Guidance for Parents on Educational Apps“How to Decide Which Educational Apps Make the Grade” by Tara Haelle in The New York Times, December 7, 2017, https://www.nytimes.com/2017/12/05/smarter-living/educational-apps-kids.html
Chocolate Bars for Fund Raising
Recently there have been a number of parents who were unaware of the fund raising requirement of either paying $175.00 to Smart Tuition or selling candy bars. This was stated on this blog for three weeks in September (please scroll back to September to see the announcements) along with the policy that it is an either/or scenario - either parents opt to sell candy bars to defer them making payments directly out of pocket OR pay out of pocket.
The registration form on TADS does mention all these facets.
The September notices gave a deadline for chocolate pickup as November 1st so that entries could be made by Smart Tuition on those people who decided which option they wanted.
For next year Mr. Woods will make sure more clearly that parental understanding appears on the sign off sheet. It is also just as important that parents read the blog carefully and ask office staff questions before over reacting because they did not read the policy.
The New York City Fire Department was here last Wednesday regarding the hood above the stove in the kitchen.
The Fire Department has ruled that the hood must be removed completely and a new hood installed with a venting system running through the rectory with an exit pipe on the rectory's roof.
This matter is being looked at the building commission of the Archdiocese and therefore the stove and convection ovens must remain off until the work is complete and approved by the
NYC Fire Department.
The kitchen was installed in 1980 and rules have changed over the years so children will continue to be served a cold lunch provided by the Archdiocese of New York's Child Nutrition Program until the work is completed and approved.
