The Weekly Rundown
MISSION STATEMENT: St. Charles Parish School in Hartland, Wisconsin nourishes and grows a vibrant Catholic community committed to innovation, responsiveness and compassion as it prepares and challenges students in their intellectual, spiritual and moral lives.
Parents and Students,
It=E2=80=99s in the books! The 2018-2019 school year has come to an end.
We ended the school year with a wonderful All School Mass last Thursday and students spent some time with the next grade level teachers. Students enjoyed various activities and getting to know some new teachers. Congratulations to all of our students and families on a successful school year!
Summer Hours: The School Office Summer Hours are Monday through Thursday from 9 am to 2 pm. Please know that we are always a phone call or email away if you need anything.
7th Grade parents: A big thank you to all of the 7th Grade parents that put together a wonderful celebration for our 8th Grade graduates and their families. The detail, decorations, and food were above and beyond! Thank you for carrying on this wonderful tradition and making this evening so special for our students!
TADS Accounts: Please check your TADS account over the next couple of weeks to complete any tuition, lunch, and/or SCRIP charges. All hot lunch charges for the month of May/June (if applicable) have been added to your TADS account. SCRIP payments will be added in the next week. All payments should be made prior to June 30, 2019. We greatly appreciate your attention to this matter as we close out the fiscal year.
Parade: We are gearing up for the Hartland Hometown Parade and need some help. We have been most fortunate for the years of service from all of our families who have taken the lead and organized this wonderful event. This year, we are blessed to have the use of a fire truck from the Woelfle Family to lead us through the streets of Hartland! We are looking for students and families to come out and walk with us to show our school pride! Please join us on Sunday, June 30th starting at 12:45 pm. We will lineup on Hartbrook Drive in front of the Sendik's shopping center. The parade starts at 1:30 pm and travels down Merton Avenue to Capitol and eventually ends up at Nixon Park. It's a fun walk and the crowd is always receptive to see the St. Charles contingent.
If you are interested in walking, please sign up HERE. Wear your St. Charles spirit wear or past parade t-shirts! Also, bring some candy (non-chocolate) to throw to children and adults as we walk. And don't forget your water bottle. I am looking forward to this annual event!
Finally, the students heard this prayer on the last day of school and it's also a good reminder of how to approach summer vacation.
Vacations are wonderful! We vacate our regular lives and fill them with new things, experiences, and memories. Thank you for vacations, Lord, but help us remember that we must never vacate our lives of You. No matter where we go and what we do, may we always keep You as our tour guide. With You in charge, we=E2=80=99ll never get lost. Fill us with Your joy as we start our summer vacation.
Following His plan,
St. Charles Parish School
