Families of St.Ignatius Catholic School, do you have questions about the new high school?

WANTED!  YOUR CHILD'S ST. IGNATIUS LOGO APPAREL
Did your child outgrow their St. Ignatius logo apparel? Please consider donating your logo apparel to our "St. Ignatius Apparel Exchange". Place your gently used logo apparel in the tote marked "Apparel Exchange" outside of the 220 Doty Street entrance by Friday, June 24.

Items in the Apparel Exchange will be available for families on August 19 at the School Supply Drop Off. There is no charge for items in the Apparel Exchange. Families are free to take what they need!

 

SCRIP 
Using SCRIP can help pay for your school tuition and it's an easy way to save money by using gift cards at the businesses you already frequent. As a convenience to you, we also offer the delivery of your SCRIP to St. Ignatius during the school year.

Contact Lisa Natrop at the parish office for more information (920-766-1445).

 

CATECHESIS OF THE GOOD SHEPHERD (CGS)
Catechesis of the Good Shepherd (CGS) is based on a Montessori approach to learning about Jesus and our Faith.  St. Ignatius Catholic School will offer CGS sessions to Preschool through 1st grade during the 2021-2022 school year.  We are in need of consistent volunteers to help our students grow in their Faith.  Is this something you might be interested in?  The only requirement is that you complete VIRTUS training through the Diocese of Green Bay (more information on VIRTUS is below) 

If you feel called to help establish a connection to Jesus in our littlest students, please take a moment to click on the this link and fill out some information:  https://forms.gle/LuLgrkHRhSa91ARs6

 

VIRTUS TRAINING 
ALL volunteers are required to be VIRTUS trained before generously offering their time to help at St. Ignatius Catholic School in any capacity. As with any school within the Green Bay Diocese, this training pertains to all parents, grandparents, relatives, parishioners, or anyone who would like to volunteer.

SERVICE HOURS OPPORTUNITY FOR 2021-2022 SCHOOL YEAR - THE ELECTRIC CITY EXPERIENCE
