All new parents and welcoming committee volunteers are invited to enjoy “Coffee with the Principal” on Tuesday, September 10 beginning at 9:00 AM in the Parish Activities Center. Following a brief presentation, there will be time for questions and discussion about our school community and its many programs. Babysitting services will be offered in an adjacent meeting room. Plan to attend and meet other new families who have recently joined our community!
The Cafeteria/Lunchroom is in need of volunteers to assist with serving milk, food, ice cream and smiles. We are in need of volunteers who can make a regular once a week commitment but welcome bimonthly or once a month as well. The cafeteria serves each day from 11:00 AM to 1:00 PM, there are multiple time slots on each day. All cafeteria volunteers must be Virtus certified and all NEW cafeteria volunteers must complete a brief health department training.
All available slots and health department training sessions are listed on Help Counter:
If you are interested but would like more specific information, please contact Carol Rice email@example.com. Thank you for considering serving the school in this very unique and fulfilling role.
All Saints 2019-2020 School Year Theme:
Inspired by a passage from Scripture (Matthew 19:26) in which Jesus tells His disciples that for God everything is possible, our theme will serve as a reminder that our Salvation is a work of grace wholly dependent upon the love of God. It is a reminder that our faith is the greatest gift that we have received and one that we live and share within our school community.
Additionally, the theme will provide a source of daily inspiration for our students as they strive to not only “do their best” in all that they pursue, but more importantly to “be their best” in responding to God’s call in their lives.
See our VideoChat page for a video of Mr. Conroy introducing the school theme during a special assembly and offering two challenges for our students to complete to start off the school year.
Thanks to the success of the 2018-2019 Annual Fund and an additional contribution of $5,000 from a private donor, we will be purchasing three state-of-the-art ActivPanels to replace the ActivBoards in the art room, middle school religion room and computer lab. Thank you to those who supported our Annual Fund for helping to make this upgrade possible in three of our classrooms!
Since we reached our 2018-2019 Annual Fund goal of raising $15,000 to benefit STEM programs in our school, we will also be expanding our Robotics Program in the coming year as announced previously.
Our sincere thanks and gratitude to all who supported our 2018-2019 Annual Fund campaign through gifts of prayer, involvement and financial support!
In support of our commitment to STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering & Math) and to provide our students with an opportunity to compete at an even higher level, All Saints will host a two-day regional Middle School Robotics competition on Saturday, November 9, in partnership with Seton School which will be hosting a high school tournament. All Saints Robotics Team is led by Mr. Roy.
We look forward to welcoming numerous middle school and high school teams for what we hope will become a new tradition. Again, thanks to your generous support of our Annual Fund which is allowing us to expand our Robotics involvement.
With the opening of the new school year only days away, I wish to share with you an updated copy of the One-to-One Technology Handbook.
All middle school parents are asked to review and discuss the policies and procedures with their children.
Signed copies of the Responsible Use Agreement, Technology Support and Fee Form, Handbook Acknowledgment Form and optional Insurance Form may be submitted to Mrs. Pettyjohn, our technology teacher, on Friday during Orientation.
