Summer Update #5
Holy Cross Lutheran School August 6, 2017
What's going on?
The school offices will be closed for business tomorrow, Wednesday, August 9th from 11:30AM until 2PM; all day this Friday, August 11th and from 9AM until 11AM on Monday, June 14th as we have staff events in preparation for school.
Class Assignment Cards will be mailed
If for some reason you do not receive a card, please call the school office BEFORE you come for orientation. Please note that if you do not receive a card it is due to the wrong address in our records or a postal error. All cards will be mailed.
ORIENTATIONS- Meet the teacher!
If you want to participate, you will visit them all and see what you can learn and receive a stamp on your paper. This is of course optional. If you do not wish to participate, just pick up your forms and visit the classrooms of your children. All completed forms (this means that you have visited all areas indicated) will be entered into a drawing for a small prize.
Remember, the idea is not the prize, it is taking advantage of the opportunity to visit all around the school and meet staff that you might not otherwise meet. Please bring your patience and a positive attitude as we expect a great turnout!
You will be able to purchase PE uniforms, early childhood shirts and shorts, bibles, composition books, etc. at these events. CASH OR CHECK ONLY at these events.
Thursday, August 17th 6PM to 8PM
Friday, August 18th 12PM to 3PM
Note....You may bring school supplies to school to orientation, but please have them all together in a bag, labeled with your students name and only leave the items that are kept at school.
School Uniform Policy and Dress Code
Sunshine-Wear Uniforms is the official uniform provider for Holy Cross Lutheran School. Students in K5 and up should purchase uniforms from Sunshine-Wear.

Service Hour Opportunities
On Wednesday, August 16th, volunteers from our church and school and our staff will come together to get some work done on our grounds and in our classrooms. There is plenty to do and we need your help! This is an awesome opportunity for parents to begin earning their service hours for the year. We will feed you a simple meal. Community Work Night is Wednesday, August 16th, 5PM to 8PM but come when you are able. Come first to the school office to sign in and you will be given an assignment /room to help in.
We still need more Breakfast volunteers. This position is from 7:20AM to 8:05AM, 45 minutes per day. If you enjoy being around kids and can make this commitment, please contact Mrs. Mackey so we can discuss it further and how it can be mutually beneficial. This requires commitment. Two more volunteers are needed.
Volunteers are needed at our Orientations. If you are able to come to one and help at the other, please notify Mrs. Mackey via email.
