Posted on Jun 05, 2020
Dear SJF Families,
Well, we did it! We survived E-Learning and we had a strong finish to the school year. I am so proud of our community. As I have said many times throughout this experience, I am in awe as to how parents, students and teachers alike were able to pivot during this unpredictable and shocking time. We were all pushed outside of our comfort zones. Rather than throwing in the towel, we learned new skills and discovered talents we didn’t know we had. These new characteristics will benefit us in our future, both in and out of the classroom. Thank you for staying the course and sticking with us during this surreal moment in time. We are so grateful for your partnership and commitment to SJF!
Another significant life experience and event that is taking place in our world currently are demonstrations and riots across the country in response to the death of George Floyd. Our world can be incredibly scary and tumultuous sometimes. We can do our part in making the world a better place, by listening to one another and treating everyone with the respect and dignity that they deserve. We must be understanding, empathetic and kind to others and spread love and positivity into the world. We teach our children these morals in our homes at a very young age and they are fostered and strengthened at SJF. Being a member of the SJF community means something. We serve others and put others first before ourselves. We CAN and WE MUST make our world a better place.
My heart is full of gratitude for each of you as this school year comes to a close. We have worked hard and stayed the course all the way until the end. We all need a break, no doubt, but I am so proud of all we have accomplished. We stuck together. We never stopped learning. We never stopped praying. We remained true to our falcon roots!
Thank you for your continued support of St. John Fisher School. Stay well. Stay safe. Take the best of care. Happy Summer!
In unity and hope,
-Mrs. Maura Nash
