Lunch Program Update

I hope you all have a wonderful St. Patrick’s Day.  One of the blessings of our Catholic faith is the role of saints. The example that saints provide can be a powerful teaching tool for us Catholic educators.  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.  

As you make your summer plans there are a few pieces of information that you may find helpful.  Our first day of school for 2017-18 will be tentatively planned for August 16th for K-8, and the 21st for PreK/Pre school.  School will be dismissed early the 16th-18th.  Welcome Night will be the 15th and Curriculum Night is the 29th of August. 

Thank you for the overwhelming support shown for the parent participation program for next school year.  The overall point of the program is to get more parents involved in the school; sometimes a little encouragement is all that is needed.  And there are additional benefits too which are significant: lowered costs, examples of service for students, parents making new connections, etc. 

At SJS we understand that technology is an important tool in student engagement and preparation for high school.  As such, we have a tech plan in place to ensure we are doing our best for the students.   I want to thank the Goldsmith family for their recent generous donation which will allow us to purchase an additional set of Ipads for student use.  Having this additional set will help the teachers use small groups, and also provide additional challenge and help to those who students need it.  If you would also like to contribute a donation feel free to contact the office.  And, there are plans in place to replace the lab in the library with a Chromebook environment that will make research and collaboration easier for staff and student. 

I’m excited for a new event happening next Friday, Forgiveness Friday!  God has given us a great gift in His loving mercy.  And as Catholics we are to forgive others too.  We want this message to be sent to all our students, so we will be holding a special ceremony in the church on the 24th at 9:15 with music and discussion about forgiveness.  All are welcome to attend.   Thanks for all you do.

 

                                                                                                Peace,

 

                                                                                                William Kelly
