May 21: Thank you, Parents!

Thank you to each parent of SJB. We are thankful and blessed to partner with you in educating your child. This partnership is truly a two-way street, and that has never been more apparent than right now. We are deeply appreciative of the new way you are supporting teaching and learning from home. As the year concludes, we will have another parent survey coming out to allow us to learn more about the parent-side of this experience.

Supply Pick-up and Drop-off 
Linked on the top of this document is our process for families to return school-owned supplies and to pick up personal belongings. Please take the time to review this process to ensure it is a safe and efficient experience for all of our families.

Eighth Grade Graduation
This week our eighth graders will receive a package and yard sign delivery from Miss Withbroe. If you drive by the school, you can find our eighth graders’ names on the digital sign. Their names will appear in the diocesan newspaper, The Compass, as well as our parish bulletin. We remain committed to providing an in-person liturgy as soon as state guidelines allow. We will share a date for the liturgy once something is certain.

Fall 2020
There are many teams of school leaders actively planning and preparing for our return to school in the fall, including the GRACE Board of Trustees. We will return. When we do, we will be following the directives of our state and national leaders so that we can provide a safe, healthy, and loving environment for students. I promise to communicate with you throughout the summer and provide details with you as an outlook becomes more certain.
