Welcome Back to School!

September 12, 2017

Hello! 

I am excited to be the homeroom teacher for the 8th grade!  I have some fun things planned for this, their last year at St. Pius X!  I hope that you will come to Curriculum Night on Wednesday, 9/20 because I plan to impart my plans for the year, classroom information, curriculum for Religion and Math and high school application information.  The process for applying for private high school begins in September and continues through January 8, 2018.  It is important that you are aware of the timeline so that you will not miss out on any important steps that will prepare your child for their next adventure in high school.  If you are unable to come to Curriculum Night, I will send home information in packet form.

Communication

We have a new website with the same web address as before; http://www.stpx.org.  For updates particular to 8th Grade, go to "Classrooms and Programs".  Click on "8th Grade".  Click on one of the 4 tabs to find the information you are looking for:  "General Information", "News Items", "Homework", "Class Gallery".  I update the website each weekend to include the homework for the upcoming week.  Paper newsletters will be distributed through the Tuesday folder at the beginning of each month.  If there are updates to that information within the month, the website will be updated under the "News Items" tab.  Please check this periodically.  I will also be working with the students on their planners.  You can communicate to me through the planner where indicated.  I will be checking planners on Fridays, so if it is an urgent need, please contact me via email.  I check my email periodically throughout the day.  pvanhollebeke@stpx.org.

If you would like to meet to discuss anything regarding your child, we can make an appointment.  You can call the school, or email me and I will be happy to get back to you quickly!  If you want to pop in for an impromptu meeting, I am available after school at the following times:

Tuesday/Wednesday:  7:45am-8:25am, 3:15pm-4pm
