On Monday, we honored October’s Students of the Month at a catered Chick Fil A luncheon to celebrate their outstanding work in the classroom. Way to go, Royals!
Last week, a representative from the New York Conservatory of Dramatic Arts came to the parent preview of our fall musical. Miki Lewinski said, “While we knew they were coming, we did not know they came bearing gifts! They were very complimentary of our program. The rep said he had been to a number of high school productions and ours was far superior!” He then awarded 8 - $1,000 scholarships to their summer camp and 2 - $10,000 scholarships to seniors Xavier Wilson and Ian Knight!
Finally, we are walking next week, Wednesday, November 24! Students will arrive at 7:30 AM and be dismissed at 1:00 PM. We will be adjusting the schedule for both Tuesday and Wednesday of that week. Here are the schedules for those two days. It is a block schedule where students go to periods 1-8 over the course of two days and have 75 minute classes. We will still adhere to the Tuesday student late arrival with school beginning at 8:20 AM.
We want our students to experience this event together. With the delay of the walk, this gives our students the opportunity to meet their goals. We will continue to collect Walkathon donations in the Advancement Office and distribute t-shirts. Please see Mrs. Endris to turn in donations and collect t-shirts.
The students voted and the Roncalli Royals mascot is named “Rowdy!”
We will return to our traditional Final Exam Schedule. Click here to see it.
With winter fast approaching, here is our elearning learning plan that is stated in the student handbook:
The school calendar traditionally has four days designated as “Snow Make-up Days”: Martin Luther King Day, Presidents Day, Easter Monday and the final Friday of the school year. Should we cancel school for any reason during the school year, we will use the next “Snow Make-up Day” available on the school calendar as an E-learning day. Students will not report physically to school on an E-learning day. They will be required to log into their Canvas account by 10:00 AM for attendance purposes and to complete assignments given to them by their teachers for this E-learning day. Roncalli will not use an E-learning day on the actual day for which school is canceled.
If you missed the Choice Scholarship (formerly known as a voucher), there is a second application window open now until January 15th. Click here for more informaton. If you have any questions or want to see if you qualify, please contact Amy Kuntz.
You can catch the Girls Basketball game Staurday on roncallimedianetwork.com.
