Principal’s Message

Tomorrow each family will receive Re-Registration Forms for the 2016-2017 academic year.   Parents are asked to complete all of the forms and return them to the office no later than Friday, February 19th.

Registration of students new to All Saints, including siblings who will be eligible by age for Pre-Kindergarten, has already begun.  Separate forms related to this initial registration process have been sent home to parents who have already expressed interest in enrolling another child in our program.  If you are interested in enrolling another child from your family and have not yet requested forms, please contact Mrs. Joyce D’Eugenio at 703-393-1490 or office@allsaintsva.org.

During the past five years the school has identified two financial goals that have been key considerations in the design of the annual budget: 1) increasing faculty salaries to 75% of the current scale for Manassas City Public Schools and 2) slowing the rate of tuition increase so as to maintain a high degree of affordability.

We have made significant strides in both of these areas.  As a result, 56% of our teachers are now compensated at or above the 75% benchmark and All Saints remains a tremendous value for families in the Manassas region.  Through the financial investment of the parish and with the generous support of the PTO and community at large, we continue to provide a first-class educational environment at an affordable price for families in our community.

As we plan for the upcoming year, it is our goal to continue to provide the same commitment to excellence, the same level of service, and the same quality that you have come to associate with the All Saints’ experience.  At the same time, we want to continue to bolster salaries for our faculty and staff who are so dedicated to our mission.

In order to sustain these commitments, we will increase tuition by 2.5% and reduce the rate of sibling discount by 1% for the 2016-2017 academic year.  Pre-Kindergarten tuition will increase from $2700 to $2850.

The following is a list of the in-parish tuition rates for 2016-2017.

1 Child             $5,581

2 Children        $9,097

3 Children        $12,390

4 Children        $15,683

Diocesan Policy Change – VIRTUS Training Requirements

The Arlington Diocese has recently announced that the requirement for annual updates to the original live VIRTUS training has been revised.  Employees and volunteers will now complete the program only every three years.  Additionally, the video will be provided to each individual electronically via an email notification on the date of their training anniversary.  For this reason, upcoming VIRTUS update sessions have been cancelled.

Snow Day Policy & the Need for Make-Up Days

In accordance with diocesan policy, our school is required to make-up the first three days of instruction that are cancelled due to inclement weather. These three days have in fact been factored into the All Saints school calendar at the end of the year.  While there remains the possibility for additional cancellations, the diocese has confirmed that there is no need at this time to schedule any additional make-up days.  As such, our calendar remains unchanged and the final day of school at this time will be June 17th.

11th Annual Race for Education!

Preparations are now underway for the 11th Annual Race for Education which will be held on Thursday, May 5th.  A packet of important information related to the event will be distributed to students at a special assembly on Friday morning. When reviewing the information packet, you will note that our goal for this year’s Race for Education is $50,000.  As is our tradition, we will continue to donate 15% of the proceeds to St. Jude Childrens’ Research Hospital, an organization that has received more than $100,000 from our community since the 1990’s.   The remaining funds from the 11th Annual Race for Education will be allocated for resources to support student learning initiatives and faculty enrichment.

Students are asked to submit completed mailing labels by Friday, February 12th.  For additional information about this process and the incentives offered to students, please see the information packet.  Should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact the event coordinator, Mrs. Marjorie Collins, at 703-365-9686.

Science Fair Winners!

Congratulations to our 7th & 8th grade students on the successful completion of the Science Fair!  Over the course of the past several months, our students have learned about the scientific process while gaining experience in the management of long-term projects as well as public speaking.  Thank you, Mrs. Woolfrey and Mrs. Cottingham, for leading our students through this complex process and for supporting them each step of the way.    A complete listing of the Science Fair winners is linked to this week’s newsletter.

PTO Meeting ~ Financial Planning Tips for Parents (February 23rd)

Criminal Background Checks for Volunteers & VIRTUS Requirements

As part of the diocesan initiative to maintain a safe environment for all of our children, all volunteers with “substantial contact” with children are required to complete a background check prior to working in the school and to complete VIRTUS training within 45 days of commencing service.  To register for an upcoming training, please visit www.virtus.org.

In accordance with diocesan policy, full compliance for an adult parent volunteer is not required for open events.  (An open event is one that is open to the public, infrequent and publicized, such as Field Day, concerts and special events/assemblies.)  However, full compliance is required for adult parent volunteers who wish to participate in closed events.  (A closed event is one that is not entirely open to the general public such as classroom activities, parties, field trips, etc.)  For this reason, all parents who wish to attend field trips or volunteer in support of classroom activities are required to complete the background check process and attend VIRTUS training. 

Register for the training course at www.virtus.org for the upcoming session:

Tuesday, February 16th, St. Theresa School in Ashburn at 9:00 a.m.

Saturday, February 27th, St. James School in Falls Church at 9:30 a.m.

All Saints join schools across our country in celebrating Catholic Schools Week, an annual opportunity to highlight our heritage and distinct mission. The theme selected for this year is Catholic Schools ~ Communities of Faith, Knowledge and Service. At All Saints, this is exactly the type of community we cultivate each day. With a commitment to academic excellence and more importantly, faith formation and character development, the faculty, staff, clergy and parents are united in their efforts to provide our children with a life-changing educational experience.

During Catholic Schools Week, we pause to give thanks for the gift of Catholic education and the many blessings we share as members of the All Saints community. The following is a list of special activities planned for the weeklong celebration.

  • Sunday, January 31 – Saturday/Sunday Mass ~ All students are encouraged to wear their school uniform to Mass this weekend.
  • Monday, February 1 – Vocation Day ~ Previously recorded video testimonies from our parish priests will be shared with the students via the classroom ACTIV Boards. Students will hear about the importance of praying for vocations and how to discern their own call.
  • Tuesday, February 2 – Staff Appreciation Day ~ Teachers and students will work together to show their appreciation for members of the staff.
  • Wednesday, February 3 – Priest Appreciation Day ~ Students will offer special prayers and spiritual bouquets for our parish priests. Religion Bee for Grades 3-8 at 12:45 p.m. in the Parish Activity Center.
  • Thursday, February 4 – Student Appreciation Day ~ Dress Down Day, Free Ice Cream at Lunch and No Homework.
  • Friday, February 5 – Teacher Appreciation Day ~ Students will prepare small gifts for their teacher with the assistance of the Room Liaisons. School Mass and Virtues Ceremony (8:30 a.m.) Faculty & Staff Luncheon, hosted by the PTO, following Noon Dismissal.
