Tuition Care:

Help All K-8 Families Receive a $1,000 Tuition Refund

Bottom line: 

We have a goal for all K-8 families at SNS to receive a $1,000 tuition reduction through the TuitionCare program.

What to do? 

1) If you participated in TuitionCare last year, look for an email from the Foundation for Catholic Education. 

2) If you are new to SNS or did not participate last year, sign up here: https://www.tuitioncare.org/join-today

More information: 

SNS participates in the TuitionCare Program, which allows individuals to re-direct their Pennsylvania state taxes to support Catholic education. Last year, all K-8 SNS families received a $685 tuition reduction thanks to the program. Learn more at the the TuitionCare website or contact Mrs. Hennessy.

Technology Star Award

Congratulations to Third grade student Massis Norian for earning this school year's first Technology Star program award.

This program is also referred to as the Tech Star program. The program was created to acknowledge a student’s contribution that is beyond what was being taught in a lesson. Any student that Mr. DeSimone or Mr. Kaufmann teaches is eligible to get a Tech star in their Technology instruction class. 

The student is presented their Tech Star Certificate during the Morning Prayers Zoom. The certificate is taken home. In addition, a Tech Star is displayed in the Technology classroom for others to see. The star is taken home at the end of the school year.

To paraphrase Robert Browning,

A student’s reach should exceed their grasp, Or what’s an education for.
