Summer Uniforms Return on Friday

Students may start coming to school in summer uniforms on Friday, April 1.

Starting Friday, students may wear shorts on regular uniform days, and they may wear PE shorts and PE t-shirts, without  warmup pants and warmup jackets, on PE days.

Please refer to the SJB Uniform Code, pages 26-30 of the Parent-Student Handbook, for guidance. 

We wish to remind families that SJB is enforcing the school uniform code. With regular SJB uniforms, students wear navy sweaters or quarter-zip fleece sweaters, not sweatshirts. With PE uniforms, students wear black or white sneakers with some allowable black/white, grey or silver, but not flashy neon colors.

Puppet Theater Comes to School on Tuesday

Students in all grades will get to see a puppet show performed by the Blue Sky Puppet Theater on Tuesday morning. Cultural arts will continue with a steel-drum band performance at SJB on Monday, May 2.

6th Grade Off to Outdoor Education

The 6th grade left this morning for a 2-night outdoor-education trip to the Skycroft Conference Center in Middletown, Md. They'll have three days of outdoor and team-building activities with 6th graders from another Montgomery County Catholic school. The outdoor-education trip is a tradition for the 6th grades of SJB and St. Bartholomew School in Bethesda.

Next week, the 7th grade finally will have its outdoor-education trip to Skycroft. The 7th grade students were unable to go last year due to the pandemic.
