St. Anthony Newsletter


News: Thursday, November 14, 2019

Dear St. Anthony and OLG Families,

Winter has arrived. Please make sure that your children are dressed appropriately and label everything. We have many items in our Lost and Found boxes. Following guidelines from the government website, Weather Guidelines for Children, recess is held outdoors when the temperature is above 10 degrees Fahrenheit, with wind chill considered.

T-Shirt Tuesday is now every Tuesday, as a result of students’ request for making this the best school year ever. Students may wear any Holy Family t-shirt and must wear uniform pants. Today is the last day to order from the Holiday Store for pre-Christmas delivery.

Holiday Store open until 11:55 pm tonight - Back by popular demand, we will be re-opening our school spirit T-shirt store. Orders will be back in time for our first December T-shirt Tuesday and in time for the holidays. Sweatshirts and stocking caps make the perfect holiday gift for family and teachers! There is also an option to add a gift message when ordering if you’d like us to send it home with someone other than your child. The store will be open until Nov 14. https://shop.envisiontees.com/sta_olg

Picture retake day will be November 19th.  If your student was absent or you wish a picture retake, student may be out of uniform. Picture packet must be returned with student for retakes.

The Ginter Thanksgiving Dinner is a long-standing tradition in the Dubuque community and one that our campus has supported over the years. For those not familiar with this event, the Ginter family has put on a free Thanksgiving dinner for the Dubuque community for over 50 years. Every year the number served grows. Last year 2200 people were served either at the Knights of Columbus Hall or by home deliveries. Last year our students/families donated over $1300. The Ginter family cannot accept food products due to Health Department regulations so we plan to have a “Coin Collection” from November 8 - 22. It is suggested that students complete a service project at home to earn their donation. The Ginters have always appreciated our donations and hope that our families will continue to support this worthy cause.

We are trying out a different way of receiving yearbook pictures from parents. Please submit pictures to the following email address submit+944705@edophotos.com

Volunteers – If you filled out paperwork to volunteer at our school, please watch for an email with information regarding orientation meetings and next steps. Thank you!

Dismissal – Please make sure that your child’s teacher sees you when you pick up at the end of the day. In a couple of cases, we have had some worried teachers. When the temperature is below 10 degrees Fahrenheit, with windchill considered, we dismiss from the school gym.

Visitors to Buildings – Please help us tighten up our practices when it comes to visitors entering our buildings. We all want to keep our children safe, so we need to ensure that any visitors to the buildings go immediately to the office to sign in. If you are bringing a student a forgotten item, etc., please report to the office first, sign in, and wear a visitor badge. Do not go directly to a classroom. This applies to the playground, too. Students who come late will be asked to have a pass from the office so they need to go there first, as well. I know it may seem a bit formal, but if we continue to allow some people to come and go, what is to stop strangers from wandering in. Having said that, you are welcome to visit your child’s/children’s classroom and/or eat lunch whenever you would like. Thank you!
