The Changing of the Guard - New Opening!
A reminder that last week, we announced the loss of a number of team members moving on as well as new open positions. Mrs. Baker, who has done great service to the school over many years, has communicated to her colleagues and students that there is a new adventure over the horizon. Warrior on, Mrs. Baker! Under the "Contact SJA" menu, you can see our open positions and forward to anyone interested.

New Junior High Electives
Mr. Jakubisin met with 5th graders yesterday and 6th and 7th graders today to talk about the electives available to them next year. In the Blackbaud portal, by Friday afternoon, there should be a pop-up/header inviting you to indicate your top three elective choices. There will be ten electives offered during this first year and students will be able to take one of their top three choices. If all goes well, we will expand the course offerings next spring.
Re-enrollment & Tuition
You should have received an invitation to re-enroll from Mrs. Schmakel this week. Please note that although the cost to educate continues to rise, Monsignor Borger, the Finance Council, and the school administration have worked together to increase the availability of basic financial aid. With these efforts, we have limited the effective increase to families to the smallest increase in at least 8 years. For at least the prior 8 years, tuition has increased by $100 or more, even up to $200 in a single year. Although this is sometimes unavoidable, we wanted to make sure you knew that we see the investment you are making in your childrens' futures and do what we could to help. With this, returning families receiving basic financial aid will only see a $90 increase to tuition with the K-8 (and in ratio for Preschool).
If you didn't fill out the Intent to Return form some time ago, it might take a few steps for your basic financial aid award to show within the system, but it doesn't mean you're excluded from it.
This year's lunch ordering window closes on Tuesday the 18th. Lunches will not be able to be ordered after this time.
St. Joan of Arc, pray for us!
Gabriel A. Jakubisin
