Dear Parents of the Class of 2024,

Although the summer is winding down, we here at Priory are actively preparing for the start of your sons’ high school careers. As part of that preparation, we have partnered with other schools in the St. Louis Archdiocese in order to develop innovative ways to promote healthy living. The result of this partnership is the St. Louis Catholic Secondary Schools Coalition.

The Coalition is sponsoring a series of informational meetings for parents in August of 2020. These meetings explore issues facing teens, and they provide parents with tools to help their children make good decisions.  West County Psychological Associates will lead these sessions.

Each freshman should have at least one parent attend one of these parent-only sessions. Normally, these meetings are held in churches and schools around the Archdiocese. This year, due to concerns for health and safety, the parent presentations will be held live online, on the Zoom Webinar format, with a recorded version available for parents without high speed internet availability.

All sessions are similar and will be held on the dates and times listed with the registration links at the end of this letter. Please choose a date and time that best suits your schedule. All webinars start promptly at 7 p.m. and are done at approximately 8:15 p.m., with the exception of one daytime webinar available at 1 p.m. on Aug. 13. 

To make the reservation, simply use the link address for the date and time you prefer.  Be sure to RSVP soon, as thousands of parents will be attending these sessions, and certain dates/times may fill up quickly.  Attendance will be recorded at each webinar.

We believe the information from this meeting is important to the well-being of all students, so please make attendance a priority.  Following the webinar, attendees will receive a message with handouts and an evaluation form that they can complete. 

Thank you for your cooperation and assistance.

Sincerely,

Mike Nickolai
Assistant Head of School for Human and Spiritual Formation
