Dear SJF Families,
The month of May is proving to be incredibly busy, featuring a whirlwind of activities and emotions! There is a great deal of excitement throughout the building as we anticipate warm weather (finally!) and the end of the year celebratory events recognizing the many accomplishments and transitions into our next chapter at SJF. As we move forward, I have much to be grateful for and many exciting announcements to share.
Thank you so much to our Reading Buddies! We are blessed at St. John Fisher to have a group of ladies who volunteer their time as Reading Buddies every Monday afternoon. The Reading Buddy program pairs a first- or second-grader who needs additional reading support with a caring, supportive adult who focuses solely on that child for one half-hour, reading and working on phonics skills. A special thank you to our volunteers: Mrs. Maureen Connolly, Mrs. Debby Dillon, Mrs. Kathy Guinane, Sr. Jean McGrath, and Mrs. Mary Nitsche for their energy, time and kindness!
While we are on the topic of reading, I would like to announce that we have hired Ms. Mary Schiavone as our FULL-TIME reading specialist for next year! Many of you may already know Ms. Schiavone. She has been a dedicated and dynamic third grade teacher at SJF for the past 7 years...

Dear SJF Families,
My favorite memory from Fisher was winning the Gold Ball for basketball. Our team had said from the first day of practice in sixth grade that winning that championship was our ultimate end goal. I will never forget the feeling when the buzzer went off in that game and we had finally won, but more so I will always remember the fun we had as a team off of the court.
