Girls Volleyball Team Repeat ILSAA Volleyball Champions
This year's girls varsity volleyball team is made up of 7th graders Maddie Simshauser, Leyna Nagel, Lainey Simmons, Jessica Rohrbach and Carley Gerardot. The 8th graders are Claire Bickel, Kate Zellers, Aly Stinson and Ellen Scott.
These awesome girls are not only repeat champions of the state ILSAA Volleyball championship but also the south division and city LSAA tournament as well. They won the championship game against Immanuel Seymour in three sets. Immanuel took the first set and SJE the other two. The third set was posted on Facebook by the ILSAA and shared on the SJE Facebook page. If you get a chance, watch it. That 3rd set was amazing!!! Kate, Aly and Claire also earned All-Tournament Team honors.
The 8th graders girls had not lost a set until last weekend and have gone undefeated for 3 years, a huge accomplishment for them. These girls all have amazing resilience and are a phenomenal team on and off the court.
Congratulations to all the girls as well as coaches Angie Bickel, Jeff Simshauser and Harlee Gardner for a phenomenal season. Ready for a three-peat?

Volunteering at SJE
Thank you to all who have already earned volunteer hours this school year. I know many more are still working towards them.
Please note that your service hours are now being entered in Renweb and can be found on the Parentsweb page on the right side. Click on your name and then the "service hours" tab and you will see your total hours. Each parent has their own tab to look at.
Also, note that by in large I have only entered those hours that are complete as of the end of the 1st quarter or volunteer positions that run all school year with fixed hours like school board etc. Room parent or anything yet coming up is not in there yet because there are no fixed hours.
As of 10/11, 25 families have completed the appropriate number of hours needed for their family and another 29 have not yet accumulated any volunteer hours. Please note the info in bold below and see where you might be able to help/volunteer.
**Please note that your volunteer hours this year (18-19) will reduce or eliminate up to $400 of the tuition increase/student set for the 19-20 school year.***
