Principal's Message

Dear St. Juliana Parents,

 

“Sing joyfully to the Lord, all you lands: serve the Lord with gladness; come before him with joyful song. Know that the Lord is God; he made us, his we are; his people, the flock he tends. Enter his gates with thanksgiving, his courts with praise; Give thanks to him; bless his name, for he is good: the Lord, whose kindness endures forever, and all his faithfulness, to all generations” (Psalm 100).

 

The Halloween parade was a wonderful event this year. A big thank you to student council and Mrs. Arabia for putting together an entertaining Halloween parade. I want to express my gratitude to the teachers and the parent volunteers who worked together on class parties and activities for the students.

 

It was wonderful sight to see our 3rd grade Saints marching in on All Saints' Day. I would like to thank Ms. Muret, who teaches and prepares the students about the lives of their Saint. I would also like to thank Mrs. Keifer and Mrs. Galvan for assisting Ms. Muret in preparing the Saints to march into church. I am very appreciative of Father Mike who did an outstanding job of celebrating the mass and making our Saints feel very special. We are truly blessed to celebrate the feast of All Saints' Day as a community.

 

The month of November is a very busy month with many activities and fundraisers taking place. The end of the first trimester is November 1lth as well as our Veterans Day program at 2pm in the Parish Center. Please feel free to join us as we honor our Veteran heroes. Parent conferences will be taking place all day on Thursday, November 17th and Friday, November 18th. Please remember to register for a conference. There will be a noon dismissal on Wednesday, November 16th to prepare for the conferences. Thanksgiving break will be November 21st-November 25th. It is important that students attend the conferences to discuss current and future progress. Our Father-Daughter Dance will be held on November 18th from 6:30-9:30pm in the Parish Center. If you have the opportunity to come out to the Bingo, Bubbles, and Baubles on November 19th from 5-9pm in the Parish Center, all proceeds raised support our 7th graders for their Washington DC trip next year.

 

Thanksgiving is fast approaching, 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 person’s mutual generosity.

 

May you all know that I am truly appreciative of your support, kindness, and generosity to Saint Juliana Falconieri School. May you have a blessed Thanksgiving with family and friends. God has blessed us in each other and we are grateful to Him. Let us remember each day: Pray, Hope, and Don’t Worry.

 

 

God bless,

Dr. Manuel Gonzales Jr.
