Principal's Message, April 2014

Simon Chiu

Congratulations to the men's basketball team for winning the school's fifth state championship! What an amazing experience for our students and the entire SJND community of friends, alumni and fans. I never take for granted the amount of hard work and dedication on the part of our athletes and coaching staff it takes to get to this pinnacle of achievement each year. We are so proud of Coach Don Lippi and our student athletes for their accomplishments.

You should have received an email from the school asking parents to participate in the annual parent survey. This is an important part of feedback for the school, and I ask that each of our parents take the time to complete the survey. Our school's administrative team reviews all of this feedback carefully and makes changes based on the feedback that you give us. Please take the time to fill it out.

On April 9, we host our annual Pilot Welcome Night, where we welcome the newest members of the Pilot family, the Class of 2018. It's always a wonderful evening to see all the eager 8th graders as they prepare to join our school community, as well as parents, both new and returning, as they prepare to walk the high school journey with their child. Visit the Welcome Freshman Class webpage for more information.

During the Easter break, I will be attending the annual convention for the National Catholic Education Association (NCEA), a gathering of more than 8,000 Catholic educators and administrators from across the country. It's a great time to meet my colleagues in Catholic education, to continue to learn about best practices from schools across the country and to renew my commitment to my work.

My continued thanks for your partnership with SJNDin the education of your child. As we approach Easter, we are reminded of the promise of hope and life. That promise is something we work to make real atSJND throughout the year as our dedicated faculty and staff walks along with your children in their educational journey. My best wishes for a blessed Easter holiday.
