You may be aware or not that our tuition only covers about 75-80% of our costs and expenses. The Advancement Department has been hard at work finding grants that will give our students the extras not budgeted for this year. We recently received grants for Kelly’s Band to order new custom made uniforms, our Math Department will have an opportunity for some professional development by attending The Conference for the Advancement of Mathematics Teaching this summer and the Science Department just had all of their microscopes cleaned and maintained for the first time in 10 years!
Monday, February 18 is President’s Day. The Catholic schools in the Diocese will have a staff In-Service Day. Students will have a holiday, while teachers will meet at Kelly High School for professional development.
Skills for Life CPR Class will be held on Tuesday, February 19 in the Creative Works Building for junior and senior students. Classes will be from 10-11 AM and 11:30 – 1:30 PM. Students will become certified in CPR and First Aid. Please encourage your child to register!
All sophomores and their parents are invited to attend the Sophomore Counseling Meeting on February 19 at 6:00 PM in the Cafeteria.
