Principal's Message - May 4th
Last Saturday was our Celebración Gala. It was a fantastic evening and we raised a lot of money to provide families with tuition assistance. We will let you know the total very soon! Thank you to all of the families who assisted with set-up, take-down, decorations, and those who attended/supported this special event. A special thank you goes to: Caroline DeMesa (Decorations); Jakeline Lemus (Dancing); Janet Lepore (Flowers); Eugene DeMesa (Speaker); Gloria and Jesus Gomez (Speaker); Jack Peterson (Speaker); Gina Cole, Heather Young, and Alyssa Illich (Registration); Kim and Cole Cosgrove (Powerpoint, Event Program); Casey McKinney (Lighting, Pipe & Drape); Jeff Klein (Tables); Ron Nolting and Dave Lepore (Technology); our student greeters and performers; and, of course, Sarah McKinney (Development Coordinator). We couldn't have done it without you!!
Have a great week!

Woodcock-Muñoz Tesing for JDA Students (Grades K - 3): Can You Help??
We will be testing all K-3 students in both English and Spanish. We need help with volunteers to get the testing done! Here is the information - please email Dr. Bridget Yaden if you can help. These hours all count towards your family volunteer commitment.
1) Since you'll be one-on-one with students, you need to have completed the Safe Environment course.
2) Participate in a one-hour training on how to administer the test. Thursday, 5/12 at 2 pm is the time.
3) Sign up for hours during the weeks of 5/16-5/26 - we will test all day, every day except during lunches and Mass. You don't need to work all of the hours, of course, but at least 2 or 3 hours total to make the training worth your time.
Please email me if you can help - and let me know which language(s) you can test in - English, Spanish, or both.
- Mrs. Silva who underwent surgery on Monday!
- All who are ill with cancer and other diseases.
- Those who are home-bound.
- All who are homeless in our community and throughout the world.
