The Good News- April 3, 2022

Saint John XXIII Catholic School 2021-2022

Leadership Message

Welcome back! I hope that each of you had a wonderful break and enjoyed special time with friends and family.

I want to take this opportunity to thank all of our St. John XXIII families for their continued support and encouragement. Our school is enjoying a successful year so far, with students learning, playing, and praying with energy and enthusiasm everyday. I would also like to thank the teachers and staff for their generous contributions to our school. Without their faithfulness and dedication, none of our daily success would be possible.

Mrs. Willis Dengler

Fifth Sunday of Lent

This weekend's Gospel is a beautiful reminder of how Jesus shows us grace instead of judgement, and forgiveness instead of condemnation. Through Him we can be free to live a life covered in His love.

A HUGE thank you to our SJXXIII families for your support at the Book Fair!

It was amazing having families back shopping at the fair again, and a special thank you to Ms. Trainor and her daughter for their effort with the decorations.

It was a tremendous success!
