BOY SCOUT TROOP 1037 needs your help! Every year the Boy Scouts put up a beautiful luminary display for the Christmas Eve and Holy Thursday masses. The Boy Scouts are looking to upgrade the display from paper bags to large-size Clorox/Lysol wipe containers which will be much more weather resistant. If you have any empty containers of the larger size (think Costco size, 75+ wipes) containers please consider sending them via kidmail to Max Petrosky, D8. It takes approximately 250 luminaries to light the paths to the church and chapel so any contributions would be greatly appreciated throughout the year. Thank you!

 

PRINCIPAL’S CORNER

It has been an enjoyable first week of school! The teachers have been very complimentary about the behavior and attitudes of students. Students have been very respectful of one another at recess and on the playground. This year all have been living the St. Hugo motto “As followers of Jesus, it must be different with us.”

Congrats to the 5th and 6th grade JV football team! They defeated the Raiders by a touchdown in the first game of the year. Rumor has it that it is the first win in the past 20 for the JV team vs. the Raiders. Great job Vikings and good luck this season!

I am excited to be at a school with so many valuable staff members besides the classroom teachers. I have been impressed with the Resource Teachers Mrs. Kowalewski, Mrs. Leahy, Mrs. Schoenfeldt and our Counselor, Mrs. Bartoli. They do a wonderful job assisting the classroom teachers to meet all student needs throughout the school. They come up with strategies to best help students learn and make sure to maintain good communication with staff and parents. We are fortunate to have such a caring staff.

The school and PTG are looking to add a marketing committee. Please contact Mr. Vincler if you are interested at joseph.vincler@sthugoschool.org. I want to be sure people know that St. Hugo’s is different in a truly wonderful way.

I am looking forward to meeting the middle school parents next Wednesday evening at 7:00 for the Middle School Meet the Faculty Evening. The K-5 Meet the Faculty Meeting is Wednesday, September 21 at 7:00. Please sign up for the fun run. Many students will beat the principal in the 5K race on September 17. I have heard great things about this fun event!

The Mission of St. Hugo of the Hills School is to provide students with an educational experience in which the teachings of the Catholic faith are instilled, nurtured, and demonstrated. These teachings constitute an integral part of the school’s academic program and the St. Hugo community. Strengthened by the values inherent in these teachings, students and staff are challenge to live with the conviction that,

as followers of Jesus, it must be different with us.
