A Thanksgiving Greeting from Mrs. Montgomery


Hello SPJ Community,

Thank you for the successful beginning to our “crazy” 2020 school year!  Because of your conscientious efforts to keep our school healthy, we have completed 15 weeks of “in school” learning!  The thoughts and dreams we had for our school in August have come true. We are open, and plan to remain open for 5-day, in person learning when we return from break.  Your help is greatly appreciated and your efforts are applauded!  Stay diligent and keep communicating as we finish out 2020 and move into 2021.

There is so much to be thankful for as I reflect on this school year.  I am grateful for the support of the parents.  Your trust and confidence in us is a daily reminder of why we are here and what is essential.  Thank you parents who work hard and advocate to be a partner in your child’s education, safety and well-being.  Thank you for sharing your most valuable ones with us!

I am grateful for our volunteers and parent groups although small this year due to COVID-19, our helpers are reliable and enthusiastically provide so much for our school.  Thank you!

Everyday I am grateful for the teachers, teacher aides, support staff, lunch clerks, custodians, school counselor, and nurse.  This caring staff care about student success and go above and beyond to make sure that great things happen in SS. Philip and James School.  Thank you for making a difference.  

And without a doubt I am most thankful for Father Kevin and Mrs. Floom.  Father unknowingly has become my spiritual advisor.  His prayer and support for our school is impressive.  Mrs. Floom, our school secretary, is truly a superhero.  She can answer calls, send emails, bandage wounds, wipe tears (sometimes mine),  tell a joke and greet guests all at the same time.  Thank you for helping me through this first year!

I would not be successful without all of you! SS. Philip and James’ community is strong.  Your efforts are noticed and greatly appreciated!

I would like to wish all of you and your families a healthy, relaxing and happy Thanksgiving break!

Mrs. Montgomery
SS. Philip and James Principal
