Old Man Winter is expected to take a break and promises to give us a warm weekend. I hope you all get a chance to enjoy it with your families.
The students will be working hard next week as those in grades 1-8 will be taking the Terra Nova Standardized tests. Please be sure that your child gets a good night’s sleep and eats a hearty breakfast to get those brain waves going!
Sometimes the fact that St. Stan’s School is such a “gem” becomes a well hidden secret! To spread this message we need your help as ambassadors. We are asking all of you to spread the word by explaining to your friends and neighbors your many reasons for sending your children to St. Stan’s. Our school community is strongly faith-centered. Our faculty is second to none and they reflect the values and message of Jesus throughout the year. Our students receive a top notch education at St. Stan’s not only because our courses are aligned with the Common Core Standards of New Jersey and our classes are equipped with the latest technology, but also because the children are able to witness and practice their faith in so many ways. Prayer is a major part of our school day as well academic excellence.
For the remainder of the school year we will be spreading this message through various channels. One way will be to hold two Open Houses for prospective parents to see for themselves this hidden “gem!” We ask that you help us spread the word by inviting your friends and neighbors to see what is happening here at St. Stan’s. The first Open House will be held Sunday, March 30th from 10:00 to 11:00 AM and the second will be on Thursday, April 3rd from 9:00 to 10:30 AM. Thank you for getting the word out to friends, neighbors and family members. Additional ideas to let prospective parents know about our school will be announced soon.
Please read the special note and request from me to consider volunteering to serve in one of the many capacities within our Home School Association (HSA) next year. There are so many ways you can be of service. The choices are described in both my Principal's Message or in the digital version of the White Weekly Folder.
Lunch room help is greatly needed in the days and weeks ahead so please see the email I send to you earlier in the week concerning this. We truly appreciate everyone’s commitment in this area.
Finally, the last day to register for the school year 2014-15 is Monday, March 31st, to avoid a late fee.
Enjoy your weekend.
Mrs. Patricia Graham
