Letter from the Principal

Dear Families,

I wanted to thank everyone for another wonderful and successful Catholic Schools Week Party.  We had such an excellent turn out. I love seeing our parishioners who are grandparents now, coming and enjoying these parties that they once attended with their own children.

I am appreciative of those who worked the serving line or helped with the clean up.  Thanks to the LeVeque family, the Middle School Youth Group and Emma Neuman for providing the entertainment for the evening (face painting, balloon art, music, decorations, and photo booth.)

Next year I hope to move the date for this party to the last Saturday in January in order to not conflict with Frassati Fest. We have members of the high school youth group and staff who wish to attend that each year. So please look ahead and save that date.

Registration Process

I hope that you pulled the Navy Registration folder out of your child’s Wednesday folder. These are for you to read and refer to.

I sent an email out on Sunday evening and found that none of the links I provided work. I am so sorry.  If you are feeling frustrated, overwhelmed or anxious about the online registration process, please do not hesitate to contact me. Originally, I was going to invite everyone to schedule a personal time for me to walk them through the process, but then was told that most people would prefer to do it at home on their own.  So, know that I want to help you and make it easy for you.

Steps:

  1. Use the email from Mrs. Meinholz to get your log in information for teacherease.  Go to the teacherease site:  www.teacherease.com  .  Log in and click the “Miscellaneous” link along the top. Scroll down to “Online Registration” and select. On the online registration page there are three tasks to perform.
  2. First, “Complete the Form.”  This will take you to your child’s directory information. It will ask you to add some information, and review and correct the information already entered.  When you have gone through all four tabs of information, click Submit at the bottom left.  If you don’t submit the information will be lost.  You will have to do this for each of your children.
  3. Take the tuition contract and addendum out of the navy blue Registration folder and sign both pages. Have your spouse sign both pages. Return to the school office.
  4. Go to the parish link (ashtoncatholic.org) to pay online.  Returning families only pay the $200.00 Registration Fee.  Only families new to the school pay the $25.00 New Family Processing Fee.  You have the option to pay online or to send your check for $200.00 to Mrs. Meinholz in the office.

That’s it.  You are done.

God bless you and thank you for your support of our school.

Mrs. Klaas, Principal

    • NEW Interactive Safety Resource Available! Interact is an online, interactive e-course created for parents and guardians to complete with their children with the goal of sparking basic online safety discussions in the home. This 30 minute module provides parents with the opportunity to review their own tech use to set a good example; interactive activities to complete alongside their children; and follow-up resources and activities to keep the discussions going.

      This e-course gives parents the opportunity to set themselves up as the trusted adult in their child’s life. If the child sees something online they don’t understand or that makes them uncomfortable, they know they have someone to reach out to. The e-course even provides some ideas on how to start and continue these discussions, along with some bonus tips to help break the ice on awkward topics!
      Be your child’s trusted adult. Interact, and stay safe!

      Visit ProtectKidsOnlineWI.gov and click the Interact tab to access the e-course, along with numerous other resources for online safety.

    • Reminder: If you have fulfilled your recess duty of 4 days per student and still need volunteer hours for the 30 hours required, consider filling in for either the lunch recess duty or the preschool recess duty. Both have many blanks with no volunteers at this time. Follow the link on your email to look for opportunities to sign up. See above list of those assigned and you can see how many are listed as none.
