Thanks from Ms. Moore and the People of West Virginia -- Many thanks for all your generous and wonderful donations for the people of Wyoming County, West Virginia. We arrived on Sunday afternoon and unloaded the van and the trailer. Winter items were set aside for November and comforters were stored for Christmas. Sheets were sized and clothes separated boys from girls. All the clothes and sheets along with miscellaneous household items, toys, games, towels, toiletries, and blankets were placed on the shelves of the Itman Food Bank. By the time we left all was ready for distribution this Friday, June 15. Itman provides supplemental food, clothing, and household items to about 500 families on the third Friday of each month. For the last 13 years it has been run by Kathy Simonse and her husband, Arne. Kathy Simonse taught music at SJB from 1974-1999...she is the ‘founder’ of the SJB Spring Show! Thank you once again for your help.
Where will SJB go this Summer? Take a picture wearing your SJB spirit wear this summer. Send the picture to email@example.com and look for your picture in the front hallway in September.
Volunteer As a Room Parent for 2018-19 -- One great way to ease into a leadership role at SJB is by becoming a room parent. It's also one of the best ways to get to know other parents. To volunteer, complete the signup form. Contact our room parent coordinator, Jeanine Regan, at firstname.lastname@example.org to let her know that you are interested in becoming a room parent.
Be a Buddy Family -- Please see the flyer to sign up to be a Buddy Family. This is a great way to welcome and support a new SJB family. Thank you to Brian and Hilary Lappin (Colin 3rd, Ava 1st) for coordinating our Buddy Family program.
CYO Track and Field
CYO offers Track and Field as a spring sport. SJB Athletics does not have a program, but interested SJB Parishioners and Students should consider competing for neighboring parish St. Andrew the Apostle which has a strong track and field program and welcomes SJB Jaguars.
Please contact the following for more information:
Hugh McKenna – email@example.com
David Luksic – firstname.lastname@example.org
SJB CYO Baseball
This season CYO has determined based on parish feedback that there will not be enough teams to form a league so SJB will not offer CYO baseball this year. Our recommendation is that you sign your players up with BAA’s recreational baseball league which is very comparable and close by. When registering, add SJB as the carpool and team preference and BAA will make every attempt to place SJB players together which is a fun experience for the players and a logistical convenience for coaches and parents. Contact BAA Baseball Director, Molly Surden email@example.com.
Want to Coach?
In order to take on the role of coach or assistant coach, you must be compliant with the Child Protection Policy. All volunteers/parents who have contact with children must be Virtus compliant. Please visit the SJB Athletics Virtus page to review the process:
