Fall Begins

Welcome to Fall SJS Families,

It's been an exciting time here at our school , with the start of 2021 well on its way our students have been participating and giving their very best each day. That can be seen in the way they behave in class, participate on our MAP test, play on the playground, and join in on our Extra Curricular activities and Community Events. From the Marigold Parade to Family Fun Day, September was full of Saints showing their Best School Spirit. Thank you for your continued support and for being with us as we celebrate your students and our school.

Morning Drop Off

Please remember to drop your students off along the fence side of the street. If your student needs more time to get out of the car, please pull up to the stop sign or park across the street and walk them over to the playground. Please remember to be on the look out for students crossing the street as this is a school and a school zone. Your attention matters as some of our smaller students are still learning crossing safety.
