Feast of the Transfiguration of the Lord


August has arrived and things have already begun to pick up considerably. Believe it or not, our first day of school is almost exactly two weeks away!This is the time to start getting your children back into a routine, purchase school supplies and uniforms, finish required and optional summer reading and other projects.


A few members of our faculty and staff were blessed to attend a retreat in the Redwood Valley outside Ukiah at Holy Transfiguration Monastery. Thank for your prayers as it was a very fruitful experience for those who attended. I am happy to report that Brother Gideon, who suffered a very dangerous fall in May, is not only back on his feet but also left us all in the dust during a hike! Please keep our faculty and staff in your prayers as we have our first series of back-to-school meetings on Monday and Wednesday of next week.


A big thank you to my wife, Allison Bertolini, for organizing and managing a very successful uniform swap over the weekend. Thank you also to the ever-helpful Sonia Campos-Balderas for providing much-needed assistance, and to all of the families who donated uniforms! If you missed the uniform swap, you can still browse and pick up any used uniforms until 4:00 P.M. on this Friday, August 9th.

Aug 17 (SA) Workday – 8:00 A.M. – 12:00 P.M.– Back-to-School Night & BBQ Dinner 5:00 P.M. – 8:00 P.M. – Mandatory Meeting


Don’t forget to mark your calendars and make time to attend the first of our two mandatory meetings for the year on Saturday, August 17th: our Back-to-School Night BBQ from 5:00 – 8:00 P.M. A big thank you to new Board President, Sean Warner, and the other members of the board for taking on preparation and serving of food and drink for this event. We will have a dinner from 5:00 – 6:00, followed by a short presentation about the upcoming school year, and visits to the classroom. Besides combining the Back-to-School Picnic with Back-to-School Night, we are also introducing another new procedure this year that will hopefully make the first day back to school a bit less stressful for parents, students, and teachers. Please bring your school supplies and other required materials to Back-to-School Night so that we can have them placed in classrooms and the office BEFORE the first day of school.


Hopefully you will have also attended our very important August Saturday workday that morning from 8:00 A.M. – 12:00 P.M. We will be putting what we hope to be the final touches on things to have the school all ready to go for the first day of school. Please make time to attend!


Important Reminder


All students must be up to date on vaccinations/immunizations required by the state of California. Please provide updated records to the office ASAP!All students must be in compliance by the start of school on August 21st. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the office.


Teacher Wishlists


A little more than two weeks until school begins. Teachers will be spending this week getting their classrooms ready and they would love some donated items for their classroom.
