SJS Living Nativity

The Grades 6-8 students of SJS Needham would like to invite everyone to the annual Living Nativity on December 16, 2022, at 1:30 pm in the Upper Church.  This beloved tradition goes back over 25 years.  This year, we are delighted to include our entire school community in the audience and are thrilled that the Grade 6 and 7 choir will be returning.  The performance is the final event of the calendar year at SJS Needham and a beautiful reminder for us all of the true reason we celebrate Christmas.

Christmas Volunteers

Santa's Workshop

Santa’s Workshop is a Christmas tradition at SJS Needham for preschool through grade 5.  The Lower School gym is transformed into a winter wonderland where students join their classmates and shop for gifts for their family and close relatives and friends.  Gifts range in price from $2.00 - $7.00 (most in the $2.00 - $4.00).  Gifts are wrapped and brought home to place under the tree for their loved ones.  More information will be sent home as we get close to the event to be held on December 13-14th.

We need volunteers for the event to help students shop, gift wrap items, and work the check out table.  This is a fun (and famous) event that you will treasure; you may even get some of your Christmas shopping done! 

Thank you to Ali Mazza and Jennifer Soivilien for co-chairing the event. Email with questions.
