wEEKLY NEWSLETTER - APRIL 11, 2019

Dear St. Constance School Families,

All are welcome and invited to join us at our monthly Family Mass this coming Sunday, April 14, 2019 at 10:30 a.m.

You are also cordially invited to pray the Stations of the Cross with the school children tomorrow, Friday, April 12th beginning at 2:15 p.m.

 Please tell your neighbors and friends who are considering a school for their child, that St. Constance School is currently taking registrations for the upcoming 2019-2020 school year. Please share with them the wonderful things our school has to offer. Don’t forget about the School Board incentive of $250.00 applicable to your tuition for any registering family who names you as the referring family.

Enclosed in today’s folder, please find your child’s Mid-Trimester Progress Report for students in grades 1-8. Please review and return a signed copy either by tomorrow, April 12th, or no later than Thursday, April 25, 2019 upon our return from Easter break.

We have now concluded our week of ACT Aspire Testing, along with any makeup tests for students in grades 3-8. Your child’s test results will be shared with you when received; most probably in late spring or early summer. I would especially like to thank our testing coordinator, Mrs. Kelly Mikrut for all her work.  

St. Constance School’s “An Evening in Paris” event is fast approaching and will be held on May 4, 2019 in the Handzel Center Gymnasium. Join us for some wonderful dance music by The Revolutionary Swing Orchestra, some delicious French Cuisine, and an assortment of delectable desserts. Tickets are $50.00 each and are available in the school office or following weekend Masses in Borowczyk Hall. Make sure to purchase your Car Raffle Tickets as well. One lucky winner will be the recipient of our $2,500.00 cash “Early Bird” prize sponsored by our School Patron, Ms. Leigh-Anne Kazma, and will be drawn at the Evening in Paris event. Raffle tickets are 1/$10 or 10/$80. Please remember to also donate towards your child’s classroom gift basket if you haven’t already done so. We hope you are able to support this cause. Put on your dancing shoes and bring your appetites.  I hope to see many of you there!

Last week information was shared with you regarding the opening of the 2019-2020 school year. Today, I have enclosed the archdiocesan approved full schedule of calendar dates for the 2019-2020 school year. Please keep this as a reference for the upcoming school year.

This is another friendly reminder that your 15 hours of required volunteer service or the $350.00 fee will be due on Tuesday, April 30, 2019. Unfortunately, no partial hours will be accepted. Any hours worked after April 30, 2019 will be applied towards the 2019-2020 school year.

Summer will be here before you know it! What are your plans to keep your children engaged and busy learning? Have you heard about our St. Constance Summer Camp? It is offering a variety of fun filled activities including Field Trips, Guest Speakers and Presentations, Themes of the Day/Week, with optional Before/After Care available. We will once again be holding our camp at St. Rosalie Parish, 6750 W. Montrose Ave., Harwood Heights, Il. 60706. Best of all, our camp will be managed and coordinated by our very own certified teachers. Schedules are flexible, so choose days/weeks you need before they fill up! Please see the enclosed camp information or visit www.scsummercamp.weebly.com, Facebook, or Instagram for more details.

This is to remind you that per the school calendar, school will be closed for spring break April 15-24, 2019. Please note that this is an extended break, as all archdiocesan schools will be attending the NCEA Convention hosted this year in Chicago. School will resume on Thursday, April 25, 2019.

During our upcoming spring break, we celebrate Administrative Professionals Day. I would like to take this opportunity and thank Mrs. Agatha Kasprzyk and Mrs. Monika Rosol for all their assistance and hard work. I am personally grateful for their service and wish them a special day in their honor.

Thank you to all who were able to join us and support our recent Restaurant Spirit Night Out at Portillo’s. St. Constance School received a check in the amount of $312.00 for our participation.

This is a reminder that tomorrow is a scheduled Special Lunch and Raffle Day. If you did not preorder a lunch for your child, please send one from home, as there will be no regular food service available.

Finally, on behalf of the entire Faculty and Staff, I would like to wish you and your loved ones a Happy and Blessed Easter.

Have a pleasant weekend.

Sincerely,

Eva M. Panczyk
