“The Heart of St. Paul … Growing Together in Faith, Knowledge, and Virtue”
Dear St. Paul Families:
Thank you for great evening of Parent/Teachers Conference on Thursday. It was very well attended. It’s great to see our parents and teachers forming a partnership in the education of our students.
I have some exciting news to share with you. Beginning next year we will be having some additional pieces to our school uniforms.
• In preschool, we have added a one piece, a navy blue dress for the girls; along with our normal jumpers.
• For all of our students we have added a navy blue shirt, along with our white or gray shirts.
• The boys in Middle School only will be wearing khaki pants / shorts instead of our navy pants. This not will become a distinct change until the 2017-18 school year.
• Grades K-5 boys will continue to wear the navy blue pants.
• We will also be offering a Dry-fit version of our white, blue, and gray shirts for both boys and girls. I know the students love the dry-fit shirts and it will be a welcomed addition to our uniform.
I received Board approval and wanted to get this information out in case you are purchasing shirts or pants to finish out this school year. I know how quickly boys grow out of their pants.
This is a short week for us leading up to Thanksgiving. Please remember that Wednesday is a half day with a noon dismissal. The staff and I wish all of you a safe and restful Thanksgiving Break with your friends and families. We will see you back at school on Monday, November 28th. Until then,
With blessings from my heart,
HATS OFF TO / OUR VIRTUES IN PRACTICE:
~~ To our many parents that came to Parent / Teacher Conferences on Thursday evening. It was great to see the many people participate.
~~Mrs. Kaufmann – Mrs. Kaufmann provides a wonderful dinner for us each conference evening. The food was delicious and hit the spot. Thanks for remembering our favorite dessert!!!! It wouldn’t be conference night without it.
~~Jamie Clark and Chris Gresham – for the hard work on the American Flag displayed in our Parish Center hallway. Taking all of the those pictures and putting the flag together was a work of “love for St. Paul School”. Thank you for providing us with those little finishing touches that makes our school a place that is so special.
