Finally the weather is cooperating with the calendar!
I’m so proud of our 3rd-8th graders for toughing through the ELA and Math State tests. As of this morning, they are done! The writing portion of the ELA has been scored for some of the classes and we are more than pleased with the results. A special thanks to all our teachers for monitoring the students taking the tests, the halls, and the students not taking the tests.
Thank you to all the parents that are putting together the Father/Daughter dance on Saturday. It sounds like it is going to be a full house! Speaking of dances, the Student Council is sponsoring an “Aloha to Spring” dance on April 29.
If anyone is doing Spring cleaning and is coming across jumpers (or other uniform pieces) that are too small or no longer worn, please feel free to donate them. We will have our uniform closet open in May just before the Spring concert.
Our first graders are sponsoring a fundraiser for the SPCA. This will include our Dress down day for $1 on April 22 and April 29 and a week of collecting items that our fury friends can use. Please see the Wednesday envelope for donation ideas.
Our 8th grade Ribbon Day Mass is April 28. Our ribbons are a Queen of Heaven tradition that mark this special time in our 8th graders’ lives. Many of our 8th graders have received academic scholarships and financial aid awards to their Catholic High School of choice totaling over $140,000. We are proud of their accomplishments and their chosen destinations. Looking ahead, our 7th graders have a High School Recruitment Fair on April 26 with other Southtown’s middle schools at St. Ambrose.
Don’t forget to mark your calendars for the first Fine Arts Night here at Queen of Heaven on May 3. From 6:00-8:00 PM you can come view your child’s artwork professional matted, displayed, and available for purchase. Also available is a host of art, photography, music, and cultural interactive activities to do with your family. Hope to see you there!
God bless us on our journey together, Mary Damico, Principal
