Dear Families of SAEMS,
We had a fantastic first week of school and it was nice to meet so many of you! Just a reminder that we have our Meet the Teacher Night this week on Tuesday from 6:00-8:00pm. We will begin in the Wellness Center and then dismiss you all to visit your child's classroom(s). It will be a time to meet the teacher, gain information, and ask some general questions. The teachers will have to accommodate all of the families they serve so if you have more detailed questions, it may be beneficial to schedule an appointment.
Our 2016-2017 Student/Parent Handbook will be published by Tuesday afternoon and I encourage you take a look. Forms will be coming home with your child to sign and send back acknowledging that you have read the handbook and can adhere to it. We will be starting our After School Program this week and after speaking to some families we made the following changes from last year (directly from the updated 2016-2017 Handbook):
"As a service to our parents, especially those who work full-time, after school care is offered for $5.00/day from Monday through Thursday (3:30-5:30 pm). The program is held on campus. Students will have a snack, do homework and enjoy recreational time. The school principal administers this program along with a staff member.
After 5:30 pm a late pick up fee of $1.00 per minute per student will be assessed per student. Students who are not picked up by 3:30 pm (car-line) will be sent to the afterschool program. Parents need to sign out their child upon arrival (afterschool program classroom). Parents will be charged a daycare fee of $5.00 per day. Students participating in sports who use the after-school program after practice will be charge $5.00 as well. Chronic late pick-up (more than three times after 5:30) will result in dismissal from the After-School Care Program for that school year. A statement will be sent at the end of the month. If the statement is not paid, the remainder will be added to your tuition balance in the business office."
Lastly, we will celebrate the first of our Friday school Masses for the year beginning September 2nd at 8:10am! We encourage all families that can make it to come if possible. I hope you have had a great first week and a relaxing weekend!
Sincerely in Christ,
