Thursday Things

August 23, 2012

Just a bunch of reminders, notes and interesting things for your Thursday –

The Major Dates calendar on the blog has been updated. Did you note the changes that Dr. Beverlin sent out this week? NOTE: they’re not changes from the calendar in the school directory – they’re changes since the ‘major dates’ calendar was released in the spring.

Back to School Night for parents of students in 6th through 8th grade is tonight. Reminder: Back to School Nights are intended for parents only – please find a sitter for the kids. Thanks.

The Father/Daughter Dance is just a day away! Are the rock stars in your family ready?! Remember that the dance is at the church this year, in the new Parish Hall. See you there, dads & daughters.

 

Mrs. Byrne’s 5th-grade class still leads the Box Tops race for the cookie party this month. Mrs. O’Brien’s 3rd-grade class isn’t far behind. And there are several other contenders with a week left to turn them in. Good luck!

Did you see?  Overland Park, KS was rated one of the top 10 places to live in the U.S. by CNN Money Magazine. We’re ranked #9, to be exact. Click here to read more from the city of Overland Park about the honor.  And, did you know we’re one of just three cities in the nation to be ranked in the top 10 list every year since 2006?  FYI – the other cities in the top 10 this year were Carmel, IN, McKinney, TX, Eden Prairie, MN, Newton, MA, Redmond, MA, Irvine, CA, Reston, VA, Columbia/Ellicott City, MD and Chapel Hill, NC.
