Lunch Program Update

Dear SJS Catholic School Community,      

 

Welcome back to school, SJS!  There is much to be excited about at SJS this year!  We welcomed 92 new K-8 students this year, up from 60 the year before.  We have begun The Genius Hour to foster creativity and original thought.  We have a full-day Pre-k option for families, it currently is full.  Our staff will be using the STAR 360 program to help benchmark and monitor progress.  We added a leveled literacy library with over 2,500 books for teacher and student use.  And we also added a new uniform shirt, and new technology.  So the future is bright indeed.

 

A special welcome goes to all of our new families.  It can be difficult to be new so if questions arise please contact the school office.  The number one reason new families give for choosing our school is that they heard good things about it from a family or friend.  So thank you to everyone who has shared all the benefits of a SJS education. 

 

We are looking forward to Curriculum Night on the 29th, starting at 6:30 in the church.  There is always a sense of excitement in that meeting about the start of a new school year.  New possibilities are fun!  I am confident the time spent listening to the teacher presentations will be helpful as the year progresses.  This meeting is vital to understanding how the teachers run their rooms and the expectations that are present, thus the meeting is mandatory for parents. 

 

One of the points that I will make at the meeting will be that parent participation and volunteering is vital for the success of our school.  We started a mandatory parent participation program this year, and thus far the results have been tremendous.  The program has several important benefits: it keeps costs low, it helps students see that volunteering for Church and school is a part of adult life, and it fosters a sense of community.  Simply put, parents plus school make a winning team.  If you ever did not feel welcome in the past, please accept this invitation to become involved in your child’s education. 

 

Another point to consider at the start of a new year is what to do when a question arises.  If ever a question/issue arises about the classroom it is always best to start by talking to the teacher.  They have the first-hand knowledge needed to best answer your questions.  They know their procedures and expectations.  I am confident you will find our staff to be professional and friendly.  If you ever need my help feel free to call, stop in, or send me an email.  Support for teacher and school decisions is so very important.  If students know that parents will stand behind the decision of the teacher, great progress can be made in changing habits or behaviors. Consequences at home for behaviors at school can make for an impact on performance. 

 

                Thank you for all you do for our school.  I am confident this is going to be a successful year.  Our academics are excellent, our expectations remain high, and our faith is strong.  I look forward to seeing you at Curriculum Night.
