Please keep Mrs. Harkleroad in your prayers. She had knee surgery earlier this week and will be out for the remainder of the school year. Mrs. Wendy Neading will take over her duties for the balance of the school year. Several substitute teachers will handle the physical education duties for Mrs. Neading.
Our fifth and sixth grade students are at Camp Christopher Thursday and Friday. They are scheduled to return between 6:00 and 6:30 pm. We will send out a message when the bus is on the road home.
This week’s envelope includes the 2017-18 school calendar. Please keep this calendar in mind when planning family vacations!
Immaculate Conception School and the Diocese of Columbus are continuing to improve and expand the implementation of our Standards Based Grading system. We will have a revised report card next year that will provide more detailed, accurate information about student performance. More information about Standards Based Grading can be found on the Diocese of Columbus Office of Schools website, www.cdeducation.org. The report cards will continue to reflect academic work only. We will continue to issue a life skills report that will provide feedback to parents and students on behavior issues such as class participation, attitude, and respect.
April 30 is the deadline to apply for the EdChoice Scholarship. Families with students entering kindergarten through fourth grade could be eligible for this income based scholarship. For example, a family of four with an income of $49,200 or less could qualify. Application forms are available in the school office.
We encourage all families to register early for next school year. Our pre-school and pre-kindergarten classes usually fill up very quickly. Registration packets are available on the Admissions page of this website and in the school office.
We are continuing to accept applications for tuition assistance through the FACTS program. We will notify all parents in the spring the amount of tuition due for next year after taking into account scholarships and assistance.
