SJB Summer Camps

If your kids enjoy our after-school science and STEM clubs, they'll love the summer camp coming to SJB from June 25 until August. To find out more about it, check your Gold Folder and go to this website.

SJB will have its traditional one-week Summer Camp from June 18 to June 22. Camp information will go home in the Gold Folder later in the spring.

Spring Play Schedule 

The spring play rehearsal and practice schedule is posted on the school calendar and copied below. Cast members are expected to attend rehearsals based on this cast list and this plan.

Ensemble means everyone, so if a song or scene calls for the ensemble, all cast members are expected to attend.

To find out if you have a rehearsal...

1. check the cast list for your character

2. check the spring play plan to see if your character (or the ensemble) is called for the scene or song that is being rehearsed

Parents, Please Consider Judging Arts & Academics 

Please consider judging the students' science or art projects and presentations on the evening of Tuesday, March 6. The success of our Arts & Academics festival depends on the willingness of outside judges to evaluate students' oral presentations. So far, we've had a small response to our call for judges. If you can help to support this academic effort, please complete the A&A form for judges and send it back to the school office in the Gold Folder.
