A MESSAGE FROM MS. MARTENS
I can't say THANK YOU enough, to all of the parents, teachers, staff, and students who worked SO HARD to make this year's art show a success!  I couldn't have made it happen without the fantastic people who work to support the visual arts program at Summerville Catholic School.  Visual arts teach students essential skills in communication, collaboration, critical thinking, and problem solving,  I'm proud to see the SCS students thriving in a school that values and supports the visual arts and understands why they matter so very much!  

With gratitude,
Ms. Martens



CROWNING OF MARY
This Wednesday, May 2nd is the Crowning of Mary.  We will be crowning Mary during Mass. Families are invited to join us for this special tradition.  We are asking children to bring flowers from home for the ceremony.  



DRINK SALES
There will be NO drink sales this Friday, May 4th.  



TAG DAY
This Friday, May 4th will be tag day.  Students are allowed to wear non-uniform clothing in place of their uniform for a fee of 50 cents or $5.00 for the entire year. All monies collected for Tag Day are donated to a charitable organization. 

As a Catholic community, our attire should reflect modesty. 

Examples of inappropriate clothing are, but are not limited to:
  • Tops which are sleeveless, which do not cover the entire shoulder, or which have spaghetti straps 
  • Backless shirts/dresses that cover less than a uniform shirt 
  • Pajama tops or bottoms 
  • Leggings, jeggings, yoga pants 
  • Pants, shorts, and tops that are too tight; clothing should be loose fitting 
  • Skinny jeans 
  • Baggy styles are not permitted 
  • Shirts with a low scooped neckline 
  • Shirts not long enough to cover the waist and hips. When the shirt is tucked in and arms are raised above the head, the shirt should not come untucked. 
  • Shirts with inappropriate logos/pictures 
  • Skirts or shorts not knee length. *Knee length is defined by the hem of the skirt touching the CREASE AT THE BACK OF THE KNEE. 
  • Shoes with high heels, open backs or toes, sandals, Crocs 
  • Nail polish, makeup, or excessive jewelry
If students wear clothing deemed inappropriate, they will be told to call home for a change of clothing. Students having to change will lose their Tag Day privilege for the following month. A second TAG Day infraction will cause students to lose this privilege for the remainder of the year.



STAR WARS DAY
May 4th is known as Star Wars Day to many fans of the franchise.  "May the Fourth be with you" is a pun on the catchphrase "May the Force be with you".   If your student is a fan of Star Wars, feel free to have them show their Star Wars enthusiasm by wearing their favorite Star Wars shirt on Tag Day this Friday, May 4th.  NO COSTUMES ALLOWED.
