End of Second Quarter and Other Items

As a reminder, school will be closed this Monday 1/18/2021. Students have worked hard all quarter long and the goal is to have the Second Quarter report cards printed and distributed on Friday 1/22/2021. We had a great time yesterday hosting the Museum Center and the Awesome Animal Adaptations presentation for grades K-4!

Students will continue completing the STAR Reading and Math Assessments for our Winter Benchmarking period this coming week. Our hope is to have your child's report included in the Report Card envelope.

Lunch Menu Changes: Tuesday 1/19: Chicken nuggets INSTEAD of Chicken chef salad

Friday 1/29: Dayton Pizza Factory INSTEAD of Stuffed crust pizza.

Families are encouraged to log into FACTS and apply for the Catholic Education Fund. You can learn more about this program created and funded by the Archdiocese for all families to use to access our schools. Please visit to learn more!

We will celebrate Catholic Schools Week beginning with our Open house on January 31st from noon to 2:00PM. This is an opportunity to celebrate our school, mission and the students hard work. While we want everyone to attend, we do ask that families with last names beginning in A-M attend between noon and 1PM with N-Z attending between 1PM and 2 PM.

This past week our computer teacher and Intervention Specialist were quarantined for exposure. No students tested positive for COVID-19, and a total of 13 students were quarantined for exposure outside of school.

Yearbook Photo Submissions!

SFDS Yearbook Photo Submissions Great photos of our students, staff and school events are the building blocks needed to design a beautiful yearbook. We are asking parents and staff to email any awesome photos they take throughout the year to our yearbook website. To make it as easy as possible, each grade will have a unique email for submitting any pictures related to that class. Another unique email will be used for miscellaneous photos or whole school events. You can use the subject line of the email to describe the event or student’s names.
