Good Morning, Saint Charles Families,

We are off to a fantastic start at school this year! Classrooms are buzzing with energy, students are focused on learning, and smiles are abundant as I walk through the halls. There are lots of exciting things happening at SCBA, and we want you to know all about them!

Important Announcements for this week:

1) Mass on Wednesday will be sponsored by Student Council.
We would love to have you join us for this special time of worship. Please remember to have your children wear their Mass uniforms on this day. If your child has PE on Wednesday, they are required to wear their Mass uniform to school. They will be provided with time to change before PE. Their teacher will provide them with time and guidance in this process.

2) Back to School Night is on Thursday. This evening is for parents only.
Grades 1-5 will meet in the Hall from 5:30 – 5:50 for a brief overview of the evening and important information for the school year. There will be two sessions for Grades 1-5 in order to accommodate families who have more than one child in these grade levels. The first session will take place from 5:50 to 6:10 and the second session will take place from 6:10 to 6:30.
Grades 6-8 will meet in the Hall from 6:30 to 7:30. Parents will meet in the Hall for the entire session. Teachers will present to the group as a whole.

3) Friday is a Minimum Day, with pickup at 12:15.
