Girls on the Run

This Friday, March 2nd is the last day registrations will be open for Girls on the Run. We are looking for more girls for our Heart and Sole program, 6th – 8th grades. The program will run from March 12th until June 2nd. Practices will be held at St. Vincent on Mondays from 3:30-5:15. Please visit girlsontherunutah.org for more information and to register. Please contact Alli Gardner for any questions allimgardner@gmail.com.

Missoula Children’s Theatre – Tryouts March 19th

Announcing this year’s Missoula Children’s Theatre production: “The Wiz of the West.” Missoula Children’s Theatre is a free, one-week after-school program introducing students to the performing arts. This year they will be at the school March 19th – 24th.

Tryouts will be Monday, March 19th in the gym after school for grades Kindergarten through 8th. (There are tryouts because Missoula limits the number of participants based on which play they are performing.) No acting experience is needed to tryout. Rehearsals are every day that week from 3:30 p.m. – 5:30 p.m. and 6:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m. (The 6:00-8:00 rehearsal time is for those who are chosen for one of the main roles.) If selected, students must attend all rehearsals required for their role. The play will be performed in the school gym on Saturday, March 24th at 12:30 and 3 p.m. A nominal fee will be charged to attend the play.

Book Fair

The Book Fair continues online until March 2nd. For more details, go to Scholastic Book Fair. Meanwhile, a HUGE thank you to all who came to the library for the book fair last week, either to help or support our school library. So far, the sales are a little higher than previous years. The total profit will be announced after the online book fair closes on March 2nd.

No School

The school will be closed for Professional Educators Day Friday, March 9, 2018. However, Extended Daycare will be open. (Please bring a sack lunch.)

Report Cards

3rd quarter report cards will be emailed on March 13. From now on, we will go paperless with the report cards. If you would like a hard copy of your child’s report card, please contact the school office.

MARK YOUR CALENDARS: We will have a float in the St. Patrick’s Day Parade on Saturday, March 17th. Please plan to attend. Students get to dress in green and march or ride in the float. More details will follow.

Discipline Procedure

Please see the link below for answers to frequently asked questions about discipline at St. Vincent School.

Parents/guardians are asked to notify the teacher or administration immediately if they suspect a student is being bullied or harassed, or is bullying or harassing others. Parents/guardians can do this via email, phone, or by using this Problem Solving Form:

Bullying Harassment Form

St. Vincent School practices the discipline model of Restorative Justice. (For more information on Restorative Justice see this article and examples here.) Restorative Justice does not omit consequences for an offender, but makes the consequences natural to the situation and ensures that the student processes the full impact of their actions. Punishment is not the focus because simply punishing students is not as effective for long-term behavior change. Restorative Justice is more difficult to implement, but is ultimately more effective at changing behavior. It also focuses on repairing relationships that have been damaged because of an incident.
