07-02-2021Notes from the Principal

Dear Parents,

I hope you are all having a wonderful summer spending time with family and friends. On behalf of our faculty and staff of Saint John Bosco Catholic School, I’d like to welcome you to the 2021-22 school year! 

To begin, I would like to thank Mrs. Anita Petitti for her guidance and support during this transition in leadership. Her willingness to share her wisdom and experience with me during the summer has been a true blessing and her legacy will continue to guide me throughout the years. I am incredibly excited to begin our 2021-22 school year as your new principal and sincerely appreciate your continued support. 

We are all very eager to see your children on August 11 to begin another fabulous year of learning and growing! This is a uniquely exciting time for our community as we celebrate our 20th Anniversary and welcome parents and volunteers back on campus. We have many fun events planned, so be sure to read the Bulldog Bite in its entirety each Friday beginning in August so you don’t miss anything.

We have been busy this summer making adjustments to enhance the safety, learning environment, and quality of education for all learners. Masks are optional at this time, although, depending on the virus, our school is prepared to make adjustments as needed to maintain the safety of our students and staff. When entering campus, all parents and visitors must enter through the school office or front gate. The north gate may only be used for ESP after school hours. 

I am also happy to announce that our sixth grade will now rotate between the two 6th grade teachers. Our Junior High will consist of 7th and 8th grades. This model allows for more instructional time for all students in each academic area. More wonderful news is that as our enrollment continues to grow, so does our faculty and staff!
