Teachers will be coming in on April 26th to clear out the library and decide what books to keep and to donate. This is a teachers only event.
There are a lot of ideas for updating the library, if anyone has an idea to add they can either get with Mel Bednarski or Lindsay Rogers.
Tuition Referral Program
Bill Haley came in and discussed this program. If you refer a family to Powers Catholic High School you will recieve a $1,000 grant towards your tuition. If you refer a family to St. Mary’s Catholic Elementary or one of the other Elementary Catholic Schools participating in this program you will receive $500 of a tuition grant.
This is from kdg-12th grade and they are currently working on a Pre-K program.
Anyone can give these referrals, grandparent, aunt, cousin, etc. Just make sure your name is on the registration form at the time of registering.
Any further questions can be answered by Mrs. Martindale and brochures are available.
