Pto Meeting Notes 7-30-19
Registration is now open for fall sports of the 2019-2020 school year! Registration is currently open for Girls Volleyball (grades 3-8) and Boys and Girls Cross Country (grades 3-8).
If your son or daughter is interested in participating, please respond to Cory Winnike at firstname.lastname@example.org with their name, grade, sport interested in, and parental contact information. Our first and foremost priority is to have enough interest to have our students compete for SCBA, but, if we are unable to field a complete team, we will look at combining grades as well as partner with other schools.
We will be looking for volunteers to help coach our student athletes, so if you have any experience, know someone that does, or are willing to help out, please let Cory Winnike know as well.
funds request- library
Literacy is the core of a Classical Education. We have worked this summer to organize and update the school library. As our scholars learn to read and comprehend complex texts, think critically and synthesize information from multiple sources, they will become more willing to take academic risks and become life-long readers and learners. As we encourage our scholars to read, we need funds to purchase books to update our library to enable our students to have accessibility to a variety of books from the classics, current authors, and award winning books. In addition, we need to purchase leveled readers to help us ensure all of our scholars are successful readers and writers.
If you have any questions contact Elaine Nick at email@example.com. Thank you!

A Mother's Prayer for Teachers
Thank you for the gift of good teachers. Thank you for men and women willing to take on the responsibility of shaping the next generation of thinkers and doers.
As the school year starts, grant them strength and courage to face what lies ahead.
Spark their imaginations with ways to reach even the most difficult learner.
When the days are long and the challenges seem too many, grant them peace.
When things go smoothly, let them see Your guiding hand and give You thanks.
When they’re spending their money to make my child’s learning environment more successful and enjoyable, grant them treasures in Heaven.
Please, Lord, give them the grace they need to see You in every preschooler, grade schooler and high-schooler.
Help them respond to the individual needs of each child to the best of their ability.
Protect them from harm, but make them brave and knowledgeable in times of crisis.
May they find strength for the journey in each smile, hug, high five, and newly learned skill.
I know that their job is often a thankless and incredibly demanding one. Help me to support them the best that I can so that my child will know how much I value his/her education and the hard work of others.
Please bless the vocations of my child’s teachers, coaches, administrators, and school staff. Help them truly know what a difference they make in the lives of each child they encounter.
And at the end of each day, may they find rest and replenishment to rise and do it all again tomorrow.
Saint Mother Theodore Guerin, pray for them.
Saint Jean Baptist de la Salle, patron of teachers, pray for them.
