Principal's Note 5/11/21

Consider Becoming a Room Parent Next Year

SJB needs new room-parent volunteers to keep the community informed and active.

The room parent's role is to serve as a communication liaison between the classroom teacher and the classroom parents. There's at least one room parent for each grade. Room parents help to communicate to the class parents before special events like Halloween and Breakfast with Santa.

If you want to volunteer and aren't sure how, becoming a room parent can be a great way to start. Most of the communication is directed by the school room-parent coordinator, Mrs. Jeanine Regan (Madelyn 4th), who has been the coordinator for several years. We're happy to report that Mrs. Mary Lombardo (Jonathan 6th, Theodore 3rd) will be the room-parent coordinator for the 2021-22 school year.

If you are interested in becoming a room parent for your child's class next year, please write your name and the grade you are interested in serving on the Room Parent Sign-Up Form.

If you have questions, contact Mrs. Jeanine Regan at
