HoopEd Offers Camp During School Vacations
HoopEd is proud to announce it is partnering with St. John the Baptist to provide year-round sports camps for students during off school hours. The 2019-2020 school calendar has several days off including winter and spring breaks where the kids are off but parents still need to work. HoopEd will fill the void by providing safe and fun sports camps for boys and girls of all ages. Why spend this off time at home on the computer or watching TV when you can be exercising, improving skills, and having a great time?
HoopEd 9:00 am to 3:00 pm with after care available until 5:30 pm on the following SJB no-school days:
- January 20
- February 17

Through the SJB Library, the school provides access to BrainPOP, World Book, Scholastic Go!, CultureGrams, SIRS Discoverer, and IXL Math and Language Arts. There are two files -- one for home access and one for school access. World Book is an online encyclopedia for the children, parents, and teachers. SIRS is part of the ProQuest research database, and CultureGrams provides information about the 50 states and places in the world. BrainPOP provides academic enrichment in all subjects.
