Preschool Parent Meetings, 6-7
Unpack Your Backpack, 6:00 – 7:00
- Finish your back to school shopping with supply lists and the school uniform policy. Both can be found under “For Parents”, “Policies and Forms.”
- Several individuals and groups have inquired about installing a permanent memorial for Peg Gooder out by the playground equipment. We are now accepting donations for a memorial bench to be purchased and installed in her memory. If you or your organization would like to make a donation for such a memorial, please send it to the school office in an envelope labeled, “Peg Gooder memorial.” Checks can be written to Our Lady of Victory.
- Replacement of the boiler and controls in 17 classrooms is finishing. The estimated cost of this project was nearly $172,000 when approved by OLV’s Finance Council. Since then, we have received a Scott County Regional Authority (Bettendorf riverboat) grant for nearly $20,000 to pay for the electronic controls in classrooms and some offices. The Mid-American rebates keep getting better too, and we may be close to $25,000 Every bit of savings that we have in these projects puts us that much closer to a doable timeline for air conditioning and ventilation! We are so grateful for the parish investment in its school!
