 We are in the last couple of weeks of school. They will be full of final lessons, recognitions and celebrations. As we reflect on the school year, there are many wonderful events and accomplishments that occurred. I would like to thank our school families, students and staff for coming together to make this a wonderful year. May you all have a safe, restful, and happy summer.

I am saddened to announce that one of our valued teachers, Mrs. Cuellar will be leaving our school at the end of the school year. She has been a part of the school faculty for 17 years and has impacted the lives of our children and families in countless ways. We wish her well in her next journey and know she will always be a part of our school. We will be celebrating Mrs. Cuellar in the coming weeks. Please look for details soon.

We wish Fr. Romanus many blessings as he begins his new assignment as Parochial Vicar at St. Mel’s Parish in Norco. We will miss him, his questions, his teachings and his “sound clap”. Our new priest minister beginning July 1st is Fr. Alex Rodarte. We look forward to his involvement with our school and parish.

The 2017-2018 school year will begin on August 21st.

 Please refer to our newsletters, handbook and Remind messages to stay informed.

 Blessings,

Ms. Malouf

Principal

First Communion

Congratulations to our third graders who made their First Communion in May. Congratulations also to David Paulino who received his first three sacraments at Easter. May Christ’s life and love fill them every time they receive Him in the Eucharist. God Bless Them!

Talent Show

We had a wonderful showcase of talent at our annual talent show. In addition, we had a lively auction, some mystery raffle gifts, creative student art, and delicious food. The evening was great fun for all in attendance. As a bonus, not only was it a great night of fellowship, we made a profit of over $4000. Thanks to the staff, volunteers/parents, and students who worked together to make this a successful event. We can’t wait to see what’s in store for next year. Start perfecting that talent now. We would love to see some family acts next year!

Last Day/Awards

Our final day of school is Friday, June 9th. We will begin with Mass at 8:15. Following Mass, we will have an awards ceremony in the Parish Center for grades 1-7. We will conclude the celebration with a video showcasing the wonderful events of the 2016-2017 school year. If you would like a copy of the video, you can place your order in the office for $5. Students may wear appropriate free dress (for church). Dismissal will be at 11 a.m. There is no Extended Care on the last day of school.

Memorial Bricks

Do you want to leave a lasting mark for you or a loved one?

As an effort to help raise money for our school, and as a way to thank and honor our benefactors, we are offering personalized brick tiles that will be prominently displayed in the walkway between the school and the sports field Consider leaving a legacy of time and memories spent at Saint Adelaide Academy.  Imagine a permanent mark for your graduate, where they can come to admire and reminisce year after year.

Did you know we have an increasing number of students who are allergic to peanuts? The allergy can become worse with each episode. The allergic reaction may come when ingesting peanuts or touching something a person with peanuts has touched. The usual reaction for severe allergy is anaphylactic shock. We will have epi-pens on campus. We would like to avoid having peanut products at school as there may be other students who this allergy that have not been diagnosed. How can you help our students? Please do not send peanut butter to school or anything that is peanut-based. We strongly suggest you look at each item you purchase for your child to see if peanuts is listed in boldface on the ingredients. Most products are changing because of the increase of peanut allergies in the general population. The school lunch program does have a peanut butter sandwich offered twice a month.  There is nothing we can do about that. We contract our lunch program with the San Bernardino City Unified School District and unfortunately they do include the peanut butter sandwich.
