News and Notes
2018-19 House Rosters:
We are excited to share the House rosters for the 2018-19 school year. Is your family in the Gregory, Augustine, Jerome or Ambrose House? 

Parents needing PTO volunteer hours but who are unable to help during the school day can earn hours by assisting with school sponsored hospitality at the 8:30am and 11:00am Sunday masses at Saint Benedict Church on the 3rd Sunday of the month. Please contact Mr. Cruess for more details. 

Please complete and return as quickly as possible all of the forms that were sent home in last week's family envelopes. New families will receive their forms at the New Parent Orientation Meeting next Tuesday, May 29th, at 6:30pm in the school library. New parents - don't forget to bring a birth certificate for each of your newly enrolled students to be copied! 
School Year Book Orders
Our school year book is still available! What a terrific memento for your student!

Parent Volunteer Hours: Don’t forget to record your PTO volunteer hours. They can be entered in ParentsWeb (Family Home - Service Hours).  There will be a charge for unfulfilled volunteer hours at the end of the school year which is fast approaching. There are still plenty of parent volunteers needed for end-of-school-year events. like the New Family Orientation Meeting and Field Day. See signups above.
