Weekly Memo for November 19, 2014: 

Happy Thanksgiving!

It was retreat week for all of our students. Thank you so much to Trinity High School for sharing Lisa Zolkos and Laura Foley! These religion teachers did a great job, and we are very grateful!

Friday, members of our Student Council will be going to New Horizons to help pass out meals for some of Manchester's elderly. This time (3rd Friday of each month, 2:45 PM-4:00 PM) now belongs to STJ. We will be going every month, all year. All are welcome to volunteer, but students must have a permission slip. The volunteers will go with the teachers to the soup kitchen and must be picked up by a parent at the kitchen at 4:00 pm.

All homerooms have been given a food item for the Thanksgiving Baskets. These are all due Friday, November 21st.

We will be going to the Dana Center Friday to see a play, "Walking the Tightrope." All permission slips must be in by tomorrow.

Re-evaluations will be handed out Wednesday, December 3rd. If your student received an F, 4 or 5 on his/her report card, he/she must be re-evaluated in that class. After the teachers have completed the form, it must be signed by a parent and returned by Friday, December 5th.

Reminder: Fundraiser delivery: Thursday, December 4th. Items may be picked up from 1:00 pm to 2:30 pm.

Student Council Christmas Dance, Friday, December 5th, from 7:00-10:00 pm. We will be collecting hats and mittens for any age, any gender.

Athletic News:

The boys JV team received pratice schedules yesterday.

Games: Thursday, November 20th--JV at home; Monday, November 24th--Varsity at home, JV travel to Timberlane; Monday, December 1st--Varsity at home.

Have a blessed and safe Thanksgiving holiday.

A Message from the School Nurse

As we move along in this season of colds and flu, I would like to remind parents/guardians to review the St. Joseph parent handbook. It provides a guideline related to when children should return to school after an illness. Many times children return to school and are sent home again. By keeping the children home, it will help them recover and be able to participate once back in school.

I have been notified of an allergy alert involving Ortega Taco products. They are recalling many products due to an undeclared allergy statement. Certain spice ingredients purchased by a third party supplier contain peanuts and almonds. Information about which products it is recalling is available on the FDA website under 2014 recalls. Click on the Ortega product, and it will bring you to all the items in the recall. If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Lastly, a gentle reminder for all athletes with physicals expiring in November: please be sure to make a copy for the school. It prevents rushing around to find forms prior to spring sports.

Thank you. (from Mrs. Provencher, LPN)
