Spirit Day / Visitation Day - Friday, 18 Apr

We will be combining Spirit Day (Crazy Sock Day) with our Visitation Day on Friday, 18 April. For those of us who have mismatched our kids' socks before, we now have a day to relax! Help your children show their enthusiasm for our school by showing their school spirit and pride.

We also need your help to spread the word about Visitation Day. Tell interested coworkers, relatives, neighbors, acquaintances, and others to come visit SMAJA for the day. We have fun activities and prizes for those who attend. We're sure they'll fall in love with SMAJA!!!
