Book Fair this year. Their tireless work and dedication for St. Ignatius' students is appreciated.
