Prayers for our 2nd graders
Let us keep our 2nd graders in our prayers as they receive the sacrament of Reconciliation this weekend. 

"Confession is an act of honesty and courage - an act of entrusting ourselves, beyond sin, to the mercy of a loving and forgiving God."  --Pope John Paul 2

Tax Credit Program
A legislative bill has been introduced in the State of Virginia and, if passed, will have a significant negative impact on several Catholic schools in our area.
Delegate David Bulova (D-Fairfax Station) has introduced a bill (HB 521) to repeal the Education Improvement Scholarship Tax Credit. This is a program that provides more than $2 million to nearly 500 students across our Diocese.

Re-Enrollment Information
With our 93% retention rate, it is reasonable to  streamline our re-enrollment processes.  The process is restructured so that current students will be automatically re-enrolled for the 2020-2021 school year. 

Enrollment fees of $300 per child will be charged on  February 1, 2020 from the FACTS account on file. If there is a need for an alternate payment schedule or you have questions, please contact Debbie Millon (dmillon@sjcherndon.org or 703-880-4355) in the Business Office. We are confident that you will find this expedited and recurring re-enrollment process helpful. 
Sibling Registration - Don't forget!
Spaces are filling fast!

For any siblings that anticipate attending St. Joseph Catholic School in Fall of 2020, don't forget to submit your application! With the upcoming Open House on Jan. 28, we want to make sure you secure your spot! Spaces are filling VERY quickly!
