parents of junior and senior girls: As your daughter begins to shop for
prom dresses, please keep in mind that prom dresses must be appropriate
for a Catholic high school event. Although these dresses do not have
to follow the exact guidelines for daily wear at school, they must still
adhere to the following guidelines. Strapless dresses are acceptable
for this formal dance, bu dresses may not be too low cut or too short.
Bare midriff or bare backs are not acceptable. If you are unsure about
whether or not a dress is acceptable, then either do not purchase it,
or take a picture with the dress on and email it to Mrs. Fasching for
prior approval. A student wearing a dress that is not appropriate will
be asked to go home and change. We would like to avoid this if
possible, so please keep this information in mind before purchasing a
dress. Thank you in advance! - Mrs. Fasching
Bridget Hamak and Mary Quick are meeting with students this week about
course selection for next year. Students will register for classes in
school next week, but they must have a parent signature on the course form before they can register. Remind your student to bring the form home for your signature.
You will be able to complete your registration documents online this year starting next Monday, Feb. 9. If you would prefer to come in to school to do that, we will have the usual registration evenings on Feb. 9 and Feb. 12.

us out - our laptops should not be inside backpacks with heavy books.
We are seeing some serious damage from the weight and compression of
those books. Laptops should be carried and stored in the assigned
cases, not within backpacks. We encourage parents to have a
conversation about what students are carrying around in those heavy
backpacks. Maybe it's books that could be left at home or in the
Senior Parents: It's hard to believe your children are beginning the
last semester of their Senior year. There is a meeting on Monday, Feb. 9 at 7:00 pm
in the Cafeteria for the benefit of senior parents. Important
information related to the Baccalaureate Mass, Senior Getaway, Senior
Breakfast, Awards Assembly, Graduation Ceremony, and the All Night Grad
Party will be shared at this meeting. Many of the activities are
organized by volunteers, so knowing the deadlines and getting forms,
photos, and other items back in a timely manner is appreciated. It is highly recommended that at least one parent attend this meeting.
had a great speaker last week and I will share some nuggets from her
talk via this eblast for the next few weeks. One of the things that she
talked about was a "tech curfew" in our homes. Curfew time depends on
the age of the teen, with young adults taking more ownership as their
awareness of the need for time away from technology increases. Any time
from 8:30 to 11:00 pm
would be appropriate depending on age. Erin Walsh reminded us all that
alarm clocks are cheap, so the rationale that students use their phones
as an alarm clock is not necessary. It is important that young adults
learn to function without technology, especially at night when sleep is
so critical. Teens need 8-10 hours of sleep each night.
