Thank You, Families, For Your Help With Drop-Off & Pick-Up
You have helped the school by making drop-off and pick-up more efficient and safer for the children. Thank you for your flexibility and your support for SJB!
Mass Returns to SJB School
Students in grades 1-8 attended Mass over two days last week,. They were our first school Mass celebrations in more than a year. It was wonderful to have the children in church again.
The Service Masses have been moved to Thursday & Friday, October 21 & 22, at 1:45 pm.
Open House Season is Earlier This Year
See the SJB Open House schedule, which includes open-house mornings, nights, and Wednesday Walks with the Principal. Feel free to send it to families that you'd love to see at SJB. Please note that we ask families to make reservations online this year.

Get Certified to Volunteer at SJB
Steps to Certification on the SJB Volunteer Page
SJB is committed to keeping children safe. If you are seeking to work or volunteer with children at SJB, you must obtain child-protection certification through the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Washington.
We encourage parents of children in their first or second year at SJB to obtain their certification now. Please don't wait until the last minute. The certification process can take a few weeks.
SJB Celebrates Hispanic Heritage Month
Take the Principal's Hispanic Heritage Month Challenge
Over the next three weeks, how much can you improve in your ability to label a map of Central America?
How much can you improve in your ability to label a map of South America?
Or, for the extreme challenger, how much can you improve in your ability to label a map of both Central America and South America?
To take this challenge, here are the maps you'll need:
Using the map with no labels, write your name and date at the top and try to label the countries in writing. It's OK if you can't name any countries on your first try. Our goal is improvement, right?
Over the next few weeks, study the map with the labels and keep trying. We want to see how much progress you make from now to October 12.
On October 12, send your first attempt and last attempt to label the map, and remember to include your name and the date.
Use the links to print your maps or the extra copies in folders by the Hispanic Heritage bulletin board in the front hallway.
