Falcon Newsletter 5-11-22
Congratulations to all of the students who received their First Communion this past weekend. It was a beautiful moment and everyone looked amazing! I loved seeing all of the dresses, suits, and families celebrating one another.
Thank you for all the lunches, flowers, notes, and special treats last week. We all felt so special and appreciated. We are blessed to have such a wonderful community of parents and awesome students.
Please keep our 4th graders in your prayers as they left for camp today. They will be back on Thursday.
Reminders:
This Friday, May 13 we will celebrate Mary. Please be sure that your child/ren is dressed in full uniform and we are asking each student to bring one flower to school on this day as well.
Friday is also a minimum day (12:30) dismissal.
Alumni News:
Congratulations to Sofia Cattrone for making the varsity dance team as a sophomore. We are proud of you!
Reminders from the Office:
Registration is now due for the upcoming 2022-2023 school year. If you have not completed your child(ren’s) registration, please make sure this is done as soon as possible. The original due date for this to be completed was Friday, April 29th.
Please make sure your children have enough food for their school day at school. The office has seen a number of children in the past week that don’t have lunch, forgot their lunch in the car, or ate their entire arsenal of food at snack recess. The office does not keep food on hand to supply to our students. Choicelunch usually has just one emergency lunch to hand out to a student who has forgotten their lunch. Our kiddos are growing like weeds and they have huge appetites these days!
The lost and found is overflowing! If your children are missing anything, please have them check the lost and found in the office or down at Extended Care. Parents can come on campus after school to check as well. Just a reminder, the campus must be clear of students prior to anyone coming on to campus. All lost and found will be put out on the bench under the 1-4 grade windows on Friday, May 27th, after Olympic Day. Please take this opportunity to check for your children’s missing items. Anything not claimed will be donated to the Used Uniform Program and St. Vincent De Paul. Water bottles, lunch boxes, etc. will be thrown away.
Calling all baseball fans!
Our school has worked with the Oakland A’s to access discounted tickets up to 50% off for 27 home games (including Giants, Red Sox, Yankees, and Astros). We have our own link that you can use to purchase tickets and share out with your friends and family. To purchase tickets visit this page here – click on buy discounted tickets and enter in the promo code: SFAFalcons.
In addition to offering a discount on the tickets, the Oakland A’s will also donate $5 per ticket sold back to our school at the end of the season. Obviously with the more tickets bought, the more they donate to the school, so we want this to get to as many people as possible! Please share this link with your friends and family and make sure to bookmark it for each access to purchasing your own tickets!
