Dear SJF Families,
Well, we are on our way to being back in the groove of our school routine and it feels so good! Thank you to everyone for all of your support during this time. Your donations, kind and supportive e-mails, phone calls and notes mean the world to our staff. We are just so grateful for your unconditional loyalty and support of our great school! We really are in this together and together we are doing great things. I cannot say enough what a privilege it is to be back in school for in-person learning. Thank you for your partnership and for reminding your children the necessity of wearing a mask at all times on our school campus, consistently washing their hands, and keeping social distance.
Please join me in praying for our patient and resilient third grade class who will be making their First Holy Communion this weekend. As we pray for our First Communicants may we all reflect on ways we can be more like Jesus and continue to cultivate a loving, just and peaceful world. May God bless these wonderful children this weekend and always.
Thank you for your commitment to Catholic education, but specifically St. John Fisher.
In unity and hope,
-Mrs. Maura Nash
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!
