Dear Parents,

I'd like to thank our families for their overwhelming generosity in supporting the Hurricane Harvey fundraiser last week. In one day the NJHS was able to raise $6,381 for the hurricane victims. These funds will be matched by the NCEA and sent to the victims in Texas. I'd like to recognize the amazing efforts of our NJHS members, to insure for the success of this important service initiative.

On behalf of our school community, I'd like to thank the following parents for catering and facilitating this year's STS room mom meeting: Mrs. Pattison, Mrs. Driscoll, Mrs. Latowicz, and our Room Mom coordinator, Mrs. McCarthy. A special word of thanks to our amazing 7th and 8th grade students who provided babysitting services for the children of our room moms. Thanks to all!

Last Friday, 9/15, our eighth grade students participated in the first middle school spirituality retreat of this school year. In the coming months all of our middle school students will participate in these important retreats to help them deepen their relationship with our Lord and grow in love in the Catholic Faith. If you would like to assist with one or more of these student retreats, please contact our guidance counselor, Mrs. Beth Henry.
 
This Thursday, 9/21 at 7:00 am, we will kick off our first All Pro Dad Breakfast of the school year, in the school cafeteria. All STS dads and their children are invited and encouraged to attend. 
   
STS is in need of quality substitute teachers. Subsequently, we will be hosting our first Substitute Teacher Job Fair on Thursday, 9/28 from 8:00 am till 2:00 pm.
The Saint Timothy PTO Board invites you to take this brief survey to help them with their planning efforts for the upcoming school year.  Please take the time to answer the questions which include your chance to VOTE for the 2018 AUCTION THEME to be held March 4, 2018 at the Dulles Hilton.  The survey will remain open until Sept. 28. Click here to complete the survey.

Thank you so much for your strong support of our wonderful school.

God Bless You,
 
Mr. Joseph M. McLaughlin

Clinic Update:   Many students were seen for colds with sinus headaches, stomach aches, and skins rashes/bug bites.  Some stomach aches were related to being hungry and skipping breakfast. Please make sure your child eats a healthy breakfast and lunch.  Before packing your child's snack, please be aware of classroom allergies posted on each home room web page.  All classrooms in our school are Peanut/Nut-Free.  
 
vision and hearing
Tomorrow is the annual STS Vision and Hearing Screening

Parental permission is required. Please return the blue permission forms by tomorrow. 
  
Many Blessings,
