7th GRADE PARENTS
Thank you checking out the signup genius link for helping at the 8th grade graduation. http://www.signupgenius.com/go/4090e48adae2fa20-8thgrade1
At this time, we are really in need of 7th grade students, plus a few parents to help serve at the reception. If you can offer a few hours of your time from 6:00-9:00 pm, we would be very grateful. 7th grade parents help plan, decorate, set up, clean up, and serve the reception, that will be held on May 19th after the graduation Mass at 6:30. All 7th grade students are asked to help in some capacity. We appreciate the help!
All 6th grade students are required by the State of Nebraska to have a physical exam, DPT booster, two doses of the varicella vaccine, and immunizations record by a qualified physician within six months prior to the entrance into 7th grade. You are now able to schedule these appointments and be within that timeline. It would be prudent to call for an appointment sooner than later as those physical appointments fill up quickly. A copy of your student’s physical and a complete list of immunizations from your provider is due in the school office before the first day of school which is Thurs. August 16.
Our preschool information for the 2018- 19 school year was attached on last week’s note and we are accepting registrations.
