On Wednesday, FACTS sent out email invites to our school families with information on how to choose your tuition payment for 2018-2019 (paying in full or opting for a monthly payment plan.).  They sent the email to all families in our RenWeb system, so please disregard if your children are preschoolers, have graduated, or are not returning next year.  I emailed our families yesterday with an attachment of more specific directions on how to access FACTS through your Renweb Parent Portal.  Please select your tuition option on FACTS by June 15th.  If you have any questions or difficulties, contact the school office.

We are having a big push to sell our tickets and meet our goal.  As a reminder, we need to sell 1200 tickets to have the Big Prize Raffle and would love to surpass that amount.  We are counting on all the school and parish families to sell as many tickets as possible, and some really great incentives have been offered.  In order to qualify for incentives, tickets must be turned in by June 8.  Volunteer spots are still available. To sign-up, access the Junefest Sign-up Genius. We encourage the students to take on a shift in Kiddie Land, too.  Thank you for the support and positive energy. Let's hit our goal of 2000 tickets and have a fantastic celebration on June 16!   - The Junefest Committee

Mrs. Ellerman received a very generous financial gift of $1,000 from one of the class’s Vet’s Home buddies to use for 5th grade projects and needs.  The buddy is very appreciative of the program and the time the students have spent visiting the Vets each month during the school year, and wanted to show his appreciation in a special way.  Mrs. Ellerman is greatly appreciative of his thoughtful generosity, and will put the funding to good use.

Congratulations to Mrs. Katie O’Neal and Mrs. Nan Wood on being awarded grants.  Both teachers received grants from Mercantile Bank’s Banking on Youth Program for special projects.  Mrs. O’Neal’s grant will be used for materials for her students to use to crochet blankets for the NICU at Cardinal Glennon and make fidget blankets for Alzheimer patients.   Mrs. Wood is using her grant, as well as a Penny Power grant from Adams Electric Cooperative, to purchase Google computer textbooks for the students to use during computer classes.
