Dear Star Parents and Families,
This week began the re-enrollment process for returning students. Please make sure that you do both the online re-enrollment as well as return the Tuition Worksheet and an Annual Fund pledge form. Both forms are included in the re-enrollment packet that was sent home last week. If you need more paperwork or help with your re-enrollment contact the office. Please be mindful that open enrollment begins in early March, completing your online re-enrollment and returning the forms as soon as possible will ensure you don’t lose your spot!
This week we also had parent-teacher conferences. If you were not able to attend a conference and want to speak with your child’s teacher, please contact the teacher directly to set up a time to meet.
After school clubs will begin next Tuesday, 18 February. If you have not yet registered for a club, you may still register until Friday, 21 February. All students MUST be picked up from their club by 4:00 pm. Students not picked up after this time will be sent to Star Care.
Next Thursday, 20 February, there will be no afternoon bus service. Our bus driver needs to be in Tacoma that afternoon. Which brings up the need for a second bus driver. If anyone knows of a person interested, or they themselves are interested, in driving one of our school buses, please contact the school office. We are looking for a second driver for the remainder of this year and beyond.
Upcoming SEP Trainings at Our Lady Star of the Sea Parish
February 21st @ 10:00 am in Parish Center Rooms 3 & 4
February 25th @ 6:00 pm in Parish Center Rooms 1 & 2
Childcare will NOT be available
*All volunteers must complete the initial Safe Environment Program training and then update this training every three years, online. Volunteers must also pass a background check prior to volunteering in the school.
Finally, Father has announced a change in the way tuition will be collected. If you are a practicing Catholic family you will be charged the in-parish rate, even if you do not attend Mass at Star or Holy Trinity. If you have questions about this change or about tuition as a whole, please contact the school office.
