Religion Book Blessing & Student Council Induction


Parents and friends are always welcome to join us for our weekly School Mass every Wednesday at 9:00 a.m., but this week is extra special! In addition to the annual Blessing of the Religion Books, we will also swear in our new 2019/20 Student Council members. Let's support our young leaders!

Do you have a 3- or 4-year-old at home? Know someone else with a little one

who didn't start PreK yet even though the child is old enough?

SAS PreK could be a wonderful first educational opportunity!

Keep Saving Box Tops!

Although the Box Tops for Education program is slowly phasing out the clippable Box Tops, many products still have them on their packaging--as long as they are not expired, we can still redeem them for cash! Please send them in to the school office as you get them. Meanwhile, if you haven't yet downloaded the Box Tops app and begun scanning your receipts, it's very easy, and the credit is applied nearly instantly; plus every receipt you scan in the month of September earns us a chance to DOUBLE our fall earnings check! Find instructions here. While there are still clippable Box Tops on the packages you purchase, we are able to receive credit for them TWICE by scanning the receipt and then sending them in physically!

Head Room Parents

Thank you so much to everyone who signed up to be a Head Room Parent! Your children will reap the benefits, plus, they are so excited to see their moms, dads, and other special people helping out. Our 2nd Grade class is still without representation--if you are a 2nd grade parent, will you please give the idea some more consideration? Head Room Parents automatically receive the full 15-hour volunteer credit for the year! Claim your spot here: 2nd Grade Head Room Parent
