CRUSADER NEWS THAT YOU CAN USE....

This Week's Recap....
We had a great week back after the mini vacation due to the Teacher's Conference.
We had a great turnout at the PTL meeting and we THANK YOU parents! We will work on having a sound system ready at the next meeting so that we all can hear better. Lots of great things are going on with our PTL!
Students have begun Round 1 of MAP testing. The first test is the base line and it is really not something that students can study for. The 2nd round of testing will take place in January and the final round (which is the most important) will take place in May.
Lots of activities are going on. Volleyball is still in full swing. Sign Language tryouts are taking place. Our band program has begun ( it is NOT too late to join, registration is still going on).
The first quarter will end on Thursday, October 25th. There is early release on that day. From 5PM until 8PM on that day, we will celebrate with our 3rd annual TRUNK OR TREAT. Additional information is provided on this fun and same family event.
There is no school on Friday, October 26th as it is a Teacher's Work Day. Teachers will be working on 1st quarter report cards.
On Thursday and Friday, November 1st and 2nd, we will have early release because we will be hosting PARENT TEACHER CONFERENCES on both afternoons. You will be sent a hyperlink to sign up for a 15 minute conference slot. It is very important that every student be represented by one parent or guardian. Please plan now for this. 1st quarter report cards will be distributed at these meetings.
Donations of Capri Suns are needed for our Hospitality Committee

Elementary Sign Language Try-outs
Please email Mrs. St. Vil at email@example.com if you wish for your child to try out for Elementary Sign Language.
Parents, please observe the following policies
- If you need to speak with a teacher, we will always make ourselves available. However, teachers cannot get into conversations with parents during arrival and dismissal. Their attention needs to be on all of the children and it is not appropriate to have conversations in front of the children and other parents. Just let a teacher know that that you need to talk to them and I am sure that a mutually agreeable time can be worked out.
- We had a situation this week when we needed to contact a parent due to an emergency and we had NO WORKING PHONE NUMBERS. Please make sure that we have up to date contact information on file.
- If you have a concern about another student in your child's class, it is NEVER APPROPRIATE for you to address that child directly. You must bring the problem to the attention of the teacher or an administrator and allow us to look into the problem. And unless you are personal friends with another parent, it is never advisable for parents to try and resolve problems between students. That is what we are here for. There are two sides to every student and it is human nature for parents to only hear their child's version. We are in a better position to be impartial and to get to the true facts.
It's PASTOR APPRECIATION MONTH!!
IF EVERY STUDENT SENT IN $1, WE WOULD HAVE A VERY NICE LOVE GIFT FOR PASTOR.
Please help one of our own.
Below is a link to a Go Fund me Page that I have set up. One of our wonderful students slipped while kicking a ball and suffered a serious leg injury. He is currently in a hip to toe cast. He will be out of school for some time and his family will have lots of unexpected expenses as they stay home from work to care for him. I know that I can count on our Holy Cross family to come through as we have done many times before.
Update: We have raised half of our initial goal of $2000 . If you have not contributed but wish to, please click on the link. below.
Please note: All of our chapel offerings from this week's chapels will be donated to the Go Fund Me Account so this is another way to help out.
Background check authorization
IF YOU HAVE ALREADY COMPLETED THIS LAST YEAR, PLEASE DO NOT APPLY AGAIN AS THERE IS A COST TO HOLY CROSS AND YOUR BACKGROUND CHECK IS STILL VALID.
Here is the link to the tab on our website:
The fact is that most children get sick. We do our part to keep the germs away by disinfecting daily and by closely adhering to the policies regarding sickness.
If a student is sent home with fever, vomiting or diarrhea, they may not come to school the next day as the law requires that a student be without any symptoms for at least 24 hours before he/she can return to school.
If a student has pink eye, impetigo, ring worm or any other communicable condition, they must come back to school with a Dr's. note.
Please help us keep our students (and our staff) well by not sending your child to school with illness. I know that it is difficult to make arrangements for a sick child but develop a back up plan now before it happens.
