Dear St. Juliana Parents,
“Spread love everywhere you go. Let no one ever come to you without leaving happier.”~Saint Mother Teresa
Halloween fun is fast approaching with creative costumes and Halloween festivities. St. Juliana School students will be celebrating Halloween on Thursday, October 31st, with a Halloween parade from 8-9:30am, and class parties taking place later that day. It will be regular dismissal at 2:40pm on October 31st. Parents please remember if you plan on attending a class party please sign in at the front office and place your vehicle in the proper location for carpool with the placard on the dash. Safety and security of the students is always a priority and with events like Halloween it is important that students stay in their classrooms until dismissal and wait to be called for carpool.
We will be celebrating All Saints Day on November 1st with our very own 3rd grade saints marching in to mass at 8:00am. I invite all of the St. Juliana Falconieri School community to come to mass and celebrate with us. The end of the first trimester is November 15th with parent conferences taking place all day on Thursday November 21st and Friday, November 22nd. There will be a noon dismissal on Wednesday, November 20th, to prepare for the all day conferences. Parents will be able to log-on to FACTS on Friday, November 1st at 12:30pm to register for your parent conference. It is important that students attend the conference to discuss current and future progress.
Thanksgiving is just around the corner, followed by the Advent season. Our theme for the month of November is gratitude: A readiness to show appreciation for kindness. A person who shows thankfulness, gratefulness, and appreciation acknowledges another persons’ mutual generosity.
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.
