Dear SJF Families,
We have made it to the last week of the second trimester. This weekend is a great opportunity for our students to catch up on any late or missing assignments and go the extra mile to finish up strong! The end of the marking period often consists of unit assessments. Please take the time to check-in with your child(ren) this weekend to ensure he/she/they put their best foot forward these last few days of trimester 2. Our Falcons are so bright and we want to ensure their grades are an accurate reflection of their knowledge and effort.

Stay tuned for a separate invitation to our live virtual meeting at the beginning of next week. We hope you can join us! Thank you for your continued investment and commitment to St. John Fisher...

Franki’s teachers overwhelmingly nominated her to be the Falcon of the Week.

She is kind, thoughtful, gentle, funny and humble. Franki quietly helps others. She is very intuitive and often can tell when one of her friends or classmates is sad. She makes every effort to lift the spirits of those around her and tries to contribute to making her classmates happy and her classroom a fun and welcoming place to be. Because of COVID, there are a lot of “extras” that our teachers have to do this year including more frequent disinfecting of desks, tables, etc. Franki is always offering to assist her teachers with this task among many...
