“The Heart of St. Paul … Growing Together in Faith, Knowledge, and Virtue”

Dear Parents,

Welcome Back to all!!!
It’s the beginning of April and we have about 7 ½ weeks of school left. The school year is flying by. During the next few weeks’ decisions will be made about our staffing. Thank you for sending in your registration promptly; if you have not, please send it in as soon as possible. I am basing all of the staffing decisions on the number of students who are completely registered. Father will be handing teachers contracts on Friday, April 15th.

We will be starting our parent book study this Wednesday after Mass. If you are interested in joining us, we have room for a few more people. I have copies of the book for loan. Send me an email and I will save a copy for you.

This week all of the students at St. Paul will be involved in a class offered through National Council of Alcohol and Drug Awareness. This organization conducts free classes for students in the St. Louis area. The classes will be dealing with the topics of friendship, self-regulation, self-advocacy, accountability, and positive self-image. Each class is once a week, 40 minutes in length, and will be held during the month of April. This is an excellent program for our students and I am very excited to be able to bring it to St. Paul.

Now that we are in month of April and the temperature going up the boys and girls are permitted to wear shorts to school. Please review the dress code in the handbook before you send your students off to school. Remember that the shorts are Bermuda length.

In closing, I would like to remind you of the dismissal policies. I was notified by neighbors that children were running across the street to meet their parents outside of the parking lot. Although we cannot control people parking outside of the parking lot, please remember that the children are not permitted to cross the street on their own. I have witnessed a few close calls and it made my heart skip a beat. Parents must meet them in the parking lot if they are to cross over to a side street. Our teachers are involved in our standard dismissal duties and are not available to act as crossing guards. The purpose of our dismissal procedure is to keep our students’ safe and crossing that particular street at dismissal without supervision is not safe for students. Please remember that if you are in a time crunch and need to get your student early, you may always come to the school office and sign them out a few minutes early. Until next week,

With blessings from my heart,
Fran
