“Awake, mankind! For your sake God has become man…I tell you again: for your sake, God became man.”

St. Augustine

From Mr. Merrick

Dear St. Jerome Families,

Thanks to your generosity, we raised over 370.00 with our December Spirit Day; each class was able to purchase gifts for a SPIN resident from our parish giving tree (17 in all). The gifts are going to be delivered to the rectory where they will be picked up by SPIN on Monday.

Yesterday, Fr. Reilly celebrated our December School Liturgy for the Feast of St. Lucy. We are proud of our friends at St. Lucy School who served as our readers and gift bearers. We also recognized our Students of the Month of December; these students were recognized for living the virtue of purity:

St. Jerome School: Jake Profka, Brynn Szlanic, Quinn Graham, Deborah Adam, Nicholas Salama, Anthony O’Brien, Grace Paone, Luke Agront, Helena Profka, Matthew Reis Jr., Timothy McGinnis, Owen Dudzek, Logan Rivera, Liam Drab, Kiersten McBride, Maira Sardar, Jacob Brescia, Madelyn McAdams, Santiago Cruz, Allyson McAdams, Dominic Macrina, Sarah Harmon, Jacob Dang

St. Lucy School: Zai’Ley Bradley, Kennedy Walton, Nevaeh Jackson, Sean Marriott, Layan Sami Rihan

For January, we will be working on the virtue of fortitude.

Thursday lunch order forms for January are due tomorrow.

Also tomorrow, our school nurse, assisted by her colleagues at Salus University, will be conducting annual vision screenings in kindergarten through 8th grade; if your child usually wears glasses, please make sure he or she brings them to school.

Have a great rest of the week; St. Jerome and St. Lucy, pray for us!

Registration for 2023-2024

We want to make sure that we save seats for our current families and new siblings through the end of January 27th when new student registration will begin. Copies of all of this information are also below. You can also return the Continuous Enrollment form electronically here. Registration fees will be added to your tuition account, so there is no need to send anything back, except for the Continuous Enrollment Form (paper or electronic) at this time.

If you are registering a new sibling, please indicate that on the paper or electronic form. Then, an application will be sent home by Mrs. Bacanskas for you to fill out.
