Thank You, Volunteers

On the last day of school, Friday, June 15, the SJB faculty will present our parent volunteers with small gifts of appreciation, and we will host a reception for our parent volunteers right after the 10 am Mass. 

We hope that our parent volunteers will join us for the reception outside of the Library.

We realize that our way of saying thank you might seem small when some of you have given so much. Please know that our gratitude to you is truly great. Your service improves kids' lives.

Volunteer As a Room Parent for 2018-19

Contact our room parent coordinator, Jeanine Regan, at jeanine.regan@sjbsilverspring.org to let her know that you are interested in becoming a room parent.

Be a Buddy Family 

Please see the flyer to sign up to be a Buddy Family. This is a great way to welcome and support a new SJB family. Thank you to Brian and Hilary Lappin (Colin 3rd, Ava 1st) for coordinating our Buddy Family program.
