Dear St. Anthony of Padua Families,
 
It’s official! One quarter of the 2018-2019 year is complete! The students and teachers have worked so hard. It has been a blessing to witness the teachers in action as your students learn new things. They are growing not only academically, but spiritually as well. I am very proud of their efforts. The teachers look forward to celebrating their successes at conferences this upcoming Thursday and Friday. May you have a wonderful weekend welcoming some cooler temperatures next week!

Only By His Grace,

Veronica Tucker
Principal

ROSARY MONTH

The Living Rosary will take place Oct. 16th at 8:15 a.m. in the piazza (weather dependent).
The month of October is dedicated to the Rosary, and after the Mass, the Rosary is the most powerful prayer at our disposal. St. John Paul II often said that the Rosary is a prayer of peace, and he encouraged families to pray the Rosary together. Please sign up for a day that your family will pray the Rosary together.
NURSE'S NOTES
From 10/5/18 to 10/12/18:

No illnesses to report. There have been a touch of gastric issues in a few classes that seems to be a 24-hour bug (mainly elementary).

RENWEB CHANGES
We wanted to make you aware of an upcoming change that may affect your usage of ParentsWeb or the RenWeb Home App. Four years ago, RenWeb was acquired by FACTS, and on Friday, October 12th, they are launching a new website together at FACTSMgt.com and rebranding the RenWeb company to the FACTS name.
 
What does this mean for you?
  • The way you log into your accounts will not change. Your usernames and passwords will remain the same.
  • You can still log into the RenWeb Home app, although you may see new colors and logos in the app.
  • If you currently go to RenWeb.com to access ParentsWeb, you will be able to continue doing so for a time, but you’ll want to start making the switch and logging in at FACTSMgt.com.
  • There are additional login instructions on the Parent Resources sheet that FACTS provided. It’s available here.
  • To avoid disruption of access to your account, we recommend that you update your password as soon as possible. Credentials and passwords saved within your browser will not automatically populate on the new site.
  • Please note that RenWeb allows 5 incorrect login attempts. After 5 incorrect attempts, your account will be locked and you will need to contact the school to reset your account. 

If the name RenWeb is going away, are any other names going away?  
Yes, but FACTS is taking a methodical process to the product name changes. The RenWeb Home app will continue to be called the RenWeb Home app. You can search “RenWeb Home” in the App Store or Google Play to find it.

The name ParentsWeb will be changing to FACTS Family Online . You will still login using the same credentials at FACTSMgt.com. When you go to FACTSMgt.com, you will select “Parent Log In” and then “FACTS Family Online (ParentsWeb).” See this sheet for more details.
 
Thank you for your flexibility and please contact FACTS if you have any questions regarding the change.
