Monday Minute - Extended Edition
Happy Monday,

We are all looking forward to having a regular week! I appreciate everyone giving eLearning a try last week. The staff and I are reviewing how things went, and I will be sending out a few reminders and clarifications soon. As a reminder, all eLearning assignments should be done by Wednesday.

We will be rescheduling our Volunteer Appreciation Mass and Breakfast and will share that date with you as soon as we can. Below you will find additional updates and reminders

Have a great week!

Peace,

Ed Seib

Special Catholic Schools Week Protector Donation
Mary Queen Of Heaven Missionaries

On November 7th, Sister Irene from Mary Queen of Heaven Missionaries came to talk to the middle school about her amazing vocation story and how she lives out Jesus’ mission everyday by helping children and their families in the Philippines.

The Sisters of Mary Queen of Heaven’s Mission:
To provide an education for children living in the Philippines who
suffer from extreme poverty and are in need of a safe place to live.

How can we help:
Raise money to sponsor a child
$300 raised = one child gets an education with all needed resources
Donate vitamin c gummies, baby and toddler clothes and toys, kitchen item- ladles, silverware, trays, etc.

We will be collecting donations again this week due to last week's eLearning days. All material donations may be placed in the large cardboard box in the lobby.

THANK YOU!!!
Your donations are going to a great cause!

From the 8th Grade
Flu Season, Drop Off, and Pick Up
Winter is upon us and that means flu season. It is crucial that you err on the side of keeping your child home if they are feeling sick. Click here for more information regarding symptoms, how long you are contagious, prevention, and care.

Winter can also lead to drop off and pick up changes and delays. In the mornings, please only drop off your child/children in the drop off line. Do not park in the lot and have them walk across or drop in between the church and Tuohy Hall. This creates a safety risk and would be unsustainable if everyone did it. Finally, be on the lookout for daily updates regarding our cold weather dismissal pick up.

CYO Sports Registration Change
Starting February 1st, we will be switching to a new registration site for CYO sports. The new site will allow us to keep track of the players and teams better, and most importantly, it will allow each coach to have a team page and post practices, notices, and rosters. The sports committee is excited for all the new features this site will allow us. One big change will be that you will have to pay when you register. This will streamline the process for the sports committee and alleviate having to remind people to pay. 

Spring sport registration (softball, baseball, track, co-ed soccer) is due February 20th, so please use the new site to register once it is live. We have added co-ed soccer as a new sport this year. If you have already registered for any of these sports, that is fine. You don’t need to do anything. If you haven’t paid for these sports but already registered, then please use the regular method through the parish giving site. 

After February 1st, you will no longer register through the orgsonline site to register for sports.  If you have any questions about the new registration please email  jennifer@woodthompson.com . For general sports questions, please email  brant.yeskie@4086.com
Safe and Sacred Reminder for all Volunteers
The Archdiocese has asked us to make sure that all adults who volunteer in the school (for field trips, playground duty, etc.) are trained and certified in Safe and Sacred. With field trips coming up soon, we wanted to remind anyone of this training.

If you have not done Safe and Sacred training, you can find it on the Archdiocese of Indianapolis website (or, click here -   https://safeandsacred-archindy.org/login/index.php ) You will need to either log in or create a new account, then watch the videos and answer the questions that go along with them. There is also a background check portion that you will be prompted to complete. 

This process (especially the background check part) can take up to two weeks to be completed, so please start this training early!  
Catholic Lacrosse Club Saints
Registration is now open.  Sign up now for the 2019 Spring Lacrosse Season! Teams are available for boys and girls in grades 3 through 8.  To register, visit  www.catholiclax.com .   For more information about our club, please contact us at  catholiclax@gmail.com .
Box Tops for Education - A Dime Every Time!
Thank you to those of you who continue to clip and turn in Box Tops for Education and Tyson Labels for Education. Please continue to clip away! Remember this is a great PTO fundraiser that benefits our school, is easy to participate in, and allows for a fun little competition between classes to track who can turn in the most labels. We only collect labels 2x per year and our  next collection deadline will be 02/28/19.

You and your children can help with this fun fundraiser by asking family members, neighbors, friends, co-workers, etc to assist you in saving the labels for our school.  

Remember each  Box top label = a dime  
     and each  Tyson label = a quarter

There are collection containers located in the school lobby, the church vestibule, or the labels can be sent in via your child's classroom teacher. If you could please check expiration dates, and group together in increments of 50. Don't forget to label your child's classroom on the bag.
We really need your help with this event. Collection numbers have been lower than usual. So please keep your eyes open for the box tops and labels, stock up when items are on sale, and clip away. Thank you for your assistance!
