As I write this last update letter of the current school year, I am amazed at how quickly it has passed!
May was another busy month here at SSKCA. Our bowling trip was a huge hit with our students. The May crowning of the Blessed Mother at our First Friday Mass was truly beautiful. Our 3rd graders received their First Holy Communion at a wonderful celebration of the Mass. The Drama Club members did a fantastic job during their performances of Peter Pan.
The lucky winners of our May tuition raffle are:
Leonard Penalba Grade PK-3A
James Koslab Grade 6
Joshua Packard Grade 5
Emily Layden Grade 4
Adam Tyborowski Grade 4
Nicolette Falce Grade PK-4A
Congratulations to all!
Our May Cupcake Sale raised $242.00. The class that raised the highest amount through their Cupcake Sale this year was Grade 4, with a total of $393.00. Congratulations!
SSKCA students in grades 1 – 8 will be taking their final exams the week of June 6-10. Teachers in those grades have sent home reminders of topics that will be covered on the exams so students know exactly what needs to be reviewed.
Our annual Family Fun Day will take place on Sunday, June 12th, as a celebration that finals are done and summer vacation will begin soon! However, we are still in need of parent volunteers for the event. If you need additional hours for this year or just would like to lend a helping hand, kindly sign up on the sheets outside of the school office or email me and I will add your name to the list. This is our last fundraiser of the year and a popular event with our students but it can’t be a success without the assistance of our parents. Also, since we are not having a June Cupcake Sale on a school day, we are asking moms who love to bake to donate cupcakes or donuts, etc. for Family Fun Day because those are the kinds of baked goods that the children enjoy most. If you are able to help us with this request, kindly complete the attached form and return it to school by Monday, June 6th.
There will be no school on Tuesday, June 14th, so that our faculty may have their last required Professional Development Day of the year.
On Friday, June 17th, we will have a Uniform Swap for interested parents from 8:00 am until 6:00 pm. If your child has outgrown their current uniform and you would like to swap it for one in a larger size, you are welcome to bring any laundered, gently used uniforms and exchange them for larger ones.
Monday, June 20th and Tuesday, June 21st will be half days of school with regular early dismissal. On Monday, we will be attending Mass at 10:15 am to offer thanks for the Lord’s many blessings throughout the school year as well as pray for a safe summer for all. Wednesday, June 22nd, is the last day of school for grades 1 -7. On that day, students will go up to their homerooms to receive their report cards and then come down to the auditorium for our traditional end of year awards. They will be dismissed at the conclusion of the presentations. Parents are invited to join us at the Mass as well as at the awards presentations.
During the summer, our Computer Lab will undergo a major renovation, including replacing the student desktop computers with updated all-in-one models. As a result, if anyone is interested in purchasing one of the current computers for a fee of $100.00 for tower only or $150.00 with monitor, keyboard and mouse, kindly call the office and let us know so we can put one aside for you. The computers are only 4 years old and have Intel Core i5 processors. If you need more info about the specific specs, please email me and I will gladly provide those details. The computers would be available for pick-up as of June 22.
We pray that the Lord will be extra good to us by keeping temperatures comfortable during these remaining weeks of school, especially when the students will be taking their final exams. Then we pray that all who are part of our SSKCA family will enjoy a much deserved, wonderful summer vacation and return in September refreshed and energized for a new school year!
