Parent Memo April 17, 2023

St. Helena Primary School


Principal's Message

Dear Parents,

It was so great to see you all at our Open House/Spring Concert! I was pleased to see so many of our families come together to see their child's classrooms as well as listen to the music performances. Great news, our music teacher, Mr. Binder, now has risers! This means that when we have a school performance, you will be able to see your children much easier! We are approaching the end of the school year! It is hard to believe it is almost over. We still have some fun family events before our last day of school! Make sure to check out all of the dates and fliers below!

Food Collection

We are working with the SHHS Interact Club to collect non-perishable food items from 3/13-4/30. The SHHS Interact Club is working with the St. Helena Food Pantry to help get food to many of our families in St. Helena. We appreciate all donations! You can send items with your child or drop them off in the bin on site!

New - Parent Computer Workspace at SHPS!

Parents, we have created a corner in our office for parents to come and use a computer for personal or school (child) use. We know that in order to access many programs for your children, you need to sign up online. You are welcome to use our new parent space to access the internet! We have a desk, computer, and supplies for you! You also have the opportunity to print things if necessary. If you need assistance signing your child up for a program, we can help you.

Collecting Toys for Día del Niño

If your house is anything like mine, you could probably collect 10-15 small toys that your children would never know were gone! We are collecting used, resuable small toys for our Day of the Chlid celebration in April. Lego sets, small stuffies, Happy Meal type toys, pencils, erasers, you name it! If your child once liked it, then others will too. Let's celebrate Earth Day as well as Day of the Child by rounding up small trinkets that can be passed on! Please send in your bag of goodies to your child's teacher or, if you'd like to be a little more sleuth, drop them off in the school office!
