Principal’s News Week of May 11th

Last Friday’s Jogathon and Talent Show were such a testament to the community spirit at SJF. Special thanks go out to our Jogathon chairs, Cindy Sawyer and Alisa Gaylord, and their crew of hard workers who helped this event “run” so seamlessly from start to the finish line. Thank You! Please return your pledge packet to the school office by this Thursday, May 14th, to be eligible for prizes.

This weekend we will celebrate the official kick off to our Growing to Serve capital campaign. During Mass, we will ask for your “final answer” regarding your campaign pledge, we will unveil our Growing to Serve video, and have coffee & donuts or wine & cheese after all Masses. All SJF school families are encouraged to attend and students will receive a free dress coupon for attending Mass on May 16 & 17. Special thanks to all who have made a pledge already (list is attached to SAM). Currently to date, these individuals have contributed pledges totaling over $2.8 million. Our collective goal is $4 million and with your support we can reach that goal.

Continuing on the topic of supporting great causes, yesterday marked the first day of our Mac and Cheese drive for the Sunshine division. Students are welcome to bring boxes to their classrooms and we will collect through Friday, May 22nd.

In closing, on Friday you will receive an email with directions to complete registration for 2015-16. While you are relaxing this weekend, please take a moment to complete the paperwork (most is online this year!) and return the necessary documents by next Friday, May 22nd. Thanks for your timely response.
