We had a fabulous 1st week of school! Thanks to our PTO our students entered our school gates in style. Father James and I enjoyed greeting each student and their parents as they walked down the red carpet. What a wonderful way to start our school year and celebrate our 20th Anniversary! We hope you will all join us tomorrow (Saturday) from 5:00 - 7:00 PM for our Back to School BBQ hosted by our PTO, Dads’ Club, St. Benedict, and the Fr. Bob Binta Knights of Columbus. Food, music, games and dunk tank entertainment will be provided for all to enjoy. This event will be held outside in our courtyard and MPR.
Our annual Curriculum Night is this Wednesday, August 18 from 6:00 - 7:30 PM starting with prayer and introductions in the Multi-Purpose Room (MPR). You will then proceed to your child’s classroom to hear a brief teacher presentation regarding the curriculum and their daily routine.
For parents of preschool through sixth-grade students, there will be two 20-minute sessions: the first session is 6:30-6:50PM; the second session is 6:55-7:15PM. The Junior High (seventh and eighth grades) session will be held in the MPR from 6:55-7:20PM. Please remember that this is a parents-only evening.
Teachers of enrichment programs or “specials” (STEM, Music, Library, Spanish, Art Masterpiece, P.E., Resource) will be available in the library from 6:30 - 7:30 PM to answer questions and provide information about their impressive curriculums.
I am also happy to announce our new music teacher Luis Rodriguez. Luis holds a doctorate in musical arts and has 15 years of experience teaching choir and music to children of all ages. We are thrilled to have Dr. Rodriguez join our SJB faculty!
