Dear School Families,
It is hard to believe the school year has come to an end so quickly. We have so much to be proud of in the 2017-2018 school year and I could not be more proud to be part of this St. Joseph Parish School family! At the awards ceremony on the last day, I issued a few summer challenges to the students:
1. READ!!! All of the time and anything you can! Depending on your grade/reading level, you can be introduced to as few as 50 or as many as 300 new vocabulary words with every book you read.
2. Get STEMMY!!!! Solve problems, ask questions, innovate, design and build, test, and improve. There are opportunities in everyday life to help us think like engineers and problem solve. If you do something you would like to share, tell us about it! Write us a letter, send me an email, tell me when you see me at Target over the summer. We love to hear about your educational adventures over the summer!
3. Help others! Let the world see Jesus in you each day. Find opportunities to think about others and go beyond yourself. Even though you don’t wear our SJS logo on your shirt all summer, you are still representing our school. Represent it well because we have a lot to be proud of!
4. Have fun, because this is what summer is about, of course!!!!
Although we are all ready for a summer break, we look forward to gathering back together in August!
