Weekly Notes August 20, 2018

“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”

 We are working with Option C to enable you to log on to the site. The company changed its privacy policy and Ms. Melissa does not have the same administrative capabilities as she once had. She is in the process of manually inputting all of your email addresses in order for you to be able to change your password and log on. Therefore, it is imperative for you to contact her if you should change your email address. We will let you know as soon as the problem has been fixed. Thank you for your patience.

When we use Remind to send out messages we only have 144 characters to use. That is why sometimes the messages almost seem like they are in code! And sometimes, certain messages only pertain to certain grades. So, we are putting together class email lists. This will allow us to send more detailed messages, tailored to those who need to receive them. We will still use remind but for shorter, school-wise messages. So please remember to check your email.

Please be sure to return the student/parent handbook form as well as all the other paperwork that was sent home at the start of school.

If you would like to complete an application for free/reduced lunch please go to www.myschoolapps.com Please note that if you participated in this program in the past, you must go on the site and complete the paperwork for this year. It does not carry over.

We are in the process of testing students to determine their AR level. Remember that AR will no longer be counted as a grade. The program was never designed for that but rather to have your child read for 20 minutes every night and have them learn to like to read.

There are times when the day we have mass may change. Please be alert to Remind and/or email. It is important for your child to be in proper uniform on Mass days.

Have a fantastic week!
