Divine Providence School
March 11, 2021 Home and School Connection
NO SCHOOL ON FRIDAY MARCH 19, 2021
This decision was not made lightly as significant feedback was received from principals, teachers, parents and the Archdiocese School Board regarding the decision to suspend ACT Aspire testing this year. When this option was discussed with principals, this feedback centered on schools being able to leverage the i-Ready assessment for those grades as a substitute for standardized testing data this school year. Feedback pointed to the reduced time of implementation, the ease of use for the schools that were already leveraging i-Ready in grades K-8.
Divine Providence needs your help! We need your cooperation to speak with your child about doing their very best on this assessment. It truly is used to help drive the instruction for your child.
All students in kindergarten through 8th grade are required to work on i-Ready for 30 minutes each week for Reading and 30 minutes for Math. This includes students learning remotely.
Please help us share the word!
You can receive $500 off tuition next year by referring a new family! You can receive more than one discount if you refer more families. (You would receive the discount at the end of the 21/22 school year provided the referred family has been current with all tuition payments)
NUT cards! All students who have registered for next year will receive a NUT card! This will give them Friday out of uniform days from March 12- June 4th! The first class to get 100% response about next year (either they are registered or have let us know you will not be returning) will get a pajama day!
Re-Registration for 2021-2022 School Year
We are now in the process of planning for the upcoming school year! Planning for our school budget, textbooks, resources and the programs we can offer is all impacted by our school’s enrollment. This year, we are going paperless! We are asking all our current families to recommit to Divine Providence Catholic School for the 2021-2022 academic year. Please complete re-registration HERE. The registration fee is $200.00 per family (non-refundable).
