Launching Our New “School Family” Program
For me, and I bet for many of you, All Saints is more than just a school - it’s a community, and an extension of the family. At All Saints, we have always enjoyed strong bonds of affection for one another, and our tight-knit community and warmth is often cited by parents, teachers, students, alumni, and even prospective families after visiting our school. Coretta Scott King said “The greatness of a community is most accurately measured by the compassionate actions of its members.” If such is the measurement of a community’s greatness, All Saints must indeed be considered great.
It seems like just moments ago, our children started the 2017-2018 school year. And now, here we are, already well into the first week of June, which is surely a crazy and exciting month for everyone. While the last day of school is only a week away, I’d like to remind our All Saints families that The Fund for All Saints campaign does continue through the end of the month. For those of you who have already made a gift to our amazing school - Thank You! And if you haven’t had the opportunity to contribute, please strongly consider joining this important effort prior to June 30th.
Please know that every gift counts. Regardless of size, each donation brings us that much closer to the ultimate goal of 100% parent participation. Every donation truly matters. If the teachers and staff of All Saints can achieve a participation rate of 100%, then we, as parents, should certainly step up and do the same!
Gifts to The Fund for All Saints can be made online or by check.
During the first two weeks of February our Pre-K students operate the Valentine’s Post Office. This annual, much-loved schoolwide tradition is a Milestone Project for Pre-K, enhancing their study of community helpers and introducing the students to important aspects of financial literacy. The classroom is transformed into a post office and the students are responsible for selling stamps, sorting mail, and delivering mail throughout the school. Students in all other grades and faculty and staff participate by purchasing stamps and sending cards to others in the school.
This year, the Pre-K class raised $270 through the Valentine’s Post Office. The proceeds will be donated to the Companion Animal Placement.
Heart Health Day
Our parents on the Spirit Committee organized a Heart Health Day for students in Nursery through Grade 1 in celebration of Wear Red Day. The students engaged in a variety of activities to learn how to live a healthy life. They made hearts with messages of what makes their hearts happy; practiced exercises they can do to stay moving; learned the importance of brushing their teeth and how it helps their hearts; and identified healthy foods to eat. We are grateful to our special guest presenters for helping us kick off Heart Awareness Month!
