You would only need to submit an order for 2/25 if you didn’t order last time. The order form is attached. Please print and submit through the Parent Envelope either this week or next week. The deadline will be Friday, 2/22 by 3:00 pm.

8th Grade Fundraiser Opportunities- This Thursday Night from 6 pm to 9 pm!

  • How about a night out on Valentine’s Day? The 8th grade class is providing childcare this Thursday from 6 pm to 9 pm (age 3, toilet trained, and above) so you can get an evening out without the kids. The eighth graders are raising funds for their Washington D.C. trip. Thank you to those that have already signed up… no need to fill out the form again. Any questions? Please contact Sarah Cierebiej at 360-932-9290 (call or text okay) or mscierebiej@q.com

Ride the Bus (Dates have changed due to the snow!)

In order to promote our new school bus, we are offering two things in February:

  1. Ride the bus for free the week of February 18th to February 22nd.  See if your family would benefit from this service. If you think you’ll be participating and you haven’t filled out the forms, please email Mr. Anderson directly at danderson@school.assumption.org so that he might let the drivers know.

FACTS Tuition Management (Updated information)

The new method of payment will coincide with re-registration for families which will begin at the State of the School on Wednesday, February 6th. You will have until March 15th to fill out the registration paperwork and create your account in FACTS. Please see the flier and information in this week’s envelope that explains how to set this up. Remember, if you already have an account in FACTS because you apply for tuition assistance, you will not need to set up a new account.
