Summer Newsletter

We will continue to send out a newsletter during the summer months; however, now that we are wrapping up our inaugural year, it will no longer be called the Founding Family Update. Be on the lookout in mid-June for our first edition of the Crusader Chronicle!

Summer birthdays will be acknowledged at morning assembly next week!

Summer birthdays will be celebrated at morning assembly next week based on the following schedule:

  • Mon., June 1 - birthdays on June 5-30
  • Tues., June 2 - birthdays in July
  • Wed., June 3 - birthdays on August 1-19

Message from the Nurse: Pick up medications on the last day of school

Nurse Mandola would like to remind all parents of the policy set by the Archdiocese regarding medications. All medications must be picked up by the parent on the last day of school. Any medications not picked up by noon on June 4th will be thrown away.

Attention ALL Volunteers: Sign up for 2015-16 opportunities!

For those of you who attended Coffee with the Principal last Friday, you know that we will have a number of volunteer committees next year. Be sure to check them out! Because schedules and interests change, we will refresh our volunteer list each year. For this reason, we ask that all those interested in volunteering please sign up using our online form below. Even if you signed up last year or have volunteered for us before, please be sure to complete the form again this year so that we are aware of your interests.

Donate your non-recyclable school supplies to the Guatemala Missioners

Sending out Servants, a Catholic lay mission to the Maya of the highlands of Guatemala will have a team of missioners traveling to Joyabaj, Guatemala for a one week faith sharing mission. On the mission they develop programs for children and have a need for school supplies such as colors, coloring books, scissors, etc. Previous mission teams have reported that at the end of the school year their local Catholic schools often have orphaned or non-recyclable school supplies which may be useful on mission trips. Please consider donating any supplies you may have on hand - new or used. We have place a plastic container in the lobby of CtRCS to drop your donations now through June 5.

Box Tops for Education Results - 2014-15

Here are the final counts of Box Tops submitted by class for the school year:

1. Norton - 1,170

We received another 1,159 Box Tops from parishioners/general submissions (these had no name or class marked on them).

We expect to receive a check for about $330.00 for this round of collections! We will receive additional monies for box tops collected from now through November as well. We will also be looking into a similar program with Tyson products - more information to come.

For their efforts, Mrs. Norton's class will receive Chik-Fil-A next Wednesday! Congratulations 3rd Grade!!!
