ON TO THE FOURTH

It has been three weeks since the Superintendent announced that St. Margaret Regional School will be reconfigured to become part of St. John Paul II High School and St. Francis Xavier Preparatory School as one, Pre-K-12 Cape Catholic school. All of us in Catholic schools are saddened when change involves loss such as the SMRS community is experiencing, and as such, since this announcement, our goal has been to welcome and embrace the SMRS students and families in a pastoral and considerate manner. We have hosted SMRS middle school students for SFXP visit days and conducted two open house events exclusively for SMRS parents. Going forward, I am confident that Cape Catholic education can be strengthened as a result of this strategic change. I invite you to contact me anytime if you have questions or comments.

Despite the last gasp of winter weather, we now enter the fourth quarter, begin the regular season of spring sports, and make final preparations for Auction 2018.

We hope to see you on Saturday, April 7 for a fun and important evening to benefit St. John Paul II High School & St. Francis Xavier Preparatory School. ‘Soar and Roar 2018’ will be held at Oyster Harbors Club and feature professional auctioneer Justin Manning. This event is our major fundraising event of the year, and we hope to exceed last year’s record net returns of $77,000. The school counts on you as Annual Fund donors and Auction participants to provide the excellent programs our students experience.  Thank you in advance for your generosity.

On Sunday, April 8, please join the entire school community for the second annual Community Mass, held each year on Divine Mercy Sunday. The school’s combined choir will provide sacred music, students will assist at Mass, and Rev. Floyd, School Chaplain, will celebrate the Mass. The Community Mass will take place at St. Francis Xavier Church at 11 A.M.

The last day of school has been set for Friday, June 15, 2018. Our tentative “first day of classes” for the 2018-2019 school year will be Tuesday, August 28, 2018. You will receive the 2018-2019 calendar before Spring recess.

Thank you for all you do for St. John Paul II High School and St. Francis Xavier Preparatory School.
