The Borromeo Bulletin - #19

Home of the Bobcats: January 22, 2021

Thoughts from Dr. Voelkl, Mrs. Winkler and your SCB Faculty and Staff,

Happy Friday all!

We have been busy preparing and prepping for our upcoming Open House events. As part of this process our technology coordinator, Mr. Nguyen, has worked hard to update and refine our Saint Charles Borromeo School website. While he has made a number of updates and changes, we always appreciate feedback from our families. If you have a moment to take a look and let us know what you feel might be missing or what else you might like to see PLEASE send that information our way! It is also helpful to view on various devices including computers, i-phones and androids to see how it might load or appear in different ways.

Our students have been busy this week completing their winter round of AIMS web assessments. These assessments help us monitor growth and progress in the various strands under reading and math. Once we as an institution have had an opportunity to digest this data we will share these results with you.

Each time we go through this process it causes me to pause and reflect on the strengths and weaknesses of my own children. I have two children who LOVE to read and one who still fights me tooth and nail each time even their is even a suggestion that said child might want to pick up a book :-) Alas, I have yet to find the magic answer to this challenge but I do believe that like any other activity the more you practice the more you improve. If you have a child who is hesitant to read DO KNOW that you are not alone, also know that there is value in exposing your child to variety of print materials. I remember as a child sitting at the kitchen counter reading the back of the cereal box or as I got older reading the latest copy of TEEN magazine. If you are able to find magazines, articles, or maybe a book about your child's passions it might lead to at least a small step in fostering their enjoyment of reading. Stay tuned for some incentives and prizes from Mrs. Winkler and Dr. Voelkl for all of our readers young and old...

Continued prayers and blessings to you all. We look forward to continuing to grow together in faith and love ~

Dr. Voelkl

Water Bottles and Paper Towels

THANK YOU! We do not need anymore We try to keep a supply of water bottles with the nurse for students that may need it. Her station is starting to run dry from all the students that forget to bring their own water bottles. If you are able, we would love to restock her supply.

We are also very low on Paper towels. If you are able to assist with this, it would be greatly appreciated!
