From the Desk of Mrs. Tiezzi
Dear St. Rita Parents/Guardians,
It was so good to see all our parents over the last few days at conferences. Thank you to our NJHS students for providing babysitting services for our younger students and to the HSA Hospitality committee for providing the teachers with delicious treats. Teachers are always available to speak with parents regarding their child, so do not hesitate to reach out should a need arise. The next parent-teacher conferences are scheduled for March 2023. Report cards for the first trimester will be sent home to parents of students in grades K-8 in early December. Parents of students in grades 4-8 have the ability to receive bi-monthly progress reports through the Edu-connect parent portal. Additional information on the NWEA MAP testing can be found at https://nwea.org/familytoolkit/.
We are currently collecting candy to be distributed at our upcoming Trunk or Treat event. We would appreciate donations from all our families in order to have enough treats for all our students to enjoy. Donation bins are located in the front hallway. Thank you for your kindness!
Next Tuesday, October 25, the HSA is holding an Open meeting for parents of students in grades PreK-8. This meeting will be held in the gym beginning at 6:30 P.M. Refreshments will be served. A flyer with additional information was sent home via your child today. We hope to see you there.
Please help keep our traffic flow moving in the morning by having your child ready to exit your car quickly and safely by themselves. If your child needs extra time and attention in the morning, please park in the lot or on the street and walk your child to the door. Also, consider exiting the parking lot by turning right onto Edgemere and then right onto Dessa to Ridge Road as opposed to left onto Edgemere and left onto Gilles to Whitney. This will help with congestion at the stop light. Thank you for your cooperation.
St. Rita School is currently looking for qualified individuals to fill two vacant positions - School Counselor and Advancement Director. Both of these positions are part-time between 15-20 hours a week. The role of the School Counselor is to advocate for and support every student’s academic, emotional, behavioral, and social development and to assist in developing a school community where all students are safe, known, and accepted. The Director of Advancement is responsible for the oversight of alumni fund-raising efforts and grant writing. More detailed job descriptions are available to interested individuals by contacting email@example.com.
Please keep all our parents who are in law enforcement in your thoughts and prayers this week. We are so grateful to these men and women for their commitment to keeping us all safe. Mostly especially pray for the family and colleagues of the two police officers in Bristol, Sgt. Alex Hamzy and Lt. Dustin DeMonte who made the greatest sacrifice by giving their lives to protect the citizens of Bristol. Take some time this week as a family to reach out and say thank you to anyone you know in law enforcement. I’m sure they would appreciate a few words of support and kindness.
Thank you for entrusting your child/ren to our care. Have a wonderful week and be sure to get out and view the glorious handiwork of God that nature is providing us this Fall season.
