Reminders
Please check your childs Daily Folder and Agenda each day after school. The agenda
contains important information regarding assessments, assignments and projects. It also
contains assignments from the day that may need to be completed as homework.

If your child brings work home in the Homework section of the daily folder, this work needs
to be finished as homework, and should be turned in the next day.

Please try to remind your student to bring two snacks each day. We are letting them know it
is their responsibility to make sure they pack them.

Chapel is every Tuesday morning. Please have your child wear the chapel uniform and
proper accessories (ties and cross-ties).
