This Sunday is the Fourth Sunday of Easter. The Gospel speaks to us of how Christ is the gate to eternal life. He has come for one purpose and that is to give us life and have it more abundantly! Christ promises us that if we prioritize our relationship with Him before anything else, we will be saved and “come in and go out and find pasture.” This means we will be well taken care of! What a promise! We pray that SBS is always able to hear the voice of Christ as He takes us through this journey of life.
Parents, we are making strides this year as we continue with our distance learning. Our students are putting in the effort, work and dedication they have been known to do since the beginning of the year and they are continuing to grow and mature in their faith. Thank you for your continued support in their education.
As you may know, during this crisis things may change from week to week and I been happy to hear that our great state of California is looking forward to getting back to normalcy at some point during the summer. Let’s continue to hope in Christ that we will see each other sooner than later and that our students will be back on campus, playing, learning and practicing their faith.
Thank you to all our families that have joined us the last several Wednesdays for our school mass. Fr. Toribio appreciates the participation and dedication of our students to stay close to Christ through our blessed community. We will continue to attend mass through our google meet forum with the code sbsprayer. Come and join us!
Our Talent Showcase deadline is this Friday. Please encourage and help your child perform his/her talent and create a video. This talent can be anything! From cooking, to dancing, to gardening, whatever your child is good at. Once recorded please email it directly to my email firstname.lastname@example.org
Fr. Toribio’s birthday is May 4th! We would like to compile your family videos wishing him a happy b-day. Please record your family saying simply “Happy birthday Fr. Toribio!” I will then put it all together and send it to him on behalf of our entire school. Please email me the video directly. We may also have the opportunity to stop by the church in a surprise “drive thru” party. If this does happen (contingent on Fr. Toribio’s schedule) we will let you know by tomorrow Thursday April 30th.
Great news! Our Church is transforming and making strides in the way they communicate. You may start receiving emails directly from Fr. Toribio and his staff sharing the great things that are happening around the Parish along with important information and spiritual direction on how to grow in our faith. Please look out for them and stay informed.
The church is handing out free lunches Mon, Wed-Fri between the hours of 11:30-1pm. If you or someone you know would benefit from some free lunches, please “drive-thru” the parish and they will hand you some nice meals.
Preregistration has been extended until April 30th!! Please take advantage of this for the upcoming 2020-2021 school year! Our school office will remain open from 8am-12pm Mon-Thur. Please stop by and register, make payments and take care of any other business you may have. I urge all parents to come in at this time and register as it is an opportune time to do so. God is always good and with the very hope that this crisis will pass soon we continue to plan for our great school for next year. Remember you must register before April 30th to received $25 off. Pre-K parents please make sure you register before April 30th as we do have quite a waiting list for next year, but we want to give you first priority. If you are having problems visiting us please email me or Mrs. Duran.
