Update for Parents


Message from the Principal

October 29, 2014

Dear Parents,

We have a new Kitchen Supervisor!  I would like to welcome Samantha Braun to SJS.  Ms. Sam has experience at the Marshall School District and the Sun Prairie School District working in their lunch programs.  Welcome!

Halloween is on Friday! Many classes will be having Halloween parties, and the whole school costume parade will take place at 2:30pm, please join us if you can!  Please make sure that students are able to put on their costumes by themselves. Costumes need to be appropriate – no weapons, blood, etc.

The BLAST is this Friday, October 31. This is a Halloween themed, after school carnival event, all the proceeds go to an orphanage in Costa Rica that we sponsor through the Orphan Train. We are still in need of decorated cakes for the cake walk, please let the office know if you can help out!

First quarter ends next Friday! Parent-Teacher Conferences are on Tuesday, November 4 and Thursday, November 6. Please sign-up: http://www.signupgenius.com/go/10c0f4cabaf2ea0fc1-fall  Please come early to your assigned conference time as you will need to pick up your child’s report card first.

If you would like to advertise your business in the 2015 Raffle Calendar it is $45. Please let me know if you are interested.

The H&S Chili Supper is on Saturday, November 8 from 4:30-6:30pm.  We are in need of volunteers to work and food donations.  Please sign up to help! www.signupgenius.com/go/10C0D45A8AA2BAAF49-stjerome

QR Codes are Coming! - When you come to visit St. Jerome School during Parent/Teacher Conferences, you will find QR Codes all over the school. A QR (Quick Response) Code is a special barcode that is read by QR readers and camera phones. To access the information behind a QR code, download a QR reader app onto your smartphone or tablet, and then scan the barcode to capture additional data, in our case – our students voices. To be able to hear the students, please download a QR Code Reader to your device. The website Mobile-Barcodes.com has compiled a list of popular QR code readers and has instructions about how to download a reader (smartphone or tablet). Please email Jennifer Casper @ jennifer.casper@stjeromecolumbus.org if you have any questions.
