During morning assembly this week, our eighth grade students shared several stories with our school about how to be kind in situations when it might be hard to make that choice. Sometimes it might mean we give up something to make someone else’s day a lot better. They helped us understand that sometimes being kind requires a sacrifice. This weekend, we will celebrate the leadership of our eighth grade class with our parish at St. Anthony Church during 4:00 p.m. mass.

WEATHER – RELATED EARLY DISMISSAL AND SCHOOL CANCELLATIONS
During the winter months, with the possibility of inclement weather or other emergency conditions occurring, it may be necessary to dismiss students earlier in the day than usual or to cancel school for the day. If this occurs, local radio and TV stations will broadcast the information. On days when such conditions exist, please listen to the local stations for early dismissal times and announcements of school closings. Listen for "Quincy Public and Catholic Schools . . .” Parents will also be contacted regarding school cancellation and early dismissals via a phone text through our FACTS Student Information System.
PARENT CONTACT INFORMATION – ARE YOUR CONTACT DETAILS CORRECT?
As you know, it is very important that the school has your correct contact information on file so we can communicate effectively. Therefore, please remember if you change any of your contact details ie: new cell phone number or email address, etc., please log onto the FACTS Family Portal where you can change/add this information or contact our school office so we can make the changes in the automated FACTS Family Portal.
