School Supplies

Many of you have been asking about school supplies. We are in the process of putting together a class-specific list of supplies and I plan to send that to you either later this week or early next week. For now, you can plan on spiral notebooks and pocket folders for each class and pens/pencils/highlighters for writing. On the first full day of classes, teachers will also let the students know the supplies they will need.
Parent FAQs
New parents and even returning parents have several questions this time of the year. Here is a Parent FAQ sheet to hopefully answer many of your questions. For additional questions, you know where to find me (309-533-2200!).
Freshmen & New Student and Parent Orientation
Freshmen, new students, parents of freshmen, and parents of new students make it a point to come to our N ew Student and Parent Orientation on Sunday, August 13 from 5:00 p.m. - 7:00 p.m. This is an informative introduction to life at Central Catholic. Our Student Ambassadors will help students with locker, computer, and schedule questions and much more. Parents will learn about academic, social, and spiritual expectations from Mr. Foster and have an opportunity for questions and answers. A light reception follows the presentations at approximately 6:30 p.m. We are aware of a conflict for some Epiphany families, and ask that you e-mail Mr. Lootens with any questions.
Mark Your Calendars for August 26:
