A Letter From Dr. Maloney


Dear SJB Families,

During the season of Advent, we are preparing for the coming of the birth of Jesus. At St. John Brebeuf School, we have many traditions that we hold dear as we prepare together. Our students in third through eighth grades went to Reconciliation last week to prepare to welcome Jesus with a clean, fresh heart. Our school will be attending Mass on Thursday this week instead of Friday for the Feast of the Immaculate Conception. Please join us in the church at 8:30 if you are able. We love our Christmas trees in the front of our lobby! Students create beautiful ornaments during art class and place the ornaments on the tree themselves. As you can see, our second graders did a beautiful job! Ask your child what other activities we are doing to prepare for Christmas. 

Breakfast with Santa is this weekend! We are very excited to have this wonderful tradition return. We hope to see you there.

Sick Students: We have been sending many children home from school who are sick. Their symptoms have been fever (over 99.5 degrees), vomiting, diarrhea, runny nose, and coughing, in addition to others. Please keep your child home if they are sick. When children come to school with fevers, runny noses, coughs, and/or vomit or have diarrhea while they are in school, they are spreading germs to other children and staff. Any child who presents with symptoms of illness will be sent home from school. Children must be symptom-free for at least 24 hours before they can return to school. 

Teacher Fund: Please donate to the teacher fund. We are continuing to accept donations. 

Dress for the weather! It is colder now, and we go outside for recess every day. Winter coats, hats, and gloves are a must.
