Athletics

From Sarah Wilhelm, Trainer: With a new sports season, just a friendly reminder that when your student athlete goes to the doctor due to an injury, I will need a doctor’s note following the visit with recommendations and ultimately when they are cleared to return to activity. A good rule of thumb to remember is that I’m all for having more information than not enough. This way I can care for your student in the best way possible.

St. John Craft Fair

From St. John’s Elementary School:  Please see the attached fliers for information on St. John’s upcoming Craft Fair! The Craft Fair will be held from 10:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. on Saturday, December 2, and benefits our Jackson Area Catholic Schools!

ACT Testing

The opportunity will be held at Lumen Christi on January 20th, 2018. The cost will be $30 and it will run from 8am-1pm that day. Mark your calendars now so we can help all our students prepare. Attached you will find a form to be used for the registration.

College Planning

From Mr. Havlicek: Parents of Juniors: Right before Christmas Break, all Juniors will be receiving the JUNIOR PLANNING PACKET for COLLEGE in their myjacs.org email account. This important piece of information to help them begin the College Planning Process will be used during their initial college meeting with Mr. H, held between January and the end of March (Spring Break). It is very important that students and parents are able to look through and work through the packet together BEFORE the meeting so they can be best helped for identifying a direction for college. Email Mr. Havlicek (dhavlicek@myjacs.org) with any questions.

From Mrs. Kristovic: Please use this form to let us know if there is something you would like more information about or a Terrific Titan you would like to shout out!
