Dear Star Parents and Families,
What a great week we’ve had! Catholic Schools Week started on Sunday with our students speaking and serving at the Masses. A great big thank you to the students who participated …you did a fantastic job! The Pancake Breakfasts went very well also! Thank you to Courtney Froehlich, the Parents Club, parent volunteers and the students who helped make the breakfast a success. The remainder of the week was equally eventful, and the students seemed to be having a great time! With your help, the school was able to donate 1,275 pounds of food to the St. Vincent de Paul food pantry. Thank you so much for your generosity! The Kindergarten class won the competition for the most food collected by a classroom. They will be treated to an in-class movie with popcorn.
Next week we begin the winter MAP testing in grades 2nd – 8th. Testing will occur during the mornings, and the teachers will be trying to ensure that students have a minimal amount of homework so the focus can be on doing well on the tests. We ask that you help us with our efforts by making sure your child comes to school well rested, eats a hearty breakfast, and arrives on-time to class so that they don’t miss any testing time.
Again, thank you for the time, talent, and treasure you give to us here at Star!
