Parent Letter Sep. 7, 2018
Dear Parents/ Guardians,
Thanks to all of you who were present for the Parent Orientation/Open House on Wednesday. Your presence at this event and your involvement in your children's education sends a very strong message to your children that you are interested in their academic progress and that you want o work with their teachers. Your children's teachers want only the best for your children, as do you. Be sure that your children are completing their homework, that they are spending 15-20 minutes reading each evening, and that they are getting a good night's rest. All of these contribute to your children's success.
This Sunday Grace's Proud Parents is having a Taco Sale after all the Masses. Thanks to all who donated money and food items and volunteered to help on Sunday. Your support is greatly appreciated. The profit from this fund raiser will be put towards the teachers' Christmas fund. Please come to Mass and then stop and enjoy one or more delicious tacos.
Next Saturday is our first "Family Mass" for this school year. The Mass will be celebrated at 4:00. Students in grades 2 and 7 will be actively ministering as readers and gift bearers. We will also have a children's choir compromised of students in grades 3-8. We encourage all of our families to participate in this Mass. Following the Mass there will be an ice cream social in the hall and an opportunity to meet Ms. Frazzini, the assistant principal.
The tuition payment for September is due next Friday. Please pay your tuition promptly and avoid paying a late fee of $30. A late fee is assessed when you have not paid your tuition within five days of the due date.
Each month we will recognize students as part of the "Students of the Month" program. The "Students of the Month" for September are: Aiden Collazo, Alex Corrales, Maliyah- Bell Torres.

Our fall fund raiser will begin on Wednesday, Sept. 19. We will be selling items from Charleston Wrap and also World's Finest chocolate bars. To help us determine how many boxes of candy bars to order, a form is being sent home today. If you intend to sell the candy bars, please return the form by Wednesday. Please do not order more boxes than you think you can sell.
Each year you must notify parents of the presence of asbestos in the school. This letter is being sent home today with this parent letter.
In Sunday's Gospel, Jesus places His fingers in the ears of a man who cannot hear or speak. His healing touch opens the man's ears so that he can hear the voices of his family and friends perhaps for the first time. Even more importantly, the man hears the word of God and believes it.
Through His Spirit and His Church, Jesus opens our ears to the truth and empowers us to share with others.
COME TO MASS ON SUNDAY, OPEN TO GOD'S WORD AND READY TO SHARE IT.
