Principal's Message

Tuesday, October, 6, 2020

Dear SFX Family,

WOW! Thank you so much for the generosity and support of the Jaguar Fun Run! We had so much fun during the 2-week process. We do not have a final number yet, but we know that we raised over $30,000! THANK YOU!

Tomorrow begins 1st Quarter exams for sixth and seventh grade students. Please keep them in your prayers as the study and show what they know!

Please know that we are monitoring the weather and staying in close contact with local officials. Please pray to Our Lady of Prompt Succor that we are spared from Hurricane Delta. If there is any change to the school schedule or information regarding the storm, I will update you ASAP.

There is information below about the school-wide Halloween Costume Day and Trunk-or-Treat.

As always, please do not hesitate to contact me if you need anything. Have a great week!

May God bless you and keep you,


Jessica A. Dwyer, M.Ed.

Halloween Costume Day

Thanks to your hard work, support, and generosity, we crushed our s-t-r-e-t-c-h goal for the fun run. This means the students earned a fun, not-so-scary, Halloween Costume Day! Please review the following guidelines for Thursday, October 29, 2020:

  • Students may not bring any weapon-like accessories to school.
  • Students may not wear any gory, scary, or violent costumes - Please be thoughtful in your choices remembering that we have students as young as 2 years old on campus.
  • We request that our students do not wear political costumes to school.
  • All students must still wear their face mask to school with their costume.
  • Students should not wear any costume that would obstruct their view in class or that of others.
