Every Cause Makes A Difference

May our Causes never become routine and may we never forget the individuals behind them. Every Cause in our year matters! We love to hear back from the various groups and people-from Sister Germaine with the Daughters of Charity (September), to the Garrick Family with the Ronald McDonald Room (October), to the Fisher House (November), we hear again and again what a difference your generosity makes! Keep up the good work and thank you.

Saint Olaf Catholic School Joins KSL's Quarters for Christmas

Thanks to our recent engagement with KSL when they featured our School and the work done by RETEGO Labs, KSL reached out to us with a service opportunity near and dear to their staff. From the KSL site, "Every winter, hundreds of Utah children struggle to find shoes, socks or clothing to keep warm, but this year the demand is even higher due to the COVID pandemic and families out of work. KSL will distribute 100% of your donation to make sure Utah kids are warm and comfortable during the cold months."

With such need, we share this with our community. Families may send quarters, or any change, or donation to the main office until Thursday, December 15, when we will present the donations to the program.

The third way to help is to join and participate in the event, Friday evening, December 2 @ 6 PM. Click heading for more details.

We've Come this far 7th & 8th Graders

Our 7th & 8th Grade Students have completed tours of all 3 Catholic Schools. We are the only grade school to have had the opportunity to see all three campuses, something we feel grateful for. Mr. McFall and myself strongly encourage students and their families to carefully and prayerfully consider this next step. With three very different experiences, students can now begin to discern where might be their best fit. Despite the uniqueness of each campus, mission, and philosophy, our Catholic High Schools are united in offering a high quality education with small class sizes, committed staff, and opportunities for service, character, and faith development. All three schools boast an average student ACT score of 26 (public schools are at or around an average score of 20). All three boast impressive lists of attended colleges nationwide with successful adult alum making a difference all over the world. Please, talk with your students and don't hesitate to visit the campuses for yourselves. You've come this far, help your student find their best path forward. Our thanks to our hosts at St. Joseph Catholic High School, Judge Memorial, and Juan Diego.

HERE WE GO AGAIN

Here we are again. I feel like a broken record, or rather a trinket spinning on a broken record, dazed, dizzy, and most definitely confused. Have you seen the latest educational headlines in the NY Times? With a headline of Math Scores Fell in Nearly Every State, and Reading Dipped on National Exam, the news just keeps getting better. A title like that should have the attention and deep concern of every parent in the nation. Reading on only confirms that parents should be paying attention, “The results, from what is known as the nation’s report card, offer the most definitive picture yet of the pandemic’s devastating impact on students.” What are we, as a nation, doing with our students’ education?

7th & 8th Grade Students Visit Saint Joseph Catholic High School

Our students had a great morning exploring the Saint Joseph's campus in Ogden. They sampled classes, engaged with their students, joined an assembly, and even got a "back stage" tour. Be sure to ask your 7th/8th graders about the Saint Joseph smaller school difference, Personalized Learning through Relationships & Connection! With 3 great high schools to choose from, we hope our students experience an intro to the personalities of each. Principal Clay Jones sends families this message. "We want to thank Mr. McFall and all of the 7th and 8th graders who came to the St. Joseph Campus today, it is very exciting getting to connect with your school community again! It is our goal to provide your community with an information night in the near future so that parents can, "grill the principal" with any questions they may have about our St. Joseph community! Thanks again for allowing us to host your students." -Principal Clay Jones
