Dear Parents,

Can you believe we have completed our 2nd Trimester? Report cards will be emailed on Tuesday, February 15, and conferences will take place February 16, 17, and 18. Please note early dismissal (12:30 PM) on all three days to allow time for teachers and parents to conference. Please click the following link(s) to schedule your conference(s): Preschool K - 8th

We have many exciting things on the horizon! First up is our annual Father-Daughter Dance Saturday (tomorrow!) at 6:30 PM hosted by our incredible Dads’ Club. If you haven’t purchased your tickets yet, now is the time! Click here: Father-Daughter Dance Tickets

Secondly, I would like to announce that starting next school year we will have a NEW before- and after-school program called Innovation Learning. Innovation Learning is a full-service program that offers academic support by a certified teacher, fitness, play, and STEM learning. The hours will be Monday through Thursday 6:30-7:30am, and 3:00-6:00pm; Fridays 6:30-7:30am and 12:30-6:00 PM. Innovation Learning will also offer childcare coverage for days when school is not in session such as Labor Day or Spring Break. More information about a possible summer offering will be coming soon!

We are also excited to share that the Duke University Softball Team visited our campus yesterday and utilized our newly renovated softball field for their practice. The word got out that this “small Catholic school in Phoenix” has an awesome field. Campus Ambassadors welcomed them to our campus and enjoyed watching them practice. It was a thrilling experience for our aspiring athletes and a beautiful way to spend the afternoon. We owe a great deal of gratitude to SJB parent Mrs. Teri Root for many months of hard work renovating our field and arranging for Duke’s practice while in town for a tournament at ASU.

Lastly, although we believe St. John Bosco is an outstanding Catholic school, even the most exceptional schools and organizations have room for growth and improvement. We value honest feedback from our parents, faculty, staff, and students regarding their experience at St. John Bosco so I kindly ask all parents to take a few minutes to fill out this Parent Survey by March 1. Faculty and staff will be emailed a separate survey Monday, and kindergarten - 8th-grade students will be given the student survey in class next week. 

We are truly grateful for your time to share your thoughts.

Joyful blessings,
Jamie Bescak, Principal
