Please note the following information for this week:
End of Year Blessing
May God’s blessing go with us today,
At the end of this school year we pray.
That you keep us safe and give us rest
So we start again renewed and refreshed.
Full of health, full of fun
Ready to come and learn again.
May God’s blessing go with us today,
As we begin our school holiday.
Give your peace and your joy,
To every girl and every boy.
Help the teachers to enjoy the break,
and prepare and plan for the new intake.
May God’s blessings await us next year,
To embrace each new challenge without fear.
Fill this school with your love,
and guide our hearts from above.
Full of faith, full of hope,
full of joy, and full of love.

School Technology Update
Thanks to a grant we have received 48 13-inch MacBook Air computers, 2 charging stations, 2 projectors and 2 screens for the gym. What a wonderful upgrade to our current technology! School presentations, drama productions and assemblies will be spectacular next year!
We are pleased to announce that we will be using A. Hartz Pack to School as our pre-packaged school supplies program again this year. The teachers have already input their itemized list of supplies, which is now available for you to order online. The website to order the supplies is: www.ahartzpacktoschool.com. All of the supplies will be delivered to the school and available for pick up in the gym, dates will be confirmed soon. This program is completely voluntary. However, if you choose not to use it, you still need to purchase the same products as found on the website. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Robin Spillane, parent coordinator, at RobinSpillane@yahoo.com. Supplies will be available for pick up in the school gym on August 29th and September 4th from 5PM-8PM.
Mathletics Over the Summer
Mathletics will be available to all students in Grades K-8 over the summer. Your child’s username and password remain the same as it was during the school year. All lessons in your child’s current grade level have been made available to the students. When your child logs in, s/he will not see a vault with an assigned lesson, but rather all the lessons and activities will be available. Live Mathletics will also be available. We encourage you to use this resource over the summer to help your child review, practice, and retain knowledge and skills acquired during the past school year.
