We have successfully wrapped up another week of school. Our seventh graders prepared an amazing video prayer service for us about archangels.
Unfortunately, our community received terrible news that our aftercare program, Champions, which was slated to begin on Monday, October 4th, has been unexpectedly delayed. We are actively seeking all possible solutions and alternatives to help our families have access to quality aftercare for their students as soon as possible. We hope to have more information to share soon. To assist us in meeting the greatest needs for our families quickly, please click here to fill out a Google form on the care your family needs.
We are blessed to have a supportive community during this challenging time. Along with securing proper fitting masks for your student, please send them to school with extra masks. We appreciate the patience and understanding our families have demonstrated as we work together to keep our students safe.
With the rainy, cooler weather beginning, please send your child to school with a coat every day. We will often play outside in light rain, so please help your child to be warm by sending them with a coat and school uniform sweatshirt. Non-uniform sweatshirts may be worn outside but not for working in the classrooms. We have talked as a staff and will ‘pilot’ an additional uniform option. For the remainder of this year, parents may purchase one of two uniform royal blue fleece full zipper coat options- one option is in cobalt blue from Land’s End Uniform or another option will be in royal blue from Dennis Uniform. We prefer the school logo at the left hand corner of the fleece coat. However, due to the current delivery delays across many sectors, we will not require the logo this year. If you have St. Ignatius sweatshirts in good condition but too small for your student, please send them in for the uniform exchange closet. As we ease back into wearing uniforms and following the uniform guidelines, teachers will begin sending uniform reminder emails to families requesting assistance with uniform compliance. Thank you for taking the time to make corrections with your student as needed.
Our St. Ignatius School Foundation golf tournament is tomorrow, October 2nd. We look forward to seeing many of our families who have registered to participate in or volunteer for this fun event.
We are looking forward to another week full of learning, stretching, and growing!
“Now may God himself, our Father, and our Lord Jesus direct our way to you, and may the Lord make you increase and abound in love for one another and for all, just as we have for you.” - 1 Thessalonians 3:11-12.
Peace be with you,
