We truly appreciate the feedback and the willingness for students, staff,
parents and guardians to work together to keep our playground a safe place. During the month of October, we celebrated Saint John Paul II’s feast day, collected an amazing number of items for the foodbank, invited parents for the Thriller performance, surpassed our fundraising goal during the Dance-a-Thon and we came together to have fun during Halloween. The “Kindness Matters” campaign is truly being embraced and demonstrated at SJPII.
We look forward to welcoming our parents and guardians at our upcoming parent-teacher conferences scheduled for November 16 from 3-6 and November 17 from 3-5:00 & 5:30-8:00.
Parent-teacher conferences are a perfect opportunity to:
- Discuss your child’s learning and achievement in subjects and learning skills
- Share concerns and questions
- Celebrate successes
- Ask questions related to school classroom operations, communications, instruction and assessment
It is our hope that all families will engage in 21st Century learning along side your children. We use multiple forms of communication to help you stay connected with all the activities that will be taking place at Saint John Paul II Catholic Elementary School.

We are truly engaged in 21st Century learning at SJPII, and we hope you will join us. Thank you for being an active participant and partner in your child’s education!
