It has been a joy meeting every student and their family for conferences. I feel blessed to teach your children. This will be a very successful year for them going forward. If there is anything you would like to discuss more in depth, feel free to contact me at email@example.com to schedule another, longer conference. I would be happy to meet with you to discuss your child's progress at any point in the year.
Last week I sent out permission slips for our first field trip of the year. The 7th Grade will be visiting Swan Farm's Washington State Corn Maze on Wednesday, Oct. 18. We will leave after Mass on Wednesday Oct. 18 and return by 2:00.
I AM STILL MISSING SEVERAL FIELD TRIP FORMS.
We now have enough drivers for the field trip. Thank you! Please ensure that you stop by the office to fill out the field trip driver insurance form. This form protects both you and the school.

This year there will be 4 MAP tests: Literature, Language Arts, Mathematics, and Science. They will be given in that order.
