Welcome to Monsignor Haller Catholic Elementary School for the 2019-2020 school year!
Whether your child is returning to Monsignor Haller or attending for the first time, we are excited that you will be part of the Haller family community.
Our goal is to create a Christ-centred, positive, encouraging and stimulating learning environment for our students so that each child will have the opportunity to learn, experience and grow to his or her potential.
We believe that to achieve the most fulfilling and rewarding education for your child, we must work together as a team. Children’s attitudes, values, and self-concepts are molded at home and at school; therefore, a positive and mutually supportive home/school partnership is essential to encourage learning, skill development, self-discipline, responsibility, respect for self, others and the environment, appropriate values and a sense of self-worth.
We look forward to your continued support throughout the year.
First Day of School:
A reminder that all students in grades 1-8 will meet on the back yard blacktop on the first day of school. Look for teacher signs and we will direct you to your new teacher.
Welcome to our families in JK who will meet their new school/teacher for a visit!
Lastly, we look forward to having our SK’s return to school on Wednesday September 4th!
School Start Up Paperwork:
Many forms have been posted on SchoolCash Online. Some will come home on paper from your child’s teacher. We will support families in returning the correct forms to the correct person this upcoming week!
New this year: your child will receive a school agenda once payment has been received. Kindly use SchoolCash Online for this transaction. Agendas will be available for purchase at our Welcome Back to School evening on September 10th.
Please fill out the paperwork promptly your child’s complete registration.
Most importantly are:
-the verification forms which indicate updated addresses, contact names and phone numbers
-consent for team/clubs/intramurals tryouts and walking to church form
-Please sign up for SchoolCash Online if you have not done so already. We have moved to cashless transactions this year (including PIZZA DAYS). NO cash will be accepted.
In addition, it is extremely important for the office to be aware of documented medical concerns, custody updates or other information to ensure a successful day for your child. Call the office anytime and we would be happy to help you.
Blessed Sacrament Parish Update:
Mrs. Koehler has retired from Blessed Sacrament Church. At this time we do not have any information about a school liaison. Your child’s teacher and the office will help communicate information right now, concerning Sacramental Preparation (grade 2: First Reconciliation & Holy Communion; Grade 7: Confirmation)
Parents must have their child registered for the appropriate Sacrament. Feel free to call us or the church for more information.
Families who have expressed an interest in the Catholic faith as they are attending Monsignor Haller Catholic School must call the school for updates regarding baptism, First Communion, Reconciliation and Confirmation.
As a Catholic School community we look forward to continuing out celebration of our faith in monthly liturgies, daily prayer several times a day and Christian Meditation each afternoon.
