Class Placements - Parent Input 2017 (Placement-Request-Student-2017.pdf)
The staff of St. Catherine of Siena will meet during the month of May to begin discussing an appropriate placement for each student for next year. When determining placement, some of the criteria we consider are: Academic ability, Individual work habits and study skills, Maturity, Date of birth, Social considerations,  Placement history.  If you have any concerns about your child’s class placement for September, please complete the attached ‘Parent Input for Class Placement’. You are asked to return these forms to Mrs. Pedroso and/or Mr. Scicluna. Please refrain from making a request for a specific teacher as staffing is always tentative and changes often take place between the time of tentative class placement and September. Our decisions are made after careful consideration of all relevant information and are based on the individual strengths and needs of each child. All forms must be in by April 29, 2017.

Pizza Days 2016-2017  --  Blank Generic Form PDF 
This year, as one of our ECO schools initiatives, we will not be providing Milk or Water as part of the Pizza Day Combo. Children will be asked to bring their own drinks, and are encouraged to use one of our Water Filling Stations. Pizza orders are now for three weeks. Prices reflect the removal of the drink and the three week order. Many thanks for your continued support. Any profits made from Pizza Days go directly to students. (Form will be sent home with students, here is a Generic Form - PDF)
>
Combos only:  Orders cannot be broken up in anyway, they’re sold as a combo. We’ve added water to your choice.
> Absent:  If your child is away, we cannot provide a refund –as everything is pre-ordered. However, parents are welcome to pick up their child’s lunch that day.
