Snow Day Make Up Information
Because of the three snow days, we will now use Presidents' Day on Feb. 19 as a snow make-up day. Please plan accordingly to have your student attend school as usual on Monday, Feb. 19. Going forward, if we have a late start on a Wednesday, we will have school until 3:20 p.m., instead of an early dismissal at 1:30 p.m. If your student has an appointment that afternoon, you are welcome to sign them out as needed.

Educational Savings Accounts
Education Savings Accounts, ESAs, have given parents a choice in their child's education. Catholic education is becoming more affordable for families. For more than 35% of families, the Our Faith Student Tuition Organization, or STO, is the first piece of financial assistance income qualified families rely on. Even with the ESA's this year, more than 3100 students in the Archdiocese of Dubuque received more than $5.5 million in tuition assistance from the STO. Iowa taxpayers that donate to the STO receive a 75% Iowa tax credit, or 75 cents back for every dollar you contribute on your Iowa tax return. The 75% STO tax credit is the only tax credit of its kind, and it reduces the amount of taxes you pay to the state of Iowa at tax time. If you want to learn more about how to turn your taxes into tuition, watch this video, call the school office or go to OurFaithSTO.org.
Applications now being accepted for tuition assistance through STO!
