Back to School Night – Sept. 11th

Back to School Night begins at 6:30pm in the Church with a presentation by Principal Pinkofsky followed by teacher presentations in the classrooms and a reception in the school courtyard with refreshments. This is a parent-only event.

Virtus Training, Fingerprinting, and TB test

Virtus training, fingerprints, and TB test results are required for any school volunteers including but not limited to field trip chaperones, lunch/playground volunteers, and classroom volunteers. Make sure to complete these early so you don’t miss out on school activities!

Sept 21 – Virtus re-certification 10:00am to 11:30am at SPA. This is for parents who have already completed the initial training 4 yrs ago and are due for renewal.

TB Testing – please return results to Nurse Van Anderson (vanderson@sp-apostle.org).
