Principal Update

Happy Easter!

Weekly Principal Notes:

Dear St. Clare Families,

Thank you for your continued support. The donations of paper toweling, items for the Raffle, snacks, etc. are all very generous and helpful. Moreover, thank you to each of you for your continued trust in St. Clare's.

We are seeing healthy enrollment numbers in our 4K-4th grades for 23-24. We have a similar number of students enrolled in Middle School as we do this year, but can certainly welcome more. If you know of any families with younger children in the 3K age, please encourage them to schedule a tour or consider St. Clare's. We have room in our program for the fall and would love to share our special school with them. Overall, we have 101 students currently registered for the 23-24 school year! I am so excited about that. You can even ask Ms. Lea, I did a happy dance and said a prayer for each registration. You can picture it... or maybe not... I don't want to traumatize anyone with my dancing skills, lol.

I shared a reminder earlier this week about the dress code, as the weather gets warmer. Please refer to that previous email for policy language or reach out with any questions. I personally encourage all students to wear shoes with closed toes, even though that goes above our current policy language. It is a safety thing. We are seeing a lot of our students, especially the younger ones, stubbing toes, having issued with the playground woodchips, or event accidentally getting stepped on in line. I know sandals can be tempting, but for younger children, it is safer to wear closed toe shoes. Regardless, of preference, all shoes must have backs on them per Diocesan and State regulations. I appreciate your support and consideration for this preference.

As always, please be assured of my prayers for you and reach out with any questions.

God Bless,

Katie Stanczak

How does Tuition Assistance Work?

The Tuition Assistance form is filled out by each individual family, if they are interested in applying. The information is kept strictly confidential between the Pastor and Parish Bookkeeper. No-one on the School Staff, including the Principal or Administrative Assistant see the data or have an input in this process, by design. It allows the school to work with families and the Parish Office to oversee the application of any available aid, funding, or tuition related grants.

Please be assured of the confidential and respected nature regarding these sensitive topics. If you have any questions or are interested in learning more about your financial options, please contact the Parish Office at 1-920-864-2550 and fill out the form below.

Tuition Assistance is designed for families who do not qualify for WPCP, but could be helped by financial support from other options.

WPCP Entry Points: Apply at Grades 4K, K, 1, & 5 for a School Voucher

Scrip Helps You Save on Tuition!

Scrip is a great way to support the school and save yourself some money on tuition!

How Scrip Works: You buy Scrip to purchase everyday products (ex: gas, groceries, etc). The company donates a percentage back to the school when you use Scrip for your purchases. You get half of that amount as a savings on your tuition and the other half goes towards the school. For example, if you buy $100 Shell card, they give 10% back. Therefore, $10 is given back; $5 comes off of your tuition and $5 goes to the School.

How to Buy Scrip:

1) Scrip is sold after the following Masses:

- Saturday, 4pm Mass @ Askeaton

- Sunday, 8am Mass @ Greenleaf

- Sunday, 10am Mass @ Wrightstown

2) Scrip is sold at school on Wednesdays

3) Scrip can be purchased using the RaiseRight App

How to Sign Up:

Sign up with your coordinator or school.

Download the RaiseRight App in your app store.

Use enrollment code: A1C5219523L2

*If you use the app, eGift Cards, your purchased Scrip is in the "Wallet" feature on the app. Any purchase or physical gift cards will be shipped to the coordinator and then will have to be picked up at a later time and location. You can choose to pay on the app with the following options: "Banck Account" (has a $0.15/fee), or "Pay Coordinator Directly" (you will have to pay before your order is submitted), or "Credit Card" (has a 2.6% fee).
