I hope this note finds you enjoying the Veterans Day holiday.  Please remember and give thanks today for the contributions of the millions of men and women who have served our great nation.

With conferences yesterday and today, the first quarter is almost behind us.  Almost, because as many of you know, a lot of teachers have been out of commission and we still have a great number of conferences to complete, so we will work on scheduling more meetings in the weeks to come.  In the meantime, report cards have been published for all students in grades one through eight, and these have been emailed and also are available on the Parent Plus Portal.  Contact the office if you need login information for that portal.

The past week tested the resilience of our staff with teachers out for health and family reasons.  Between our dedicated and superb substitute teachers, the para-educators, and the admin staff, we were able to keep instruction humming along, but this also prompts me to reach out and ask if any among you would like to become a substitute teacher.  Please email or call me directly if you’d like to discuss this further.

Remember to log into TADS and complete your application for ADW financial assistance since the deadline for current families to do so is one month away.  The parish requires this in order to be considered for our tuition assistance.  There are new events for your consideration below so read on, and have a great three-day weekend.  As always, stand fast in the faith!

As Catholics, we are called by God to reach out and build relationships of love and justice. This is taught to us by Jesus Christ, who served and identified himself with the poor, the injured, and the marginalized in our world. One way our school works to promote social justice is through the ADL’s No Place for Hate program. The goal of the No Place for Hate program is to promote an understanding of the value and dignity of all members of our school community as well as encourage work towards greater justice and respect for those in our surrounding community. In the coming months, each classroom will be signing the No Place for Hate pledge. We will also be looking for parent and student volunteers who would like to help with No Place for Hate events and the committee. If you or your child are interested in serving on our No Place for Hate Committee, please fill out the following Google Form: https://forms.gle/onWEtasuhy717Kpq7

To learn more about  No Place for Hate® at Saint Bernadette Catholic School please contact Margaret Rodriguez at mrodriguez@saintbernadetteschool.org. With your help, we will continue to strive to walk in the example of Jesus Christ, to profess love for others, and to make our school community a safe and welcoming space for all.

It’s that time of year again! We are excited to bring back a special tradition to Saint Bernadette School: The Christmas Store! The Christmas Store is a pop-up store for students to pick out presents for their loved ones. We are planning to have the store up and running on Monday, December 12th. 

We will need your help to make the store a success so be sure to take a look at the email sent out by the HSA for information on how to donate items. Please feel free to reach out to Justine Fortkiewicz   justine.marieva@gmail.com or Kristie Weatherby kweatherby@saintbernadetteschool.org with any questions.
