Catholic Schools Week Update
Thank you for all of the donations for the Student to Student: A Catholic School Response to Hurricane Relief 2017. Our one-day OGJH grand total was $774.80! This total will be combined with the other SFCS schools and 100% of the money will go towards the rebuilding of Catholic schools in communities impacted by recent hurricanes and wildfires.

Parent-Teacher Conferences—Thursday, February 15
Parent-Teacher Conferences will be held on Thursday, February 15, from 7:30-6:00 (Please note there is a break from 1:00-2:00) in the OGJH Gymnasium. Parents are always encouraged to bring their child with them to conferences. Each individual conference will be limited to 5 minutes. If you feel that you may need longer with a teacher, please consider scheduling an appointment with them.Please click here for the full conference schedule, including the times for individual teachers.

Spanish I/German I Application (Current 7th Grade Students Only)
Click here to access the Spanish I/German I Application form for the 2018-2019 school year. Please read the form carefully as it is important to have a solid understanding of the criteria and considerations prior to applying. If you would like your child to be considered for either Spanish I or German I for 2018-2019, please fill out the form and return it to the school office by Friday, March 2.

Yearbook
Students were given a yearbook order form in their homeroom. If your child would like to purchase a yearbook, we would ask the form and money ($15.00) be returned to their homeroom teacher by Friday, March 2. In case your child misplaces the form, you can click here to access it.

Re-enrollment for 2018-2019 School Year
Re-enrollment for current families for the 2018-2019 school year will begin on February 17thYou will be sent an email with a link to re-enroll your child for the coming school year. Please be certain that TADS has a current email address for your account. You will receive one email per child enrolled. We are asking all current families to complete both your child’s enrollment form and the tuition agreement by February 25thYour child will not be considered enrolled until both are completed in their entirety.

A couple of further notes regarding re-enrollement, particularly those who will be attending O’Gorman Junior High School next school year (current 7th grade class): One part of the enrollment will be asking if your child will be in band, choir, and/or orchestra. Please have the conversation with your child prior to registration regarding their enrollment in these courses. Since much of our overall scheduling is dependent on music enrollment, it is crucial that we receive an accurate number of involvement in these programs. It makes the scheduling process very difficult if students decide at a later time to not be involved in a music class after the initial enrollment. We appreciate your help in this matter.

Enrollment for NEW families opens on Monday, February 26th via our website. Please encourage families to enroll… and share the good news of Sioux Falls Catholic Schools!
