School wide updates as of October 12, 2021
- Halloween: No Costumes, However students are allowed to wear free dress on Friday 10/29 as long as one article of clothing is black or orange.
- We will be having mass on All Saints Day November 1. 4th Grade & 5th grade will be in church for this mass. Father Gil is allowing students to dress up as a saint if they wish for this day.
We have reached the midpoint of our first trimester, and parents are strongly encouraged to login to Schoology to view your children’s academic, effort and behavior progress. The grades that are posted will give you a snapshot of how your children are progressing in each of the subject areas. At St. Paul the Apostle School, we also see the importance of student effort and positive behavior in the classroom, and how this affects their academic progress and social-emotional learning. Please note any information that has been posted regarding these components as well.To clarify, Schoology is our new Learning Management System where students and parents have access to courses, assignments, and grades. Gradelink and Powerschool Learning are no longer being used. A Parent Access sheet on how to create a parent account and link your child has already been distributed to each student. You must have a Schoology Parent account to access your student’s courses and grades. If you are not yet familiar with Schoology, an information document has been created for you to help you navigate through Schoology and generate a student grade report. Please click on the link below to access it. If you have not received the parent access sheet or have any questions, please contact Enrique Lopez, our Director of Educational Technology at firstname.lastname@example.org.
4th Grade Updates

- Schoology course pages will begin to have materials posted for easier accessibility to classwork & homework when students are ill or have to be out of the classroom.
