Weekly School Newsletter – November 23, 2011


Please join us for our Dine Out Night at Buffalo Wild Wings on Wednesday, November 30th from 5:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.   Dine in or carry out!  Our school receives 15% of all pre-taxed food sales (alcohol not included) from any guest presenting the fundraising ticket.  The fundraising tickets will be sent home on Monday, next week.  There are two per page.  Please feel free to invite a neighbor or friend to join you.  This fundraiser is an easy way to earn money for our school.  Please mark your calendar and plan on eating out!  Surely most of us will be sick of turkey by then!

QND PLACEMENT TEST – Saturday, December 3rd – ATTENTION: 8th grade students & parents!

Quincy Notre Dame will administer a placement test on Saturday, December 3, 2011, for all eighth grade students planning to attend QND in the 2012-2013 school year. The test will begin at 8:30am and will end around 11:30am.  Students may arrive at QND any time from 8:00 to 8:25am.  There will be a question and answer session for the parents from 11-11:30am in the cafeteria regarding the placement tests and QND.  The test is designed to help place students in classes best suited to their abilities. It is recommended that all students entering the 9th grade take the placement test whether or not they attend QND. This opportunity is a great prep for the ACT test and the results of the test can be used for any school. Each student should bring the completed registration form (given to students at school), their social security number, $13.00 (checks payable to QND), a calculator, and two #2 pencils. For more information, call counselor Bob Sheffield at 223-2479. More information will be coming home in November.


If you are or know someone who is interested in volunteering to help tutor a child here at St. Francis School, please contact Mr. Hoffman.  We are looking for some extra help for one of our school students.

The St. Francis Faculty and Staff would like to wish all of our school families a very Blessed Thanksgiving.  We are thankful for you allowing us to educate your children.
