Start of a New SCRIP Year

Just a reminder to our St. Clare School Families that the new SCRIP year started on March 1, 2017. Any SCRIP purchases at this time will go towards 2017-2018 tuition.

Phone Calls

We have been getting quite a few phone calls to the office lately from parents asking to speak to their children. While we understand that personal emergencies happen, most of these calls could be relayed to your child by the office staff. Please consider leaving Lea a message to deliver rather than asking to have your son or daughter removed from class for a conversation. Thank you.

$10,000 Raffle Tickets are Here!

Your $10,000 raffle tickets are in your family folder. Please do your best to sell them to support St. Clare School. If you know you won't be able to sell them, return them to school as soon as possible so someone else can sell them. DO NOT THROW THEM AWAY. All tickets are important. If they are lost or thrown away they must be reprinted to maintain the integrity of the raffle. For those that you do sell, please return the stubs to the school as soon as possible.

In Search of Interested Hot Lunch Cook

As the Hot Lunch Committee moves ahead investigating hot lunch program options for 2017-2018, we are looking for people who may be interested in working as a part-time hot lunch cook at St. Clare School. We are just beginning the process. If we are able to provide our own program by cooking on-site, we would likely be able to provide some flexibility with days and would even consider splitting the position between two people. If this interests you, please let Dr. Nardi know at snardi@stclareagw.org or 920-532-4833.

Surveys from the St. Clare School Office

There are two surveys that have been sent out recently. One focuses on hot lunch preferences and the other survey focuses on fundraising. Please respond to both. Your opinion matters. If you would like either survey resent, please let the office know. Thank you.
