Dear Salesian Family,
Happy Holy Advent to you and Merry Christmas! I greet you with good tidings and cheer as we close 2016. We have guided our students through their midyear assessments, performed our Christmas Program, and decorated our campus to create the spirit of joy and celebration for Jesus's Birthday!!!
Our Salesian family on a world-wide level also prepares during this time to share what is called the yearly STRENNA. It is the annual spiritual plan for the Salesian Congregation presented by Fr. Angel Artimede, the rector major. This spiritual plan is presented in January. We have received the title of the document which I would like to share with you: "We Are Family! Every Home, a School of Life and Love!" The entire focus is on FAMILY and as a Salesian school that supports families and Catholic Education, we are in a primary spot to support, help, and nurture FAMILIES.
Therefore, it is with great joy that we share our plan to provide affordable Catholic education to all families. Our Salesian Finance Board has been busy formulating a plan to provide more families a Catholic Education at Salesian Elementary and Jr. High. With their guidance, we have developed a plan for a very large reduction in tuition and fees! We want to share this tuition plan in more detail at the next All School Parent Meeting scheduled for January 25, 2017 at 7pm. SAVE THE DATE AND PLAN TO ATTEND! Help pass the word to prospective families who are looking for a school and tell them of this great opportunity. A great way to market our school is by word of mouth. Thank you to our Finance team for their service to our school: Katie Davis, Rosemary Anderson, Rich Bregante, Mike Flynn and Judy Alcantara.
Merry Christmas to you!
United in Hope, Love, and Joy
