Bring Headphones for the ComputersPlease allow your 5th Grade students to bring a set of headphones to use at school while they are on our classroom computers.  Headphones are needed during Success Maker instruction and for other technology programs.  Our software is individualized, animated and the sound carries around the room.

Start a Habit:  Encourage your student to treat studying as a daily assignment.  For example study and review Math facts 15 minutes each night.  Spend a few minutes reviewing notes and handouts.  Read 30 minutes every night.  Good habits make good students.

Notice:  When you see disrespectful behavior on TV (a child rolling his eyes or talking back to a parent) tell your youngster that isn’t okay in real life. Then ask them to be on the lookout for respectful actions by TV characters.

Demonstrate:  Your child will learn respectful behavior by watching the way you treat others.

Be There:  Regular and on time attendance in elementary school sets up a good pattern for your child’s entire school career.  Show them that school comes first by scheduling routine doctor and dentist appointments for after school or over school breaks.

Prayer for Our New School

Almighty God, because we love our students because our hearts yearn for our new school, we cannot remain silent. We will not stop praying until their righteousness shines like the dawn, and oursalvation blazes like a burning torch. May we be called the Holy People and the People Redeemed by the Lord.  May Holy Savior Catholic Academy be known as the Desirable Place.  We cannot do this on our own Father, so I ask for Your help in the name of the Son of God, Jesus Christ.  Amen.
