Dear Salesian Families,
Welcome to everyone! We had a wonderful first week of school. Students were all smiles and ready to see their friends and meet the new students in their class. Parents were all around campus visiting with each other, taking pictures and sharing the joy of seeing their children meet their teacher as they entered their new classroom.
I encourage you to keep updated on all our school events and to get involved as much as possible. This will give you an opportunity to meet new families and to share your enthusiasm and joy with others. We move forward as a united force with a stronger focus on what God has planned out for us, meeting and exceeding our goals for this new school year.
A special and warm welcome to all our new families. Please do not hesitate to ask about anything that might not be clear to you. Thank you for choosing Salesian for your children.
Salesian is much more than just the name of our school. Salesian is a worldwide movement to help young people in need. Don Bosco’s vision was to save as many kids as he could. When it became clear to him that his educational method worked exceptionally well, he trained others and sent them out to carry that message of love to children all over the world.
We at Salesian have a set of Student Learning Expectations (SLEs) which draw from the charism and traditions passed on to us by our founder Don Bosco and our co-foundress, Mother Mazzarello. These expectations help trace the path we want our students to follow and be able to develop as they grow through their eighth-grade year and on to high school. This allows them to continue to build upon the foundation they received with us, at Salesian.
It is our goal to have these expectations woven into our Salesian system of education according to the heart of Don Bosco. It is our aim to see our students grow in these values of Reason: As lifelong learners, Religion: As Christ-centered individuals and Loving Kindness: As global citizens. Let us continue to gave high expectations for our young people, and to encourage them with the desire to aim higher all the time.
