Kindergarten Update

Dear Parents,             November 5, 2021

St. Philip Neri will hold their annual Book Fair Sunday ,November 14th- November 19th. It will be held in the St. Philip Neri O’Brien Hall every day from 2:30-6:30PM. We encourage parents to take your children to the Book Fair. Please make sure to visit the book fair and support SPN!  

There will be no Book Order for November or December due to the book fair so get some holiday shopping done in advance!  ***In regards to our October Book Order:  unfortunately, Scholastic is experiencing delays with shipments.  We hope to have them to you before Thanksgiving.

Your assistance is needed in connection with two areas: eating lunch at school and outdoor behavior. Often students are not cleaning up after themselves; there is garbage left on the floor and students are not following our student learning expectations by being respectful and following procedures. We ask that you talk with your child about polite manners for eating. In addition, if you are ordering Choice Lunch for your child, please have your child pick the foods they like. There is a lot of waste when children have a lunch that they don’t like or won’t eat. 

Please continue the conversation with your child that they are not to touch (hugs, pushing, pinching etc.) classmates.  There is a lot of loud and rough play that we are trying to control.  The construction for the new play structure is scheduled to start Monday the 8th!  

With the holiday season quickly approaching, we would ask that you please advise us and the office if your child will be missing any days of school due to travel.  Unfortunately, zoom check-ins are only for quarantining students.
