Welcome to a new school year! On behalf of all the faculty and staff of St. Dominic School, I welcome you to the 2017-2018 school year. We are glad you are here! The faculty and I look forward to working with you and to a successful school year with you and your child/children.
As educators, we are committed to engaging each child in his/her learning, and developing each child's potential and talents. We are partners in your child's education and together we share the same goal.
In order for your child/children (our children) to be successful they need support from home, school, parents, and teachers. Long before a student arrives at St. Dominic School, their day has already started.It starts with preparing for the next day the night before and for some, it can be overwhelming. Learning is a process--- preparing to learn is a skill.
Our lives are busy. Sometimes, we need to take a step back to see what is in front of us. We have to prioritize the importance of learning and the responsibilities that come with learning. There is a lot to do to prepare for a school day, and there is a lot to do at the end of a school day. Some thoughts/suggestions for parents and students for a good start are:
-Pack the school bag the night before
-Talk with your child about the school day
-Discuss how your child gets to school
-Discuss how your child gets home
-Get a good night's sleep
-Arrive on time
-Tell your child what is expected from him/her
-Celebrate successes, learn from challenges
-Communicate with teachers and administration
Each student will receive a copy of the up-dated 2017-2018 Student/Family Handbook. Knowing what is expected academically and behaviorally is a great place to start. please take the time to review it with your child/children, and return the acceptance form. If you, or your child, have questions about the student expectations of the handbook, I ask that you contact me to discuss.
Please know that the faculty and/or administration is available to meet with parent(s)/guardian(s) as needed or when requested. If at any time you have questions or concerns regarding your child/children, please contact the child's teacher or the Main Office. Your question or concern will be given to the teacher or to me. Please know that I am available to meet with students/parents when needed or requested.
The faculty, staff, and administration thank you for your dedication to Catholic education and to St. Dominic School. We look forward to a wonderful year...together.
