It's not a trick, all students are treated to a Halloween Colors Tag Day, tomorrow October 31st!  Please no costumes.  All the SJS ghouls and boos are excited for tomorrow's Halloween Classroom parties; thank you in advance to all those who helped make this tradition possible.

As part of our Halloween fun, the Early Childhood School will be having their annual Halloween Parade!  PS, PK and K students should come to school dressed in their costume and may wear Halloween color clothes under their costumes (or may wear their costumes for the whole day).

Hammerhead Shark Sighting

Students in Grade 3 worked in small groups to research and present on severe weather conditions, including hurricanes, tornadoes, blizzards, and thunderstorms.

Watch out Jeremy Reiner!

Parent School Association (PSA)

Thank You!

Thank you to Emily Cleary and Caitlin Roos for chairing the PSA sponsored Halloween events, Trunk-Or-Treat and Monster Mash.  Thank you to all who volunteered, as well.  Both events were spooky successes!    

Halloween Candy Drive

The Community Service Club will be collecting extra/leftover Halloween candy this week, Tuesday through Thursday.  Students are welcome to drop-off candy in the bins in the main lobby of the Early Childhood School, Lower School, and Upper School.  The Community Service Club will put together bags of treats to share with organizations throughout our surrounding community and our troops.  Thank you in advance!

Calling All Volunteers!

SJS 2023 Auction and Gala

The auction will be held on Saturday, March 4, 2023.  Be part of planning the best night of the year!  Our first meeting will be on Monday, November 14th at 7:00.  We are looking for community members to help with the silent auction, class baskets, 50/50 raffle, decorating, and rsvp/seating.  We welcome new ideas and your creativity to make this a night to remember!

This is a wonderful opportunity to get involved and meet other SJS Needham families!
