Faculty Professional Development – HALF-DAY DISMISSAL


IRIS Emergency System Test Once again this year, we will use the IRIS Emergency Notification System if we have need to get out an announcement in quick fashion. Some schools use this for all sorts of reminders, but we have chosen to limit its use to emergencies. And most commonly that has meant closing for inclement weather. We are going to test the system on Tuesday, October 23rd at 3:30 p.m. Just a reminder, that we will be reaching out via phone, text, and e-mail to whatever phones and e-mails you provided on your Registration Form. If, after this test, you need to change any of your contact information, please send an e-mail to Chris Truckner at trucknerc@sbaeagles.org or Claire Sweeney at sweeneyc@sbaeagles.org Thank you. And hopefully we won’t need it again.


th

November 7 Early Dismissal On Wednesday, November 7th, the SBA Faculty and Staff will be participating in a Professional Development opportunity. In order for this to happen, we will be operating on a half-day schedule with students dismissing at 11:45am. Athletic practices and play rehearsals will be at their normal times on that day.

School Picture Proofs School picture proofs have arrived and will be distributed during 1st period on Thursday, October 18th. Students will have until Friday, November 2nd (even though the form does not say this) to order school pictures. Any pictures that are ordered AFTER November 2nd, will be charged a $10 late fee. If your student does not like their picture, he or she will have an opportunity to retake their picture during their lunch period on Thursday, November 8th. Unlike in years past, we do NOT need to have the proofs back.

Bobby Russell Scholarship The Bobby Russell Scholarship deadline has been extended to October 24th. This scholarship is open to all SBA students.


NEWS FROM HOME AND SCHOOL Volunteer opportunities are open for sign up via signupgenius.com. See links below. In addition, we have a call out for some additional volunteers needed: • Father/Son Outing - We need 3 moms or dads to assist with preparation and during the event. These can be junior or senior moms or dads. It would be nice it is just the guys and their dads. A great opportunity for junior parents to volunteer and see what they have to look forward to next year. This event will be in the spring of 2013. • Mother/Son Dinner - We need 4 junior moms to assist with set up the day of the event, help during the event and clean up. This can be in shifts or the entire time. Event date is TBD, but set up is typically noon-2pm and the event should last no more than 3 hours, with 30-40 min for clean up. Having the junior moms allows our senior moms to spend time with their sons. For both of these volunteer opportunities, please contact Nancy Wiley at: 901.340.0244 or kwiley74@comcast.net http://www.signupgenius.com/go/10C0A4CABAC29A64-sbamonthly - link to Sign Up Genius for Monthly Teacher Treats http://www.signupgenius.com/go/10C0945A5AE23A20-first -- link to Sign Up Genius for First Friday Adoration http://www.SignUpGenius.com/go/4090B48AFA728A20-8thgrade -- link to 8th Grade Visit Days (HELP IS NEEDED FOR OCT 18 and 25) We are also looking for help with our Annual Fashion Show coming up in February. Any businesses interested in catering or donating items for our raffle baskets, please contact Romy Schaaf at rbschaaf64@att.net or by phone at 901.359.7821. We will be having a planning meeting soon. If you are interested in being part of this committee, please let Romy know as well or contact Lori Regis at SBA.

EAGLE BUCKS YOU WON’T BELIEVE HOW IT ADDS UP! The Eagle Bucks program lets you earn money for St. Benedict OR tuition credit for yourself while shopping! All you have to do is buy gift cards from us! With more than 50 gift cards to choose from including, Target, Starbucks, Walmart, Kroger, Old Navy, Outback, Chili’s, Bahama Breeze and more, you are sure to find something for everyone in our selection. To place your order, fill out and turn in an Eagle Bucks form. They are available at http://www.sbaeagles.org/eaglebucks or in our main school office. You can designate the money to go to your Tuition Account, The SBA Annual Fund, or an SBA Organization. Orders are placed on a weekly basis and SBA receives a percentage of the sale of the gift card. Last year, this program raised almost $50,000 for SBA and that was with minimal participation. Can you imagine if we all took advantage of this? Especially with Christmas right around the corner!

Thank you so much for helping SBA!

The Scripps/Eagle Bucks Program raised over $50,000 for SBA last year. This makes a major difference in the programs we are able to offer our students. Please consider purchasing your holiday gift cards from SBA. Thank you for supporting the SBA Annual Fund.

Just Imagine…

SBA

Saint Benedict at Auburndale Target REDcard SBA Annual Fund Great News! We received a check from Target’s Take Charge of Education Program for $2,095.38. This is such a great and easy way to beef up our Annual Fund each year. We are thrilled with this gift, but out of curiosity, looked in on our school’s progress using Target’s user-friendly website. Guess what? We only have 79 Target credit cards out there that over a period of time have totaled over $20,000 in donations over the years. CAN YOU IMAGINE IF WE ALL DESIGNATED SBA ON OUR TARGET CARDS AS OUR SCHOOL OF CHOICE? Who doesn’t go to Target? We are getting settled into the new school year, and are kicking off our Annual Fund drive. If you have a quick second, there are a few scenarios below. What a GREAT way to give to the school, and after the initial sign up, it is effortless. Please consider this super-easy way for SBA to receive a percentage of the amount of each Target purchase you make with your card. If you do not have a Target REDcard, you can go to Target.com to download the application, or pick one up in the store. If you already have a Target REDcard, you can go to their website to designate Saint Benedict as your school of choice. It is easy to search for by city and state. To see the progress report on our school and how much we have received from the Take Charge of Education program, check back to Target.com periodically. You will be amazed at how it adds up!

Thank you so much for supporting SBA!

Last year SBA teamed up with St. Agnes and CBHS to support the Wings Cancer foundation through football game ticket sales. We are doing this, again, by selling tickets to our home football game with CBHS (Oct. 26) for $10.00 with $3.00 of each ticket sale going to Wings. We will have tickets on sale in the main office this week and at the gate on Friday. Your participation is greatly appreciated.


WEAR PINK WEEK FOR WINGS For a donation, students (and faculty) may add some “PINK” to their school uniform/attire each and every day THIS week. Our intent is not to distract from the educational process, but allow our students to help out. As we traditionally tell our students, if in doubt about what they are wearing – bring a backup. MALES may wear a pink tie (bow ties are acceptable), pink belt, pink socks, pink shoe laces, and pink suspenders. We’re asking that anything worn have no writing or images visible and realizing a solid pink tie may be difficult to find – as long as we can see pink – it’s pink! FEMALES may wear pink socks, pink shoe laces, pink bows/headbands, pink suspenders and pink tights. Again, nothing with writing or images. ALL OF THE ABOVE ITEMS ARE TO BE WORN AS A SUBSTITUTION FOR THE SBA TIE, SOCKS, SUSPENDERS, UNDERSHIRT, AND SHOE LACES THAT ARE ACCEPTABLE FOR DAILY WEAR. Next Thursday & Friday, ALL STUDENTS are allowed to wear one of the two t-shirts that we will be selling for $10 at all lunches & in the school office next week. Males must still wear school uniform pants (khakis) & females must still wear school uniform skirt or jumper.
