2. Cancer Prayer List

We currently have 119 people on our cancer prayer list. We would like to ensure that these folks stay in our prayers by having that as many rosaries said each month as the number of names on the list. We have 119 now, so we are looking for 100 rosaries to be said by the faculty, students and staff.


This is being done individually and within many classes, as well as in Religion class. We are keeping track by having those who have said a rosary for someone on the list put their name in the prayer basket in the main office.


We'd also like to invite the entire community to participate in this effort. If you have loved ones who have been affected by cancer, please send us their names and we will add them to our prayer list. We will add to our rosary count the number of rosaries that everyone says for those on our list.


Each week we are totaling the number and announcing it over the PA as well as in the online weekly newsletter. This will ensure the number requested is achieved. We feel this is great way to keep these individuals in our prayers.


Our loved ones include:


Maureen Weber, Lynn Morgan, Peggy Meredith, Jackie Kempf, Jeanine Lamb,

6.3 Library Happenings

SPD and Library Happenings


Our theme this month in Library is The Giving Tree by: Shel Silverstein. We read this book together and discussed what it means to give to others. Our library bulletin board will focus on what can we give for others this Thanksgiving season. Classes decorated leaves for The Giving Tree bulletin board and added things that they will do for others this season.

Preschool/Pre-K and 7th grade prayer partners celebrated Thanksgiving in the Library on Thursday of this week. The classes listened to Thanksgiving books and made a turkey bracelet together.

Kindergarten and 8th grade prayer partners will celebrate next Wednesday.

7. REMINDER - School Safety - AFTERNOON DISMISSAL Changes

Dear Families,

During a recent safety audit it was observed that our afternoon dismissal procedures need to be changed in order to provide safety for our children and families.

Below are the AFTERNOON DISMISSAL NEW PROCEDURES that went into effect on Monday, November 11, 2013.


All children will be picked up through the procedures STATED BELOW.


  • All families must use the car line procedures. This has been approved by our safety audit team, which includes the Metro Police and the School Board.
  • Please inform all those who are responsible to pick up your children of this change so they are aware of the new procedure.
  • Again, this is the best interest of your children and removes the risk of individuals entering our gym that are unwanted and should not be here.


AFTERNOON DISMISSAL PROCEDURE EFFECTIVE NOVEMBER 11, 2013


  • Each family will be issued two (2) identification cards with the family’s number on them. One of these cards is to be placed on the dashboard of the car picking the students up each day. These identification cards will be returned to the office during the last week of school.
  • All cars will enter St. Paul’s parking lot by the rear entrance only. Cars should precede single file to the front of church, where the first car will stop in front of the church. When a parking monitor gives the signal cars will proceed to the back of school and stop at the rear gym exit door.
  • Students will be sent to cars in the order of their arrival. After students are loaded in cars, the cars will proceed behind school to the stop sign and out to the light at Dixie Manor. If the line of cars that turned left waiting for the light is backed up, please turn right and use one of the other exits in the area. Do not attempt to exit through the alley behind church.
  • If you need to speak with a teacher after school, you may park in the Dixie Manor lot behind school and enter the school through the back doors. Teachers are not available to conference until all students have been dismissed. If you need to talk with a teacher or pick a child up early you must call the office to make arrangements.

  • Students not picked up by 3:15 PM will be sent to After School Care and there will be a charge of $15.00. Parents/guardians must pick up their children from ASC in the cafeteria, using the side entrance.
