Dear St. Bernard Families,
I would like to comment on how excellently the students responded and sang at Mass last week. I am looking forward to some beautiful singing and enthusiastic responses every Wednesday! Thank you for instilling in your child a love for Christ. I encourage you to attend Wednesday morning Mass when you child’s class is in charge.
Our NWEA MAP testing begins Tuesday the 6th of September. All testing will be on Tuesday – Thursday. The Kindergarten and First grade students will take Reading and Math. The 3rd – 8th grade students will take Math, Science, Reading and Language Arts. The results of this testing is received in 24 hours and will be one of the criteria to place students in their appropriate levels for learning. The full report, with the overall Diocesan information, will be given to parents at the Parent Teacher Conferences.
I hope that all of you have a safe and restful three-day weekend.
Algebra I – The Algebra I have begun their class and they are adjusting to a distance learning setting. Mrs. Walsh is the proctor for the class and, along with the online teacher, will be helping them with questions they have. This is a wonderful opportunity that these students have earned with their hard work.
Latin – Our Latin course has been delayed but will be ready to start on September 6th. Again, this is a wonderful learning opportunity for our students that will go a long way to increase the academic ability of our students now and in the future.
After School Clubs – We are very excited by the response to clubs this year. Remember, they start on Tuesday the 6th of September.
Fleece Jackets – We will be in the process of ordering the fleece jackets and hope to have it completed by the time you are reading this. Extra jackets can always be ordered. We have decided that only the words “St. Bernard School” are going to be embroidered on the left side of the jacket. If you would like your child’s name on the jacket you still have time to request that. The name will be embroidered on the right side of the jacket. The names will cost $2.00.
Peace to you and yours,
