CONGRATULATIONS TO SJS 6TH GRADERS

Congratulations to our 6th Grade students. They won Honorable Mention" in the Kenton County Public Library "Haunt Your Library" writing contest. This was the library's 16th year in conducting this contest, and they had a record breaking number of entries- 400 to be exact. SJS is proud of our students who were a part of this contest.
TOY COLLECTION

Once again, 4th grade will be organizing a toy collection for The Good Shepherd Mission in Appalachia. Laura and Dave Arlinghaus will graciously deliver the toys for us. This year the mission requested new or gently used books as well as toys. As always, new toys are appreciated, but a gently used toy is acceptable. We will be collecting the toys at the November 14 Mass.
