Dear Parents and Guardians,
As the school year comes to a close, I wish to thank everyone who has given our students the gift of time, treasure, and talent with a generous and loving heart. You have helped make a difference in the lives of our students. I would especially like to express gratitude to the Home School Association for the extraordinary work they do, and our parents/guardians and families for your support and for choosing St. Bartholomew School. For your willingness to serve our school community, I am profoundly grateful.
Congratulations to our Pre-K and Kindergarten students who performed beautifully in their end-of-year shows.
Please check our website for news about summer reading and IXL assignments and for supply letters for the upcoming school year. Information about the summer reading challenge has also been sent home. It is important for students to continue to read every day and to have conversations about books that they read. Please use IXL to maintain skills learned this year. Thank you for your help.
Monday through Thursday, school will dismiss at 11:30am and After Care is available. Friday, school dismisses at 10:30 am and there is no After Care. The School Office is open Monday through Thursday from 9:00am-2:00 pm during the summer.
Please join us at the 5:00 pm Mass on June 23, which will be celebrated by Bishop Checchio.
Finally, I would like to thank Fr. Thomas, Fr. Dario, our teachers, and staff for their support and love of the students of St. Bartholomew School. We are steeped in a fifty year history of academic excellence and continue to embrace our Catholic identity. This is a community held together by the power of “the grace of great things” (Rilke), as we continue to live our mission every day. I wish you an enjoyable and refreshing summer.
God bless you,
Mrs. Ann Wierzbicki, R.N., M.A.E./Ed.S.
