2023-2024 Budget news

Mandatory Parent Contract Meeting Wed., March 8th

TIME: 7:00pm
DATE: 3/08/23

2023-2024 Budget: The Budget Committee has been hard at work over the past two months working on next year’s budget. We will present the budget at the Parent Contract meeting which will be Wednesday, March 8th in the parish hall starting at 7:00 PM. Childcare will be provided. There will be tuition increase at approximately $500 over last year. The Budget Committee along with the support of the School Commission has made the decision to phase out the multi-child discount starting in the 2024-2025 school year. I will explain the reasons at the Parent Contact meeting. Tuition Assistance forms are being sent out in this week’s newsletter and are due back by Feb. 23rd, 2023, you will not be eligible for tuition assistance if you do not return the form back on time. The Tuition Assistance Committee will be meeting shortly after that to make decisions and this needs to be done before the Parent Contract meeting. Just a reminder, anyone requesting tuition assistance from St. Philomena School must have applied for Fulcrum grants, otherwise you are not eligible for any additional help. Additionally, financial obligations such as Anchor Fund, Splash Commitment and parish stewardship/donations must be fulfilled in order to receive tuition assistance.

The big news for next year is that we are re-starting our art program. Ms. T. will be the art teacher and will be providing students in PreK-8th grade weekly art lessons!!
