This beautiful Monday that God gave us is winding down. During our Flag Raising ceremony on Friday, we talked about today being a time to remember all of those who served, and are serving, our Nation. It is because of them that we are privileged to have the freedoms and rights that exist for us today. We are grateful...
On Thursday this week (May 31) it is necessary that we change the time for our all-school Mass. Due to a funeral in the morning, we will celebrate the Eighth Grade's last SJV School Mass at 2:00 pm. Please join us as we pray with them as a school family for their final time
Mrs. Anne Henderson, who has prepared lunch for our students for many, many years, is leaving SJV at the end of our school year. Her youngest daughter is graduating from Powers Catholic next weekend, and Anne has decided that she no longer needs a job that follows the school calendar. (I remember the days that her daughters played Polly Pockets on the floor in the kitchen while Anne cooked and served the lunches!) We are so grateful for Anne's many years of taking care of us, and will miss seeing her everyday. We will also miss her Mom, Mrs. McDonald, who came a day or two a week to help in the kitchen. The staff always looked forward to the special treats Mrs. McDonald brought us -thank you, Jan!
Also leaving is long-time kitchen volunteer, Mike Tobias. Mr. Tobias began helping out when his daughter, Rose, was a student at SJV, and continued doing so all these years. He was a tremendous help to Anne, and we could count on him to fill in if Anne had to 'be absent' for a day. Mike certainly is example of "a good and faithful servant."
Mike Sherman has also volunteered in the kitchen two days a week for the last several years, but his youngest son will be going to Powers Catholic next year, so Mr. Sherman will do his volunteer work up there. He was very faithful with being here, and that is appreciated. Thank you, Mr. Sherman!
If you wish to have your student receive tutoring in math or reading this summer, Mrs. Kathy Benish will be available to work with students in grades kindergarten through four, and Mrs. Mary Hirzel Clark will work with students five through eight. Please email (email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org) or call the school office (235-5687) to reach them.
I am to call Holy Redeemer Wednesday after school and tell them how many students are attending the festival as we have to pick up the ride bracelets on Thursday. Please be certain that your child's permission slip is turned in on Wednesday. Thank you!
