Dear St. John Paul II Families,

Happy Catholic Schools Week!  In keeping with this year's school theme, "Forming Families of Disciples", we kicked off this week's events with a lovely Mass and Reception honoring our awesome volunteers.  As a community, we are stronger because of YOU and your tireless dedication.  THANK YOU to all of our moms and dads who volunteer their time and talents, which go so far to benefit our students and teachers. We know that everyone is busy, and so we greatly appreciate your efforts; no matter how big or small you make a difference here everyday.  The prospective families who have toured recently experienced first-hand just how special the families of StJPII really are.

We will wrap up this week with First Friday Mass, followed by NJHS Inductions and our Talent Show. Even though it's only Tuesday, I can already tell we are in for lots of excitement.  Please read this edition of Saints Weekl y  because there is so much going on you won't want to miss. Catholic Schools Week offers us the opportunity to reflect and thank God for the blessing of our faith as witnessed through our schools. St. John Paul II Catholic School is more than just a building; it's here where the Lord's spirit is is alive, where we serve, come together as families, and prepare our students' hearts and minds to be Christ for others.

Have a blessed week,
