Dear SJF Families,
We did it! We successfully stayed open for in-person learning for the ENTIRE SCHOOL YEAR during a worldwide pandemic. I am going to be honest, part of me didn’t think this would be possible. Most days, especially during the first 7 months of the school year, we operated as if it would be our last day in school. The reality is we never knew what the next day would bring. We tried to take solace in that we had a plan in place and we would act accordingly depending upon what came our way. I applaud our community. The reason behind our success is that we all worked together as a team. Nothing about this school year was easy. But it was worth it and most importantly, our kids are better off because of it!
I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of the parents and guardians of our Falcons. There is not a more important, frustrating, challenging and rewarding job than being a good parent. And you are exceptional. You love your children unconditionally. You were at school at the drop of a hat to take home your sick child (and all of their siblings).

We are encouraging our school community to “SOAR above” things that might bring us down, not allowing us to be our best selves. 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 fifth grader, Ava Kintz.
As many of you are aware, Ms. Dunlavy, our 5th grade ELA teacher was recently diagnosed with Breast Cancer. This shocking news was obviously so difficult to digest not only for Ms. Dunlavy, but for all of those who love her. Learning of this news really impacted her students. As a group, the fifth graders wanted to show their sign of love and support. One idea that the group of students had was to dye a section of their hair pink as an outward symbol of solidarity and support. This of course goes against the dress code policy in our student handbook. However, Ava stepped up as the leader of the group and took the time to write me a very impressive persuasive letter, requesting this temporary change in our handbook policy for this important cause. After...
