St. Clare starts used uniform collection

St. Clare

If you are going through closets and have extra ‘gently used’ uniforms that no longer fit or are no longer needed, there is a container in the lower hallway outside the St. Clare office for you to deposit them for the Used Uniform Sale for the upcoming year. The containers will be available until May 27. The sale will be held at Packet Pick Up on Aug. 2. Please make sure they are washed and in "good" condition.

Mentor families are needed. The New Family Welcoming Committee is looking for families that would be willing to serve as mentors during the 2016-2017 school year. This is not a huge time commitment and you are provided with all the information you need to help the new families. St. Clare tries to match families by the grades their children are in so we are especially in need of families with incoming kindergarteners or those just finishing kindergarten, but St. Clare also needs mentors for all grade levels. If you are interested in helping, please contact Heather Ertel at heatherertel76@yahoo.com.

Do you have Campbell's Labels cluttering your kitchen drawer at home? Be sure to get them to school. The school earns double points in May.

District 90

Registration for returning families and kindergarten students in O’Fallon School District 90 schools will be held from 3-6:30 p.m. on July 26.
