Preparing for new school year; change to trimester system

Dear Parents:

I hope you are all enjoying a peaceful, restful, and fun summer. I enjoyed a couple of weeks with my family in Italy – I kept you all in prayer while visiting the Eternal City.

We are busily preparing the school for the students return – it will be here before you know it! Next week I will send out the calendar for the school year, and a few updates. In advance of that, I did want to share one change to the calendar. It has been decided at the diocesan level to switch from a quarter system to a trimester system.  Please see the attached letter from Dr. Jennifer Bigelow, Superintendent: Letter to parents re trimester system 2018-2019.pdf  The major change is that there will be three report cards instead of four.

Please enjoy the rest of your summer and I will be in touch again next week.
