“Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.”    Matthew 28: 19 - 20 
Neponset Friends & Families,

What an exciting year it has been at Saint John Paul II Catholic Academy! Your teachers and I have seen you grow so much -- in your actions, in your words, and in your values. You are part of our school community, the Home of the Loleks! And as a Lolek, we know that our journey doesn’t stop when the school year dismisses. Over the summer, we are called to embody the values of Love, Open-Mindedness, Leadership, Engagement, Knowledge, and Spirituality. I can’t tell you how proud we are to see an SJP2CA student over the summer living out the Lolek way: altar serving at mass, being a big buddy at a summer camp, or putting a little extra work in with a tutor to get ready for the next school year.

We started each morning promising to follow the SJP2CA Mission and asking God to provide His guiding grace for us to embody these words:          

  • At SJP2CA, we grew in faith and knowledge, educating our minds and shaping our hearts.   

  • We come from a safe, nurturing, and culturally diverse environment in the heart of DORCHESTER!   

  • We are problem solvers, leaders, and peacemakers -- practicing the essential skills to be successful at the next level.

  • The world is a better place with Loleks living in it!   It is your responsibility to show compassion, love, unity, and peace to others wherever you may go as a global citizen!     

In the last two verses of Matthew that I referenced, Jesus instructs His disciples to carry on the work He began in Israel. They are to go throughout the world, sharing the word of God to “all nations” and spreading the truth of His good works so that everyone may know. The last phrase, “I am with you always, to the end of the age” is an important message that Saint John Paul shares with us in his own words, “simply step out fearlessly, knowing that I am with you”.  No matter where He leads us, we will never have to doubt that His presence is with us.

Remember this summer the words of our original Lolek:  “The ultimate test of your greatness is the way you treat every human being.”   I love each of you very much and will keep the Lolek Family in my prayers!

Happy Summer SJP,

Mr. C

Neponset's Amazing Art Show
Our art teacher, Ms. Drielak, put together an amazing art show to showcase all of the hard work our students have been doing in art class. All students had work displayed and wrote artist statements telling about the reasons, artistic decisions, and techniques used to create one of their pieces. Students who visited the art show worked to complete a scavenger hunt to find different pieces and had the opportunity to write "art mail" to other students to compliment their work. Thank you to Ms. D for the amazing show!
Field Day for 2.9 - Grade 2!
Our younger students had a great day at Garvey Park for their field day! Thank you to Mr. Hussey, Mr. Hegarty, and all of our parent volunteers who helped make this fun tradition a huge success! Students in Grades 3-7 will have their field day on June 11.
