Dear SJF Families,
Well, we did it! We survived E-Learning and we had a strong finish to the school year. I am so proud of our community. As I have said many times throughout this experience, I am in awe as to how parents, students and teachers alike were able to pivot during this unpredictable and shocking time. We were all pushed outside of our comfort zones. Rather than throwing in the towel, we learned new skills and discovered talents we didn’t know we had. These new characteristics will benefit us in our future, both in and out of the classroom. Thank you for staying the course and sticking with us during this surreal moment in time. We are so grateful for your partnership and commitment to SJF!
Another significant life experience and event that is taking place in our world currently are demonstrations and riots across the country in response to the death of George Floyd. Our world can be incredibly scary and tumultuous sometimes. We can do our part in making the world a better place, by listening to one another and treating everyone with the respect and dignity that they deserve. We must be understanding, empathetic and kind to others and spread love and positivity into the world. We teach our children these morals in our homes at a very young age and...
The pandemic that we are experiencing has made it challenging for all of us to continue to remain the best version of ourselves. Yesterday, our 2nd graders were supposed to make their First Holy Communion. This important sacrament was one that our students and teachers have been preparing for all year. We are saddened by the many special events that have been cancelled or postponed due to the coronavirus. However, our 2nd grade teachers went above and beyond yesterday, putting together a small package consisting of a note, prayer card, rosary and a balloon. Our awesome Women’s Club also lent a hand by donating cross cookies to make this package extra special. A huge thanks to them and the many staff and faculty members who helped deliver these surprises! Thank you again to the 2nd grade team for remembering our students and making them feel special during this time. Don’t worry 2nd graders, your Communion in the fall will be better than ever! ”Keep flying like falcons, Mrs. Kellam, Mrs. Ade and Mrs. Briseno. 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!
