Dear Parents and Guardians,
With Thanksgiving a week away, it is important to slow down and reflect on our blessings. I am blessed to be a part of St. Isidore Catholic School. Thank you to the wonderful students, families, staff members, and parishioners for welcoming me back to SIS. It’s a great place to be!
Parent Teacher conferences begin today after school. Tomorrow is a half day of school with dismissal at 11am for conferences as well. The following week the school is closed for Thanksgiving break.
ThankScripting Day is Today! ShopwithScrip is having their one-day ThankScripting Day today, November 21st where you can earn some of the biggest rebate bonuses of the year. Over 100 retailers will offer up to a 21% rebate on eGift cards and case reloads. Remember that SIS receives the benefit of the cash rebate and you receive a deduction on your school tuition equal to the rebate earned. Visit ShopwithScrip.com (SIS code: 144AC23CF841L) to stock up on those early holiday gifts, Black Friday/ Cyber Monday shopping or a family night out.
Inclement Weather – It’s that time of year…in the event winter weather dictates that school must close for the day, you will be notified through School Speak- email and text message. To prepare, please be sure you have your mobile phone number and carrier listed in your School Speak profile. If your School Speak profile does not include your mobile information, you will not receive any text messages from our system. Unfortunately, School Speak does not have phone call capability, so we will be relying on email and text messages for emergency information. You can also check the status of St. Isidore Catholic School through the Emergency Closing system website, radio announcements, and local broadcast crawls.
Christmas Concert- Our school Christmas concert is December 8th at 3pm for grades 1-5. Students should wear their “Christmas best”.
Santa’s Workshop – Santa’s workshop is looking for elves! If you are able to spend some time volunteering, please sign up on School Speak. Santa’s Workshop is also in need of some specific donations to help make the experience enjoyable for our students. If you are able, we are in need of Christmas gift bags (for wrapping) and gift cards in $5 denominations. Please send into the school office. Additional details are on the Santa’s Workshop flyer posted on School Speak.
Football Mania – Congratulations to Diane Homan who won $25 on a ticket sold by the Lindgren family.
Hot Lunch Orders – December hot lunch orders are due tomorrow morning. Please be sure the office has your order forms.

Another Welcome Back!!! I am pleased to welcome Gloria Lorusso as our Director of Advancement. Gloria is a parishioner, her children went to St. Isidore School, and she was a part of the Gala committee here for many, many years. Gloria is a well-known business strategist who is excited to bring her knowledge, expertise, and high level of energy to St. Isidore Catholic School. Gloria has an awesome vision that is inline with the vision of the school and the parish. Please join me in welcoming Gloria.
I look forward to seeing our parents throughout the next two days. I hope you are able to enjoy family time next week and I wish you a wonderful Thanksgiving. School will resume on December 2nd as we journey together through Advent.
