Hello parents, faculty and friends!
Springtime is upon us and, with it, the joys of longer days and warmer sunshine! The last couple of months of the school year go fast, as you know. Let’s make the most out of each day.
We’ve made it through our first time using FACTS Tuition Management and following a new registration process. Current family registration closed Feb. 28, and we are looking forward to seeing many of you back for the 2019-2020 school year.
I wanted to thank each and every one of you for working with us through this new process. We are all learning together, and understand that there are always ways to improve upon any procedure we undertake. If you have recommendations on how to make the registration process smoother for all, please don’t hesitate to contact me. We are open to suggestions.
SJS is still enrolling new families for next year. If there is someone you think may be interested in enrolling their children in our school, please refer them to Jennifer Moran. We’d love to take families on a tour so they can see firsthand the value of our Catholic education!
As you know, stewardship is essential to our school. We seek to instill in our students the importance of giving back to the communities in which they live. As a way to reinforce this, we are always looking for more ways to serve.
This year, many people have come together to introduce a new middle school service project that will set a precedent for years to come. If the weather cooperates, our middle school students will spend April 16 at Freeman Lake Park creating a new resting space and cleaning trails. All of this work will be completed in memory of Tai Le, SJS student who passed away last year. Stay tuned for more information on this exciting project!
Also upcoming is Kentucky Gives Day. Last year we were able to raise more than $60,000 for our school. Thank you to everyone who participated, and we are excited to share this year’s project with you as soon as we have more information. Mark your calendars for May 14, Kentucky Gives Day 2019!
The Lenten Season is upon us and I hope everyone is preparing through prayer and repentance. Easter is a time for rebirth. Let’s all take time to reflect on that and, with it, our scripture theme: Behold, I make all things new — Revelation 21:5. For it is through the love of God that we are made new.
