Happy New Year to you all! I hope you, and your families, had a restful and blessed Christmas. We are nearing the half-way point of the year and now is a good time to remind your children of the importance of staying dedicated to their learning. Nativity students need to continue to complete homework, classroom assignments and consistently review notes and information from their day. Following these simple steps will allow students to earn the best grades they can. Also, the importance of daily school attendance should not be overlooked. Please be certain to get your children to school on time and daily. Unless a child is ill they should be present for school.
-Parents of families that are anticipating enrolling a child in Pre-K for the 2019-2020 school year please contact the main office-662-7572. Enrollment for Pre-K typically fills-up quickly and we would like to assure that our current families get a spot in the program.
-The Joe DeMarco Basketball Tournament is schedule for late January (more details to follow). School family support of the event is always important. Funds raised by the event help provide various items around the school. In the past the Joe DeMarco funds have purchased classroom technology, physical education equipment, classroom items and most recently were used for the painting of the gym and the new pads, on the walls, in the gym.
This year the Joe DeMarco Committee would like your help with the sponsorship of the event. If the committee is able to raise $5000.00 for the sponsorship of the event students, faculty, staff and principals will not have school on Monday February 4, 2019! (Convenient, that it is the day after the Super Bowl, hmmm…) I hope you will all attend some of the great basketball that is played during the tournament and also, help with the sponsorship.
