Thank you to ChildSight® for providing free in-school vision screenings and new prescription eyeglasses to our BJP students. This program fills a critical health services gap for children with limited to no access to quality basic health or vision care services.
Each student needing glasses selects their own frames from a wide variety of trendy styles—after all, if kids don’t like their glasses, they are not likely to wear them! Their new eyeglasses will be delivered to BJP within one to two weeks.
The first day back from Christmas Break marked the thirteenth annual Renew the Spirit of Camp all-school retreat. Students spent the day in their camp advisories reminiscing about the good times at Fairfield University, the many activities at camp, the growth they made during the summer, and the goals they set for themselves. At Mass, Fr. Ralph Rivera, SJ celebrated the Feast of the Epiphany with the student body. His homily touched on what it means to be wise. Father shared with our students being wise is knowing the right thing to do and then doing it. It was a great day to get centered for the rest of the school year.
