Our optional fundraising begins today and ends Oct 12th (disregard date on info sheet).  We have City Saver cards for sale and cookie dough.  All checks should be made out to St. Catherine of Siena ECEC.  Our school earns 50% of every sale!  This fundraiser will be going towards storage needs, playground equipment and improvement of science centers in the classrooms.  We appreciate all of your efforts!  If you see toys coming home they are most likely prizes from sales and your child DID NOT take a toy from the classroom! :)


Please note that classroom Halloween celebrations are on 11/1 not 10/31 as previously stated.
Attention!  We must have complete student files by Friday 9/27/19 or your child will not return to school on 9/30/19.  

This is a mandate from the Ohio Department of Education.  Unfortunately we are not permitted to make exceptions to this mandate as it will affect our licensing through ODE.  If you are having difficulty obtaining a piece of information for the file, please contact the office. 


 If your child started school AFTER 8/26/19, please know your deadline is 30 days after the first day of attendance.

For those who are not aware, Mrs. L has been diagnosed with breast cancer and will be undergoing treatment near the end of October.  We would like to provide meals, gift cards and letters of encouragement to her during this time.  If you would like to donate, participate or drop anything off to the office please do so by 10/21/19.  Mrs. L lives in Tecumseh Michigan so a typical meal train is not feasible but take out gift cards for meals would be appreciated.  She says she eats anything!  We love you Mrs. L and are behind you & beside you with prayers and support!
