Parent-Student-Teacher Conferences Begin Next Week
Thank you for signing up for your children’s required November conference time. Some of you may have arranged to meet yesterday, November 15th, during our half-day conferences. We appreciate you meeting with your child's teacher so you can celebrate the successes of your child's schooling and discuss any areas needing improvement. Partnering with your child's teacher is fundamental to your child's educational success, and the teachers appreciate the super support of our St. Louise teachers!
We ask that our families arrive a few minutes early for your scheduled conference time. There is no need to check in at the office on Monday or Tuesday - just head straight to the classroom. Teachers will have their schedules posted on their doors, and chairs on which to wait outside the room. School-age siblings may wait in the school library to watch a video or read a book, and they will be supervised by one of our teachers. Please note, our library-supervising teachers are not able to watch non-school-age children, such as your toddlers or babies, so please find childcare at home for these younger ones. The library will be open Monday, November 20th, 2023, from 10:00am-7:30pm (No supervision between 12:30pm-1:00pm and 4:00pm-5:00pm) and Tuesday, November 21st, 2023, from 8:00am-12:00pm. Thank you!
The school will close after our final conferences finish on Tuesday (around noon), and the entire school staff will enjoy this extended break. For them and for you, our school families, I offer this prayer:
I thank You for our St. Louise families and faculty, and for all the blessings that You pour out on us each day. I give thanks for the support of school parents, the talent of our teachers, the dedication of school staff, and the hard work and kind hearts of our school students! Along with all of them, we give thanks to You for this wonderful St. Louise community we have created, knowing You are watching over and guiding us.
Lord God, Heavenly King,
I ask that our St. Louise parents, students, and staff continue to be blessed by feeling Your love and presence in our lives. We know that this life is not all there is; that the best is yet to come if we live for You. So, help us each day to live our lives in ways that honor and please You. And may we never forget to give You all the praise and glory and thanks, not just on Thanksgiving, but every day. We ask this through Christ our Lord.
Thank you for all your support and donations to our Thanksgiving Basket Drive. In coordination with St. Louise Parish, St. Vincent de Paul, and school Faculty and Staff we are able to provide gift cards and a thanksgiving basket full of food for families in need in our community during the holiday season.
