From the Principal

If today you hear his voice, harden not your hearts.

Psalm 95

Hello Everyone - Happy Catholic Schools Week!

We kicked off the week with a fabulous Open House and Book Fair this past Sunday.  It was awesome to see so many current families attend the family mass and visit the school.  What an outstanding event! Thank you to all our families who were able to join us and spend some time viewing our beautiful school and giving our new families a glimpse of what makes our school community so special. Certainly your presence made a great impression on our new families.

Special thanks to our School Board members and Lisa Geiger for organizing such an awesome Open House, our NJHS students who acted as tour guides, and to the faculty and staff who spent many hours preparing for the event and welcoming our guests.  A big thank you to the parents who volunteered to help with the tours and those who placed Open House signs in our community.

A big shout out to Janine, Brian, Kevin, Dennis, and Michael Schoen for representing our families so well at the family mass.  Your words were so touching and reflect the beautiful heart and soul of this community.

Also a big shout out to FSA for organizing an outstanding Book Fair.  Thanks to all the parent volunteers who planned, worked, or helped clean up.

E-Learning for an emergency closing.  Hopefully, we won’t need to close school another day this year, but if we do, we will use an e-learning day.  An e-Learning day is used in place of a school day that has been canceled due to inclement weather. Students will complete learning activities and assignments provided by the teacher at home. Please view the following directives/guidelines for an e-learning day.  If you have any questions please reach out to your child’s teacher.

Congratulations to the following 8th graders who qualified for academic scholarships based on their high school entrance exam scores.  I am very proud of what these students have accomplished.

Natalia Chacia - St. Viator

Ryan Geiger - Notre Dame College Prep

Carley Heiden - St. Viator

Leanne Kumpuckal - St. Viator

Ashley Laskiewicz - St. Viator

Yulianna Manzanares - St. Viator 

Aayan Nanavati - St. Viator

Samantha Rivera - St. Viator

Zachary Shapiro - St. Viator

At St. Viator, students from 65 different schools took the entrance exam and only 32 merit scholarships were awarded. Our students accounted for 25% of the scholarships awarded. Go Eagles!

Congratulations to all of the students who participated in the spelling bee yesterday. Sixth grader Ava Bellina took first place. The rest of the top 5 finishers are: 2nd place Aayan Nanavati, 3rd place Charlie Kelleher, and tied for 4th place Sayan Nanavati and Lukas Sperka. Good luck as they will represent SES at the Knights of Columbus local spelling bee contest on Saturday.

Our 8th grade boys’ basketball team has finished the regular season undefeated!  We wish them good luck as they move into the conference playoffs.

Have a wonderful week!

Ms. Booth
