“It’s faith in something and enthusiasm for something that makes life worth living.”

Dear Parents and Guardians:
Each day the teachers and faculty of St. Stan’s arrive enthusiastically to teach the children you have entrusted to us. It gives us great joy to do this and we hope that our enthusiasm for the subjects we teach and our love of our Lord, light a fire of enthusiasm in each student. Here are a few important reminders as we wind down for break.
- If your child will be dismissed from school in a manner different from their usual mode of dismissal, you must write a note and have your child give it to their homeroom teacher. Telephone calls to the school should be avoided, if possible, and emails should never be sent since there is no guarantee it will be read before dismissal.
- We are very excited as our Christmas Concert approaches! The concert is Monday, December 22, 2014 at 7pm. The doors will open at 6:30pm and students in kindergarten through 8th grade should report to their teachers on the bleachers. Preschool students should be dropped off in the preschool classroom.
- December 23rd is a 12 noon dismissal. It is also a dress UP out of uniform day. Students traditionally wear their outfits from the Christmas concert. There will be a 9AM school Mass for which we would love you to join us. The HSA serves students a breakfast after Mass this day and there is a 12 noon dismissal with NO After care.
- We return to school on January 5, 2015.
Wishing you the Peace. Love. Joy and Hope of this Advent Season,
