July 28, 2017

As summer winds down, we look forward to the new school year. We welcome our new families and look forward to partnering with all our families in the education of your children.

 During the summer, our school grounds have been filled with fun and learning with our summer school program.  We have over 40 students participating in this program. Our Facebook page gives you a glimpse into some of the fun activities that took place. Our sports teams are getting a head start on practices this summer. Both our volleyball and football teams have been working hard. We look forward to a successful fall sports season.

 I am happy to announce that Ms. Valerie will be teaching our three-year olds in preschool. Ms. Amber will be teaching Transitional Kindergarten and Ms. Katie will be our kindergarten aide/preschool extended care. I am confident that these changes will be great for our school as we move into the new school year.

 We are excited to welcome Fr. Alex Rodarte, our new priest minister, to the St. Adelaide community. We look forward to getting to know him and have him interact with our school families.

 We will have a Beautification Day on Saturday, August 19th from 8-11. We were able to get some painting and other tasks accomplished during the summer, but there is always more to do. We would like as many parents as possible to come out and help to clean up the campus for the start of school. All help is welcome, even if it is only for a couple of hours. Please bring gardening equipment. Middle school students can get service hours, but must be accompanied by a parent.

 I thank you for your commitment to Catholic education and all that you do to support St. Adelaide Academy. I invite you to become involved in our school community.  If you have resources that would help our school, please let me know.

See you on August 21!

 Sincerely,

Ms. Malouf

We thank these students for taking on the challenge of student leadership. We are looking forward to all the great activities they will provide for the students.

Remind Communication

We use a text system to communication much of our information to our school families. To sign up, text @stadelaide to 81010. It is important that all parents sign up.

New Curriculum

Our kindergarten through fifth grade will have a new Language Arts curriculum. Our middle school will be using a new grammar/vocabulary program.  All of the students will be using a new Religion curriculum. The teachers spent time at the end of the school year reviewing various curriculum available to make the best choice based on the needs of our students.

First Day of School

Monday, August 21st is a minimum day.  School begins at 8:00 a.m. and dismisses at noon. Please note that the remainder of the week up to Thursday, August 24th will be a full day schedule.  Extended Care will be available beginning August 21st. There is no school or Extended Care on Friday, August 25th. School will be closed to allow teachers to attend a Diocesan Liturgy for all the school staffs in the Diocese.

Students are to be in uniform the first day of school. They should also have their school supplies and emergency bag. For your convenience, the supply list is posted on the school website.

Our first School Mass will be Friday, September 1st.  Students are to wear mass attire.  Friday, September 1st is the first Friday of the month and it is also a minimum day with dismissal at noon.

Extended Care

There is early morning supervision from 7 a.m. -7:55 a.m. You may drop off your child as early as 7 a.m.  The morning drop off car line closes promptly at 7:55 a.m. and the after school pick-up car line closes at 3 p.m.  All students not picked up by 3p.m must go to Extended Care. There is no cost for morning care. The rate for Extended Care in the afternoon is $4/hour. We are now offering monthly rates: $160 (one student), $250 (two students), or $350 (three students). Monthly payments will remain the same each month. Credits cannot be issued for absences or holidays. Prolonged illness (one week or longer) may be credited.

Uniform Requirements

This year our school uniforms can be purchased online at stadelaide.unisourceapparel.com. For your easy reference we gave you a hard copy of the uniform information in June.  All students are expected to be in school uniform for the first day of school. Shirts must have the school logo. All students need to have proper Mass attire uniforms for our first school Mass on September 1st. Dyed or spiked hair or other fad/radical hairstyles are not permitted.

School Cents Program

Bravo, to our School Cents coordinator, Shelia Landagora!  She led our school to 5th place in the Inland Center Mall competition.  We received $600.00 in supplies for our school. Thanks to all who participated in this program.

The program begins again soon and all you do is take the receipts of anything you buy at the Inland Center Mall, even food purchases, to the Guest Services desk and ask them to stamp the receipts for St. Adelaide School.  You can also log in your points online by going to http://www.shoppingpartnership.com/inland/. That’s it!  As you can see, it makes a difference!

Carnival: September 29, 30 & October 1

Volunteers are needed to help out with our 50th annual Carnival.  We will also need help with setup on September 28th and cleanup on October 2nd. All families are expected to help a minimum of 5 hours during that weekend.  A volunteer sign-up form will be sent home during the first week of school and is due September 1st. You will be contacted 2 weeks prior to the Carnival to confirm your commitment. If you are unable to work during the Carnival, please contact Ms. Malouf.

This is our largest fundraiser for the school and parish. It is also a great community event. Please help us to make it a success.

New Parent Orientation

All new families are asked to attend an orientation meeting on Thursday, August 17th at 6 p.m. in the kindergarten classroom. There will be a general session followed by an orientation for new preschool, transitional kindergarten, and kindergarten parents in the respective classrooms.

Back to School Night

All families must attend our Back-to-School Night on Wednesday, August 30th. There will be a group presentation at 6 in the Parish Center, followed by teacher presentations in the classrooms. This is a great opportunity to learn more about our school program and the exciting things that are in store for your child this year. It is also a way to meet other parents at the school. See you there!

This Year’s Theme – “Speak Gently, Love Kindly, Walk Humbly”

 

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.
