Daily Announcements

Upcoming Grade Level Parent Meetings

We strongly encourage all parents to attend their grade level Parent Meeting(s). These meetings provide valuable information on grade level expectations, curriculum, daily schedule, procedure changes, and so much more. The teacher’s give a lot of their own time preparing for and leading these meetings. Your committed role in this educational partnership for your child(ren) is expected and appreciated.

This is the calendar of Parent Meetings (location in parenthesis):
Grade 7 and 8 – Tuesday, August 20 (south cafeteria/parish center)
Grade 5 and 6 – Thursday, August 22 (classrooms/south cafeteria)
Grade 3 and 4 – Tuesday, August 27 (south cafeteria/classrooms)
Grade K and 1 – Thursday, August 29 (classrooms/parish center)

All meetings will begin at 7:00 pm. If you have any questions about the meetings, please call the school office at 402-551-6667.

Grade 2 does not have a Parent Meeting. There will be a First Reconciliation Parent Meeting later this fall. Details will be shared at a later date.

Lunch price increase and student special diet requirements

For lunch this year, we are continuing our partnership with Westside/District 66 Nutrition Services.  One thing to mention about our relationship with Westside/District 66 Nutrition Services for our lunches is that our students needing special diet requirements due to allergies will have their lunches personalized to their needs.

To utilize the special diet options, parents must have paperwork on file with Westside/District 66 Nutrition Services. The first and most important required form is the “Request for Meal Accommodation” form. The “Request for Meal Accommodation” form needs to be filled out by the parent/guardian and then emailed to Jennifer Allen, the Westside/District 66 Nutrition Services Nutrition Specialist, at allen.jennifer@westside66.net. With this form, Jennifer Allen will then determine if any additional information is needed, and if so contact parents and the school. Westside/District 66 Nutrition Services may require that the family complete a “Medical Statement” form to provide medical documentation.  Nutrition Services menu page at westside.getlunchtray.com, in the drop down menu in the top corner, you can find the Request for Meal Accommodation form under the “Downloads” tab.

The cafeteria staff has begun processing lunch checks to fund your child(ren)’s lunch account. Please continue to send in lunch checks. The student lunch price is $3.50 per lunch (includes one milk). You will receive email notifications in the future at anytime your child’s lunch balance falls below $5.00. The lunch menu can be found on the website by clicking here. Please note your child will order lunch with his/her homeroom teacher first thing each school day, beginning Monday, August 19. Children will be asked to indicate whether or not they will be taking hot lunch.  If a child arrives to school late, the only lunch choice available will be the yogurt and cheese option unless prior arrangements were made (e.g. calling the school the day before an appointment to pre-order lunch).

Thank you so much and if you have any questions, please let us know.
