Family Roster

Mom & Dad

Mom: Beth, VP, Franchise Operations for Marriott


Dad: Pete, GM of the Sugarland Marriott Hotel

What Makes Them Tick: Going on vacation, to the theater,

the SPA and spending time with their children.


Nash: 10 YO sports fanatic; highly involved in baseball,

football, basketball

Ireland: 5 YO girly-girl; enjoys gymnastics and swimming

School: Both attend Montessori House for Elementary


Firethorne - “[We] LOVE living here. Some of our closest

friends (and our kids friends) live in the neighborhood

too. Great community where you will often find neighbors

helping neighbors just because they are “good people”.

The Scoop: Turkey (Stuffing) Day

Favorite Thanksgiving Dish: “Every Thanksgiving week we travel as a family back to Nebraska where

many aunts, uncles and cousins live. The night before Thanksgiving we all get together at one of the

“aunts” houses, drink wine (the adults that is) and make home-made stuffing for the turkey. It’s Beth’s

grandma’s recipe that continues to be passed down. Usually a 20+ pound turkey as there is typically

a gathering of about 30 of us.”

Thanksgiving Tradition: After the annual 2:00 PM Thanksgiving dinner, weather permitting, their family

enjoys a comingled game of soccer in the backyard with kids and adults. Otherwise, they stay in and

– you guessed it – watch football while playing board games. This group knows how to enjoy their

post-turkey time together!

“Thanksgiving has always been the most important family holiday of the year. It’s the one time we all

come together to celebrate and give thanks for this big, fat, Catholic family!”

Christmas Prep

When They Start: “Sometimes

we start before Thanksgiving

to get it done. With 11

siblings in Beth’s family and

over 25 grandkids each

year we pick names. The

siblings and their spouse;

the kids pick kids names.”

How They Get In

the Christmas Spirit:

“DECORATING our yard!!

LOVE, LOVE…the more

decorations the better…

come on by! 28515 S

Firethorne Rd!”

We would love to feature your family! Each month, one family will be chosen from one of our communities. For more information, email familyfocus@krenekprinting.com.

St. John XXIII Students Named National Merit Semifinalists

On Wednesday, September 13 th , officials of the National Merit Scholarship

Corporation (NMSC) announced the names of approximately 16,000 Semifinalists

in the 63 rd annual National Merit Scholarship Program. St. John XXIII College

Preparatory is pleased to announce two students have been recognized for this

achievement. Seniors Bridget Parmenter and Emily Poux were named National

Merit Semifinalists for 2018. These academically talented high school seniors

have the opportunity to continue in the competition for Finalist standings and

7,500 National Merit Scholarships worth more than $32 million. We applaud the

1.6 million juniors in more than 22,000 high schools across the nation who entered

the 2018 National Merit Scholarship Program by taking the 2016 Preliminary

SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT®), which served as

the initial screening of program entrants. The nationwide pool of Semifinalists,

representing less than one percent of U.S. high school seniors, includes the

highest-scoring entrants in each state. The number of semifinalists in a state is

proportional to the state’s percentage of the national total of graduating seniors.

St. John XXIII Seniors Named National Merit Commended Students For 2018

Timothy Gallic, principal of St. John XXIII College Preparatory, announced today

that Griffin Alexander and Keegan O’Connor have been named Commended

Students in the 2018 National Merit Scholarship Program. A Letter of

Commendation from the school and the National Merit Scholarship Corporation

(NMSC), which conducts the program, will be presented by the principal to these

scholastically talented seniors.

About 34,000 Commended Students throughout the nation are being recognized

for their exceptional academic promise. Although they will not continue in the

2018 competition for National Merit Scholarship awards, Commended Students

place among the top 50,000 scorers of more than 1.6 million students who

entered the 2018 competition by taking the 2016 Preliminary SAT/National

Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT). “The young men and women

being named Commended Students have demonstrated outstanding potential

for academic success,” commented a spokesperson for NMSC. “These students

represent a valuable national resource; recognizing their accomplishments, as

well as the key role their schools play in their academic development, is vital

to the advancement of educational excellence in our nation. We hope that this

recognition will help broaden their educational opportunities and encourage

them as they continue their pursuit of academic success.”

Although we had to make big changes in the wake of Hurricane Harvey,

the St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Catholic School had a successful night raising

money for the school. We danced the night away to live Cuban music

played by the band “Que Nota!” Mr. Gerry Donohue was honored for his

time and dedication to Catholic education. Thank you to our supporters

who attended, sponsored and help plan the event! We appreciate you!

When foster children reach age 18, they are considered independent.

That’s difficult for kids who have been wards of the state, with necessities

arranged by caseworkers with state funds. Now they’ll have to figure out

Fortunately, Child protective Services offers them a program to help

prepare for independence: Preparation for Adult Living (PAL). The year-long
