Staff Appreciation Luncheon - Help Needed!
For many years, SJA families have provided delicious foods for a special staff luncheon to express their appreciation for all the great work they do with our children in the classroom. This year is no exception! Our Luncheon will be held on Wednesday, May 16, from 11am to 1pm. Please sign up to provide a dish, donate cash to help defray costs, or volunteer your time to help (set-up/clean up, take over student supervision duties, etc.).  We are especially in need of someone to help coordinate and assist volunteers for this event. If you can assist in any way, please contact the office (info@sjaschool.org or 263-4898 ext 10).
