A Letter From Dr. Maloney

 

Dear SJB Families,

It is hard to believe that it is the end of the school year! We had such a fun day last Thursday at our end-of-the-year picnic with all of the water activities and the delicious Dairy Queen lunch. Thank you so much to our amazing P/SA for sponsoring this day. This was a great way to end our school year.

I would like to thank our three parent boards for all they do for our students and our school community. Our School Advisory Board, who helps set the direction for our school and facilitates our major fundraisers: Ed Mallon, Dani Nguyen, Mari Bangayan, Anna Chan, and Margie Rumpsa. Our Athletic Board, who facilitates our exemplary athletic programs for our students: Melissa Salazar, Mike Dutkin, Julie England, Shelley Fallon, Les Seitzinger, Rachel Martin, Marty Gahbauer, Mark Olszweski, Anson Henson, Damien Zienkiewicz, Kim Beisty, Ronda Goetz, Heather Tarjan, and Gilbert Abadilla. Our Parish/School Association, who provides wonderful family events and activities for our students: Marie Usdrowski, Cheryle Solis, Margaret Zienkiewicz, and Marissa Diercksmeier. 

Summer reading: This summer, students who will be in grades 3-8 in the fall will engage in summer reading. When we return to school in August, students will participate in various activities connected to their books. Grades 3-5 will read Wonder by R. J. Polacio. Students in grades 6-8 will read Turtle in Paradise by Jennifer L. Holm. You can order these books inexpensively online. 

4th of July Parade: We need you!! St. John Brebeuf School is marching in the 4th of July Parade on Monday, July 4th. The parade kicks off at 8:45. We will meet behind Notre Dame High School. We need SJB families to join us to represent our school. Please wear spirit wear or an SJB sports jersey. Bring water, and wear a hat and sunscreen. We could use a few wagons as well. Please email Michael Giordano at mgiordano@sjbschool.org to let him know that you are joining us. 

New Staff: I am pleased to have three new staff members join our SJB family for next year. Welcome to Ms. Florinda Nitti- Intermediate Team, writing and reading; Mr. Whit Kuhn- Middle School Team, math; Mrs. Kasha Guzman- Middle School Team, science. They are all experienced teachers who will bring a lot to our school. 

Oktoberfest is back! Reserve the date! Our annual Oktoberfest is September 9 and 10. This is a weekend full of German food, beverages, music, and fun, and is becoming the largest fundraiser for our school. We will need EVERY parent to volunteer in some capacity during the event. Volunteering is a great way to get to know other parents while helping out at school. Funds raised during this fundraiser help keep the cost of our tuition low.

Re-register for the 2022-2023 school year: If you haven’t registered your child yet, please do so as soon as possible. Additionally, please encourage your friends and family members to enroll their children at our school. We would love to meet with them and give them a tour over the summer. 

Virtus: I am so excited about having parents attend class parties and events next year! All parents need to be Virtus trained and complete all other requirements in order to volunteer, go on field trips, attend class parties, or coach. Go to  https://www.virtusonline.org/virtus/  to set up your account, participate in the online training, or check your existing account to make sure you have completed all monthly bulletins and required items. Please contact Mrs. McErlean in the office with any questions at 847-966-3266.
