“ You may not always end up where you thought you were going; but you will always end up where you are meant to be.”
June 15, 2018
Dear St. Stan’s Families:
This time of year is always filled with so many conflicting emotions. We are all exhausted and short tempered by the volume of things that take place as we end the school year. We are anxious and excited about the summer days that we will spend relaxing and having fun with friends and family; and we are sad to leave our friends some for ever and some just for the summer. Just like the quote says today we are right where we are meant to be.
In your white envelope, you will find the tentative calendar for the 2018-2019 school year. Please note it mentions that Easter break will be where we make up snow days, if the need arises. I ask you not to make plans to travel that week just in case. Over the summer we begin preparing for September. We will be making revisions in the handbook; so please look out for some fairly significant changes at the start of the school year. Additionally, we will be eliminating principal’s list and honor roll for the 2018-2019 school year and revamping academic and citizenship awards.
Your child also received their summer work packet, much of this work is done online. This summer work helps students counteract, what educators call, the summer slide and allows students to enter school in September ready to move forward in their studies. I strongly suggest that your children spread this work out over the whole summer and not wait till the bitter end to complete it. It will help alleviate stress for you and your child and it will help maintain their skills more consistently.
The school office will be open from 8:30 am to 12:30 pm Monday through Friday throughout the summer. May your summer break be peaceful, restful, fun-filled and offer you time to grow together as families. You will remain in my prayers till we come together again in September.
In His Peace,
Elena Malinconico, Principal
