We are 1 month away from our largest fundraiser! Did you buy your tickets, yet?
Take advantage of the "Early Bird" special!
SJS Favorite Things Basket
Raindrops on roses, and whiskers on kittens, bright copper kettles and warm woolen mittens, brown paper packages tied up with strings, these are a few of my favorite things…
This basket will contain more than a few of SJS families favorites and we’d love for YOU to donate your favorite thing too! Your favorite lip color, the best hair product you’ve ever used, your favorite statement necklace, a gift card to your favorite restaurant…What item or place would your life feel incomplete without!? These are the things that will be contained in this wonderful basket!

Donations are being collected by SJS mom Julie Pagano (Maddie ’18, Tyler ’25 and Davis ’27) and she will be collecting through March 25th. No item is too big or too small. All donors will be privy to an exclusive list of all products in the basket. Help make this basket one of the most sought after items at this years auction!

Julie is available to pick up items at your convenience. Please contact Julie at  to arrange pickup time and location.
Gift of Human Sexuality: Grades 6-8
Parents of 6-8 grade students should have received an electronic communication from me detailing the upcoming presentation on the Gift of Human Sexuality . In accordance with diocesan policy, this program is designed as an opt-in opportunity for parents and students. We recognize parents as the primary educators of children and we are privileged to work with you. With that idea, I invite parents of students in grades 6-8 to a presentation for parents to be held on Thursday March 14th at 7:00 p.m . in Hall A for you to receive the information that will be presented to the students in class.
We ask for $ 20 to offset the cost of this program, which can be taken
from your FACTS account.
