June 2022 School Counselor Newsletter
Dear St. John Families,
With two weeks left in the school year, we’ve officially hit the final countdown to summer break! It’s been another challenging COVID school year, and yet, I’ve been so impressed by the resiliency our students have demonstrated. And you, parents and caregivers, have no doubt played a pivotal role in your child’s success, so hats off to you, too! Given the number of messages I know the school is sending out this time of year, I’m purposely keeping this newsletter on the shorter end, but if I can be of any assistance to you in the final days of the school year, don’t hesitate to drop by or contact me via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I hope each of you have a very happy and healthy summer vacation and I look forward to reconnecting in the fall!
