Dear Parents,

Thank you to everyone who joined us for spring Parent-Teacher Conferences. It was a fantastic opportunity to collaborate closely with parents and teachers, ensuring that we're effectively addressing the needs of every learner. With only three months remaining in the school year, we're looking forward to packing in much learning and fun.

I'm pleased to announce the BEST news! The votes are in, and for the first time, St. John Bosco took TOP HONORS for "Best Place to Work" and placed as "Reader Recommended" for "Best Preschool & Best Private School" in the Best of Ahwatukee survey. You will find detailed results in the upcoming March 13 edition of the Ahwatukee Foothills News.

This week marked the beginning of the Lenten season, with kindergarten students leading the way in the ceremonial "Laying the Alleluia Banner to Rest." This practice is aimed at teaching our younger students about abstaining from singing or saying "Alleluia" during Lent, with the promise of its joyful return at Easter with Jesus' resurrection.

So many people played vital roles in ensuring the seamless execution of the week's festivities. I want to express my sincere appreciation to our dedicated SJB families and faculty/staff for their generous contributions of time and energy, making this week a memorable experience for our students. The collaborative efforts of staff, teachers, parents, and students throughout the week exemplify that St. John Bosco is not just a school but a close-knit community.

Dear Parents,

It is an exhilarating moment for our school and parish community as we eagerly anticipate the grand opening of our new St. Benedict Catholic Church. Today marked a significant milestone as we gathered for the final Mass in our school's multipurpose room. A sense of unity and anticipation filled the air as we bid farewell to the familiar setting that has served as our temporary worship space. The genuine excitement lies in the upcoming ceremony and dedication Mass scheduled for Saturday evening at 5:00, where we will officially consecrate and celebrate the new church.
