Dear Parents and Guardians:
As we continue to celebrate our Blessed Mother's special love and care for us during the month of May, may we take the time to pray and ask her intercession for us these remaining few weeks of the month. Mary's concern for us knows no bounds and she constantly intercedes for all of us to her Divine Son, Jesus. Let us remember to take "the time" to pray to her and even try to pray a decade of the rosary every night as a family. It will not go unnoticed by Mary, our Mother and the many graces received will be boundless. If you have special intentions, you want prayed for please send them to us via your daughter/son. We pray a decade of the rosary every day for special intentions.
Thank you to Mrs. Joanie Polidoro and Mrs. Cathy Barnard and their committee for their time and effort in planning our "Field Day!" The children had a great time and certainly enjoyed the games and yes getting soaked with the various water games throughout the day!! Special thanks to our 8th grade who helped work the various games with the students. The food was delicious, the Field Day shirts were super and despite the "hot weather" everyone had a grand time! Congrats to the "Gold Team" that won!! Thanks, parents and guardians for your help and support! It is appreciated!!

If you have any problems or concerns during the year, please contact your child's teacher. It is important to call, e-mail or send a note to school to make an appointment. If you need to contact Sister Kathleen please do the same.
Remember to request from your child's teacher the "Excused Absence from School Form" due to a pre-planned trip. This is important to do, so the Main Office is not calling you during your time away questioning why you did not call in your child's absence.If your child is absent, it is very important for you to call the Office (215-639-3456) and leave a message. If your child is out three days or more he/she needs to have a doctor's note when returning to school. If it is one or two days, you the parent/guardian needs to write a note to the teacher.
This year, Parents and Guardians, we continue to use My Students Progress to send information to you by e-mail, phone call and texting. If you change your e-mail address, phone number or home address, please call school and let us know-215-639-3456. It is very important that we up-date our records and keep them current. Please remember to check My Students Progress to see your child's marks each week. Also, please check your child's teacher's website for important information during the week! Any questions or concerns make sure you are in contact with your child's teacher.
Please do not park your car on Kings Avenue at dismissal in the afternoon. All parents,guardians need to drive their car into the parking lot off of Hulmeville Road, get in line and wait for your child to come out of school. This ruling is for everyone's safety.
Listed below are the times for the beginning of school each day:
*School bell rings at 8:05 a.m. Students must be in school, no later than 8:20 a.m. Prayer Bell is 8:20 a.m. Dismissal is at 3:00 p.m.
If your child is late for school, parents and guardians, you need to use the school entrance to bring your child in to the school. Please report to the school office with your child. After 8:20 a.m.the library door as well as the cafeteria door is locked. Parents with students in grades Prek, Kindergarten and first grade you are asked to bring the children to the Main Office if you are late. It is difficult for the children to reach the doorbell and the doors are heavy for them to open.
Blessings of peace and joy,
