Calendar Change for Christmas Vacation

There will be no school on Monday and Tuesday, Dec. 20 & 21. 

This is a change in the SJB school calendar

After meeting with Cardinal Gregory, Kelly Branaman, secretary of Catholic Schools for the Archdiocese of Washington, sent a message to Catholic schools to take an extra day of vacation as a reward for the hard work and perseverance of teachers, students, and families throughout the pandemic.

After a discussion on Monday night with members of the SJB School Advisory Board, the school will make both Monday and Tuesday, December 20 & 21, into Christmas-vacation days.

Save the Date, Dec. 4, for Santa

Mark your calendars for Saturday, December 4, from 10 am to 12 noon  as Santa returns to SJB. Check photos with Santa off your list and enjoy time with the SJB community outside over hot cocoa, coffee, and a continental breakfast. Tickets go on sale on Friday and can be purchased electronically.

Breakfast With Santa is a fun event for children and adults of all ages. Grandparents, extended family, and SJB alumni have attended this traditional event.

The Home School Association is busy planning for Santa. Please consider signing up to volunteer here as there is a lot to do before and the day of the event. There is a job to fit any volunteer. Even a small amount of your time is welcome and appreciated. Thank you!
