Dear Friends of Pope John Paul II High School,
Beginning in 2004 and continuing through to our Opening Day on September 7, 2010, hundreds of community volunteers and donors tirelessly worked to establish Pope John Paul II High School. Enthusiastic support came from many directions--individuals, Catholic parishes and K-8 schools, the Archdiocese of Seattle, Saint Martin's University, Saint Martin's Abbey, St. Placid Priory, the Sisters of Providence, local businesses and regional foundations.
This overwhelming dedication and support is testimony to the strong desire and great need for a Catholic secondary educational option in our community. It motivates us daily to make certain that the School's mission and vision are fully realized in the coming years.
During JPII's early years, we anticipate steady growth in enrollment. As we progress toward our enrollment capacity, it will take the continued commitment of the greater community to meet our students' need for financial aid and to bridge the significant gap between tuition and operational costs.
In many ways, our first students are already demonstrating that we can count on them to make a significant difference in the future of our communities. They are excelling in academics, assuming leadership roles within the School, embracing service opportunities and serving as JPII's best ambassadors.
Your gift today will help ensure that JPII has the resources to educate our students for a lifetime of courageous leadership and service for the common good. Indeed, your leadership and generosity will develop the next generation of servant leaders and create a legacy that will extend far into the future.
