This report offers a glimpse into your child's performance during the initial six weeks of the school year. It also serves as a reminder that there are approximately six more weeks available for students and parents to enhance or sustain their current grades before the grading period concludes and report cards are distributed on Tuesday, November 7.READ MORE

Together we joined in prayer and reflection honoring the memory of those who lost their lives on that fateful day.READ MORE

We would kindly appreciate everyone following the parking lot rules to ensure the safety of our community and facilitate traffic flow. Thank you for using patience and care as you navigate through the parking lot each day. Please do not drop your children off in the north parking lot. According to our Parent/Student Handbook, students must be walked to the front gate or classroom to ensure their safe arrival to the school grounds. If you are in a hurry to get to and from school, consider utilizing our efficient valet carpool service.READ MORE
Last week was bustling with students settling into their daily routines of centers, lessons, group projects, and homework. It's no surprise that they likely return home quite tired and hungry after putting in so much effort. As I go through my routine visits to classrooms (definitely the highlight of my day!), I witness bright smiles, the blossoming of friendships, and the sounds of joyful laughter. It's evident that these children are enjoying their time at school.READ MORE
I want to express my sincere gratitude to Daniel Aguilar, affectionately known as "Mr. Daniel," for his dedicated years of service as the custodian at St. John Bosco Catholic School.

As he embarks on new journeys, his presence will be greatly missed, and we wish him all the best in his future endeavors.READ MORE

Throughout the past week, we have experienced a profound sense of faith, togetherness, and enthusiasm as we make final preparations for the upcoming 2023-2024 school year. Beginning with morning Mass celebrated by our own Fr. James, our dedicated faculty and staff participated in a full-day, interactive religious retreat at Corpus Christi Church led by Sr. Mary Beverly of the Diocese of Phoenix. The rest of the week was jam-packed with various trainings including a thorough review of school guidelines, updated technology features, comprehensive instruction in the NEW English Language Arts curriculum, sessions in Teach for Transformation (DWP), and updated school safety protocol. On top of all that, teachers have been diligently setting up their classrooms in anticipation of Monday’s big event!READ MORE
