Dear Saint Timothy Catholic School Parents,
We hope you have enjoyed the many Christmas celebrations we've had over the past two weeks. I'd like to acknowledge and thank a few individuals for their work in making our Christmas Dinner and Concert so special. A special word of thanks to Mrs. Schmank, Mrs. Kabadi and our amazing PTO executive Board for planning and facilitating this year's delicious and amazing Christmas Dinner, we had over 600 attendees and a great time was had by everyone.
Thanks also to Mr. and Mrs. D'Agostino, owners of Pizza Margarita, for the delicious food, we appreciate your generosity and love your food!
Congratulations to Mrs. Salinas for raising the standard for our Christmas Concert and Para-liturgy and to Ms. Fitzpatrick (Fitzmagic) for an amazing Christmas Band Concert! This year's performances were sublime. We are so proud of our amazing students and our outstanding Music teachers, Mrs. Salinas and Ms. Fitzpatrick.    
This is a reminder that tomorrow, Wednesday, 12/21/16, is an out of uniform day for all students. Students are asked to dress in their Sunday best, as we will be attending Mass together.  

Are you looking for a way to earn your points? Every day our fantastic teachers could use some extra help with recess. If you help with every recess for one day you will earn 10 points! Please contact Mrs. Schoen   our recess coordinator if you can help.

We are looking to hire a part time person for a part-time After Care Position starting in January. The hours are 3-6 pm Mon- Fri and occasionally 11:30-4:00 pm on Fridays. Great for college students. Please contact Elise Facciolo  if you're interested.

If you are interested in serving on our school climate committee, please contact our school counselor, Mrs. Beth Henry. This committee is responsible for planning and facilitiating parent education programs. 

Families who will be in need of tuition assistance for the next school year are encouraged to begin the application process now.  Details can be found  here  If you have any questions about the process, please reach out to Mrs. Irons .

If you would like to see what is going on at Saint Timothy, I invite you to follow us on Facebook, Follow us on Twitter, or Instagram. There are pictures and videos posted to these sites every week.

Finally, on behalf of our entire staff, I would like to extend our heartfelt gratitude for all that you have contributed to our school this past year. We greatly appreciate your support and look forward to furthering our partnership in the coming New Year.
May you all experience an outpouring of our Lord's love this Christmas Season. Please know that you will all remain in our prayers.  

God bless,
Joseph M. McLaughlin
