Thank you for your attendance at the Back-to-School Night last week. It was very exciting to see the large number of parents that were able to attend. Your dedication to your child’s education is much appreciated.
At the Back-to-School Night, I spoke briefly about the Call to protect program. This is a child safety program required by the Archdiocese for all parents and parishioners that would like to volunteer in the school. The first year of volunteering requires a simple background check, viewing a 40 minute Call to Protect video, and watching the on-line video Standards of Conduct. After the first year, there is a yearly follow up video of about 20-30 minutes to view online. We value our volunteers very much. Without volunteers in the school, many of our class-room activities, fieldtrips, and extracurricular programs would not be possible. The teachers and staff appreciate you taking the time to complete these three needed steps to volunteer at Visitation, and we are very grateful for your support in the classroom. Please see the secretary for forms, information on the call to Protect video, or fieldtrip driver insurance verification forms.
Enclosed with the newsletter today is a form asking if you would like to receive your newsletter by email only or in a hard copy aswell. We want to provide families with a high level of communication while at the same time conserving as much paper as possible. Please return the form in your clear office envelope.
Two events we look forward to this week are Picture Day on Thursday, Sept. 23rd and the all-school Color Wheel art activity Friday afternoon. Please remind your child to bring a paint shirt for the fun Friday art! Also Saturday, Sept. 25th is the Sauerkraut making party. Please support
our school by helping with the dinner preparations.
May God bless you!
