Dear Parents and Guardians:
As Catholic Schools’ Week draws to a close, I am, as always, filled with excitement about the education that occurs within our walls as well as those extra things that our children experience. You can feel the love and safety that each of our students is greeted with, as well as the feeling that anything is possible for these young learners and that there are no limits! I once again ask you to preach the good news of St. Stan’s throughout the community; so that others may benefit from the experiences that your child benefits from each and every day.
Report cards were handed out today. In some instances you will not see a midterm grade on the report card because it was not input in time for the printing to be done. Exams take a great deal of time to grade properly. All students know their grades and as the parent portal on Power School reopens tomorrow, you will be able to see the midterm grades in all subject areas. Please be sure to sign the report card envelope and return it to your child’s homeroom teacher. The actual report card is yours to keep.
Tomorrow during opening exercises, please join us for our awards ceremony and teacher rededication ceremony, as we celebrate our children and our teachers!
Finally, this is a reminder that this year, in order to fulfill the 180 school day requirements set forth by the state and incorporate snow days; our mid winter break is an abbreviated one. It will only be February 12, 13 and 16th. This was indicated on the school calendar sent home last June.
As always you remain in my prayers,
