APPOINTMENTS DURING THE SCHOOL DAY
Please know that if you have an appointment for your child during the school day, it is VERY important for you to email ALL of their teachers and the OFFICE. (Mrs. Horstkamp and Mrs. Barbian).

If you can make the appointment for early in the morning or late in the afternoon, please do so. This is less disruptive for everyone. We know that sometimes it is hard to get appointments after school. You can bring your child back to school after an appointment, but it is important to make that clear in your email to the teachers, and Mrs. Horstkamp and Mrs. Barbian.
FIFTH GRADE TOY DRIVE

Our SJS Fifth Graders
will be collecting toys as a part of their Service Learning Project. This collection benefits the children of Campton in Eastern Kentucky, one of the poorest areas in our state. The Church of the Good Shepherd will sort and distribute the toys to the local families in need.

We ask that NEW toys be brought to school from Nov. 12 - 19. The donations can be placed in boxes in front of the school office anytime that week. 

Some suggestions for toys are : craft supplies, sports equipment, dolls, cars, Legos, games, etc. You may shop at any store of your choice or use the following suggestions: 
Dollar General, Five Below, Target, Walmart, and Family Dollar.
