Dear SKS families,

A Season of Thanks

Thank you!  I say this with a most sincere heart. On the eve of the Thanksgiving holiday our SKS school community has much to be grateful for. Thanks to efforts of the entire school community we have worked together to stay healthy, and in my eyes, exceeded our expectations to keep our community healthy and safe. We have stayed “in” school and that has been no small accomplishment.

At a time when the world, our country, and many individuals struggle and suffer in many ways during this pandemic, we are fortunate that we have our health and each other.  The early settlers and Native Americans got this holiday right, it is a time to reflect and express gratitude for our many blessings. We do so with a humble and grateful heart. I wish you and your families continued health, joy, and peace. Enjoy this special season of gratitude with your loved ones.

I took the following from an email post from the editor of the Main Line newsletter:

             “No longer forward nor behind, I look in hope or fear;
              But grateful, take the good I find, the best of now and here.”


As you can see in the photos above, the Ries family thanked our faculty and staff in their front yard with our latest lawn sign compliments of our Home and School board. You can drive all over Wayne and our neighboring towns and see the signs everywhere displayed by proud SKS families! Other photos show our students showing their civic pride, especially on the Wayne Veteran’s Day remembrance with our SKS band playing the national anthem and 8th grader Luca DeMarco reciting the pledge of allegiance.  The Kindergarten learned about elections by voting for their favorite Letter Person! A special moment for our school was the Blue Ribbon School of Excellence Award ceremony.  Also, a special thank you goes to First Resource Bank in Wayne, PA for their $7,500 donation to SKS through the EITC program.

 Upcoming Home and School Events

Despite the curveball the pandemic throws at us, our ambitious and creative Home and School Board continues to find ways to engage our community and keep us together. I am so grateful and proud of what our Home and School Board has done to bring the spirit of togetherness to our school community.

Santa’s Visits to SKS homes are scheduled for 12/1, 12/2 and 12/3. Santa’s schedule is already full, I hope everyone enjoys the visit. Oh what fun!!

SKS’s  first Live Nativity will be on Sunday December 6th from 5:30 pm to 7:30 pm. This is a Drive Through event and is a going to be a very special one. For more information read the flyer here.

A Gingerbread House making event will be held post-Thanksgiving as well. Details will be forthcoming

Stay tuned after the holidays and into the New Year for upcoming information on the virtual SKS Family Rosary


Tuition Assistance from BLOCS

For any family who is experiencing financial difficulty and needs help this year for paying tuition, there are ways in which we can assist you through the Educational Income Tax Credit program (EITC). This provides tuition assistance to anyone that applies, shows need, and qualifies. Also if there was a sudden loss in income due to the pandemic or your work situation there is emergency funding as well. Please contact Mr. Tosti at school to discuss your situation in complete confidence. This  year we assisted two dozen students from 20 families with tuition assistance in this way, giving out over $120,000 in tuition assistance.
