Are You Ready for 2018-2019?
We are half way through the 2017-2018 school year and it’s already time to start thinking about next year! We are excited for another event filled year with lots of learning and spreading our wings. It’s hard to believe that I will begin my 5th year in September!
Please take a moment to read the letter from Father Fred as we prepare for registration. Registration Forms and Tuition Information will be emailed home and available on the website. We have a simpler registration form for Returning Students and a separate application for returning students. Please make sure to update any address and phone number changes.
We currently have wait lists for several classes and would like parents to re-register as soon as possible but if you know for some reason your child will NOT be returning next year, please let Mrs. French know as that may open up a spot for someone else.
There will be a Kindergarten Open House for our current preschool families on Tuesday, January 30th from 4:30-5:30 in the Kindergarten Classroom. We invite you to come meet Mrs. Saladini and Mrs. Abad as well as learn all about the curriculum and K program.
