I hope your summer is off to a great start. I have a few updates to share with you.
I am very excited to welcome our new Gr. 1-4 Music teacher, Mr. David McVay. Mr. McVay has been substitute teaching, including long term subbing in local public school districts, since his May 2018 graduation from Luther College in Decorah, Iowa. He is active in the Quad City Music Guild and is looking forward to working with our students on our 5-8th grade musical!
I am sad to share the news that our art teacher, Mrs. Johnston, has taken a position in a local public school system. I appreciate her wonderful work with our students here at St. Paul's during her time with us, and wish her well. Please keep St. Paul's in your prayers as we seek to hire a new faith-filled art teacher.
Parent Participation Program
Statements were sent out to those who still have an outstanding balance with volunteer hours, Panther Perks, and/or buy out. Please pay your outstanding balances as soon as possible so we can close the books on the 2018-19 school year. If you feel there is an error in your statement, please don't hesitate to reach out to me. As this is a relatively new program, with a lot of data to track, and occasionally mistakes are made. Usually it is my error in misreading or missing a number on my volunteer hours spreadsheet. There were over 440+ entries! It is exciting to have this many people volunteering!
Please note the form to record volunteer hours for the 2018-19 school year is no longer active. There is now a new form on the school website to begin recording hours for the 2019-2020 school year.
Thank you for the support you give the school through the Home and School Parent Participation Program by purchasing Panther Perks, volunteering or opting for the buy out.
The link for the new volunteer recording form is:
