I hope everyone had a good opportunity to enjoy the Thanksgiving holiday and break. I enjoyed talking with our SJF parents this past week during conferences. I am so grateful for the continued support of our Jr. High parents. I'm confident that as parents and teachers work together, our students will remain motivated, accountable, and successful.
Our first trimester ends this Monday, November 30th. Report cards will be distributed in school on Thursday, December 3rd. Please encourage our students to give their best efforts in their classes, at all times.

This chapter focuses on our responsibility to reach out to all people, especially to those who are less fortunate than we, demonstrating love, compassion, and mercy. We will also be discussing the corporal and spiritual works of mercy.
