ONLINE ENROLLMENT FOR 2019-2020 SCHOOL YEAR:

posted May 6, 2019, 6:43 AM by Gary Clayton

Online registration and enrollment is now available FACTS Family.  Every family should have received an email on Wednesday, May 1st explaining how to log on and complete the online process.  All sections of the online enrollment packet must be completed in order for each student to be properly registered/enrolled for the 2019-2020 school year.

    In order for students to be fully enrolled, parents will need to log onto their ParentsWeb account (now called FACTS Family) and follow the instructions until all areas are completed with a green check mark.  There will be a $10.00 enrollment fee accessed per student.  This is a Facts Fee, not a St. Dominic fee.  Every family must also set up a payment plan in FACTS Financial.  Whether you are paying in full ($20.00 fee will be waived this year) or utilizing the Facts online payment plan ($50.00 fee to FACTS), a bank account or credit card must be linked.  We highly suggest parents do not bring in checks to the school office. A credit/debit card, or checking or savings account must be linked in your Facts Financial account.  

    Please know that St. Dominic is doing nothing different than the other Catholic grade schools.  Our goal is to make this as simple and easy as possible for our parents. As always, please call the school office with questions.

We will be in need of a head librarian for the upcoming 2019-2020 school year.  Our current parent, Amy Terstriep has been an amazing volunteer and huge help in our school library, but sadly she will no longer have a student at St. Dominic.  She has offered to work with and train the new librarian through the end of this school year. If you are interested, or if you just have questions, please contact the school office.  We would be happy to answer any questions. Thanks to all of our volunteer school librarians – Lindsey Allensworth, Anna Benz, Sheila Biggs, Sarah Gallagher, Christina Rose, Amy Terstriep, and  JoAnn Wolkitt -  for giving your time to allow our students to have the opportunity to check out books each week.  We are truly grateful for your service to our students and our school!
