From Mrs. Kurkiewicz, March 4th, 2016

We had a taste of warmer weather, but I know that I am ready for Spring to officially arrive.  I hope that all of our families are preparing for Easter in ways that are meaningful to you and your children.  The students have been experiencing the Stations of the Cross during Lent and some classrooms have been using the “Totally Lent” books to help the children understand this Lenten journey.

I would like to remind all of our school families that you should be taking advantage of our OptionC online system in order to stay informed about what your student is doing in school.   You will also find announcements about upcoming school events, information that may be helpful to you and your students, and the Saint of the Day is also available.   If you have forgotten how to access this online system please contact the school to get information on how to do this.

I would like to personally thank all families that completed our first annual “Parent Satisfaction Survey.”  These surveys will be used to determine what areas we are doing well in and also what areas we need to work on improving.   I will be going through all of the surveys personally and looking at how we are doing in all areas.  I will be responding to these surveys within the next few weeks.  Again, I truly appreciate the time all that completed the surveys invested in this process. 

The cold has been tough to deal with again these last few days, but each day brings us closer to Spring!  I try to notice that each day brings us just a little more daylight!  Take time on these cold, winter days to talk with your students about what they are learning and doing in school – it is a precious time that goes all too fast.

I hope many of you can take the time to enjoy all of the hard work that our middle school students have put into our musical.  The students do so appreciate when friends and family can take the time to see their hard work come together in a production such as this.

Please see Mrs. Kurkiewicz’s winter prayer in the right hand column.

From Mrs. Kurkiewicz, January 2016

I am excited to share our plans for the coming 2016-17 school year with all of you.  Due to our increasing enrollment, Fr. Ed, the teachers and I have been discussing the best plan to provide all of our students with a great learning experience. 

In order to do this, we will be working toward hiring 2 – 3 additional teachers with the plan to have Kindergarten through 4th grade all single grade classrooms.  We are also working with contractors in order to make some changes around the building to make space for these additional classrooms. 

This is an exciting time for our school and there are many changes in the works that we will hopefully be able to make a reality for the start of the next school year.  Of course all of these plans depend on our ability to hire the additional teachers and make the necessary changes in the building in order to create the additional classrooms needed.

I am excited to enter this next chapter with all of you.  Please don’t hesitate to contact me if you have any questions about the plans.  Also, please hold us in prayer as we work to make these changes a reality for our students.
