Dear SJF Families,
Thank you so much for your generosity and support of the Chicago Police Memorial’s Get Behind the Vest Program! This Sunday is Alderman Matt O’Shea’s Pancake Breakfast in Kane Hall from 8-12. All proceeds from the breakfast will go directly to the Get Behind the Vest Program. St. John Fisher is home to 130 children of Chicago Police Officers and we are incredibly proud of these men and women and all of the first-responders in our school community who selflessly put their lives on the line each and every day. Thank you for your unbelievable service to our community and our city and for being awesome role models for all of us to strive to emulate.
Please join us as we cheer on our Falcon Volleyball and Basketball Teams this weekend as they begin their play-off competitions. May they have fun, compete with sportsmanship and class and represent our school well! Thank you to all of the parents who have volunteered countless hours during the season coordinating, coaching, working the door and concession stands, cheering on our teams and driving our athletes to and from games. Our athletic programs would not be successful without all of you!
This week our 2 nd graders made their First Reconciliation....
Our “Falcon of the Week” is Sam Matlob. Sam is a very talented artist and is always willing to use her talents and creative gifts to beautify our school. Sam was incredibly instrumental in creating our 2020 8th Grade Confirmation banner which is currently displayed in church. Sam has also assisted with many kindness collages and murals throughout the school. Sam is the total embodiment of kind and selfless deeds. Sam is kind to everyone, incredibly inclusive, positive and always willing to help anyone at any time regardless of the task. Thank you, Sam, for sharing your smile, kindness and artistic talents with our school. You make SJF a more beautiful place by being in it! You inspire us all to always put others first, take things in stride, be kind and positive no matter what and to be generous with our time and talents. Keep “Flying like a Falcon, Sam”, 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!
