Givetober is HERE! Let’s see what we can achieve as a school to make this event a success! Any contribution to the SOAR dinner in the form of a gift card, silent auction item, or monetary donation made by October 31st will help us to attain a $2,000 matching gift. We have raised $1,127 over the past week! A huge thanks to all of those who have participated in the giving so far. Ten more days to raise the remaining $873 and achieve that matching gift!
How else can you help our largest fundraiser of the year to be successful?
SO MANY WAYS!!!

If you purchased from the Amazon wishlist and you want to be acknowledged for your contribution, please send Mrs. Howard a quick message. Many of the donations from Amazon have been delivered without a donor name attached. We don’t want to miss anyone, so please let us know! Please know we are thankful for your generosity.
Good Neighbors It’s a goal for the school to be a good neighbor to those families who live near the school. Certainly, living near an elementary school can have its share of challenges. Please have patience and understanding as you park and interact in the neighborhood. We want to demonstrate the Catholic values that run through the SJS community. Contact Mr. Kelly should you have any questions. Thanks for all you do.
