If you answered yes, then you need to participate in the SJE Photo Contest!
All ages and grades are welcome to participate.
This year’s focus is PRESENT GOD.
Take a picture that represents PRESENT GOD. Maybe a church, act of kindness, or quiet place? The possibilities are endless!
Each participant will receive a framed version of their photo.

One photo will be chosen to be professionally framed and auctioned off at the carnival.
When: Feb 7th-27th

Be creative! Have fun!
19-20 Re-Enrollment Coming Soon
Just as you did last year, you will go to what is now called FACTS Family page and go to enrollment/re-enrollment and re-enroll your kids that way. DO NOT fill out a new application if you are a current family with no new kids to enroll. If you have new children to enroll, those you will go through the application process. The rest of your kids will be re-enrollment only.
I am planning to send home to all families during the week of February 25th a financial worksheet that will give you an estimate of what your tuition bill could look like next year. As always, it is still an estimate until all scholarships etc have been awarded. The scholarship figures used in their now are based on what you were awarded in 18-19.
If you are planning on applying for an SGO or School Choice scholarship, please send me the first page of your 1040 sometime in March. There is a new process to apply for an SGO. For next year you will apply for an SGO online and just send me the 1040 to upload for you. The website will be available in early April. Watch for more details to come.
If you have questions about the process, please don't hesitate to ask Amy in the office or myself.
