Kindness Week

This is SJE Kindness Week. Hopefully, during the week, a class or classes could have a kindness project to do as a whole class as well to reinforce the lessons.


Note: Please make sure ALL classes are doing some kind of activity throughout the week. This week should be whole school and all students. Pictures from this week would be great so I can post to Facebook etc on Friday. Please send to me to do so. Thanks!

ECE Open House

We will also be doing an ECE Open House on May 1st from 4:30-6:30pm.


Folks it is key that we do all we can to get behind these events and support them. At a minimum, we need to maintain current enrollment numbers and at best we need to grow. If not, cuts will need to happen. We are at the break even point with enrollment and needed faculty and staff. Please do all you can to help.
