Mishawaka Catholic School launches open registration

Mishawaka Catholic students are registering at the new school for the 2011-2012 school year. On March 12, an informational enrollment night was held.

MISHAWAKA — Incoming Mishawaka Catholic School Principal Vikki Wojcik introduced the 2011-2012 school’s administration during an informational enrollment night held on Saturday, March 12.

Families interested in attending Mishawaka Catholic School for the 2011-2012 school year at the three campus sites: St. Bavo — Early Childhood Development Program through second grade; St. Joseph — third through fifth grade; and St. Monica — sixth through eighth grade, had an opportunity to learn more about the programs being offered. In addition, the teaching staff, representatives from the Home and School Association, athletics, marketing, development, Early Childhood Program, Catholic identity, FACTS and SCRIP were available.

Mishawaka Catholic’s Early Childhood Development Program at the St. Bavo campus will provide an individualized curriculum using research-based best practices with an integrated lesson plan promoting a readiness for a successful transition into kindergarten.

To help alleviate “first day” jitters in the fall, Mishawaka Catholic School also conducted a “Visit Your New Campus” field trip for all students who are currently in grades kindergarten-7. Students could become familiarized with their new campus environment, ask questions regarding their new school and learn about some of the enhancements and enrichment programs that will take place in the next school year. The students toured their respective school, classrooms, gymnasium and the church. Each pastor celebrated Mass with the students. For many this was their first time to meet the pastor assigned to the particular parish.

The eighth-grade class at each campus participated in a community project at the Golden Living Center in Mishawaka as one group.

Wojcik stated, “What a great event, it was a rich learning opportunity for everyone involved.”

Open registration began in March. For more information regarding the 2011-2012 registration year, please contact Vicki Zmirski at (574) 255-0709 or at [email protected].
