08-05-2022Notes from the PrincipalMrs. Jamie Bescak

Dear Parents,

It has been a week filled with faith, unity, and excitement as we prepare for the 2022-2023 school year. Our faculty and staff attended a full-day retreat at Mt. Claret on Wednesday, reviewed school guidelines, safety protocols, and required trainings on Thursday, and attended sessions on best practices for classrooms with their Professional Learning Communities (PLCs) today — all while setting up their classrooms and getting ready for Monday’s big event. Teachers can’t wait to meet each of their new students at Meet the Teacher this Monday, August 8, 4–6PM.

Your first stop will be the MPR to make sure your RenWeb and FACTS accounts are completed, and you have filled out the following back-to-school forms: 

  1. Health Information Card

  2. Parent/Student Handbook

  3. Financial Agreement 

When all required items are completed, you will receive an envelope with your child’s new class assignment. Used uniforms will be available for purchase (cash or check) at deeply discounted prices. Then you may proceed to your child’s classroom and meet the teacher. We encourage you to bring your child’s classroom supplies (see list below) at this time to ease the hustle and bustle on that first day. 

And on that exciting first day of school, we will attend Mass all together again! Families are welcome to join us at 1:30PM as Fr. James leads our K–8th students in a Eucharistic procession around the school campus and then into the MPR for Mass. Students are asked to wear their “Mass uniform” (white polo) on the first day of school. We will also attend Mass on Friday at 8:15AM, in which all students are required to wear their Mass uniform. Please see the dress code for further details. 

Enjoy your last weekend of summer! I can’t wait to see you on Monday at Meet the Teacher! 

Joyful Blessings,
Jamie Bescak, M.Ed., Principal
