Please note that all students will be required to have the Flu Vaccine by December 31st! To date, 38% of our student population have already received their flu shots! WELL DONE! Documented proof of the immunization is necessary, as we will hold those files on record for our reference.
Get your child(ren) immunized early, in order to adhere to the mandate!
There has been a slight increase in the number of remote learners since our return from the Thanksgiving break, and we are thankful for your vigilance and commitment to helping us to maintain a healthy school environment.
PLEASE NOTE that remote learners are expected to be on time, and in uniform for all virtual classes! Attendance is based on being present, prepared, participative and providing the daily completion of classwork.
We are blessed that
remote learning is always an option!
From the Office:
Still no word on Otis Spunkmeyer delivery, but we have been told to expect before Christmas.
A Word on Sweatshirts....
Open Windows = Chilly Classrooms!

PLEASE note that all sweatshirts being worn in classrooms MUST be either have the SFX logo, or be completely complimentary (plain maroon or gray) to the school uniform. Layering will be necessary in the colder months as we maintain ventilation!

Advent Families 2020
Our National Junior Honor Society will be "taking the reins" on our annual tradition of adopting families-in-need. Starting on Monday, our NJHS students will be visiting classrooms to introduce our students to the families who are in need of support. Our students and will pray for them, as well as collect gift cards (grocery/pharmacy/Walmart/Target) to assist them in their time of need this Christmas season. Thank you in advance for your support and generosity.. this rewarding opportunity to give to those less fortunate than ourselves is a great lesson for our children this Christmas!
The Foundation to Advance Catholic Education (FACE) has begun the scholarship process for the 2021-22 school year. The deadline for applying for a FACE scholarship is March 5, 2021. While it may be a bit early for some families to start thinking about the next school year, it is worth noting that 2020 tax documents are required to complete an application - and the current COVID pandemic may complicate tax filing.
Thank you for using our Extended Care program.

At this point in the school year, we have a pretty good sense of your consistent Extended Care needs and usage.
Pre-reservations will no longer be necessary, as we are never filled to capacity. Please continue to use the program for your child care needs, on the days that you desire!
Thank you!
** Please note that Extended Care invoices will continue to be sent every other Friday in the "Go Green" Friday Folder!
Thoughts, concerns?
Please contact the school office.
Called to be Disciples!
St. Nicholas of course!
Our students' shoes have lined the hallways as we await our annual visit from St. Nicholas! This school tradition is a wonderful "memory maker", as we celebrate the feast day of the saint we have to thank for the tradition of giving at Christmas.
On Tuesday, December 8th, our school community will virtually attend Mass that will be livestreamed into classrooms at 9am.
