The students have been so busy not only with their studies, but also preparing for their sporting events! The football teams played their first game this weekend, and the girls basketball teams begin playing next week. Go Vikings!
The students can practice, but cannot play any games, until a current physical is on-file in the school office. Physicals are good for one year. You can schedule an appointment with your own physician, or drop-in to an urgent care clinic for a sports physical (usually for a $25-$30 fee). Make some calls and see what will work so your athlete can be on the field/floor with their team. It is also necessary that the $30 pay-to-play fee is paid before students are allowed to play in games. Thank you to all who have already taken care of these details!
Information about school pictures was sent home on Friday, and they will be taken on Wednesday, September 13th. Please be sure to return the envelope with your package choice clearly marked. It is a dress-up day, meaning Sunday best and appropriate for school clothing. If they prefer, students may also wear dress code. Remember that they will still be going outside for recess, and grades 1, 3, and 7 have gym class that morning. Students can bring dress code attire to change into if they'd like. All students will have their photo taken for school records, whether or not you choose to purchase a package.
Also sent home Friday was an ICHAT form, necessary for us to keep on file for anyone who will be volunteering at school this year. Please return it by September 15th. Thanks to those of you who have returned all of the forms sent home the first week of school -- all of that information is necessary for us to keep accurate records for your children.
The Holy Redeemer Council of Catholic Women and Knights of Columbus are sponsoring a Spaghetti Dinner to benefit their High School Scholarship Fund on Thursday, September 14th, from 4-7pm, at the Family Life Center. Call 810-938-7019 for more information.
Come and cheer for the Vikings Football Team 'under the lights' at 7:30 pm next Saturday (9/16) at Holy Redeemer. It is a great family outing, and you will be supporting our SJV students!
God's Blessings to all, especially those in the path of Hurricane Erma,
