GRANDPARENTS DAY
Grandparents Day was a HUGE success. Thanks to everyone who worked so hard to make this day special. We had over 430 grandparents in attendance. Grandparents enjoyed watching the students perform in church as well as visiting the classrooms. It was definitely a day to remember!
TUITION RATES FOR THE 2019-2020 SCHOOL YEAR

The Parish Finance Committee has set the tuition for the 2019-2020 school year which will reflect a 4% increase to assist with school expenses. A link to the 2019-2020 Tuition Rate sheet is below as well as the FACTS tuition payment information.

The Facts link below provides Tuition Payment Plan options and information regarding financial Assistance (Grant & Aid Assistance) for families as they enroll or re-enroll. Note: Returning families will need to verify their financial information and, in particular, credit card expiration dates.  The last day to enroll in the FACTS payment plan is May 20, 2019. 


Regarding Financial Assistance, the fee for the application has gone up from $30 to $35.  The deadline for financial assistance applications is April 10, 2019.


Families have until April 15, 2019 to withdraw their student for the 2019-2020 school year with a full refund of Registration Fees (10 days from the date tuition is set).

2019-2020 SCHOOL YEAR

Incoming Kindergarten, third and fourth grade classes are full for the 2019-2020 school year. We have started a waiting list and will add an extra classroom if needed.
The seventh graders set up and prayed the
Stations of the Cross.
PRIVATE TRANSPORTATION
This is a reminder that next Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday are all Private Transportation days. Kenton County Schools are on spring break next week, so SJS will have no bus service.
FLOWER DELIVERY DAY

Parents, your help is needed in order for flower delivery day to run smoothly. Volunteers are needed to help unload multiple delivery trucks, sort orders and help families load their cars with orders. 
We can never have too many volunteers, but please sign up or let Kristin Siegel know if you can help. Middle School / High School students are welcome to help for service hours.


** Please note - flowers NEED to be picked up by 6pm  due to First Communion practice. Flowers that are not picked up by at 6 pm will be placed by the school front doors and left unattended. Therefore, the school will not be responsible for missing flowers after 6 pm.


BOX TOPS FOR EDUCATION

With the school year winding down, lets have a friendly competition of "Who Rules the School - boys vs girls." Please send in Box Tops by May 17th to see who wins! Get your whole family involved! Have your grandma, aunt, neighbors or co-workers collect for your child! Attached is a list of participating products and a new collection sheet. Happy Clipping!


COINS FOR A CAUSE
Tomorrow will be the last day that Student Council will be collecting coins to support Mary Rose Mission. Each grade level is competing against one another to see who can raise the most money as part of our Lenten alms giving. Please remember to bring in your donations of penny coins to your grade level bucket (positive money) and silver coins to other grade level buckets (negative money). The grade level with the greatest positive number on Friday is our winner. The students are having fun and helping others at the same time!

We have a few extra yearbooks available for $15. The due date to purchase one is April 17. This is on a first come, first serve basis.
