Week of April 7, 2014 Announcements

Calendar Mistake--Easter Recess
The abbreviated calendar that was sent home last Monday mistakenly listed the Easter Recess dates.
Easter Recess begins at 11:00 AM on Friday April 11th at dismissal.
School resumes ---Monday April 28th.
Students in grades 3-8 will receive some Mathematics homework assignments to complete over the break. It is important that students are reviewing for the New York State Math tests that will be administered April 29th when they return. A little Mathematics each will help them retain skills needed for the exam.

Or as the 7th grade likes to say every day:

Fund Raising - Due April 15, 2014
Candy bars are still available in the tuition office to assist parents with their fund raising requirements.

Verification Letters
Verification letters regarding student attendance at OLQM will only be issued when the Smart Tuition account is checked as to the name on the tuition account.
Which usually means a day or two for the letter.
Letters can be issued in less time if the parent brings the Smart Tuition statement with them so that the letter may verify that the child's tuition is being paid by the person for whom the letter is being issued.
Since Mrs. Resto only works Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday letters may only be issued on those days.

Report Car Day - April 10, 2014
Report Cards will be distributed by Fr. Antonio on Thursday April 10th.
Parent Teacher Conferences will be held from 2:00 PM - 7:00 PM
In order to facilitate equal time for each parent all teachers will meet with the one parent if the child is in grades 2-8.
This process was tried with success with the teachers in grades 5-8 at the last report card distribution and therefore it will be implemented for all parents in grades 2-8.
