Dear SJPS Families,

Finally the weather looks to be cooling off for Fall! This past weekend, my family was blessed to celebrate our daughter Emily's engagement. It was a beautiful time to meet our future son in law's family and celebrate together. Life speeds by us so quickly! I used to hear my mom saying those same words and now I am learning just how true those words can be. Hug your kids a little more this weekend and if you haven't done so lately, spend time with them and just talk...and listen. They will love the time to be able to share things with you! And you will be so r ewarded for your time 💗

I want to send out a very big thank you to everyone who took time out of their busy schedules last week for two school events. On Wednesday, 9/25, we hosted a parent information evening and had fun conversation and questions that were all started with our SJPS Jeopardy Game. We had wonderful appetizers of chips and salsa all thanks to Fiesta Cancun.

Our second event last week was through our fabulous SJPS Home and School! Aubrey Samson and Emily Keigher, along with many wonderful volunteers helped us bring Screenagers to our community. We had a positive reaction to the viewing and great feedback to the discussion that followed the viewing. We are also interested in showing the classroom version to our MS students. I will keep everyone informed as I find out the details.

Peace and blessings,

Mrs. Mary Johnson
Fr. Tom Brundage

We are open to hearing them and welcome your help! Call the school office to let us know you would like to help!
