Dear St. Juliana Parents,
“Lord, make me an instrument of your peace; where there is hatred, let me sow love; where there is injury, pardon; where there is doubt, faith; where there is despair, hope; where there is darkness, light; and where there is sadness, joy.”-St. Francis
Halloween fun will soon be fast approaching with creative costumes and Halloween festivities. St. Juliana will be celebrating Halloween on Wednesday, October 31st. This year the Halloween parade will begin at 8am in the parish center and class parties will be taking place throughout the day. It will be regular dismissal at 2:40pm on October 31st. Parents please remember if you plan on attending our child’s class party to please sign in at the front office and place your vehicle in the proper location for carpool with the placard on the dash. Please remember that Safe Environment protocols must be followed. The safety and security of the students is always a priority and with events like Halloween it is important that students stay in their classrooms and wait to be called for carpool.
On Saturday, November 3rd at 5pm, 2nd and 6th grades will be celebrating the mass with the parish community. I would like to invite all St. Juliana school families to come and celebrate the mass. Thank you to all those individuals and families who helped support Trunk or Treat. It was truly a fun community gathering.
The end of the first trimester is November 9th with modifications to parent conference scheduling. Parent conferences will be taking place all day on Thursday, November 15th and Friday, November 16th. There will be a noon dismissal on Wednesday, November 14th, to prepare for the all day conferences. Thanksgiving break will be November 19th through November 23rd. Parents please remember to log-on to Sycamore to register for your parent conference. It is important that students attend the conferences to discuss current and future progress. 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. M.A. Ed.
