NEWS YOU CAN USE FROM MRS. TOMASZEWSKI- OCTOBER 16th

News You Can Use from Mrs. Tomaszewski

October 16, 2020

 Dear Sacred Heart Parents,

Thank you for your support of our school walk-a-thon!  It was so much fun!  The students, teachers and staff had a blast walking to raise money for our wonderful school!  KUDOS to our parent volunteers who graciously worked at each corner crossing the students and keeping them safe.  We could not have done it without you!  We are so lucky to have such special parents who are willing to lend a hand.  We will announce the winners and our total raised on Monday. 

NO SCHOOL ON TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 3RD

Due to the Election and the fact that Sacred Heart School is used as a Polling Place, we will not have school on Tuesday, November 3rd.  Please mark your calendars.  This was not originally a day off, but due to our Covid Safety Protocols, we cannot have students and staff in the building that day with the voters and election judges.  After the election is over, the hall and bathrooms will be cleaned and sanitized before school begins the next day.

 

Taffy Apple Sales

Our FSA is sponsoring a Taffy Apple and Chocolate Pretzel sale.  All ordering information is attached.  Orders and payment are due no later than Wednesday, October 28th.  If you purchase a case (or cases) of Apples or Pretzels, 50% of your purchase will go toward your mandatory $350 per family fundraising fee for the year.  (Only FULL cases will count for you to get the credit). You can buy a case or cases and sell them to family and friends!  Pick up is on 11/13 in the late afternoon.  Pick-up times will be communicated via the FSA to those who purchase (there is no school on this day due to teacher Professional Development). A second pick up opportunity will be held on Sunday, 11/15 after the 9:30am Family Mass. 

 

FREE HOT LUNCH FOR THE REMAINDER OF THE 2020-2021 SCHOOL YEAR!

The USDA announced that free meals will be available for the students (both in-person and e-learning) for the remainder of the 2020-2021 school year. God is good!  I’m grateful, as I’m sure you are, for this opportunity for our families to save some money this year and for our students to be provided these meals!

 Art Supply needed

Ms. Natalia Yarbrough will be our new art teacher this year.  She has requested that each student purchase their own watercolor paint set.  (Preferably Crayola brand, but if that is not possible, whatever you can find.  I do know they sell watercolors at the Dollar Store as well, just not Crayola brand, but they should work just fine.).

TAX CREDIT & MATCHING GIFT PROGRAM

The State of Illinois created a tax credit scholarship program through the “Invest in Kids” Act that is mutually beneficial to students and donors. It provides a 75 percent Illinois State income tax credit to individuals who contribute money to fund scholarships for students to attend private schools. Eligible students from low-income families in Illinois may use these scholarships to attend a non-public school of their choice, including Sacred Heart School. For every dollar donated to this program through Empower Illinois between Dec. 1, 2019 and Feb. 29, 2020 and designated to a school operated by the Archdiocese of Chicago will be matched with two dollars from a matching pool....Click here for more information
