WEEKLY PARENT UPDATE AS OF 3/9/21
Greetings to all St. Edward Jaguar families and friends!
I hope you are enjoying this incredible weather. The schedule for this week is light. However, I have several very important announcements to make related to everyone at St. Edward.
Matching Funds – We now have the ability to accept matching funds from the Caterpillar Foundation Marching Gifts program. If you are an employee or a retiree that would like to make a donation to the church or school, you may file for matching funds. For more information, please call the school office at 274-2994. If you have questions about other matching fund possibilities, please call us for information.
Morning temperature checks – According to the Illinois Department of Health (IDPH) we no longer have to take temperatures at the door for drop off in the morning. With that, I ask that you continue to communicate any health issues that arise with your child. We have to make sure our school will be safe as we gather through the day. Our families have been exceptional in reporting trips, illness and testing if needed. Keep it up and thank you!
Beginning tomorrow, please drop off your student on Ash St. facing east. They will go immediately to the blacktop. If we have bad weather, drop them off at the cafeteria door as we have been doing so far far.
Wednesday, March 10 – Stations of the Cross for grades 5 – 8.
Report cards will be sent home. Please sign and return the envelope. You keep the report card.
Friday, March 12 – All School Mass at 8:45 a. m.
Monday, March 15 – Parent – Teacher Conferences begin. Your specific classroom teacher will reach out to you for appointments. Please contact your teacher if you would like to meet.
5th through 8th grade conferences will be held on Tuesday the 16th and Thursday the 18th. Your specific classroom teacher will reach out to you if an appointment is needed. However, if you would like to meet with any of the teachers, please contact them immediately.
