TUITION STATEMENTS—On the bottom of the monthly tuition statement it states:

The $300 Raiders Hours Fee has been added to the Tuition and will be credited
in April when the 15 Hours have been met.

Even if you paid the tuition in full at the beginning of the year, your statement will still
show a balance of $300. When we receive the Raiders Hours sheet from PTG, the accounts will be credited accordingly. Hope this helps to clear up any questions. We are
hoping to start sending tuition statements by email starting in November.

Need some extra help with your studies? The NJHS students will be
offering FREE TUTORING for students on Wednesdays from 3:404:30pm in the Multi-purpose room upstairs in the Jr. High wing. Students must be picked up by 4:35pm or they will be sent to After
School Care and all rates will apply.

meeting in the Computer Lab for a “Tech Safety

Technology is changing fast and many of us are
struggling to stay one step ahead of our kids. This
is for parents ONLY. Please join us!

Rosary Making for Missions, Wed., Oct. 12th, 3:454:45pm, in the Comm. Room. All students invited.
Students in K-3rd must have an adult with them.

We only have “1” Chair position open! We are still
in need of a Walk-a-thon Picnic Chair. Thank you
to everyone who has volunteered!

IOWA Testing will take place Oct. 3rd—14th. Here are some tips to help students do their best:
Encourage your child to do well but don’t pressure him/her. It is important for your child to stay relaxed for the
test.
Make sure that your child gets enough sleep the nights before testing.
Ensure that your child eats a healthy breakfast and avoid heavy foods that may make him/her groggy. Protein
and fiber will help your student stay full and focused.
Drink plenty of water and eat water filled fruits and vegetables.
Avoid high sugar foods that may make him/her hyper and/or crashing.
Make sure your child gets up early enough so that he/she will be on time to school.
Talking about the test with your child can relieve stress. Encourage your child to do his/her best!
