ROYAL REVIEW (10.09.2020)

To be Christ-centered in our words, thoughts and actions.

WE ARE BLESSED

On September 29, 2020, we were blessed to have Bishop Kevin Rhoades at Queen of Angels. Bishop celebrated Mass with preschool students as well as Fifth through 8th grade students. During his homily, he explained the story and importance of the ArchAngels.


After Mass, he went to many of the other classrooms and spoke with the students. He also discussed the ArchAngels during this time. While in the classrooms, he prayed the Angelus with the students in Fourth Grade and then prayed a blessing in the other classrooms.


It was such a wonderful opportunity for us to host the Shepherd of the Diocese. Queen of Angels Catholic School continues to be blessed beyond measure. We pray for your children, as well as you; and we continue to thank you for trusting us with the education of your children.


Mr. Wiegmann

UPDATE TO SCHOOL MESSENGER

Many times we will complete a school messenger voice message and parents will call the school because they received a phone call from us. This can at times be confusing to parents. In order to streamline our communications with all of you we will be adding a texting feature. Please see the important information below so that you can be part of this feature:


"We are adding text messaging capability to our SchoolMessenger Communicate, the system we use now for phone calls and emails. You will be receiving an “Opt-in” message from 67587 starting on Friday October 23, 2020 at 4:00pm. Simply reply back by texting “Y” or “yes” to the message. You then will receive an “opt-in” confirmation message."

PICTURE RE-TAKES

We will have our picture re-takes on Tuesday, October 27, 2020. If you had a picture taken but wanted a re-take, please return the pictures you received and your child can have that done. Also, if you missed out on getting your picture, this would be the time to have that done. Class composite photos have already been printed, so those will not include any new photos taken. This may be helpful so that you do not include that in your new order form.

T-SHIRTS

For those of you who missed out on the first order of the "Saints" spiritwear shirt for this year, we are going to be placing a second order. If you are interested in ordering a shirt or maybe even more shirts, please contact the office to receive an order form. The deadline for ordering is October 29th.

LUNCH ORDERS

It is very important that when you complete the order form for lunch, that you include your child's name on the order. We are receiving many order forms and cannot figure out what student the order form is for. Thank you for your cooperation in this matter.

FAMILY OF FAITH

Our Parish has books to help individuals and families study the faith at home. These activity books are for children to engage the whole family in growing in the faith together. This year we will be studying the creed.


Each month there will be an adult/parent meeting on a Tuesday evening to help you grow in your faith and prepare to lead you through that month’s material. At the end of each month there will be a Sunday parish gathering after the 10:30 Mass where all the individuals/families can come together as we continue to grow deeper in the faith and in fellowship as a parish.

It’s not too late to participate!


Please contact Laverne at the Parish Office to pick up your calendar and materials.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION FROM OUR SCHOOL NURSE

Dear Parents:

It is that time of year again, we are doing random grade head lice checks. As you know, a head louse is a tiny, wingless parasitic insect that lives among human hairs and feeds on tiny amounts of blood drawn from the scalp. Lice (the plural of louse) are a very common problem, especially in children. They’re contagious, annoying, and sometimes hard to eliminate. But while they’re frustrating to deal with, lice aren’t dangerous, although their bites can make your child’s scalp itchy and irritated, and scratching can lead to infection.

It is best to treat head lice quickly once they’re found because they can spread easily from person to person. Lice can’t jump or fly.


Signs of Head Lice

Although they’re very small, lice can be seen by the naked eye. Here are some things to look for:

Lice Eggs (called nits) - They look like tiny yellow, tan, brown dots before they hatch. Lice lay nits on the hair shaft close to the scalp, where the temperature is perfect for keeping they warm until they hatch. Nits look sort of like dandruff, only nits can’t be removed by brushing or shaking them off. It takes 1-2 weeks for the eggs to hatch.

Adult Lice – The adult louse is no bigger than a sesame seed and is grayish-white.

Scratching – A lot of children scratch and complain of things moving in their hair.

Small Red Bumps- You may see small red bumps. You see this lot around the ears and back of the scalp.


Treatment

Your doctor can recommend a medicated shampoo, cream rinse, or lotion to kill the lice. These medications may be over-the-counter or prescription medication. Treatment may be unsuccessful if not used according to the directions. Children may come to school after being treated for lice. Children found to have lice or nits at school must be picked up and treated immediately before returning to school. The student will be rechecked the morning they return, if any nits are found, they will need to be picked up and treatment continued.


Preventing Reinfestation

Wash all bed linens and clothing that’s been recently worn by anyone in your home who’s been infested in very warm water (130F), then put them in the hot cycle of the dryer for at least 20 minutes.

Dry clean anything that can’t be washed in the washer (like stuffed animals)

Vacuum carpets and upholstered furniture (in your home and car), then throw away the vacuum cleaner bag.

Soak hair-care items like combs, barrettes, hair ties or bands, headbands, and brushes in rubbing alcohol or medicated shampoo for 1 hour.

Because lice are easily passed from person to person in the same house, bedmates and infested family members also will need treatment to prevent the lice from coming back.


Any questions, please don’t hesitate to call me.
