We have successfully wrapped up another week of school. Our sixth graders prepared an
outstanding outdoor prayer service for us about our foundress, Blessed Mother Marie Rose,
and our school’s mission.
We are pleased to announce a partnership with Vermont Hills Family Life Center to provide
before school and after school care for our families beginning on Monday, October 18th. Before
school care will begin at 7:30 AM and after school care will extend to 6:00 PM. If your family is
in need of this service, please register through Vermont Hills Family Life Center. Families may
apply for financial assistance for before school and after school care through Vermont Hills
Family Life Center as well. Vermont Hills has previously provided excellent care for St. Ignatius
students and is looking forward to the opportunity to work with our current students and
families. Families may attend a “Meet and Greet” event to meet the Vermont HIlls Family Life
Center instructors next Thursday, October 14th from 3:30-4:30 in front of Dillon Hall. Before
school and after school care will take place in Dillon Hall in the Xavier room and cafeteria.
Students in after school care will spend their time enjoying a healthy snack provided by
Vermont HIlls Family Life Center, completing homework assignments, playing indoor and
outdoor games, and choosing between a variety of educational activities.
We are fortunate to have hired a new preschool teacher as well. We will host a “Meet and
Greet” for our preschool families at our playground on Thursday, October 14th from 3:30-4:30
to meet both new preschool teachers for this year. We are still searching for a middle school
math teacher. We are fortunate to have Megan Olson available to continue to take on this role
as a long term substitute. Please pray for us to find an outstanding middle school math
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.
As the mornings become colder and the rains return, please send your child to school with a
coat every day. We often eat snacks and play outside, even in light rain, so please help your
child to be warm by sending them with a coat and sweatshirt. Non-uniform sweatshirts may be
worn outside but not for working in the classrooms. 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.
As we head further into October, you may be thinking about gift shopping. Please consider
using Amazon Smile to place orders as you can select St. Ignatius School to receive support
from dollars spent through Amazon Smile throughout the upcoming holiday season.
We are looking forward to another week full of learning, stretching, and growing!
