PROCESS: Tables will be set up with signs indicating where to drop off individual items. Please park your car and proceed to the appropriate tables(s).
All social distancing rules apply. Every person must be wearing a mask. If you see multiple people at a table please wait in your car so that a long line doesn’t form.

We ask for everyone’s patience during this process. Please remember that this is NOT a time to socialize. As tempting as it will be to stay and socialize with friends we must adhere to social distancing rules mandated by the Governor and limit the number of people gathering in the parking lot at one time.

To make this process run smoothly please adhere to the following guidelines:
iPads: must be placed in a sealed Ziploc bag with the student’s name and homeroom written on the outside. Charging cord and plug MUST also be included in this bag. Any students missing a charging cord/plug will be charged $50.

Basketball Uniforms: Must be washed and placed in a Ziploc bag with the student’s name and homeroom written on the outside

Hard Cover Textbooks & Library books: If possible please place a post-it note on the cover of the book or a slip of paper inside with the student’s name & homeroom. Soft cover workbooks DO NOT need to be returned.

Band Instruments: SEE BELOW
 
8th Grade Students:  Please note that transcripts can only be released to your High School once all items above have been returned to St Bernadette School.  

Also, if you were unable to pick up your student's belongings during the Student Item pick-up days last month you may do so at these times.
IMPORTANT INFORMATION for BAND STUDENTS

Dear Parents,
Next week during the return days on June 11th and June 12 I will be there to collect any rental instruments that need to be returned.  Ukulele students own their Ukulele so they need not be returned.  You only need to return an instrument if one of the following situations apply to you:

1. Your student is in 8th grade and is graduating
2. Your have opted not to continue taking lessons next year and know you will not need your instrument.
3. Your student is transferring to a new school next year that does not have a Paul Effman Music program.
4. You have withdrawn your student earlier in the year but could not return the instrument due to the school closure.

If you know you are continuing next year, you may keep your instrument.  If you have any questions please let me know.

YEARBOOK PHOTO REQUEST

PHOTOS MUST BE SUBMITTED BY THIS MONDAY - JUNE 7th.

Dear Families—
 
We can’t believe the school year is almost over, and what a school year it has been!
 
We are going to try to make this year’s yearbook as special as possible.  We are asking for any photos you may have of your children in school or school events (team events, after school activities, Lil’Angels, talent show, school play, classroom celebration, etc).
 
We are also looking for photos of students sharing their schoolwork from home!  Photos of parents working with their children, photos from online classes, photos of children working on their own, everything!  This can be from any subject and all grade levels. 
 
The support of parents during this time has been so critical to the success of the school year.  One day we will all look back at this and be reminded of the shared experience the yearbook can offer.
 

PHOTOS MUST BE SUBMITTED BY THIS MONDAY - JUNE 7th.

All photos can be emailed to:  ap@stb-school.org
Please put YEARBOOK PHOTOS in the subject line

 
Please do not crop any photos as that may make the photo unusable in the yearbook.  We can crop/edit pictures in the yearbook software.
 
Also, please identify the classroom/activity/grade the pictures are from. 
 
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact Patty Dems at ptdems@gmail.com or 713.412.8606.
 
Thank you,
 
Mrs. Julianne Morrin
