MR. VANCE'S NEWS TO USE THIS WEEK
APRIL 29, 2021
Dear Parents and Guardians,
Just a few reminders to begin this edition of the
Last week, parents should have received Iowa Test scores for students in grades 3-7. If you did not see them, please check your child's book bag. If they are not in the book bag, please let your child’s homeroom teacher know and we will send home another copy. We are still awaiting the results for students in second grade. In addition, the 4
quarter progress reports were emailed home for students in grades 2-8. Please let the school office know if you did not receive them.
Congratulations to our second graders in Mrs. Rischmann and Miss Schoenfeld's rooms who celebrated their First Communion last weekend. Please continue to pray for the remaining second-grade students who will receive their First Communion on Saturday and Sunday. We are very proud of them and happy for their families
These are unprecedented times, but we are resilient.
These are challenging times, but we are hopeful.
These are stressful times, but we place our trust in Christ to carry us through.
Please continue to keep all St. Ignatius students, staff, and families
n your thoughts and prayers.
In Christ's Peace,
