The SNS Community Staying Connected
A few highlights from Catholic Schools Week 2021… Fr. Steve Albero noted during Sunday’s opening mass… “As we begin to celebrate Catholic Schools Week this week, we celebrate the fact that our school, all Catholic schools, teach our students to love one another, to respond to each other with care and dignity, and recognize their own power and authority within.”

SNS may have been closed for the first day of CSW, but our students were engaged in real life academics while creating snow angels for religion class, testing snowball velocity in math, and observing the melting point of marshmallows in hot chocolate for science.  Extra credit was given for random acts of kindness like shoveling driveways for neighbors.

Service Day is always the SNS students’ favorite day of CSW. This year, our students dug through their coin jars and flipped sofa cushions to bring in nickels to celebrate Peter C. and Rylee M., two children in the local community, who are undergoing treatment for cancer. It was truly our school’s honor to support Peter and Rylee and their families during SNS’ annual Nickels to Knock Out Cancer Event.

The HASA spoiled the faculty and staff with a catered lunch on Teacher Appreciation Day.  The teachers truly enjoyed the delicious meal and special treats. HASA turned right around to treat all the students to ice cream and water ice in celebration of Student Appreciation Day.

SNS had its own “Souper” Bowl celebration during CSW with the students donating 361 cans of soup to honor the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the Kansas City Chiefs. No matter who won Super Bowl LV on Sunday, the real winner is the St. Norbert Parish Outreach Program who received all the students’ soup donations.

Just a few reminders for inclement weather… While many different school district transportation departments serve our school, please remember SNS follows the Tredyffrin/Easttown School District (#854) for delays or closings.

If SNS is delayed and school district you reside in is open, you school district will not offer delayed transportation to school. Parents are responsible for transporting their children on these mornings. Afternoon transportation will be available at the usual time on these days.

If your school district has a two-hour delay and SNS does not, your student will be accepted as being “on time” when they are able to safely arrive at school.
If SNS closes early there will be no after-school CARES.

SNS will not have staffing at regular AM bell time when the school is on a delayed opening. Please do not send your child to school at the regular time if SNS is delayed or closed. For a two-hour delay, students should not arrive before 9:45 AM. There will be no supervision available before that time.

Please be sure to discuss your family’s plan for an unexpected early dismissal with your child/children. Every student should know the back-up plan for their family should SNS has to close early for inclement weather or other emergency. 

The MARCH LUNCH MENU was sent to all school families earlier this week. Please click HERE for the lunch menu. All lunch orders are due by Tuesday, 2/16.
If you would like to order your student a FAT TUESDAY DONUT for 2/16, please complete this FORM and return to the school office with payment in a envelope marked Fat Tuesday Donut. Donuts will be individually wrapped and come with a bottle of water.
Order forms are due Friday, 2/12.
In an effort to save time and paper, the ABSENCE FORM AND VOLUNTEER FORM can now be submitted electronically through the school website. These forms can be found within the Parent Portal under the General Forms tab.  
WAWA SHORTI HOAGIE COUPONS are perfect to use for lunches and dinners on the go. Save yourself a little time while supporting the 8th grade. Click HERE for an order form.
Ziegs Landscaping is offering a new community giveback program in which SNS can receive 30% of all of net proceeds from any school family who uses Ziegs Landscaping as their landscaping provider. Please click HERE for more information. 
Philadelphia Archdiocese has provided preliminary approval for spring sports to resume, albeit with some restrictions that are still being reviewed. As a result, the St Norbert CYO Track and Field registration is now open through mid-March.
We are proceeding with the registration process (albeit without a fee commitment) to gauge the level of interest in the program. Please note we remain uncertain of the format for the season, yet are having discussions regarding use of our regular venues and are hopeful we can proceed. At this time, we will plan for a start of the season in early to mid-March, and will provide updates to registrants as we become aware of new developments.
Masks and social distancing will be enforced, as well as additional protocols that will be shared once reviewed and a ‘final’ draft is available. We will incorporate protocols specific to our program, the Region, and the Archdiocese, and endeavor to meet the most current advisories available for our state and community.

We may also plan a Zoom conference call for those interested closer to the end of February to discuss how we may proceed and to answer any questions. Please click HERE to register using your existing account details or set up an account for those who may be new to this platform

Please note: there will be no fees charged upon registration. If prompted, please indicate that you intend to pay by check vs. credit card. Fees will be as follows and will be collected the first week of the season: K to 4th Grade: $30 and 5th to 8th Grade: $80
