I’m pleased to tell you that our first week opened smoothly and that, despite surfing the heat wave, we are off to a positive, promising start to the year. You would be proud to see the ‘old-fashioned’ virtues of respect, courtesy, and cooperation that students Pre K-12 have demonstrated all week.
This week, 68 St. Margaret students, 246 SFXP students, and 245 St. John Paul II students (total=559) began their school year with us. I am proud and grateful that, in a period and region of multiple free school options, you find value and have confidence in the habits, values, and vision that we share with your children. I know that your investment pays off.
I invite you to come to the school for two meaningful occasions in the weeks ahead.
First, come worship with us.
- St. Margaret Regional School Masses are celebrated every Friday, 8 AM, at St. Margaret of Scotland Church. Parents, grandparents, and friends are always invited. Special note: The Most Rev. Edgar da Cunha, S.D.V., Bishop of Fall River, will celebrate Mass on Friday, September 21.
- The St. Francis Xavier Preparatory School and St. John Paul II High School Opening Mass will be celebrated at St. Francis Xavier Church on Friday, September 7 at 10:00 AM. Come open the year in praise and thanksgiving with us. Parents, grandparents, and friends are invited.
Second, see the school and meet administrators, staff members, and teachers.
- Come to St. Margaret “Parent Open House” on Wednesday, September 5 at 6 PM. You will meet administrators, teachers, and see the new classrooms and programs.
- SFXP and JPII parents are invited to “Meet the Faculty” Mini-Class Night on Thursday, September 20 starting at 7 PM. Mini-Class Night is a favorite evening where parents follow their child’s class schedule, meet teachers, and attend courses.
Finally, meet new families, renew old acquaintances, and support the school at Oktoberfest, our fall fun-raiser, and fund-raiser. Sponsorship opportunities are available, tickets are cheap, and the beer will be cold. I hope to see you at Cape Cod Beer on October 27!
Thank you for all you do for St. Margaret Regional School, St. Francis Xavier Preparatory School, and St. John Paul II High School.
