3rd Quarter Lock-Down Drill ~ Thursday, March 24th (2:00 p.m.)

The 3rd Quarter Lock-Down Drill will take place at 2:00 p.m. on Thursday, March 24th.  (Please note: This drill has been scheduled for several weeks and is not in response to any concerns specific to All Saints.  Rather, it is another exercise by which we maintain a state of preparedness should the need ever arise to secure the facility and safeguard the children.) 

Terra Nova Testing Countdown ~ 4 Weeks!

As the week of standardized testing approaches, parents are asked to avoid scheduling appointments from Monday, April 11th – Tuesday, April 19th so that each student may participate in the testing as scheduled.

Field Day Announced ~ June 2nd

Field Day for Grades K-8 will take place on the grounds of Linton Hall School in Bristow on Thursday, June 2nd.  Mark your calendars now for what promises to be a great day of activities and fellowship for our school families.

VIRTUS Update Training Sessions

One of the diocesan requirements regarding the safe environment initiative is that of annual VIRTUS training.  Through attendance at the 30 minute video training, faculty, staff and volunteers alike are reminded of important practical measures that we can implement to maintain a safe environment.  Those who have not yet attended the VIRTUS update training this year are asked to do so during the spring semester.  While there is no need to register on-line for this session, for planning purposes please contact Mrs. Janet Smith, VIRTUS coordinator, to confirm your plans to attend.

The VIRTUS update training will occur on the following date: Saturday, March 26th (Meeting Room 1 @ 10:30 a.m.)

Many of our current families learned about the value of an All Saints education through a personal reference from an existing school family.  Again this year we would like to reward you for promoting the school to your family and friends!  Through the New Student Referral Program, your family can receive a $200.00 tuition credit for referring a new family to All Saints Catholic School.  For more information about this program, please see the attached flyer.  Help to spread the word about the success and tradition of All Saints Catholic School!

All Saints Alumni Reunion – April 9th

Would you like to be involved in planning an alumni reunion for our 1998 – 2002 graduates? All Saints will be sponsoring an alumni reunion on Saturday, April 9th from 4-7:00 p.m. for alumni who graduated in 1998, 1999, 2000, 2001, and 2002. If you would like to join our reunion committee and help make this event a fun and rewarding experience for our alumni, please contact Janis DeVore at jdevore@allsaintsva.org.

Calendar Change ~ ½ Day in May Rescheduled

The half day of school published in our calendar for Monday, May 9th has been moved to Friday, May 6th.  In light of the fact that a large number of students in grades 4-8 will be attending the Band Trip on May 6th, from an instructional standpoint it makes good sense to move the half day to this date.  The EPSF Screening is still scheduled for Monday, May 9th.  As such, there will be no Pre-K or Kindergarten classes on that day as previously announced.
