This year Halloween fun will look and be very different. St. Juliana will be celebrating Halloween on Friday, October 29th. Please note that October 29th will be a noon dismissal. Students will be allowed to wear costumes to school, but must continue to wear their masks. The students can use their creativity and have the mask be part of their costume. We will be having our traditional Halloween Parade from 8:00-9:00 a.m. on the field. If you plan on attending the parade, masks must be worn at all times. Also, later in the evening on October 29th, we welcome the return of “Trunk or Treat”. We look forward to this wonderful community-building event. Trunk or Treat will be from 6:00-8:00 p.m. Parents who wish to participate in Trunk or Treat can arrive at 5:00 p.m. The gates will close at 5:45 p.m.
Our junior high students will see the return of their Halloween Dance. This event will be held on the upper playground from 7:00-9:00 p.m.
We will be celebrating the All Saints Day on November 1st with our very own 3rd grade saints marching in to mass at 8:00 a.m. The St. Juliana School students will have the wonderful opportunity to attend mass. In addition, the 3rd grade students will be able to invite two family members to celebrate this beautiful occasion with them.
The month of September has come and gone. St. Juliana School is one of many ministries in the parish community. I am truly appreciative to each of you for volunteering and supporting the parish festival. We are beginning the month of October with many different school events. Please make sure to visit the school calendar often. The monthly virtue for October is courage: mental or moral strength to persevere. Let us always have the courage to do what is right!
May you all know that I am truly appreciative of your support, kindness, and generosity to St. Juliana Falconieri School. May you have a safe Halloween and a blessed Thanksgiving with family and friends. God has blessed us in each other and we are grateful to Him.
Mr. Manuel Gonzales Jr., Ed. D.
