If your child is not scheduled to be screened but you would like them to be, please complete the attached form and turn it in to the office.

PRINCIPAL’S CORNER

It was an exciting weekend of athletics for all of the Viking teams. Good luck this season to the volleyball and soccer teams as several of those teams had their first games. Keep up the great effort! I have been impressed how the school is upgraded as a result of the PTG fundraising. All of our basketball hoops were completely redone and look brand new. The school Wi-Fi and bandwidth were strengthened this summer which will help long-term with technology capabilities. Mrs. Ryan is happy to share our password with parents that are frequently at school. These upgrades are a result of your hard work. Thank you! It was nice to meet so many kind middle school families this past Wednesday for the Middle School Meet the Faculty Night. The teachers gave a concise outline of their expectations for the year. I am looking forward to the K-5 Faculty Night at 7:00 on Wednesday, September 21 in the gym. Mr. Don and Mrs. Debbie Klein do a fantastic job scheduling morning parking lot duty. It is important for the safety of the students that parents are at their proper spots. Please make sure to attend the days you are assigned. The safety of our students is a top priority. A school has many important staff members. Mrs. Tedesco and Mrs. Grace do an outstanding job in the cafeteria. Mr. Winowiecki and Mrs. McLaughlin do a diligent job of keeping the students safe at recess. Mrs. Gulvezan does a great job with the Latchkey Program. St. Hugo of the Hills School has many excellent team players! Please come and support the Fun Run on Saturday. It is the second largest fundraiser for the school. It is a fun fundraising event for the whole family. You can come out for the event whether you run or not. I know that my family is looking forward to it!
