Dear Parents,

Today, we celebrated our annual Recognition Mass to honor students who have recently received the sacraments of First Holy Communion and Confirmation at their parishes. These students, primarily third graders but also from other grades, led our school Mass with great humility and reverence, having been conferred these Sacraments of Initiation by our own Fr. James.

I want to express my gratitude to Miss Laura Jean Curley, Miss Laura Van House, and Mrs. Melissa Acosta for their dedication to preparing each student for these holy sacraments and laying a strong foundation for their faith journey. And a special thank you to our second-grade mothers for organizing and hosting a wonderful reception after the Mass.

Dear Parents,

Today the eighth-grade students of Saint John Bosco Catholic School concluded their journey with us with their final All-School Mass and Consecration to Blessed Mary. It was an incredibly moving and fitting end to their time at SJB. Following the ceremony, the entire student body gathered in the courtyard to enthusiastically applaud the eighth graders as they exited the school gates for the last time for our annual "clap-out" tradition.

Dear Parents,

As we wrap up a bustling week of the Iowa assessments, I extend my gratitude to each of you for your support. I also want to express our appreciation to our PTO for their kind contributions of nutritious snacks, which helped sustain our students as they diligently tackled the assessments. A heartfelt thank you goes out to Rama Salloum and Wanda Wiscombe for their efforts in organizing and distributing these snacks to each homeroom.

I'm immensely proud of all our students for their hard work and dedication throughout this testing period. For those who were absent, rest assured they will have the opportunity to make up any missed sections. Our goal is to ensure that all students in grades 1st through 8th complete all sections of the Iowa assessments.
