THANK YOU! From the Ladies of Charity; “Your recent Dodgeball and Spread the Love collections provided a VERY, VERY generous donation to The Ladies of Charity of St. Vincent DePaul Clothes Closet & Food Pantry. This money will be used to purchase basic items, such as blankets, sheets, and underwear for those in need. We are proud of you and very grateful for your continued generosity, support, and prayers. Thank you all! Keep up the good work!”
SAFETY, SAFETY, SAFETY! Parents, PLEASE, refrain from using your cell phone in the parking lot during morning drop-off and afternoon dismissal. During morning drop-off, please make sure you pull as far forward as possible to avoid backups and have your children exit from the passenger’s side of the car so they are not dodging between cars. Thank you!
MAY BOOK CLUB (the last book club of the year!) Any students in grades 406 who love to read are invited to join Mrs. Braet in the library on Fridays after school until 4:30 pm. May’s book will be Short by Holly Goldberg Sloan. We will also be watching the Wizard of Oz in book club this month to compare parts of the book with the movie. The book club will be $60 for a 3-week session (May 4, May 11, May 18). Weekly snacks, materials, and a purchased copy of the book for each student to keep will be included in the 3-week session. If interested, please contact Mrs. Braet, firstname.lastname@example.org, or send a check made payable to Katrina Braet in the amount of $60. There will be a limit of 12 students for each month’s book club.
THE 45TH ANNUAL ST. HUGO OF THE HILLS HEALING MASS, sponsored by the Altar Guild, will be held on Tuesday, May 8 at 11:00 am. A luncheon will be served after Mass in the Parish Hall. To better accommodate your needs, please RSVP to Bonnie Gentilia, 248-650-2223, or Mary Lou Kopmeyer, 248-642-2072.
THE MOVIE “SCREENAGERS” is going to be shown to St. Hugo families at 7:00 pm on Monday, May 14 in the St. Hugo School library. The cost is free for all St. Hugo families because the Quaine Family has graciously sponsored this event for the school. The film will also be shown to St. Hugo students in grades 3-8 during the day on Wednesday, May 16. The film answers many questions about social media and video game playing including what happens to student’s brains when playing these games, what happens when these devices are allowed in school and potential solutions for parents.
The movie is being shown all over the nation and we feel very blessed to be able to show it at St. Hugo School. To register to see this film, click on the website below. The cost is $0 but the experience will be invaluable! Please attend so that you can discuss these important issues with your student.

ST. HUGO IS NOW OFFERING “EDUCERE” for parents worried that their children are losing brain cells while they soak up R&R over the summer. The typical child loses two months’ worth of the math skills he gained during the school year over the summer due to lack of practice. This summer slide is especially critical for those children without access to summer learning programs, who happily spend summers on the couch in front of a television or glued to social media instead of going to camp or engaging in educational activities. If you are worried about your child taking the “summer slide”, please consider using one of the tutoring programs offered at St. Hugo, or perhaps the programs offered by Educere. Check the program listing at https://www.educere.net/myCourses.asp?pageID=20837.9878
THE KINDERGARTEN READINESS STUDENTS made their way into the main computer lab last week. After a little guidance, they were having fun and did not want to leave!
