Dear St. Thomas Families, 
A Dr. Seuss quote, "The more that you Read, the more things you will know.  The more you learn the more places you'll go!" 
Our students in grades 1-7 have completed their initial        I-Ready Reading Diagnostic assessment and will begin instruction on Friday, September 23, 2016.  Teachers will soon begin communicating your child's test scores.  The report will highlight student progress; discuss target area of growth, instructional steps to support your child in the classroom and at home.
Seems like school just began yesterday when in fact, we are half way through the first quarter. Please visit ASCEND and review your child's grades.  Still time to submit any missing work and to communicate with the teacher(s) before the end of the first quarter, which is October 19th.
Mark your calendars for the 12th annual diocesan Eucharistic youth retreat - Youth 2000. The program includes daily mass, Eucharistic adoration, prayer, live music and good food. Youth 2000 is open to Catholics ages 13-30. The program will take place on October 7-9, 2016, at Notre Dame Academy.  For more information visit their website at 
The Jr. High Academic League is scheduled to begin October 4th and will meet after school through December 14th.  The coaches this year are; Mrs. Jennie Scola, Mr. Mike Scola and Mr. Brett Stevie.  A flier was sent through an email blast to the parents this week and a hard copy was distributed to the students in grades 6-8 with additional information about the league. 
With our theme "Let your Light Shine", each month a member of our parish/school community will be recognized for their "countless hours of time, talent and treasure".  For a thorough explanation about this recognition, please refer to the flier located in the school Wednesday folder. 
In the Campbell County Championship Cross Country Meet on Tuesday, September 20th, St. Thomas School boys came in 2nd place and the girls came in 3rd place.  Congratulations Tomcats!
A prayer chain is being created for anyone who has an individual you would like for us to keep in our prayers. Please keep Mr. Ron Dawn, Principal of Newport Central Catholic in your prayers for a speedy recovery.
Have a blessed week.

A beautiful day gives way to 1st graders as they visit the front walkway of the church. They  learned about their Parish Church and drew a picture in their Religion book.

Mr. Charles Marks: 
In honor of the Canonization of Saint Teresa of Calcutta, the 5th-8th graders participated in a  "Canonization Challenge". The challenge was a competition to bring in the most items for the flood victims in Louisiana. In total over 500 items were collected! We had students who asked their neighbors to join in, we even had a group of 6th grade girls who left one of their birthday parties for a while to go out to their neighborhood and ask for donations!

St.Teresa of Calcutta, pray for us!

Vocation Prayer

Most High, Glorious God, enlighten the darkness of our minds. Give us a right faith, a firm hope, and a perfect charity, so that we may always and in all things act according to Your Holy Will.
