Welcome Back and Happy New Year

TUITION MENTORS


Have you considered filing for financial assistance for your children's Catholic Education and failed to do so because the application process was overwhelming? If you answered yes to this question we would like to help!  Last year a city-wide committee developed a very successful process to help families complete and file for financial assistance and/ or apply for a tuition loan. Please contact your pastor or principal if you are interested in receiving personal assistance in completing the PSAS and/or school loan documents. Families who elect to have this assistance will be contacted by a "Tuition Mentor" for an individual appointment to complete financial support documents.

All names of participants and their financial information will be strictly confidential.  



DRESS CODE REMINDERS

Now that the cold weather is here, students are allowed to wear sweaters, sweater vests, crewneck sweatshirts, and fleece tops in approved colors over their regular collared school shirts.  The following (found on page 17 in the handbook) spells out what is allowed to be worn:

  • Sweaters, sweater vests, crewneck sweatshirts, and fleece tops in the solid colors of red, white, blue, black, and forest/hunter green may be worn , provided they are worn over the regular school shirt and are not hooded. (Notice that gray is not one of the allowed colors. Also, knit and nylon jackets are not part of the dress code to wear in the classrooms.)
  • The Official St. Dominic School sweatshirts may also be worn, provided they are worn over regular collared school shirt. (and are not hooded sweatshirts)

Students may wear long-sleeved school shirts. However, students may not wear long sleeved shirts under short sleeved school shirts.  The handbook states:  The sleeves must not be longer than those of the outer shirt.  If you want your child to have long sleeves, he or she may then wear a collared long sleeved school shirt or wear a sweater or sweatshirt over a short sleeved shirt.

Please also make sure that your children are wearing the allowed school shirt colors.  Only navy blue, light/ powder blue, red, black, white, and dark green (Hunter/forest green) shirts are allowed.  Turquoise blue, teal, marrow, and royal blue are not allowed as part of our dress code.

Thank you for following our Quincy Catholic Elementary Schools dress code.

  • LUNCH BALANCES Please check your student’s lunch balances by logging into Ascend.  From the Home screen, on the right side, you can see each of your student’s balances.  You can pay for lunches through Ascend, as well.  Every parent should also be receiving daily progress emails from our Ascend system.  This email shows your child’s grades, homework, and lunch balance.  There is also a link on the email that takes you right to the log in page for Ascend.  We have some students with fairly large lunch balances.  This takes away money from our lunch program, and we would greatly appreciate all lunch accounts being kept up to date.  If you have questions, please contact the school office.  If ...

  • EFFECTS OF POSSIBLE QUINCY PUBLIC SCHOOLS STRIKE If you are up on local news, you are aware that the Quincy Public School teachers and staff may go out on strike due to lack of an approved contract.  If negotiations between the board and the teachers’ union are unsuccessful, the teachers will strike this month, so the Quincy Public Schools will not be in session during their strike.  If that happens, St. Dominic School and the other Quincy Catholic Schools will continue to be in session as scheduled.  However, there will be no busing for our students, and our crossing guard will not be present.  Parents will need to arrange for transportation to and from school.  Our Before and After School Program is an option for families ...

  • K-8 CHRISTMAS PROGRAM The annual K-8th grade Christmas program will take place on Tuesday at 7:00 p.m. in the school gym. The doors will open at 6:00 p.m.   This year, the students and Mrs. Wood will present the Christmas miracle about the birth of Jesus. The program should last about an hour. Your student may wear whatever you would like them to wear, but it is always nice to see them so dressed up.  Please mark your calendars and join us for the retelling of the real reason we celebrate Christmas.  FYI:   If you would like to sit closest to where your student will be located, the girls will be on the right side of the gym ...
