On Monday, October 12, we will recite the World Mission Rosary to pray for peace throughout the world. Which is very important during these troubled times. The World Mission Rosary is designed in five colors, with each color representing a different area of the world.
Each grade level has been assigned one of the five colors, and we are asking students, if possible, to wear a t-shirt of their assigned color over their regular uniform on Monday, October 28. T-shirts should be as solid as possible, with little to no writing, so the overall effect will be unified and beautiful. This is not a “casual day.” Following is a list of colors per grade:
Jr.Kindergarten & Kindergarten wear BLUE for the ocean surrounding the Islands of the Pacific
Grades 1 & 2 wear WHITE to symbolize Europe, the seat of the Holy Father, shepherd of the World
Grades 3 & 4 wear GREEN for the forests and grasslands of Africa
Grades 5 & 6 wear RED representing the fire of faith that brought missionaries to the Americas
Grades 7 & 8 wear YELLOW representing Asia, the morning light of the east
We will begin at 8:30 a.m. in the Msgr. Buchheit Parish Center. A representative from the different continents will lead each decade in their native language. In the words of Archbishop Fulton Sheen, “We must pray, and not for ourselves, but for the world.”
Tuesday, October 13th is an Early Dismissal Day. The parking lot closes at 1:00 p.m. and students dismiss at 1:05 p.m
Friday, October 16th marks the end of the First Quarter. This is also the last day to sign-up for Parent/Teacher Conferences. For more information, please see the Parent/Teacher Conference information below.
Please check AscendSMS to ensure that your child has no missing assignments or tests before Friday, October 16th.
Parent-Teacher Conferences are scheduled for Wednesday, October 28th & Thursday, October 29th. Again this year, we are using PickATime.com, a web-based scheduling system that allows parents to select one conference time on either date for each 3-year old Preschool through Grade 8 student. Options for an email reminder and/or printable schedule are available. Changes can be made during the scheduling period and teachers will be able to view their schedules at all times.
Please find attached to this email:
Twenty-four hour access to the system is immediate on Monday, September 28th at 6:00 a.m. Conference times are color-coded to indicate times that are available and times that are already scheduled. All scheduling will close on Friday, October 16, at 11:00 p.m.
Please be aware that access to PickATime and AscendSMS will be blocked for families whose tuition payments, enrollment fees, book fees, and midday recreation fees/fines are not paid. Please make sure payments are up-to-date so that conferences can be scheduled and report cards sent home. If you have any questions or concerns about tuition payments, please contact Mrs. Thieret at the Rectory (636-227-7440). If you have questions or concerns about other fees/fines, please contact me at the school office (636-227-0802).
