There is a training at Holy Trinity in Springfield tomorrow afternoon at 1:30, October 14th. There is another one at St. Susanne in Mt. Vernon at 9:00 am on October 21st .

Halloween is fast approaching. Students can wear their costume all day!! Students will hayride to Communities of Wildwood (across Central City Road) in the morning. As for the costumes, like other years, cover yourself, no blood, gore, and no weapons.…. Parties will be at 2:00. PS and PK parties will have their parties during their class.

Enclosed in the communicator envelope you will find information regarding SCRIP. This is money right back in our pocket. Please consider using this method of payment. With Christmas right around the corner, it is an easy way to shop. You can go on line or fill out the sheet and return it to school. Turn around time is about 1 week. Thanks for considering JACS again!!!
Message from Suzanne Long, Home and School Treasurer: Do you Facebook? If so, join JACS parents/guardians on Tomahawk Talk. It’s a good resource to know what’s coming up, volunteer opportunities, and to connect with other parents.
Don’t forget your Box Tops! Make sure and put your child’s name/teacher’s name on the baggie or envelope, and put them in the collection box by October 26. Check your cabinets for ones that will expire 11-1-17 or 12-31-17. We don’t get credit for expired Box Tops.
Mrs. Lone’s class did a nice job this morning. Today is the actual Lady of Fatima Day. In addition to the great singing, the students put on a short play to show what actually happened with Our Lady of Fatima. Thanks to Fr. Justin for his message to pray.
Thanks for your time this time until next time!!
