PARISH FESTIVAL
REVERSE RAFFLE

HURRY,
TIME IS RUNNING OUT!


 
FROM THE DESK OF MS. BRESLER...                                 
Dear Parents,
 
     This school year was filled with hope, possibilities and challenges.  I know we have all grown during the year and we are all looking forward to summer and the freedom it brings.  Thank you for sharing your children with us!
 
NEW LOGO:
     The Parish has designed a logo to unify all parish organizations. The parish has been using this new logo for the past few months. You may have noticed the new sign by the parish offices.  Starting next Fall the school will also begin using it on our website, our stationary and any publications.
 
     The school colors will remain blue and gold, and the school plaid will remain the same.  Regarding uniforms with logos, any new uniforms should have the new logo.  Also, all new spirit wear should display the new logo.  If you currently have uniforms or spirit wear with the "old" logo, those can be used until the student outgrows them.
 
SUMMER OFFICE HOURS:
     The school office will be open during the summer on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 9:00 am - 12:00 pm.   
 
WALK-A-THON UPDATE:
     Congratulations to everyone! We have met out goal of $35,000 for the walk-a-thon!  It is wonderful when we can work together as a team to complete a project.
 
  PLAYGROUND UPDATE:
     Work on the playground should begin on May 30th.  Next year the playground should be available for use even after a rainstorm the night before.
 
TEACHER UPDATES:
     A few weeks ago, I let you know about the teachers who will be leaving us at the end of this year.  We are in the process of hiring their replacements.  While, I am not yet ready to announce any replacements as yet, I can share that Mrs. Schaeffer will remain in preschool and Ms. White will be moving to Kindergarten.

NOTE FROM THE LIBRARIAN:
Please be sure to return all library books for K-7th grade by May 23rd to avoid payment for lost books or withholding of grades and transcripts.

A flyer went home for K-7th last week about our summer Accelerated Reader program at the Clermont County library locations from June 3rd-August 16th. Please consider participating to help prevent the "summer slide" in reading skills. Click here for the registration form due as soon as possible. The folder with a link to St. Veronica's program will be on all of the desktops of the Clermont County library computers. Thank you!
