STFOA Newsletter

Our weekly newsletter is a wonderful resource to stay in the loop. The newsletter is emailed out to families on a weekly basis. 

Dear Families,
Our bulletin is coming to you a day early this week, because tomorrow is a teacher in-service day.  The focus of our day is Christ in the Classroom and the Great Mysteries of the Catholic Faith.  We are looking to immerse ourselves in a thoughtful way into the grace that always and everywhere already surrounds us.  We hope to come away with more knowledge about the mysteries that animate our faith and a shared wisdom that will allow us to seek new possibilities for our spiritual lives and for the spiritual lives of our students.  Please keep us in your prayers.

Friday, October 19th, is our Harvest Festival.  Our event chairs, Brenda Reynolds and Kim Hornibrook, have been hard at work making sure that it will be, once again, wonderful! Your children are encouraged to dress in an appropriate Halloween costume.
Please be considerate of our youngest guests who are often scared by “evil clown” and “bloody face” costumes. If you haven’t purchased your child’s bracelet, it’s not too late.  Print, fill out and return with a check the form attached below. The bracelet will be returned to you in next Friday’s family envelope.  I look forward to seeing you there.

Conferences are October 24-26.  As you know, there will be no school. Thank you to all the families who returned their conference slips and who have set aside time to meet with their children’s teachers.  When our school and parents work together, our students are more successful.

Finally, conferences are only twenty minutes and are often scheduled back-to-back in order to make sure most families get their preferred conference time.  In order to make the most of your conference, please come on time, stay positive, be prepared to listen and to ask questions, and if you aren’t able to complete your conversation in the allotted twenty minutes, work with your child’s teacher to arrange another time to meet.  Thank you today and every day for allowing us to partner with you in your child’s education!

Peace and blessings,
Rosemary Leifer
