BABYSITTING IS NOW BEING OFFERED DURING THE MOVIE “SCREENAGERS”, which 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 of both the movie and the babysitting is free for all St. Hugo families. The movie has been graciously sponsored by the Quaine family. 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, 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. If you need babysitting, please contact Mrs. Ann Bartoli,, and let her know the names and ages of the children you are bringing.

WE ARE EXCITED TO ANNOUNCE that Mrs. Brandt applied and was approved for a grant to create a butterfly garden in the lower D courtyard.

We are starting with a small fundraiser selling milkweed seeds. Seeds are available for $2/packet. If interested, please contact the office.

LOST AND FOUND Any winter items in the lost and found that are not claimed by Friday, May 11 will be donated to the Ladies of Charity – hats, gloves, boots, snow pants, etc.

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:

THE 2018 FUN RUN COMMITTEE is looking for volunteers to shadow this year and join the committee for 2019. Fun Run is a popular family event held in September. If interested or just want more information, please contact Deanne Seifert,, or Ann Lazar,

WE HAVE RAISED OVER $1,700 for our school this year by sending in Box Tops. That is amazing! You can continue supporting St. Hugo in this fun and easy way all month by sending in your Box Tops until June 1 – they will still be credited to our school so let’s keep on clipping! Many of the Box Tops on your products will expire in early June, so let’s send them in while we still can. Feel free to contact Gina Rook, with any questions.

4TH GRADE MATH ENRICHMENT STUDENTS participated in an activity called “Principals Locked Out Multi-Step Word Problems”. The students were on a top-secret mission! They were locked out of a room that contained Smarties and fruit snacks and they had to solve word problems to get to the next clue. The word problems were encoded in a barcode and they needed to use the QR Reader on the Ipad in order to find out what the word problem was. In the end, as a class, they had to find the right card that had all their final answers in the right order to unlock the “door” for the smarties and fruit snacks. They did a great job and were able to unlock the door and get their treat!
