SACBS Bulldogs Beat
October 8, 2021
Message From Mrs. Runnels
I enjoy walking down the halls of St. Anthony Cathedral Basilica School because it is always exciting. Hearing the teaching, laughter, praying, singing, collaborating, and learning going on brings me so much joy! The SACBS teachers expose our students to many real life opportunities where they get hands on experiences to help them learn and grow.
Friday I had the chance to speak to one of our new students as he was spinning the prize wheel. He's so excited and grateful to be at SACBS. It warmed my heart to hear about his experience at our gem of a school. Make sure to click and watch the video below of my impromptu interview with Pedro. We are so blessed to be a part of this loving educational environment!
This week our students enjoyed learning some fire safety rules from the fire department. They also experienced the gift of giving by donating items to the fire department to show appreciation and brighten their day. Every month our students make birthday cards for staff at the church and some at the diocese. This week as I gave one of the church staff their birthday cards from 8th grade, they were overwhelmed by the thoughtfulness of our students. This small act of kindness brought so much joy to someone. Thank you bulldogs, for letting your actions show us how to be compassionate to others!
As we get ready for a brand new week and gift from God, let's continue to bring Jesus to everyone we meet through our words and actions!
Report Card Conferences
The first nine weeks have flown by and we have reached the end of our first quarter! Report cards will be going out next Friday, Oct. 15th in the Friday Folders. You will receive a link during the week to sign up for a day and time to meet with your child's teacher/s over the next two weeks. This report card conference will be the time to:
- have one on one time with your child's teacher,
- discuss your child's progress, and
- see if there are areas that may need additional help.
SACBS families we need your help with afternoon dismissal. Please use your family name plates when coming for afternoon pickup and leave them up until your child gets in the car. As a reminder, we have staggard dismissal times to help our carline run efficiently and effectively. Our dismissal from the main building takes 30 minutes tops, but in most cases at about 3:05 we don't have any cars waiting in the line. Families that come around 3:05 can drive right up, pick up their students, and get their evening started without much of a wait.
Dismissal times are:
ECC - 2:30
1st - 5th - 2:45
6th - 8th - 3:00
If you have more than one child, please come at the time your oldest child is dismissed. Our middle school students get back to their homeroom at 2:45 after their last class. They have to pack and pray before being dismissed. If you arrive at 2:45 for a middle school student, you will have to wait 10-15 minutes before they will be ready to dismiss. We know that your time is valuable and we don't want to create a traffic jam. Please help us streamline our afternoon dismissal so that it flows smoothly and safely for everyone.
