Dear St. John Paul II Families,

Last week was a very busy week at StJPII. We had our annual Staff Service Awards Dinner, where several of our faculty and staff were honored for reaching milestone anniversaries. Please join me in congratulating and thanking the following individuals for their service and dedication to St. John Paul II Catholic School:

Retiring: Deanne Gordon
50 years in education: Kenneth Griffin
25 years of service: Jeanne Aertker, Sherry Lamb
20 years of service: Martha Hanessian, Karen Love
15 years of service: Molly Richard
10 years of service: Yolanda Cavazos, Nancy Valencia
5 years of service: Piri Campo, Betty Costantini, Magda Fasci, Sarah Lowen

On Friday, we celebrated our blessed Mother Mary with May Crowning. It was so wonderful to see the children bring many beautiful flowers in honor of the mother of our church. 

The week ended with our first All School Reunion that brought alumni, alumni parents, and former faculty and staff back to our campus. It was truly amazing to see how many past StJPII families came to celebrate Mass and honor our Distinguished Alumni. Fr. Eamonn said it best, “We may go off into different directions in life, but our roots are what grounds us. The StJPII community is your roots and we’re so glad that you came home.”

We have a lot of great events planned on campus in the coming weeks as we approach the end of this school year. I hope to see you soon!

In Him,
