During this past week, we had a couple inquiries from prospective families for the 2018-2019 school year. As we plan for next year, we need your child’s enrollment form and tuition form returned as soon as possible. SJA is having an enrollment incentive to have all forms returned for next year. The first class to have all forms returned will receive a special treat!
Bullying Presentation: Parents are invited to join the SJA teachers for a Bullying presentation on the evening of Wednesday, March 7th at 7:00-8:30 p.m. The presentation will take place in the SJA church. A national presenter will provide information about how to work collaboratively with the school to reduce mean behavior and create a culture of kindness.
Parent-Teacher Conferences: Friday, March 16th (Teachers are available starting at 8:00 a.m. If you would like to request a conference, please contact your child’s homeroom teacher prior to March 16th.)
