Dear Parents,

Saturday’s Harvest Fest and Trunk-or-Treat was a fantastic evening of fun and community-building! The costumes were exceptionally creative, and the lip sync competition and band were AMAZING. This annual event is made possible only by the diligent, selfless effort of our parent and student volunteers. Thank you to everyone who put in time and monitored the various stations of the festive grounds. Special thanks to our PTO Harvest coordinators, Erica Seidel and Julie Morris, and PTO committee members. This incredible team worked countless hours planning and organizing the event for the sheer joy of building school community.

Today is the official end of the 1st trimester and Parent-Teacher Conferences are next week. Make sure you have signed up! See below for more details. 

We are gearing up for our accreditation visit and November Open House. A team of Phoenix Catholic school administrators and teachers led by Linda Norman, Superintendent of the Santa Rosa (California) Diocese will be visiting our campus on November 9, 10, and 11. They will be attending morning prayer, visiting classrooms, and consulting students, parents, and faculty to confirm that St. John Bosco is meeting and/or exceeding the WCEA Accreditation standards. 

At the end of the week on Friday, November 11, we will celebrate Veterans Day with our annual flag ceremony and Mass. After Mass, our School Board members and Campus Ambassadors will give tours to prospective families. 

Many of our NEW 2022-23 school year families have been referred to SJB by several of you! Thank you to the following families for sharing your experience at St. John Bosco Catholic School:

  • The Arrietta family was referred by Mindy Chau Nguyen 
  • The Fierros Matchinsky family was referred by the O'Neal family
  • Aiden and Justin Biggs were referred by Jamie Biggs
  • Elijah Durben was referred by the Del Sol family
  • Lilah Lough and Hadley Willis were referred by Marianne Biegler 
  • Jorge Madrigal Martinez was referred by Melissa Rivas
  • Ella Thursby was referred by Pam Boggs
  • Jorge Rodriguez was referred by the Garayzar family

The referring families will receive $100 credit towards their child’s tuition for each family they referred and who enrolled for this school year. I encourage everyone to spread the news about what our school has to offer. We will continue to offer credit towards tuition for referrals! 

Joyful Blessings,
Jamie Bescak, M.Ed., Principal
