Dear SJF Families,
Even though this was a three-day week, our Falcons were very productive! As Catholics, we began the solemn season of Lent. We helped prepare the kids for Lent by discussing that during this time we pray, give up things, and do good deeds for others in order to prepare for the great celebration of Jesus’ resurrection at Easter! Though there are still mountains of snow on the ground, Spring is on the horizon!
I wanted to give a huge shout-out to our spectacular seventh graders who led our school during our live-streamed Ash Wednesday Mass. Thank you also to Dr. Chermak, Mrs. G. and our junior high faculty for helping the students prepare for this important mass. We also celebrated our 100thish day of school this week. We have successfully remained open for in-person learning for 100 days. That is a feat in itself. Our students are 100 days smarter and 100 days brighter and I am so proud of all they accomplish together each day.
We have not lost sight of the necessity of planning for our bright future. Together, with the School Advisory Board along with your partnership and commitment, we continue to work toward the ambitious goals that we identified and set in our 5-year Strategic Plan. On Tuesday, March 9th, we invite you to listen in at our Virtual School Advisory Board Meeting, as we share the remarkable progress we have made. Please see more information below. Incredible things are happening at St. John Fisher School! Now is a great time to be a Falcon and to join our family! Thank you for choosing Catholic education, but specifically St. John Fisher.
In unity and hope,
-Mrs. Maura Nash
