End of School Year Information
Due to the extreme winter weather we have had this year, the school board has approved a motion to implement unplanned e-learning (no back to back days though) to be used to make up school closure days that may occur between now and the end of the school year if the makeup days would put us past May 31st.
As of today, we have four school days to make up, which will make our last day of school on May 30th. That being said, if we have a school closure between now and the end of the school year, we will make up the day on May 31st. If we have more than one closure day, we will then implement an unplanned e-learning day.
Laundry Soap Fundraiser Starts Next Friday
Are you, or someone you know low or out of laundry detergent? Good news!
Next Thursday, Feb. 14th your child will be bringing home fundraiser information and sheet for laundry detergent and as well as several other products. This is the same fundraiser as we did last year. The profits from this fundraiser will help fund the $12,0000 need in our SGO account. If you are not aware, the SGO benefits on average almost 40 students every school year by reducing their tuition so their children can continue to receive a quality Christian education at SJE.
The order forms and money are due March 1st. The goal for the school is to sell 500 units which would give us about a $5,000 profit to go towards our SGO need.
The pickup date will be March 16th 8am to 12pm in the St. John gym. An update on delivery will be sent out after the order is submitted.
In the meantime, if you have any questions, please email Chris Springer at firstname.lastname@example.org.
