It was wonderful to see everyone back on campus this week! It was very quiet during Spring Break as the security crew installed over 30 new security cameras. This enhancement was funded by proceeds from this year's Running with Rosco event hosted by Cindy Casaus and our fabulous PTO, as well as the “Together Let Us Go Forth” Diocesan Capital Campaign.
I enjoyed celebrating St. Patrick’s Day with our students this year! How fun to see so many smiling faces entering the gate Thursday morning proudly wearing green and the sea of green in the MPR during lunch. I also heard that some sneaky leprechauns were causing mischief around campus. Unfortunately, our preschoolers and kindergarteners were unsuccessful in trapping them with their incredibly creative traps. We'll get 'em next year!
Thank you for supporting our annual Bosco Gala, “Celebrating 20 Years of Academic Excellence, Faith, and Community.” This was an amazing event and we exceeded our goal with a profit of $138,245.44! The funds from this event will tremendously benefit our school by providing curriculum, technology upgrades, and classroom materials for every teacher. We are truly grateful for your generosity and support for the students of St. John Bosco.
As promised, since we achieved our goal, the entire SJB community is invited to attend “Sundae on Monday” this Monday, March 21st at 2:30 PM in our courtyard. Each grade level will be given a different topping to pour, sprinkle, or squirt on me to make me into a giant sundae! You won’t want to miss this gooey, hilarious event!
Lastly, I want to congratulate the Stallings Family for winning the “Tuition Raffle.” They will receive $5000 off of their tuition for next school year. Thank you to everyone who purchased a ticket to help support our beloved school. Maybe next year your family will be the lucky winner!
