SJB Sends Seven Boxes of Books To St. Camillus Pantry

Thank you, SJB families, for your contributions of pre-school books. We sent five boxes to the St. Camillus Pantry last week. The pantry said the faces of the kids lit up when they saw the selection of books available. Thank you to Mrs. Flynn for driving the books to the pantry and to Mrs. May for sorting and categorizing all of the books.

Look for Budget & Tuition Letter Next Week

Look for a letter next week from the pastor about tuition and the school budget. Tuition has increased $200 per year on average over the past five years, and the tuition rate for Catholic families has remained about $1,000 lower than it has been for non-Catholic families. In order to continue to receive that lower rate, the Parish Verification/Parish Assistance Request all-in-one form must be completed and returned to the school office. Otherwise, the non-Catholic rate will be charged.


SJB Camp Payment Due

SJB Camp has a few openings left.

Also, all camp balances are due by Friday, June 2.
