The Results Are In....

The Food Collection held during Catholic Schools week was impressive! Hands down, the Lower School beat out the Upper School, but our true focus is on the Lamoille Community Food Share. Last year alone, 1,202 families were served! That's 3,898 individuals: 1,526 children; 2,161 adults; 211 seniors in our home towns.

This friendly competition reminds us of the importance of serving our communities, and that while our individual contribution may be small - when we come together - it's tremendous!

WINTER BALL tonight; 7 pm - 9 pm

Grades 6-8 will be dancing up a storm from 7 PM - 9 PM with Supersounds DJ services sponsored by the Christmas Fair committee.

3rd Grade takes a break from the grind to enjoy BJAMS' wonderful nature trails!

Back by popular demand!
