Before and After Care Program

Good afternoon, St. Dominic School Family,

At this time, there are several important updates to send out to families including Before and After Care Program information and registration forms. Since all of our Summer Updates and Parent Newsletters are sent by email, I will separate the topics into separate emails this week. I am hoping this will help you with organizing the information.

At St. Dominic School, our students and families benefit from the supportive before and after school extended care program that we offer daily from 6:30 to 8:00 a.m. and 2:30/3:00 to 5:30 p.m. Our program for the 2020-2021 begins on Monday, August 17th with before care only, since it is a half-day of school with dismissal at 11:30 a.m. If you are interested in enrolling in the Before and After Care Program for services this school year, please read the letter (here) from our Program Director, Mrs. Karen Wellman, the handbook, and complete the registration forms. In addition to the Before and After Care Handbook, please review the attached information that was sent out in the St. Dominic School Reopening Plan regarding the new health and safety procedures.

Please return the enrollment forms at the school office by emailing the completed documents to nboone@stdominicquincy.org , dropping off the forms at the school office, or dropping off in the student's classroom at the Back To School Bash on Sunday, August 16th. If you do not plan to use the services on the first day of school, you can send the completed registration forms back to school with your student on Monday, August 17th.

Thank you for your time and consideration regarding our Before and After Care Program.

Sincerely,

Mrs. Carol Frericks

Principal

St. Dominic School of St. Anthony of Padua Parish

Back to School Bash, Welcome New Staff Members, Preschool Orientation

Good afternoon, St. Dominic School Family!

Oh what a beautiful week to play outside and enjoy the lovely weather with family and friends! There seemed to be a hint of fall in the air this week, reminding us that the seasons will be changing soon. We would like to wish a very Happy Birthday to the following members of our St. Dominic School family who celebrated August birthdays this week. Please enjoy this Birthday Cha Cha Cha for now until we can do it together again at school.

Mrs. Leah Waters, Sierra B., Jack O., Addison S., Lawrence B. and Toby S.

Back-to-School Bash: On Sunday, August 16th, the PTO is hosting a Back-to-School Bash to kick off the new school year. The event will begin with Mass at 4:00 p.m. on the grass in front of school. Please bring your own blanket or chairs for your family so we can spread out on the lovely front lawn under the trees. School families and parishioners are welcome. Students should bring their school supplies for the Blessing of the Backpacks. From 5:00-6:00 p.m., the Junefest Big Prize Raffle drawing will be held. Students are invited to their classrooms to drop off supplies and meet their teachers; then pick up a welcome gift from the PTO. What a wonderful way to begin this new school year! Please join me in praying for lovely weather and safe conditions so we can follow through with our plans to come together and celebrate mass. Hope to see you there!

Playground Project Appreciation

Good afternoon, St. Dominic School Family!

As we prepare for the upcoming school year, we have so many people to appreciate for their stewardship. Today, let's give thanks to the people who gave their time, talent and treasure on our playground project this summer. When we asked Ken Klauser and Jon Dabney if they could refresh our playground with some pressure washing and painting, they willingly volunteered to enlist a small group of people for this stewardship project. These thoughtful people remind me of a popular quote from Margaret Mead, "Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful people can make a difference; indeed, it's the only thing that ever has."

Thanks SO MUCH to Mike Baker, Lydia and Tim O’Neil, Ellie Price, Jon Dabney and Ken Klauser for completing the playground project. They pressure washed the concrete on the south side of the school building so new paint would stick to the clean cement on the kickball diamonds and the hopscotch area. Then, they added several new 4-square games to the playground. Lydia and Tim O’Neil are the artists who, along with Ellie Price, are responsible for drawing and painting the numbers on the new 4-square games. They also pressure washed the south overhead steel of the school to give it a freshly painted look and are finishing on the north and west sides of the school this week. A special thanks to the PTO for their generosity by paying for all of the paint and supplies for the project. The playground looks absolutely AWESOME! It is just what we needed to refresh the playground and the overhead steel pressure wash makes it look BRAND NEW!

We genuinely appreciate the amazing stewardship of our school family. Thank you so much and God bless you for sharing your time, talent and treasure with our school. Please see the attached pictures of the results of their amazing stewardship.

Sincerely,

Mrs. Carol Frericks

Principal

St. Dominic School of St. Anthony of Padua Parish
