  • Principal Joe Noonan and Art Teacher Carol Szymanski with Claire, Vincent and Robert

    Art Department Restores Sacred Heart of Jesus

    Recently the Art Department of St. John XXII College Preparatory School restored a Sacred Heart of Jesus statue which will soon take a permanent place on campus.  Principal Joe Noonan has quite a history with the statue and brought it to Art Teacher, Carol Szymanski, earlier this year, hoping it could be repaired.  However, with school’s decision to go fully remote for several days early in the second semester, followed closely by a winter freeze, the project was put on hold.  During the Easter season, the time was right for Mrs. Szymanski, along with three upper-level art students, to begin the work that would span several weeks. Their enthusiasm for the project went well beyond the needed repairs, and a beautiful restoration was completed just before classes dismissed for the summer.

  • Robotics Team Qualifies for State!

    Congratulations to the SJ23 Robotics team for qualifying for the state robotics competition! In the picture from left to right: John Sutton, Gray Podolak, Isabela Cardenas Maldonado, and Gavin Blumenthal. The students will be competing in San Antonio on June 16th and 17th.
