Dear Star Parents and Families,
This week we have been working to fully integrate our new internet/Chromebook security system, “Securly”. The Securly program will help the school provide a safe internet experience while using the school’s Chromebooks. Unfortunately, we have noted that if a student accesses his/her school Google account on a home device, Securly is not able to offer internet protection. With this in mind, Father Lappe and the Sisters have recorded a video discussing the dangers of unmonitored internet access. Please take the time to view the video (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gD_yvq6IUkA&feature=youtu.be) Thank you Father and Sisters!
Next Friday is our annual SCOPE Auction! This year, of course, will be the first time we will conduct the auction completely online. Below is all the information you need to know about the auction and how you can participate. The SCOPE Auction is our biggest fundraiser and we really need your help to make the event successful.
Another SCOPE reminder: raffle tickets are due Monday, May 11th. Please drop off ticket stubs, unsold tickets and money at the Parish Office before 4:00 pm.
Exciting news...this year’s Talent Show will be online! Audition videos can be emailed to either Mrs. Powell firstname.lastname@example.org or to Sr. Daniela email@example.com no later than 3:30 pm on Monday, May 18th. The video should be no longer than 2 minutes and students must be dressed appropriately. If students would like to sing, the audition video must not have vocal accompaniment. The Talent Show show will be aired on May 25th.
Mr. and Mrs. Fletcher are working hard to finalize the School Yearbook. Due to the current situation, we have decided that placing a large school order would be too difficult to coordinate. Therefore, we will publish a link where families can order their own yearbooks. As soon as the final copy is ready we will send out more information about ordering. Please stay tuned!
Stay safe and enjoy your weekend! God bless!
