SJS Night at Skyline - October 14th
(from 5-8).

We have given the students assigned seating in the cafeteria in order to help with COVID contact tracing . Mrs. Borchers would like all volunteers in the cafeteria to please wear a mask since the children are unmasked in order to eat. Please remember that all school volunteers must be up to date on their Virtus training.

All lunches are free this year again with juice or milk. (government funding) Students will only be charged for extras and bottled water.
A very special THANK YOU to Kristin Siegel for all her work in organizing and coordinating the Mum Sale again this year. We also want to thank all the volunteers who helped Kristin. We had another very successful sale this year. We could not have done it without your help!

Please be sure to put your student's name on their water bottle. We have had quite a few go missing this past week. Without a name, we cannot track down a missing water bottle. Thank you for your help!
