Christmas Showcase is Tonight!

Everyone in the community is invited to join us for our annual Christmas Showcase.( Nov 29 at 6:30 pm.)  Saint JP II students hard work and talent will be showcased in the area performance art, music and the visual arts. Bring your family to enjoy festive Christmas music,beautiful student artworks will be for sale and Santa may even sneak in. Refreshments will be served. This should be a wonderful evening for all.

We hope you all had a great Thanksgiving!  As we approach the end of the 2nd quarter I just wanted to remind you that all families need to be at the half way point regarding their tuition, parent hours and fundraising obligations before Christmas break.  If families are short of the halfway point, that amount will be applied in January through Facts Management.  Also, please remind your student that they need to be at the halfway point with their Solidarity hours before break as well.

Lastly, please be sure to invite family and friends to the Live Nativity this Sunday, Monday or Tuesday from 6pm to 8pm.

Proud Texan Scholarship

on behalf of The Law Offices of Hilda Sibrian. We would like to offer them a rewarding scholarship opportunity.

Current high school seniors and students enrolled in colleges across Texas are eligible.
More information can be found here and also here:

There is one prize available in the total of $2,500. For this contest, students should create a 30-120 second video and a brief essay about “what motivates you to continue your education, who has helped you along this journey and what do you do or plan to do to better the state of Texas?” The contest is open now and the deadline is December 30th, 2018.
