5 November Virtual Backpack

We are blown away by all the SJS families who have donated gift cards to the SOAR auction. As promised, any family that donated a gift card would have their students entered in a drawing for an extra recess! The winner of the extra recess was from room 702, so these kiddos will get to enjoy a bonus recess.

Volunteer Opportunities We are in great need of high school and college aged students to work the St. James/Seton School SOAR Development Dinner on November 20th at Creighton Prep High School.

Volunteer needs include: wait staff, check-in/registration/check-out volunteers, raffle ticket sales people. It would be nice to have SJS alumni, but we are grateful for any student that wants to be involved. There is also options for guests attending the event to stay and help clean after or help with check-out following the live auction.
