Weekly Notes October 23, 2017

I hope you are all enjoying this amazing weather!

In order to follow-up after report cards, we will have parent-teacher conferences on Wednesday, November 1 from 3:00-7:00 pm. Each conference will be 15 minutes long. This will give you an opportunity to see your child’s teacher on a one-to-one basis. I will also be available if you wish to speak with me. Please call the office and speak to Ms. Melissa to schedule a conference. We look forward to seeing you!

I am happy to announce that we will be having an information night on November 7 at 7:00 pm in the Community Center for the Blessed Margaret of Castello REACH Program that will begin in the 2018-2019 school year. Founded in 1962, the Special Education Program serves the Diocese of Baton Rouge by providing special education centers. This program serves both Catholic and non-Catholic students from the ages of 6 to 21 who have been identified with an exceptionality according to the Louisiana Department of Education, Bulletin 1508. Students who range from being on the spectrum to students needing lab services to remediating dyslexia will utilize this program. In 2016, the program grew to 63 students and for the 2017 school year the program is expecting 81 students.  We are so happy to welcome the program’s director, Ms. Bethany Robicheaux for this information night. Spread the word!

Our new student Ambassadors are busy preparing a “walking tour” of St. Elizabeth campus. The Ambassadors are putting together the order of the buildings that perspective parents/students and alumni will take when they come to the school. The tour will include the history of the school and church. We are so excited to begin this new venture.

If you haven’t noticed, look at the windows on the front of the Administration building the next time you come in. No more chips or cracks. They were replaced last week. We also installed filters on all of the water fountains to ensure that the water our students are drinking is of a high caliber. Notice that the front of the school is now well lit at night as the light on the pole across the street has been repaired.

Have a blessed week.
