Welcome back!

We hope you had a wonderful Christmas break filled with peace, love and family.  As students return to class, please understand that it may take them a little bit of time to get back into the routine.  There may be tears, fatigue and apprehension toward school.  This should pass quickly as your child gets back into the routine.  Please reach out to your child's teacher if you are concerned about anything.
Welcome new students!

Kindergarten registration typically begins in February and March for many area Catholic Schools.  We will be offering an information night for Most Blessed Sacrament and Regina Coeli schools. Please come and meet both principals and hear about Kindergarten screening, tuition, academics and various other things offered by each school.  Please answer the survey which is coming home in PK student folders so we may set a night and time that is convenient.  Even if you don't think that you can afford a Catholic School, the information night will cover ways that may make attending a Catholic School a possibility for your child.  
Catholic Schools Week Kick Off

The Toledo Walleye are excited to welcome schools from the Toledo Catholic Diocese to kick off Catholic Schools Week! Discounted tickets are available for all families of the school and parish, as well as their guests! Schools and Parishes will be seated together for this event as the Toledo Walleye take on the Rapid City Rush.
Martin Luther King Jr. Day- NO SCHOOL

There will be no school on 1/21/19. If you are interested in signing your child up for care on that day, please obtain a sign up form from outside of each classroom, the office or the extended day room
Changes to the Extended Day Program!!!

Beginning in January, the PK students will be in the basement playroom between 3-4 PM.  The 3 and young 4 year old students will be in the Extended Day program room. After 4:00 PM, all students will be in the Extended Day room.

Please note that the Extended Day program closes at 6 PM.  All students must be picked up by this time.  Student accounts will be assessed a $1/minute fee for any late pick ups after 6.  If your child utilizes PFCC benefits this fee will transition to a private pay fee covered by you.
