This morning we sent out a Parent Alert text, email, and phone call to test our Parent Alert system. This is the system we use for school closings and emergency notifications. If you did not receive either a phone call, text message and/or email this morning, please contact the school office at (614) 718-5825 or email@example.com.
While on the topic of safety I would also like to take this opportunity to remind you that when students arrive late in the morning (after 8:00 am) or are returning from an appointment we ask that an adult walk the student to the school office and sign them in. This helps to assure the safety of each child. Thank you!
Students and staff are invited to show school spirit by enjoying a dress down day this Friday, October 6th. Students are encouraged to wear Bishop Watterson, Saint Charles or Saint Brigid school colors or spiritwear! Please see info below regarding this week’s tailgate on Friday evening.
Enjoy the beautiful sunny weather this week!

St. Brigid of Kildare School is accredited through The Ohio Catholic School Accrediting Association (OCSAA). The purpose of the OCSAA is to strengthen Catholic school identity and mission and to engage Catholic schools in the ongoing improvement of student learning. To be accredited means that we are recognized as having a particular status which in our case is that we are a chartered school in the state of Ohio. In our setting, we go through an accreditation cycle every six years. This year, we are starting a new cycle and are involved with the self study process, taking a look at our staff, school, and community profiles, as well as revisiting our mission statement and creating two new goals, a student learning goal and a catholic identity goal.
Part of the self study process involves surveying the staff, students, and parents in the community. Teachers will take a survey on October 5th. Students in grades 5-8 will take a survey the week of October 16th. Next week, we will send out a parent survey on October 11th, and we ask that you submit this by October 23rd. These results will help with our self study process.
Each year Washington Township sponsors a poster contest during fire prevention month. We are very proud to announce that third grader Annie Creekmur (pictured on left) was a first place winner, and third grader Anna Doll (pictured on right) was a second place winner.
Congrats Annie and Anna!
