Mrs. Koberlein's Weekly Message-March 29, 2019

Submitted to All Campuses on Friday, March 29, 2019

Dear Holy Cross Families,

Today is the end of the third quarter, so we are now three fourths of the way through our school year. It is amazing to look back over the school year so far and see how much each student has grown and learned! Thank you for your continued support at home. Working as partners in the students’ education and faith development, we are helping them to achieve a lot.

Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or if there is any way I may be of help!

In God’s Peace,

Mrs. Katie Koberlein

Principal, Our Lady of Providence Campus


Spirit Day/Cardinals Day Thursday

This Thursday, April 4 is scheduled to be an HCA spirit day. It is also the day of the Cardinals home opener. Students may choose to show school spirit or Cardinals spirit by wearing an HCA shirt or a Cardinals shirt with their uniform bottoms. Go Cardinals!

Optional Spring Conferences

Spring conferences are coming up soon, after school on Tuesday, April 9. Unlike the fall conferences, this is not a time for a routine check-in with your child’s teacher. Please do not feel obligated to ask for a meeting if things are going well. However this is a great time to meet with the teacher to discuss any concerns you may have. If you would like a spring conference, please contact your child’s teacher to set up a time.

Spring Book Fair

The spring book fair at OLP will be April 7-10. The book fair will be open after 8:30 and 11:00 masses on Sunday, April 7 and before school, during lunch, and after school on Tuesday and Wednesday, April 9-10. New at this book fair is the option to set up a free e-wallet account so that your child can shop up to a spending limit that you choose, and you can pay electronically. There is also an online shop, available March 31-April 13. Go to HCA-OLP Book Fair for more information, to volunteer, to shop online, or to set up an e-wallet for your child. Shopping at the book fair helps encourage your child’s love for reading and supports our school at the same time!

May Lunch Orders

Ordering for May lunches is now open online. Orders are due by April 18. Order now so you don’t forget! Please remember when ordering that a milk is included with a lunch order.

End of Third Quarter

The third quarter ends today, Friday, March 29. Online gradebook viewing is now closed for parent viewing to allow teachers to prepare report cards in our online system. Report cards will be available for parent viewing online next Friday, April 5 at 3:30pm.

Change for Change Collection

During Lent, STUCO is sponsoring a Change for Change campaign. Students are encouraged to collect change throughout the Lenten season. Money collected will be donated to the children of Melissa's Hope Orphanage in Haiti and to help support the missionary work of the Sisters of Notre Dame. Brown paper bags to collect the donated change are coming home with your child today. Please return them to the school office by April 12. For more information on Melissa's Hope, please go to melissashope.org There are pictures and videos of the children and families in Haiti supported by the orphanage.

Fish Fry

Please come to the Our Lady of Providence Fish Fry. The OLP Men’s Club runs this fish fry every Friday in Lent except for Good Friday. The Men’s Club does a lot to help our school, and this is their main fundraiser. Come get some delicious fish (or frog legs!) while supporting our parish and school!
