Congratulations to Noah Linley, Stratton Dunn, and Bryant Johnson for winning our school Geography Bee!
FREE FRIDAY: We are changing Greens for Jeans to FREE Friday. In order to have more participation and raise more money for each cause, students may now pay $1.00 to have FREE CHOICE in the bottoms they wear on a designated FREE FRIDAY with their St. Elizabeth tshirt. Please be reminded of the Free Dress Day guidelines which will apply to the bottoms worn on Free Friday.
Shorts: Running shorts with slit/flap on the side should not be worn. Running/exercise shorts should follow the same guidelines as all other shorts. As these shorts are typically flowy/loose fitting, all areas of the bottom should be covered up even when bending, squatting, or sitting.
Skorts/skirts: The length should follow the guidelines for all short/skirt/skort lengths.
Leggings: Leggings may only be worn with shirts completely covering the bottom. The shirt should cover the bottom when bending over and sitting down.
Friday, February 14, is our first Free Friday! Proceeds will go toward the medical costs for Rob Smith, whose son attends our MMO program. Rob was in a very serious accident. Please keep this family in your prayers.
FEDERAL PROGRAMS SURVEYS: Please see the insert about a survey ALL FAMILIES need to complete. You will receive a link to the survey via text message and email at 5:30 today. If we get 100% participation (at least one per family), students will get a THEMED dress day!
REGISTRATION: Please see the enclosed packets for Registration for the 2020-2021 school year. Please read the packet carefully as there are a few changes to payment options and other aspects of tuition this year.

The school will not accept any Valentine’s Day deliveries.

ILLNESSES AND FLU: Please continue to be vigilant in looking for signs of the flu in your child. If they complain of not feeling well- stomachache, headache, being hot, and body pains- please keep them home for observation or take them to the doctor. Thank you to our parents for keeping their children home for several days, letting the fever and symptoms end before allowing them to return to school.
