Dear SJF Families,
I hope you were able to view SJF’s beautiful May Crowning Ceremony lead and organized by our wonderful 8 th graders, Fr. Ken, Dr. Chermak, Ms. Browne, Mrs. Condon and Mrs. G. We are so grateful for all of our opportunities to celebrate and share in our faith experiences together. I would like to take this opportunity to thank our truly incredible and talented Director of Religious Education, Dr. Elena Chermak. Last week’s First Holy Communion was spectacular. Dr. Chermak had many obstacles to work around during this COVID year. We are thankful for her creativity, grace, dedication and commitment to making every celebration and mass feel special and unique every single time. We are blessed and fortunate to have Dr. Chermak at our school and parish!
As this week is Teacher Appreciation Week, I would also like to give a “shout-out” to our amazing faculty. It is because of this talented and dedicated group that our school is so successful and our children are prepared for their futures. We thank our teachers for loving their students as if they were their own and for going above and beyond each year, but especially during this unprecedented time. Quite simply, they are the best! We also pause to recognize and appreciate...

We are on a school-wide crusade to “Fly Like a Falcon”, lifting one another up, celebrating the positive interactions and kind behavior that our students and staff demonstrate each and every day. This week we recognize third grader, Holly Mueller.
The FSA has been organizing COVID-safe fundraisers, like the S & T vouchers, throughout the year to benefit our school in different ways. With the money raised from the most recent voucher incentive, the FSA generously and thoughtfully donated new recess equipment for every grade! So, thank you for your support of this program! Obviously, going outside is a real treat and the highlight of the day as the kids can take a mask break and run around after having to remain in the same seats all day. During recess last week, one of the dodge balls that Holly was playing with popped. Holly felt so sad about the new equipment breaking on her watch that she used her own allowance money to replace it. Holly also called a member of the FSA to report the accident...
