Principal's Note 1/10/23


Carboard Challenge is Friday for Grades 5-8

Students design and create all kinds of things. Some students work in teams. Some work individually. Everyone uses cardboard.

Students in grades 5-8 may come to school in their PE uniforms for the Cardboard Challenge. If they have SJB Spirit Wear gear, they may wear spirit wear for the Cardboard Challenge.

The Carboard Challenge will take place in the gym on Friday, Jan. 13, from 8:30 until 10:30 am.

No utility knives. No paint. No phones.

Scissors and tape are OK. 

Thank you, Mr. Fry, once again, for agreeing to haul off the cardboard for recycling.

Dismissal will be at 12 noon on Friday, Jan. 13.

Catholic Schools Week Begins January 30

During Catholic Schools Week, we recognize and celebrate Catholic-school families, students, teachers, staff -- and all the ways that Catholic schools enrich lives. We will have activities and themes planned for the week, including an 8th grade-hosted sock hop, service project, spirit-wear day, roll out of bed and read day, pizza lunch, free-throw contest, and Bingo on Friday night.

In next week's Principal's Note, we will have more information about Catholic Schools Week and a steel-drum instructor's one-week residency at SJB in February.
