Dear Parents,

We had a busy week of DIBELS and MAP testing! We will continue with make-up testing next week for students absent this week. We want to make sure everyone gets their chance to shine and show how much they have grown academically so far this school year.

In fact, the new year is bringing many exciting things our way!

  • A new AC/filtration system was installed in the MPR over Christmas break.
  • Thanks to our Dads' Club, our school security system was updated.
  • New security cameras will be installed within the next 2 months thanks to the funds raised from Running with Rosco and the
  • Together Let us Go Forth Diocesan campaign. Over 25 security cameras will be installed on the inside and outside perimeter of our campus, making our campus even more secure.
  • Thanks to the funds raised at last year’s virtual SJB Gala, six Promethean boards will be installed in Kindergarten, 1st-, and 2nd-grade classrooms in the next month.
  • We recently received an Emergency Connectivity Fund (ECF) Grant that will provide Chromebooks for the entire student body. We should receive these new Chromebooks within the next month.

I am also extremely happy to announce that I hired Mr. Michael Cortez as our new full-time school counselor. Mr. Cortez comes to us with over 6 years of counseling experience and a ton of energy! Mr. Cortez will join us Monday, Jan. 24. Please help me welcome him to our St. John Bosco family.

Next, we are gearing up for re-enrollment for existing families. We want to make sure you will be able to secure enrollment for your children before Open Enrollment begins for new families. Therefore, re-enrollment for our CURRENT families will take place one week earlier than last year — on January 24th. See details later in this newsletter under "Save The Date."

Finally, the 2022-2023 Tuition Schedule has been approved and will provide compensation for our fabulous teachers and maintain our beautiful, safe campus with an increase of less than $25/month. This increase will allow us to continue to provide a quality Catholic Education for all learners. I want to sincerely thank you all for your love and support of our teachers, staff, nurse, pastor, and administration. I look forward to all the wonderful things to come over the next 20 years!

Joyful blessings,
Jamie Bescak, Principal
