School News


Due to a water line break we lost much of our tissue paper, tissue shreds, ribbon, bows, new small, medium and large laundry baskets we use for SOAR.  If you would like to help, send any of these items to school office marked SOAR and we will certainly put them to good use.


The SOAR Committee is working hard putting baskets together.  We are in desperate need of auction items, gift cards to restaurants, gift cards to popular places in Omaha, Hobby Lobby, Michaels, Target and Walmart to finish them off.

The only group of students with large enough numbers to create two teams was the 7th grade boys. This means that no other grade, or group, has to have evaluations. Due to the uncertain circumstances of how basketball is going to look, and the guidelines PAL is working to adopt for basketball season, we are postponing these evaluations until Oct. 11th from 1:00-2:30 at Roncalli.  The only group that will need to attend is the 7th grade boys and they will receive a separate email regarding this process. Sorry for any confusion.
If you have any questions email or call Sammie Becker at sjsad17@gmail.com or 402-661-9862. Thank you for your patience and understanding.
SJS now has an exclusive relationship with Digiorgio’s Sportswear for our school uniform sweatshirts.  So, if you are in need of a new sweatshirt you can go to their website to order:


Digiorgio will then process those orders and even deliver to SJS once a week.  If you need to check the sizes you can stop in the school office as we have samples of all the sizes available.  Before making any new uniform purchase it is always best to check the school uniform policy.

The only sweatshirt allowed during the school day is a uniform sweatshirt.  Spirit wear is not allowed.  Thank you.
The HSA is planning on treating the teachers to a meal again this year during Parent/Teacher conferences. For safety reasons are planning to cater in boxed meals this year. Please send donations to the office addressed to Jolene Fitzpatrick or by Pay Pal to businessoffice@sjsomaha.org. Any questions please email jolfitz@gmail.com.  Thank you!
Beginning Monday, October 5, students can begin ordering B lunch from the menu.
