Just over a week ago, one of our 5th grade students, Will Clift, was diagnosed with Hodgkin's Lymphoma.  Will is the son of Megan and Benton Clift, as well as the big brother to Jenna (2nd grade) and Benton (4-year-old preschool at Crossroads School).  Will received his first chemo treatment last Friday.  He is now resting at home.  Please continue to pray for safe travels for this family as they continue to Children's for doctor appointments as chemo treatments.  On Friday, February 16, 2018, the school held an out of uniform day to purchase an iPad for Will.  The response was overwhelming.  We collected over $1,000 toward the iPad purchase and the purchase of gift cards for the family to use as needed.  Will was able to use his new iPad to Facetime the school during the pep rally on Friday.  Each student received from the Boosters Club a purple flex band in recognition of Hodgkin's Lymphoma.  The kids may wear their bands with the school uniform.  Mr. and Mrs. Clift have asked that we extend our appreciation to everyone, especially St. Philip families for the love, prayers and support extended to Will and the family.  Along with the Clift's we ask that you continue to pray for Will and his family during this difficult time.

SUBSTITUTE TEACHERS:  Have you ever considered working with children?  Would you consider this if you knew that you would be paid for the day?  I am talking 1-2 days at a time, in most cases, and the day is already planned.  St. Philip School is in need of substitute teachers to build our call list.  You must be VIRTUS trained and in compliance with the diocesan safe environment regulations.  If you are interested, please call Mrs. Brewer, school principal, at 441-3423 ext. 4 or email at for more information.

VIRTUS-SAFE ENVIRONMENT:     To volunteer at St. Philip Parish in any way that involves children, any adult must be in compliance with VIRTUS.  You must attend a VIRTUS training session, read and sign a Policies and Procedures statement, and complete a background check application.  This process (class attendance and background check) will take a month or more to complete.  Register at, at the Child and Youth Protection site or find another class to attend.  Classes are available around the diocese throughout the year.  Click on the dates and times of training.  Follow the directions at that point.  After attending the 3-hour training, you will be assigned monthly bulletins.  Bulletins are placed on the accounts on the first Sunday of the month, after 6:00 PM.  To stay in compliance, process each bulletin within 30 days.  If you do not complete your bulletin in 30 days, you will be suspended and will need to wait for the quarterly suspension release.  

VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES: St. Philip School is always in need of volunteers.  Remember, you must be VIRTUS trained and in compliance with all Diocesan Safe Environment guidelines.  We need your help in these areas: library, school office, cafeteria helper (contact Mrs. Steelman, Cafeteria Manager), teacher’s aides: help out with weekly skills assessment, computer class, and gym class.  Mrs. Steelman needs volunteers immediately in the cafeteria. Call or email me for information (441-3423 ext. 4 or

SCHOOL SUPPORT: Many easy ways to support the school would be to collect Box-tops, Labels for Education, Sunny D labels, Tyson Food product labels, County Market receipts, and recycle aluminum cans.  All of these items will benefit St. Philip School.  Send your labels/tabs/receipts into the office and we will turn them into money.  Bonus Box-tops are on many products and offered by stores like Meijers as part of Back-to-School. Look for information at your local grocery store.  ALL BOX-TOPS HAVE AN EXPIRATION DATE, including Bonus Box-Tops.  Please trim your Box-tops and labels.  We must pay postage to mail these items into the company. Grocery receipts, paper and aluminum will be processed in bulk and cashed in at the specific facility throughout the school year.
