When and Where Do We Get Our Wreaths?

Wreaths and evergreen products will be delivered sometime on Wednesday. If they are delivered before dismissal, we will have a sign as you come into the parking lot and you are welcome to pick your orders up in front of the Lyon Center. Wreaths will also be distributed at Drop Off and Pick UP on Thursday, December 6 in front of the Lyon Center.  If you still wish to purchase items, we have some extras available. -- Maria Hippchen

The Lion King Comes to SJB This Spring


 Our 2019 spring play production will be The Lion King, Jr. Mr. Shillingford, our art teacher, announced the name of the play to students in 7th-8th grades and then to all of the students on Monday afternoon. The dates of the play are Thursday and Friday, April 11-12, at 7:30 pm in the SJB Gym. Auditions will take place the week of Jan. 14. Mr. Shillingford will provide more information to classes in the next two weeks. 

Thursday is TAG Day for Holy Family

Students may come to school out of uniform on Thursday, Dec. 6, with a suggested donation of $1 or $2 to help a struggling Catholic elementary school remain open. Money from the Tag Day will go to Holy Family Catholic School in Hillcrest Heights, which has been "in consultation" with the Archdiocese due to a lack of funds. The SJB Student Council is promoting the Tag Day to help other Catholic school students save their school.


 Open House Was a Success

Thank you, parent volunteers, for your help as tour guides for the Open House on Monday night. It was a good showing and an overall success. The next Open House is set for Wednesday, Jan. 9, at 6:30 pm. Please tell your friends that SJB is now Open for Applications. If they have questions, there's lots of information on the SJB Admissions Page.

SJB Band Concert is Thursday, Dec. 13

The daytime concert will start at 2 pm, and the nighttime concert will begin at 7:30 pm.
