Dear SJF Families,

I can’t think of a more exciting place to be to prepare for the Christmas season than St. John Fisher! Our

classrooms and hallways have been transformed with advent wreaths, lights, snowmen, Christmas trees,

ornaments, Santa, gingerbread men and more. Together our teachers and students have created a magical

winter wonderland!

During this advent season, we continue to pray for Rone Leja along with her family and loved ones and the

members of the St. Michael’s Community. Our thoughts and prayers are also with those less fortunate than

us. Thank you to all who contributed to our gift collection for our Robbins Community. You certainly have

made a difference to many families this Christmas season.

There are many fun events taking place at SJF this Christmas season which are outlined below. Thank you

so much for your continued support of Catholic education and specifically St. John Fisher.

In unity and hope,

-Mrs. Maura Nash

Dear SJF Families, We are back into the swing of things after our well-deserved Thanksgiving break! The students have returned refreshed and ready to be challenged! Speaking of challenges, please join me in wishing our 8th graders the BEST OF LUCK this weekend as many of our students prepare to take the Catholic High School Entrance Exam this Saturday. Today we had our traditional blessing for the class of 2020 from our kindergarteners, 7th grade, junior high teachers, Fr. Ken and the SJF Leadership Team. Our kindergarteners made gift bags for the 8th graders filled with a prayer, pencils, and smarties and the 7th grade wrote letters of well-wishes to each 8th grade student. We are incredibly proud of our 8th grade students and know they will do their best on Saturday. You have sacrificed so much to get your children to this point. Thank you for all of the encouragement, love and support you have given your children, paving the way for their successful future. Thank you to our faculty and staff who have cultivated strong relationships with our students, enriching their lives and guiding them to become the best versions of themselves. We are confident that our students are well-prepared for this exam and are ready to take this important step toward their high school journey. It is with a heavy heart that we learned of the great tragedies that took place this past week in the SJF Community and the St. Michael’s Community of Orland Park. On Thanksgiving the Norris and D’Aguanno families lost their beloved son Carter. Yesterday St. Michael’s lost their technology teacher, Margaret “Rone” Leja, in an accident following their parish Christmas party. Please keep Carter and Rone and their loved ones in your prayers. In unity and hope, -Mrs. Maura Nash • Congrat

Dear SJF Families, Thanksgiving break is upon us! Our St. John Fisher Community has so much to be grateful and thankful for this season. We are grateful for the support of all of our parents and guardians as we partner together to ensure bright, happy and successful futures for our children. We are grateful for the dedication of our hardworking and professional faculty who teach our children how to be good students and people each and every day. And we are grateful for our wonderful students who grace our lives each day with their presence, creative spirits, curiosity, sense of humor and desire to be good and kind kids. As a school community we have accomplished so much this past trimester both in and out of the classroom. Please enjoy this special edition of Notes from Mrs. Nash, addressing some of the highlights of the year thus far. We have so much to be thankful for! I hope you enjoy your break with your loved ones and bask in the warm feeling that Thanksgiving brings. As always, thank you so much for your continued support of Catholic education, but specifically, St. John Fisher. In unity and hope, -Mrs. Maura Nash
