Friday, August 29

Creating a positive student culture is an essential part of every school.  This year we will be adding some programs for students.
  • Freshman Academy - A support system for freshman.  
  • Tuesday Assemblies - 15 minutes a week to present positive messages to the high school student body.  Mr. Bode is leading the efforts in this area.  We will talk about digital citizenship, how we treat each other, build school spirit and highlight some of the awesome activities that happen at Garrigan.
  • Digital Citizenship Program - Grades K -12 will learn about many aspects of online safety, appropriate use, and cyber-etiquette.
  • Keeping our "anthem" front and center.  BE THE GOOD...IT"S WHO WE ARE!!!

Can we still order a Chromebook?

The first order of Chromebooks came in today.  We will be ordering another set tomorrow.  We will try to order every two weeks, if the need arises.  Remember that the Chromebooks are back-ordered so it may take up to 8 weeks to arrive.  Email or call if you want to order ($350).

We Made It!

Happy First Friday -
It feels so wonderful to have students back in the halls of Bishop Garrigan.  Thanks to the Parents in Action group for providing donuts and juice for the first day of school.  Has your child received a postcard?  Each 7-12 student will receive a positive postcard sometime this semester.  Watch for it in the mail!

Questions answered by Mrs. Peterson

Who has questions?

Mrs. Hough and I have noticed that many parents are calling, emailing, or posting on Facebook with similar questions.  We want to be able to quickly reach parents who have similar questions.  We will continue to send mass emails from the office, but this might be a quicker and more efficient way to communicate.
