October Lunch Menu - CHANGES Please Read
If you choose to order lunches for the month of October, please indicate so on the October calendar and attach a check to cover the cost of the lunches made out to St. Joseph Academy. I am hopeful that this will be an efficient way to process lunch orders and rectify some of the challenges we have been facing. Please submit October lunch orders no later than September 27.
* I recognize the format for the lunch menus that we send home to you needs to be changed. I am making the necessary modifications that will be reflected when you receive the lunch menu in November. Thank you in advance for your patience as I continue to find ways to make this process easier for you and for our office staff. God Bless!
Dress Down Day Tomorrow
*Students are invited to wear orange tomorrow in honor of Mrs. Bruchey and Leukemia Awareness month. This is certainly encouraged but not required. We will take pictures of our students in orange and send it to Mrs. Bruchey! Please continue to pray for her.
Mid Term Progress Reports and Conferences
Parents of Students in Kindergarten through Grade 4: Please be sure to return your Conference Request form with your preferred times for a Parent Teacher Conference. In your Falcon Express Envelope next week, you will find the form with your confirmed conference time. Please remember that conferences are scheduled to last for ten minutes. If you need additional time with your child's teacher, we will be happy to schedule an appointment for another time.
Parents of Students in Grades 5 through 8: You will NOT have a conference scheduled. Please be sure to make plans to drop by during the Conference window. Parents will pick up progress reports from the middle school hallway and then visit with teacher(s) of the parents' choosing. Teachers will be available on Thursday, October 3 from 2:30-6:30pm and Friday, October 4 from 2:30-3:30pm.

Scholastic Book Orders
If you are looking to order books from Scholastic for your children, please use the class code: LQ82L under Mrs. Ellerbe. The website is: https://clubs.scholastic.com/home and you can place your orders and pay for them online. Books also make great gifts for birthday parties and you can buy and donate books to your child's classroom too! If you're not a parent, you can use this code to order books if you'd like to donate them to our school.
As a school, for every $300 in books we order by 9/30/19 we will have 10,000 points. We use the points throughout the school year to buy books that the teachers would like to have in their classrooms for students. Last year, we placed $1,200 in orders and had 40,000 points!
Please email Mrs. Ellerbe with any questions: firstname.lastname@example.org
