Awesome October at MJS!

With ERB testing behind us, and a fabulous fall ahead of us, we look forward to all that October brings at MJS. The annual Golf Tournament is approaching soon. We look forward to celebrating Cornelia Connelly's birthday during Mass. Students are excited about Harvest Festival. They are buzzing about Book Fair and a visit from author Jennifer L. Holm. We can't wait for all these fall activities!
