eFolder for May 12

Happy Friday! May Crowning and Awards Day are behind us, yearbooks have been handed out, and graduation is next Thursday! It’s hard to believe that we are at the end of another school year. Just a couple of weeks to go until SUMMER BREAK!

Good luck to our SMS Marksmen at the IESA state track meet this weekend!

Financial Assistance

Tuition contracts have been mailed to all families. St. Mary’s families that are in need of additional financial assistance need to contact St. Mary’s Parish. Msgr. Deptula is asking that each family submit IN WRITING the following to him:

  • Copies of the FACTS information

  • Copy of their tuition contract from St. Mark

  • A letter from a St. Mary’s Cathedral staff member verifying their active participation in the St. Mary’s Cathedral parish

  • A letter indicating exactly how much additional help they are requesting from the St. Mary’s Cathedral parish

These letters and additional documents are due to the Cathedral parish office by the June 15, 2017. By the second half of July, St. Mary’s will send the families’ letters indicating any additional help they can provide.

Any St. Mark families will need to submit a letter to the St. Mark Tuition Assistance Committee if you are seeking additional financial assistance. Please note that you must also have applied in FACTS.

Additional Financial Matters

Please make sure that all accounts are paid before the end of the school year. This includes tuition, aftercare to date, and lunch accounts. If you are having difficulty making the required payments, please stop in the office to let us know what is going on. We would like to close the books on this school year as soon as possible.
