Auction Opportunity Drawing Kick-Off Assembly

Thursday, December 13th, your student(s) will receive their auction opportunity drawing tickets at the Sci-Fi-N-Superhero Soiree Opportunity Drawing Kick-Off Assembly. Please speak with family and friends over the holidays about supporting this effort. The money raised benefits our school and helps to enhance our school programs, so we hope you will participate in this fundraiser opportunity!

Auction Follow-Up Call Volunteers

We are in the process of doing donation follow-up calls to companies this week and next. If you are able to help, please let Therese Clay (tclay@stvincents-school.org) know your availability. This is a great way to earn school volunteer hours from home!

Parents Night Out

St. Vincent Extended Day is offering our first Parents Night Out on December 15th from 5:00 – 10:00 PM. The cost is $40 per child ages 4 and up. (The money is going to help outfit our new “Tween Area.”) Dinner is included. Cash or check is due before December 15th. Space is limited. You will need to sign up by December 13th. Please contact Danielle Gibson at dgibson@stvincents-school.org to register.

Spirit Dress

Spirit Dress Day will be Tuesday, December 18th. The “theme” for spirit day is Christmas clothing or ugly Christmas sweater! If you do not wish to wear Christmas attire or an ugly Christmas sweater, you may wear St. Vincent spirit wear.

Christmas Program, Seating, Dress, and Help

The annual Christmas Program is on Thursday, December 20th at 6:30 PM in the church. We ask that children be to their classrooms at 6:00 PM.

Please note that you may not place an item in a pew to save seats before the church is opened at 6:00. So that seating is as fair as possible, any items left in the pews prior to 6:00 will be moved to the back of the church.

Students must dress in Sunday best or school Mass uniform clothing. Please, no jeans or sweatpants. Also, please do not bring food or drinks into the church.

If your child will not be here for the performance, please inform their teacher. Also, please do not leave any valuables in your vehicle.

Help will be needed immediately following the program to break down the sets, risers, etc. Please consider staying a few minutes to assist. Thank You.

Volunteers Needed

Mr. Larrabee needs a little help with some of the setup for the Christmas program. He will need helpers to set up risers and bells on:

  • Monday December 17th at 9:30 AM and again at 2:45 PM
  • Tuesday December 18th at 9:30 AM and again at 3:00 PM
  • Wednesday December 19th at 8:15 AM, 9:30 AM and 1:00 PM
  • Thursday December 20th between 9:30 AM. and 1:00 PM

If you can help him move items during any of those times, please leave a message at 801-527-2056 or email him at slarrabee@stvincents-school.org.

Testing of Parent Alert System

On Thursday, December 13th at 10:00 AM we will conduct a test of our Parent Alert System. This system will be utilized for any school closures or emergency messaging. If you receive the alert you do not need to respond to the school office. If you do not receive the alert, please contact the school office so that they may check your information.

Homework Lab

Please note that there will be no homework lab next week, December 17th – 20th.

Air Quality

The school closely monitors the air quality each day using 3 sources. If the air quality is rated green or yellow, we will have recess outdoors, but if the air quality is orange or worse, we will stay indoors. Please let us know if you would like your child to stay indoors when the air quality is yellow.
