Congratulations are in order to our 2nd Graders who won the Penny Wars this year! They will receive a free dress day on March 1st for their efforts. All donations will benefit our deserving orphans at Nuestros Pequeños Hermanos, who sincerely appreciate the generosity of our entire community during Catholic Schools Week.
A few junior high students are also deserving of recognition this week. Seventh-grader Olivia Vaughan placed 2nd out of 29 contestants in the Maricopa County Regional Spelling Bee and will advance to Arizona State Bee March 19th. We are all so proud of Olivia – one of only four SJB students who have made it to state finals – and will keep her in our prayers for continued success.
The team of Renee Mendez and Patricio Arguello placed 1st in our School Science Fair with their project entitled “Isopods: Repugnant or Indispensable" Renee and Patricio will be representing SJB in the Diocesan Science Fair on February 28th.
St. John Bosco Catholic School figured prominently in this year’s Best of Ahwatukee contest. Incredible librarian and teacher extraordinaire Theresa Harvey placed 2nd in the category of Best Middle-School Teacher in Ahwatukee! Now the whole city knows what we’ve known for 20 years.
SJB Preschool was (again!) voted Best Preschool in Ahwatukee! And SJB as a whole placed 2nd as Best Private School in Ahwatukee. Thank you all for voting and supporting our beloved school.
Lastly, don’t forget to re-enroll your children for the 2022-23 school year by Monday, February 28th so they receive a free dress day and YOU receive a discount!
