I want to extend a sincere heartfelt thank you to everyone for their trust in and support for me during my first year as principal. I am blessed to be a part of such a supportive community and parish, especially with how we have all come together during the transition of building our new church. There is no doubt that we are “Stronger Together!” I am incredibly grateful for our amazing teachers and staff. Their endless hours of planning, teaching, caring, and loving our students have indeed prepared each student for the next step in their academic journey.
Yesterday, we celebrated our last school Mass for this academic year. It was wonderful to gather together one last time in prayer to give thanks to our Lord for all of his blessings and the gift of Catholic Education. At the end of Mass, two of our 7th graders were presented with the St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Award, which includes a $1,000 scholarship if they choose to attend Seton Catholic Preparatory in the fall of 2023. Congratulations to Camden Gross and Scarlet Flanders for their commitment to excellence, as demonstrated through academics and extracurricular involvement in our SJB community.
This has been an amazing year as we celebrated our 20th Anniversary and resumed our SJB traditions as well as created a few new ones. I am looking forward to the start of another fabulous year in August.
This will be the last Bulldog Bite for the 2021-22 school year. The next issue — and the first issue of the 2022-23 school year – will be emailed on July 15 with school updates, supply lists, events, and other news. In the meantime, our school calendar is always available online for important dates. Until then, I wish you all a safe and blessed summer!
Jamie Bescak, M.Ed., Principal
