Registration for the 2012-2013 school continues. New kindergarten students and returning students were given first priority with registration. If you have not registered your classroom slot could be in jeopardy.
It is imperative that parents of returning students register their children. In fact a family with three children in grades two, four, and six for next year registered their children.
Enrollment caps have been put on each classroom. Once those caps are filled students, including returning students that did not register, will be put on a waiting list. Because of heightened interest in private schools due to the new voucher laws please register your child as soon as possible.
Tuition fees for the 2012-2013 school year are:
One Child $4,158.00 $378.00 per month
Two Children $5,948.00 $540.00 per month

School Closing Information
In the event of bad weather, school closings will be available on the following T.V. stations: Channel 6 (ABC), Channel 8 (CBS), Channel 13 (NBC) and Channel 59 (FOX).
School closings will also be posted on our website (www.strochindy.org) and sent via Homework Watcher and twitter @strochindy.
At St. Roch Catholic school we firmly believe that the first half-hour of student’s day is often the most important. It sets the tone for the day. We also believe that excessive tardies may constitute an obstacle in a child’s ability to make progress.
If a student arrives after the 8:00 a.m. bell, the student must obtain a tardy slip from the office before going to the classroom. This rule applies to all students. Please try to arrive before 7:45 a.m. It makes for a better day.
Students with more than one tardy per quarter will not be eligible for quarterly perfect attendance award.
Please arrive on time!
Market Day provides an excellent opportunity for you to support the classrooms at St. Roch Catholic School, while purchasing delicious, quality food. Market Day can be purchased at www.marketday.com Mrs. Stacey O’Gara and Mrs. Rosanne Strevels are our Market Day co-chairpersons.
During the month of March Market Day will benefit our 1st grade.
