Lunch Program Update

Dear SJS Catholic School Community,

 

You might have noticed the billboards we have placed in the neighborhood to help spread the word about SJS. We have one on the corner of 120thand Fort St, and another off of 90thand Maple.  We want to get the word out about our fine school, but the billboards I think also can build pride in the school. “That’s my school, it’s cool to see it represented prominently in the neighborhood.” But we of course still appreciate your help in sharing about SJS to your friends and neighbors.  Yard signs are available.  And, don’t forget you can earn $100 off your tuition next year if you refer a family who enrolls and remains next school year.

 

I hope you all have a wonderful St. Patrick’s Day on Sunday.  One of the blessings of our Catholic faith is the role of saints. The example that saints provide can be a useful teaching tool for us Catholic educators, and parents.  And their intercession for our prayers is an important aspect of our faith.  St. Patrick’s Day has become, among other things, a celebration of all things Irish.  But the foundation of the day is the saint himself.  And what a story St. Patrick provides.  He was captured as a boy and taken as a slave to Ireland.  He escaped and received a message from God in a dream to become a priest and return to Ireland and spread the Good News. And what a success he was!  He battled against the polytheist druids and made Ireland a predominantly Catholic place.  Ireland is a country with a history full of saints.  If you enjoy the stories of saints a few you may find interesting would be St. Oliver Plunkett, St. Columba, St. Kevin, and St. Brigid. St. Patrick truly does show the power that one believer can have.   

 

The Archdiocese is planning a big event this summer called Archomaha Unite.  It is designed to be a day to bring the entire archdiocese together, to build community, share the faith, and have events for all ages. More info can be found in the Virtual Backpack and also at, https://unite.archomaha.org/.  Registration is required and it is a free event for all.  

 

Report cards are coming home today for the 3rdquarter.  It’s exciting to progress into the last quarter of the year.  Please use those grades as a foundation for some goals for your student.  We encourage the students to create academic goals (centered on grades and academic performance), but also goals for behavior, and even spiritual goals.  This could be an interesting conversation with your students as you help them create 4thquarter goals in the three areas.  And if you have questions or concerns it is always best to communicate first with our fine teachers.  They are always interested and willing to help.  

 

One of the greatest gifts you can give your children is an understanding of the value of respect. As adults when we look back at our most powerful good role models, those that show respect stand out.  Too often we hear stories of people who do not show respect for others.  Certainly Jesus provides the most powerful model of respect for us.  We can recall countless stories from the Bible of Jesus demonstrating respect both for himself and all others.  The sinner, the leper, the poor—all were treated with complete respect by Jesus.  The best way to teach a student to respect is by modeling it.  Educators are keenly aware that every word and action is observed by your child.  So it is important that we objectively view our own behavior to ensure it provides the kind of example we wish to set.  Thanks for all you do.

 

Peace,

 

William Kelly

Principal
