  • Incarnation Childrens Choir

    August 23, 2017

    Incarnation’s Children’s Choir

     

     

    Incarnation’s Children’s Choir is comprised of students from all elementary schools in grades 3 – 8.  Rehearsals are every Thursday in the choir room, located in the church, from 4:30 – 5:30 pm.  We sing at a Saturday evening 5:30 pm Mass or Sunday morning Mass, usually 9:00 am or 10:30 am Mass, about once every three weeks.

     

    No musical background or experience is needed, just the willingness and enthusiasm to want to sing and have fun, and attend as many rehearsals as possible.  We also sing secular music at various other venues in the community especially at Christmas time.  We perform a half hour show of sacred and secular music, some with choreography, such as one of our favorites: Rollerskatin’ Reindeer.  

     

    All students interested in joining should come to our first rehearsal on Thursday, August 31st at 4:30 pm.  Please use the door on the back side of the church and bring your child into the choir room to fill out and sign an information sheet.  If you can’t come this Thursday, please just come next week.

     

    If attending weekly rehearsals might be a problem, please see me so as not to let your child miss out on a great choral experience.  

     

    Each week I need one parent who is VIRTUS trained to sit with us during rehearsal.

     

    The Children’s Choir has a lot of fun learning to sing, learning to read music through games, singing at Masses, and performing in the community.  We have a large choir room that we want to fill with the sound of children’s voices so please encourage your child to at least give us a try.  Once the students experience the fun of singing together, they want to keep coming each week.

     

    For any questions or concerns please contact Kevin Samblanet, Director of Music at

    Kevin.Samblanet@incarnation-parish.com or call the parish offices at 433-1188 ext. 214.

    The season runs from January to early April.  Games are held only once a week, on either Saturday or Sunday, in the school’s multi-purpose room.  Practice is conducted during the 30 minutes immediately prior to each game. Games are 45 minutes each, so the commitment is only 1 hour, 15 minutes per week.

     

    The registration fee is $22 per child, and includes a jersey.

     

     

    To sign up your child, please go online at incarnationcyo.org.

    Online registration link may be found on the School web site under athletics/registration forms.

    All coaches must complete the child protection decree class(virtus training) and receive a background check before the season begins. There will be no exceptions to this rule.   Details for scheduled classes and background checks can be found here www.incarnation-school.com  under athletics/Registration Forms.  Open the form titled “Virtus Training and Background Check information”.

  • Cafeteria and Playground Volunteers needed. Sign up Included

    July 26, 2016

     


     

     Can you volunteer 5 hours in a year to keep our children safe?

     

    That's correct!  The minimum expectation for each family is only five hours for the entire year to assure the safety of our children. With over 500 families, we can easily have 3-5 volunteers each day -- on the playground, in the cafeteria, and more.  Read below to learn about our easier method for signing up and for the incentives to volunteer!

     

    This year we are moving to a new system to help us better manage our wonderful volunteers as we  keep our children safe.   We have set up a system called Sign Up Genius where each volunteer will sign up for the day(s) they can work.  If each family takes a minimum of 5 hours  throughout the year at a time that is convenient for you, our volunteer goals will be covered. 

     

    Specifications:  For the cafeteria and recess help, the minimum number of Virtus Trained volunteers needed for each day is two, and four volunteers would be better.  Please remember that siblings are NOT allowed to come while you are volunteering (a little too distracting). What will you be asked to do?   Volunteers keep a watchful eye on students (especially during recess and lunch) to ensure safety, cleanliness, efficiency, and good behavior. It's a terrific opportunity to observe the interaction between and among the children!    Will you consider giving us a helping hand?

     

    Incentives:  Not that anyone needs more than a request to step forward, but we do have a couple of incentives for homerooms that are "just for fun!"   Each of the following is for a single homerooms:

     

    1.  At least one parent in each family is Virtus trained. A grandparent may also be Virtus trained, but may only be counted for one of their grandchildren's homerooms (apologies to the loving grandparents!) = Additional recess time for the homeroom.

    2.  25% of the representatives from each family achieves the 5 hour minimum requirement for volunteering = Additional recess time for the homeroom.  

    2.  50% of the representatives from each family achieves the 5 hour minimum requirement for volunteering = Out of uniform day for the homeroom AND additional recess time for the homeroom. 

    3.  75% of the representatives from each family achieves the 5 hour minimum requirement for volunteering = Out of uniform day for the homeroom, additional recess time for the homeroom, AND Slushies for each child. 

    4.  100% of the representatives from each family achieves the 5 hour minimum requirement for volunteering = Out of uniform day for the homeroom, additional recess time for the homeroom, and a pizza lunch for all!

  • Virtus-Training-Save the Date, Monday, August 22nd

    June 03, 2016

     

    Dear School Families:

     

    Background checks and Virtus training are needed for any volunteer efforts that involve children, such as coaching, scouts, lunch/recess help, field trips or any other volunteer efforts that involve children. Your help is needed as a volunteer, and if you have not completed the background checks or Virtus training, a convenient opportunity is coming up.  

     

    A Virtus class will be led by Mrs. Paula Weckesser and Mr. Dan Dunn, Incarnation Parish Virtus facilitators, and it will take place on Monday, August 22nd, training starts at 6:00p.m and typically lasts 2 1/2 hours.  It will be held in room 104 of the Incarnation Parish Center.  More dates are available, but will take place at other parishes.  Locations, dates and times may be found on the Virtus web site. 

       

    Please note that before attending, all participants must register online and complete a background check at www.virtus.org, and to qualify, all participants must arrive on time and stay the entire session.  No exceptions can be accepted. 

       

    Thanks for considering this important service for our children!

    May 16, 2016 

     

    Dear Parents,

     

    Unfortunately,  mother nature is not cooperating for our FUN DAY tomorrow, so we have decided to move it to our rain date of May 24th....A few details:

     

    1) Tomorrow, Tuesday, May 17th  the children are now expected to be in uniform.   They will have a casual day now on May 24th.  

     

    2) The new times are as follows:

    Jauch-Grunder:  8:45-9:45

    St. Phillips/Cavanaugh/AME5:   10-11

    First Grade and PME5:  1:50-3:00

     

    We do realize the First Grade has their Caesar Creek Field Trip.  They will be back in time; they should sleep well Tuesday night.   

     

    3) Volunteers:   I have sent an email to all those who are scheduled to work tomorrow to notify you of the date change.  Please confirm if you are still able to help with the new date and time.  If you didn't volunteer and would like to now, please email me at ellen.miller@incarnation.catholic.org.  We need lots more help....
