2019-2020 Letters from the Principal
Happy 2020! Welcome back as we anticipate a blessed and busy New Year!
Beginning on January 2, Renaissance Star Assessment will be administered to students in
Grades 2 to 8 in the computer lab. The first round of assessments was completed in October.
Since our students are now familiar with the process, things should move along very smoothly.
Pre K through 7th-grade picture retakes and 8th-grade graduation pictures are scheduled for
Thursday, January 9th. A flyer will be sent home with more information.
Pre-Kindergarten Parent/Teacher Conferences will be held on Thursday, January 16 and
Thursday, January 23. The Pre K teachers will contact parents for scheduling.
St. Charles Borromeo School will be CLOSED in observance of Dr. Martin Luther King’s birthday
on Monday, January 20, 2020.
Grades K to 2 progress reports will be sent home on Friday, January 24. Parents of students in
Grades 3 to 8 are reminded to check Genesis for your child’s progress.
We will be celebrating Catholic Schools Week from January 26 to January 31. Open House will
be held on Sunday, January 26 from 12:00 to 2:00 pm. Mrs. Sandeen is excited to continue our
annual Student Art Show in the library on Open House Day. Please be sure to stop by and visit
as we showcase the talents of our students. On Friday, January 31, a closing liturgy will be held
at 9 AM in the church. All are invited to attend. A complete list of Catholic School’s Week
activities will be posted on the website as we draw closer to these very special events.
Please make sure your child is dressed appropriately for recess during these winter months.
Students need jackets, hats, and gloves to protect them from the colder weather as we continue
to play outside at lunchtime. All girls in Grades K to 8 may wear their black gym pants under their school uniform for recess and traveling to and from school.
The PTA will be hosting Family Bingo in McCusker Hall on Friday, January 31st. Further information will follow as the month progresses.
Please remember to check the classroom websites for updates and info on all school events.
May you continue to enjoy God’s blessings and goodness as we journey through the days and
months of the New Year.
