Dear Parents/Guardians,

May the loving Peace of Christ be with you

We hope your summer expectations and wishes were fulfilled. Now that September has arrived, we are happy that your children have returned to us ready to grow spiritually, intellectually and physically.

During the summer, our school’s desks were changed to new trapezoid desks and chairs, which enable our students to learn collaboratively, perform stem lessons and inquire-based projects. The lights were replaced in every room with LED lighting. This creates a much more productive atmosphere.

As always, transforming the appearance of the school is a tremendous help but you dear parents, are the catalyst for your child/children’s success. Praying daily with your child, studying with your child and having dinner together are all intricate parts of a happy loving home. Children thrive on this lifestyle.

Please know that we, the SsJA Family, are dedicated followers of Christ who care for the welfare and academic excellence of each student. We thank God for each and everyone of them.

We would like to welcome Ms. K. Burpoe to Grade K, Ms. G. Byron to Grade 2, Mr. N. Joyce to Grades 7&8. Mr. Schoolfield has returned to his position as Assistant Principal. We are blessed. Mr. Corso is now the Principal of St. Camillus in the Rockaways.

On September 13, 2018 at 6:30 PM, Grades 1 to 8 parents will have the opportunity to meet your child’s teacher. The new Parent/Student Handbook will be discussed with you along with guidelines for this year. It is mandatory that one parent/family member attend the meeting.

With God’s help we will work together to make 2018-19 a year that embraces achievement on all levels.

Sincerely in Christ,

Mrs. Linda Freebes, Principal

We mourn the passing of our devoted Advisory Board member, Patricia R. Cooper and Mrs. Glover’s beloved son, Vashon Glover. May they rest in peace, O Lord.
