Our first week of school is over, and it is wonderful seeing all of your children!
Thank you to all of the families who attended the parent orientation meeting last night. Your being there is example to your children of the importance of school. If you were not able to attend, your student brought home today a large white envelope full of information. It is very important that the many forms in the packet be completed and returned to school by Friday, September 8th. Thank you!
Hot lunch was to be ordered by today for next week. If your child did not bring his/her order in, please be sure to send cold lunches with them Tuesday through Friday.
Our first All-School Mass is next Thursday, September 7th, at 10:30am, led by our 8th graders. We would love for you to join us!
Next Thursday is also the 8th grade parent orientation and DC meeting at 6:00pm.
Come join the fun with the Cub Scouts of Pack 1! If your child in grades K through five is interested in Cub Scouts, plan to attend Join Scout Night at 6pm Thursday, September 7, in the SJV Community Room. A parent must attend. If you can’t attend, or need more information, call Eric Wisniewski at 810-730-2779.
Friday, September 8th, is Special Summer Tee-shirt Day at SJV! Children may wear their Crim shirts, team shirts, vacation shirts – any (appropriate for school) shirt that indicates something in which they participated or enjoyed this past summer – with dress code pants.
A parent asked last night about the water fountains at school. Mr. Morrison, head of building maintenance, supplied the following information: The drinking fountains were installed through the State of Michigan in April of 2016. They are equipped with Elkay WaterSentry VII filters. These filters are NSF/ANSI 53 certified to remove Lead, Chlorine, Taste & Odor, and Particulate Class I Reduction. All of the drinking fountain filters were changed on 8/16/2017.
Students may use the filtered water fountains, or we have water coolers available. If you would prefer your child drink water from the coolers, please have them bring to school at water bottle with their name on it.
We need your help, please! We need volunteers to help Mrs. Lince supervise the children on the playground for recess. Recess times are from 11:30 am until 12:30 pm each day. Please call the school office (235-5687) or email me (firstname.lastname@example.org). The students will be grateful!
Have a great weekend, and we look forward to seeing everyone on Tuesday.
