ANNOUNCEMENTS

From Mrs. Kristovic:  Titan Time has kicked off the year with huge success! We are averaging about 50 students a day taking advantage of this free opportunity.  Monday – Friday, from 3:15 – 5:15, we offer free supervision, fun, and tutoring in the library. Students can drop in at any time.  This program costs us about $10,000 per year, but we believe it is critical for our students to have a safe space after school and to support the often complicated schedules of our families.  If you use Titan Time regularly or just think it is an essential asset for our school community, please consider a small gift to support Titan Time.  We are hoping to collect $1,000 per month with voluntary donations to ensure this program continues.

From Registrar: Parents and Students please continue to check your PowerSchool for grades and assignment information and email regularly for announcements, and important information.

From Mrs. Fleming, Testing Coordinator: The Pre SAT, National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT) will be administered to all juniors on Wednesday, October 10th.  This test is especially important because, for many of our juniors, it is the only chance they will have to take a timed, paper test similar to the ACT prior to their formal testing date in February.  This is a great opportunity for them to practice their skills and identify areas for improvement. It also enters students in the National Merit Scholarship program. It is important for all juniors to be in school and on time that morning.  Students need to bring their $16 to the Main office by Wednesday, October 10.  Please make your check out to Lumen Christi.

From the Drama Department:  It’s that time again!  Time for what?  The Fall Play!  Auditions for “Christmas in Two Acts” will be held on Tuesday, October 2nd at 6:30 p.m. – 9 p.m., Call Backs will be on Wednesday, October 3rd at 6:30 p.m. – 9 p.m. for any student in grades 9 – 12.  There are parts available for all levels of theatre experience.  Come and join the fun!  Pick up an audition form in the library, if you have any questions check with Mrs. L in the library.

From the Main Office: Each Tuesday, with the exception of Holy Days of Obligation, we celebrate Mass in the cafeteria with all grades attending.   Mass begins at 9:30 a.m. and ends at 10:25 a.m.  If your student has an appointment during this time frame on a Mass day, please call us or have your student bring a note from you to the Main Office before the school day begins.  We will have your student wait in the Main Office for the appointment time instead of attending Mass.  If at all possible, we request that you avoid this time for appointments so that we can celebrate Mass as an entire community.  Thank you for your consideration!

From the Main Office: We are always looking for substitute teachers!  If you have an interest in subbing at the school, please email Kit Spoelstra at kspoelstra@myjacs.org — We would love to talk to you about the opportunity that is on occasion, sometimes last minute, but filled with the gratification that you are helping us keep our students engaged in learning, when teachers are away from the classroom.

From Mrs. Leigh:  We are looking for help!  We need 2 parent volunteers each day of the week Monday – Friday to help us serve lunch to our amazing students.  The times are approximately 11:20 – 12:20 M, W, Th, F, and 12:00 – 1:00 Tuesday. Please e-mail Linda Leigh at lleigh@myjacs.org if you can help!
