Times and dates are subject to change. I am not always aware of things going on in the high school or junior high so if something is not listed please make sure to check with the high school for those dates and times of events.
PTC/ABC Morning Meeting:
The school’s PTC and ABC meetings will be held on Thursday September 18, 2014 at 7:15am; yes you read that right. Our PTC and ABC organizations will have sitters outside and will provide juice and donuts for the kids. Please make an effort to attend these organizations do so much for our school and they could use your help, support, ideas and contributions.
CPR Classes for Teachers:
Everyone at St. Edmund Catholic School would like to thank Acadian Medical Center/Mercy Regional Medical Center, Ms. Michele Fruge and Ms. Phyllis Faul for teaching CPR to our teachers and staff. They did a wonderful job and I know our St. Edmund Catholic School family appreciates them coming and helping us learn this life-saving technique. Wonderful hospital with wonderful people and we sincerely thank them for their help and support.
Pre-K through Sixth Grade Amended Pep-Rally Policy:
Parents, because of the large number of students checking out and the disruption of our classes for pep-rallies we have been forced to amend our policy. From this point forward (Thursday, September 04, 2014) the new policy shall be:
We will make exceptions for “special pep-rallies”. In most cases for “special pep-rallies” our teachers take the students to the pep-rally as a class. If you have an elementary child that has an older brother or sister receiving or doing something special we will of course expect them to be at the pep-rally watching their older brother or sister.
Grandparent day will be held on Wednesday, September 24, 2014. All our grandparents are invited to attend. The day will begin with the elementary school mass at 8:15am and then the parents will have refreshments in the school’s cafeteria. They will then join their grandchildren in their classrooms for a short time. Mrs. Mary Joubert and Mrs. Carla Miller are running this project for us and we thank them very much.
5th through 8th Grade T-Jay Football Car Wash:
There will be a T-Jay Football car wash on Sunday September 14, 2014 in the cafeteria parking lot from 8:00am through 1:00pm. Please come out and support our T-Jays.
Booster Club Meetings:
Our sports booster club meetings will be held the Wednesday before each home game. Our next meeting will be on Wednesday September 17, 2014. The meetings are held at the Northwest Community Center with the social beginning at 6:30pm.
High School Week One Football v. Rayne:
Week one our Blue Jays did not come away with a victory at least not on the scoreboard. The areas I think we did win in were that of character building, leadership, determination and heart. By standing on the sidelines I could easily tell that our boys never gave up. After the game several boys told me that they did not do the little things they needed to do to win. I am so proud of our boys they never gave up despite the odds. I think they are all winners and I think our seniors will do whatever is necessary to get this team where it deserves to be. “Blue Jay Spirit Never Dies” and I know they will learn from this game and get better each week. GO BLUE JAYS, I am proud of my boys.
Home Football Concession Help:
Our concession workers could use some help for high school home football games. If you are willing and able to help please contact the booster club for dates and times. The hours you work in the concession stand will count toward your service hours. If you or someone you know is interested in helping please contact Mrs. Mary Miller at 580-0797. These concession workers are having a great time working in the concession stand.
Thank you and GO BLUE JAYS!!!
7th and 8th T-Jays Football:
I had an opportunity to watch the T-Jays in their Jamboree game on Saturday. They played really well in their first action of the season against St. Leo. The final score was tied at zero in a great defensive struggle. Both teams had their opportunities but no one could score.
7th and 8th T-Jays @ LCA:
The T-Jay game at LCA was rained out on Tuesday. I know the boys were disappointed and ready to play. At this time I have not heard of a make-up date. Our T-Jay cheerleaders did a really great job at the pep-rally firing the boys up and getting them ready to play.
5th and 6th Grade Football:
Our 5th and 6th graders start their season with a Jamboree game at LCA on Saturday at 1:00pm. I look forward to seeing our 5th and 6th graders in action. Most of their games will be played on Saturday’s so if at all possible make plans to attend.
Principal and/or Assistant Principal Comments:
This is for the men that read the weekly update or to the wives that want to get their husbands into something that will benefit the family. Last year I began going to a very special meeting each Tuesday morning beginning at 5:30am. I went for several weeks and then just suddenly stopped going. I used the excuse that it was “too early” or “I was just too tired”. The truth it was neither. I was too lazy or maybe I succumbed to the evil one. Someone I have a great deal of respect for (Phillip) asked me on Monday to return for the second season of meetings; and I did. It so energized me to be at this meeting. These meeting are for men and it is called “That Man is You” (TMIY). It teaches everything from leadership to compassion in a way that God has called us to be the leaders of our families. I would like to encourage every man to come and build on their faith, hear the testimony of others and be a follower of Jesus while making your family life stronger. “That Man is You” happens on Tuesday mornings at 5:30am through 7:00am in the St. Anthony Parish Hall. I hope to see you there.
