Please plan to attend our PTO’s Parent Education Night on Monday, September 18 at 7:00 pm. Free babysitting is available! The topics of the evening will all be about St Joseph School and how it operates. We will cover everything from why we wear uniforms to how the school budget works. This is your opportunity to ask questions and give feedback to our PTO and School Council as they begin to set goals and plan for the year.
God continues to bless us with great volunteers. Tamme Lackey is volunteering in the lunch room on Fridays. We are excited to have her back in the building! Pam Read is coming to the building twice a week to work as a volunteer in our classrooms helping students with math and other subjects. Pam is a McPherson community member that believes in the work our school does and just wanted to help us out. Thank you Pam!
Over the next few weeks you will be asked many times to give of your time, talent and treasure to help us make Oktoberfest/pumpkin patch a success. Please be generous with all of the above because these are our only fundraising events during the year and the school relies on the profits to fund important items such as textbooks, technology updates, Chromebooks, and any extra items such as field trips. The links to volunteer to help are on the school website so please visit them and get signed up. There are many slots and EVERY PARENT needs to take more than one slot.
Picture Day is September 27. Students should wear to school their street clothes they want in the picture. They should bring their uniforms to change into after they take their pictures. Except, Kindergarten students do not need to change into their uniforms. They can wear their street clothes all day.
Can you believe it is midterm of the first quarter of the school year? Be watching for information about Parent Teacher Conferences that will be coming home soon!
