WELCOME

On behalf of the Home and School, we would like to welcome everyone to another fabulous school year! The role of the Home and School is to support and foster the strong sense of community here at SKS. We look forward to engaging with SKS families at the various events planned during the school year. Our events agenda includes staples that have traditionally been a hit with SKS families, as well as a couple of new events that we are incredibly excited about introducing this year. Stay tuned for more information! We encourage people who might be interested in volunteering to reach out to anyone on the board and throw your hat in the ring. One thing is certain, this community – from the parish, the school, to our families, SKS is filled with such wonderful people, and we look forward to helping to make everyone’s experience as fulfilling as possible.
We will keep you informed about Home and School events via our Home and School emails. Feel free to contact us at homeandschool@sksschool.org.

Thank you very much to Michelle Johnson who will be chairing the event for us again this year. We are so grateful for her help.  We need many volunteers to make this a smooth and safe event for all of our participants, especially our littles.  Please sign up if you can.  It will be a great morning for our school and community!

New Family Mentor Program

We are making a few adjustments to our New Family Mentor program. Typically, we ask for mentors over the summer, but we’ve learned our incoming families are eager to connect with the SKS community ASAP!  To that end, we are putting out our request for mentors now. As always, there is very little time commitment. We ask that mentors reach out with an introductory phone call or email.  After that, it’s just a few check-ins and reminders throughout the year.
In addition, we are adding a New Family Ice Cream Social to our calendar. Date TBD. This will be a very casual event, on the SKS playground, and give our incoming families a chance to connect with current families and one another. Mentors are invited to come but attendance is not mandatory.
Thank you to everyone who has served as a mentor this year. The feedback is always overwhelmingly positive and we are lucky to have one of the best parent communities around!
