Dear SJF Families,
We have found ourselves in a very challenging and surreal moment in time. Please know that you are a constant on my mind and in my prayers. Many of us are feeling overwhelmed as we balance the responsibilities of our everyday lives and our new role as our child’s teacher. Please know that we are very conscious of this reality and are being incredibly thoughtful when creating our lessons to ensure they are both meaningful, fostering growth and academic progress, but also realistic in terms or our time frame and expectations. If you have any questions regarding lessons, activities, etc. please reach out directly to your child’s teacher. We are here for you and your children, working harder than ever, to remain connected and available to you to ensure this experience is as simple and successful as possible.
Though we must remain physically apart during this time, please know that we are still here. We are still learning. We are still praying. We are still falcons. Thank you for your continued support of Catholic education, but specifically St. John Fisher School. Stay well and take the best of care.
In unity and hope,
-Mrs. Maura Nash
Our “Falcons of the Week” are 6th graders, America Fernandez, Molly Fudacz and Samantha Fontaine. This week the girls were all nominated by Mrs. Corley for their consistent positive attitudes and helpful nature in Art Club. Mrs. Corley shared, “Sam, America, and Molly are a few of the older students who take part in Art Club. They are always setting a good example for the younger students and teaching them how to be kind and respectful. They often will go out of their way to help set up supplies and stay after club gatherings to ensure the art room is completely clean. They continuously step up each meeting to be the leaders SJF is proud to have!” Thank you, America, Molly and Sam, for setting such excellent examples for each of us. We are so fortunate that you are students at SJF. Keep “flying like falcons”, girls. You’re making a difference! READ MORE
Abby read the passage to her friend and together they worked to understand the questions. The best part of this story is that Abby took this initiative all on her own and was happy to help her classmate. When speaking with Abby’s teacher, she expressed to me that this behavior is not out of the ordinary for Abby and that she is typically the first one to volunteer to help a friend and to help out without having to be asked. We can learn so much from Abby’s everyday behavior. Thank you, Abby, for the awesome example you set for all of us each and every day. Keep “Flying like a Falcon”, you’re making a difference!
