From the Principal

Today at Mass for the Feast of the Ascension, Fr. Crispin reminded us that before Jesus ascended into Heaven, he visited the apostles and promised us through them that he would always be with us. I am reminded of that promise so frequently each day. The goodness of Jesus shines through the children’s smiles and their tears. He is present when they show me their soaring eagle awards for being kind friends, for persisting through problems, for following directions. He is present when they are doing acts of service and resolving conflicts. He is present when they are raising their voices in song and praise and even when they are telling me when they are having a tough day. Through it all, Jesus is here for us.

I am sure He enjoyed as much as I did hearing the Cantionis choir singing the National Anthem at the Mariners Game on Tuesday evening. Be sure to check out the post below and turn up your volume! Also, see the photos on Facebook. Thank you so much, Mrs. Ellen Pepin-Cato for directing the choir and teaching the students so well that they auditioned successfully and sang so well.

Summer adventures are fast approaching. The children are already talking about hiking, biking, traveling, and summer camps. It is a great time for them to try out new sports, develop new hobbies and meet new friends. The days are long, so there is also time to help the children to maintain their math and reading skills. See the post today about being a Summer Superhero.

Even though the summer excitement is in the building, we still have three weeks of school and many activities ahead.

  • Tonight, join us for the Art Show at 6:00pm in Egan Hall. You will be amazed at the skill, imagination and creativity of your children. Thank you, Mrs. Jang!
  • On Saturday, June 1, the track team competes in the CYO Championship. Go St. John!
  • Final exams have started for many grades.
  • Field trips, Field Day, Habitat Day, Graduation events, and so much more are all coming up fast.

Be sure to check your calendars. In the meantime, the students are still in uniform and working on the Schoolwide Learning Expectations.

God Bless,

Bernadette O’Leary
