Good morning to all Jaguar families and friends,

 

I hope everyone had a very productive and positive Easter break. Watching the kids on the blacktop this morning reminded me of the first day of school. Tons of excitement and energy. It was very uplifting to watch them.

 

I have several items for you this week.

 

Friday, April 9 – All School Mass at 8:45 a. m.

 

Monday, April 12 – MAP testing window opens. All students in all grades will be scheduled to take this assessment. This is the second assessment for the year.

 

Students that received Empower Illinois scholarship money will be scheduled to take the IAR exam as part of the requirement in receiving this money. I will let you know when their exam will be scheduled.

 

Students in grades 2 through 8 will be required to take the ARK religion assessments. Those dates will be determined as well.

 

Families beginning the application process for the Spalding Scholarship now have until Monday, May 17 to apply. We strongly encourage families receiving tuition assistance from St. Edward should apply.
