Principal’s Corner

A Note from Principal Bogle:

August, 2018

Dear St. Charles Families,

“Saint Charles Borromeo School, a Catholic faith-filled community, sees Christ in all.  We build a strong foundation of Faith, foster an unending appetite for Knowledge, instill Honorthrough Christ-like actions, and provide opportunities to achieve Balanceas well-rounded individuals.”

                  On behalf of the school faculty and staff, I would like to welcome you to the 2018-2019 school year. We hope that your summer has been blessed with adventures and joy and that your children are refreshed to begin a new school year. May we inspire our students to be excited in their faith and the knowledge that this new year will bring.

                  St. Charles has a long standing tradition of providing academic excellence in a faith-filled tradition. A strong working relationship with parents and parishioners is essential to the success of our Catholic schools.  I look forward to seeing all of you as we work together this school year.

                  Please take time to read the important information in this summer packet. Included you will find an updated school handbook, annual medical update form for each child, and parent permission form.  Our traffic pattern letter is also included.  It is important that all parents follow the guidelines in this traffic letter.  This ensures a quick and smooth drop off and pick up process.

                  We will have a new parent for parents of children in grades 1-8 on Thursday, August 16 at 5:45 in the classroom adjacent to the school lobby. A parent meeting for students in grades preschool to kindergarten will take place in the PAC at 6:30 and parents will be provided an opportunity to meet with their child’s teacher.

                  Please mark your calendar to attend the Family Open House on Sunday, August 19th.  The event is from 12:00-2:00 p.m. You can visit the classrooms and meet the teachers, purchase spirit wear, add money to your cafeteria account, and learn about scouting, athletics, and other school and parish programs.  We will also have our annual food truck rally in the back parking lot.  

                  This year we welcome one new staff member to the school.  Mrs. Sarah Shearrow will be teaching third grade. She has fours years experience in teaching primary grade children in a Catholic school in Indiana.  We welcome her to our St. Charles family.

                  The energy and excitement as we welcome the arrival of the first day of school builds with every passing day. I look forward to sharing with the faculty, students and families all the joy that the new school year brings.
