Principal Weekly Letter
Message from the Principal - June 12, 2019
This will be my last Principal’s Message for the 2018-2019 school year, and it has been a wonderful year at that. The teachers and staff of St. John School have loved watching your children grow academically and socially this school year and are proud to have been a part of their school journey. It’s amazing how quickly our children grow up!
We thank you for your continued support. We could not do the important work we do in our classrooms without you—our dedicated St. John School parents. The trust you put in us to guide and grow your children is truly appreciated.
I would like to thank our outstanding faculty and support staff. St. John School teachers and staff work tirelessly to develop wonderful lessons that bring your child’s learning to the next level. I am honored to work with this dedicated group of professionals every day.
As our 8th graders move on to high school, we wish them the best of luck. This year’s graduating class was a talented group of young students who I am confident will go on to do great things in their near and distant future.
Speaking of moving on, Mrs. Janicki has decided that this school year will be her last year. It has been a real privilege working with such a kind-hearted, dedicated, peaceful and loving first grade teacher. I know you join me in thanking God for her tremendous work here at our beloved school and in wishing her a restful and peaceful retirement.
Once I learned that Mrs. Janicki was planning on retiring, I asked Mother Marie Julie if she had a first grade Sister to send. Mother said she did, so therefore, it is my pleasure to announce that Sister Mary Kathleen will be returning to St. John School to teach first grade for the 2019-2020 academic year. Sister Mary Kathleen taught first grade here at St. John 18 years ago. She is one of the best first grade teachers with whom I have had the privilege to work. Sister began her teaching career twenty years ago when I was Principal at St. Joseph School in North Grosvenordale. I am very pleased to welcome Sister Mary Kathleen back to St. John.
Lastly, have a wonderful summer. Childhood goes by so very quickly, as we know, so take the relaxing days of summer to make some wonderful family memories.
God bless you.
