Wonderful weather for field day and eating lunch outside! We're so thankful the rain looks like it's waiting until tomorrow. Students and staff are enjoying the mild temperatures and sunshine as we enjoy our end of the year activities!
Serve Day success! SHOJ students participated in our annual Serve Day in partnership with Catholic Charities of Northeast Ks. Students created care packages for people in need. From welcome home packages to help people moving into new homes, to food and hygiene packages with essentials, students spent time in service to others. We would like to especially thank our 8th grade graduates whose proceeds from the Cardinal Carnival earlier this year provided many of the items used in these packages. To learn more, go to https://catholiccharitiesks.org.
Special thanks to Shawnee Police Department Community Outreach Officers for presenting to our 5th, 6th and 7th graders about how to stay safe and out of trouble with technology this summer.
Class of 2022 you are CALLED! So proud of you all. Make us proud. Come visit often.
Field day lunch will be cheeseburgers & chips. Milk will be available for $.30 for students who choose to bring a lunch from home.
School of Faith visited and recorded a Rosary Meditation for their App/podcast with the Class of 2022. It brought it full circle after writing their own meditations which can be found on our website. It will likely be used in June - just need to listen for it each day! Sign up at HolyFamilySchool.com or find the app in the App Store. God bless you class of 2022! Never stop praying The Rosary.
What a treat - Mr. Chapman made his special pizza crusts and the staff got to make their own pizza for lunch today.
Less than two weeks out from graduation, eighth graders took a field trip back to kindergarten. They asked thought-provoking questions of these sweet young souls like, “Describe a great day. What are you doing?” Their answers? “Going to church.” “Playing with my mom and dad.” “Seeing God.” Another question, “What makes you awesome?” Answer, “My jump roping.” It is often these simple joys that have the most profound impact on our souls.
Mrs. Caton’s class took a trip to Mexico on Cinco de Mayo. What a fun trip. Individual pictures posted separately on FB.
