Be watching for the official Catholic Schools Week flyer coming home today.  We are adding one last minute event. Students in grades 4-8 will be going to the Creston Theater on Tuesday morning to watch the new movie called Hidden Figures.  Watch for the permission slip to come home today.

I am looking forward to seeing you all at Mass on Sunday for the big kick-off to one of the best weeks of the year!  We are still in need of some volunteers for our Faculty and Staff luncheon on Monday.  Please follow this link if you can help. http://www.signupgenius.com/go/30e084aa8aa23a4fd0-facultystaff

Inauguration Day – January 20, 2017

Middle school students spent their morning actively learning about the inauguration process.
Students did a gallery walk with Presidential Trivia, watched the inauguration ceremony, completed a “read it, mark it, explain it” activity with the Oath of Office and wrote a six-word theme as if they were running for president.
Music: Mrs. Stoner spent time this week teaching students how to Square Dance:

We have lots of illness going around at St. Malachy.  It is imperative that families follow our illness policy to help cut down on a number of sick children.

*  ILLNESS

In the event a child becomes ill at school, he/she will be cared for to the best of our ability until the parent/guardian can be contacted.  No child will be sent home alone when ill unless the parent is contacted and gives such approval.

Returning to school after an illness:  The Center for Disease Control recommends that people with influenza – like illness remain at home until at least 24 hours after they are free of fever (100 F), diarrhea, vomiting, severe cough/cold, or signs of a fever without the use of fever-reducing medications (Tylenol, etc.)

TRIO EDUCATIONAL TALENT SEARCH (ETS) is coming to St. Malachy.  ETS  is a college preparatory program funded by the U.S. Department of Education. The goal of ETS is to help participants complete high school and gain admission to postsecondary programs, prepare for the ACT and learn about financial aid.  Students who apply for ETS will meet with an advisor once a month at St. Malachy School.  Students will have the opportunity to participate in college visits and cultural trips.  The ETS helps fund ACT testing and college applications. All students in grades 6-8th are encouraged to apply.

Don’t Forget Required Sack Lunch Monday! Milk will be provided.

The recruitment season is upon us!  Do you know families who are interested in enrolling their child in kindergarten or preschool program at St. Malachy next year?  Please let them know we have information nights coming up in February.
