Greeting Middle School Families and Students,
We are off to a great start in our first full week of middle school.  I am so excited for the wonderful learning we will be doing this year. Now that we have a schedule, we are working on our routines and expectations. We welcome our new Math and Religion teacher, Ms. Villanova, this week. Middle school began MAP testing this week and will continue for the next few Fridays. Please make sure your student comes to school with a healthy snack, proper supplies and ready to learn.Please be sure to check my website for homework.  If you have any questions please email me at kroell@sjp2ca.org

Dear God, thank you for the gift of our Catholic faith. 
Help us always treasure it as a way to be closer to you.
Thank you for the opportunity to learn in a Catholic School. 
Help our school to be a place of learning with our hearts as well as our minds.
Through your guidance, we can enter our school to learn about you and go forth from school each day to serve you and one another.  Amen
