SBJA Essential of the Week
"You promised!"
Yes, you did! All our parents promised us something when classes started, and it has nothing to do with your financial contract! As important as that is, this promise is far more important than money. You will find out about this commitment at this Thursday's Parenting Class, and your participation is extremely critical. PLAN TO ATTEND!
Mothers and Daughters know how to have fun!
Thanks to Mrs. Janelle Blazina, Mrs. Shannon Sugimoto, and all the amazing HSA volunteers who planned and beautifully carried out the Mother-Daughter Event last Thursday evening. And now all the participants can re-live their good time by finding lots of photographs here. You can download or just enjoy them online. If you took photos you'd like to add to this album, you can do that as well.
Our appreciation to the following businesses who donated to our Mother-Daughter Event last week (and to Mrs. Janelle Blazina for obtaining the donations!):

Dicks sporting goods
Lazy dog
Coffee bean
Jersey Mikes
Panda express
Marie Callender’s

Peter Pan is visiting on Wednesday evening
SBJA's brand new Drama Club is presenting a loose interpretation of Peter Pan on Dec. 5 at 6:30 pm in the gymnasium. Come give them encouragement in their first endeavor!
Have you been asking, "How can I help SBJA?"
Of course you have, so here's a great idea. If you're too busy to drive to one store after another, you might be like many of us who shop online. If you do, and if you use, here's a painless way that your purchases can help our school. Click on the image below, follow the instructions, and select South Bay Junior Academy as the organization to which you'd like to direct %.05 of your purchases. It's easy to let amazon donate in your behalf at no cost to you. Save the website address so each time you shop you'll be directed there.

Please tell your family and friends about this opportunity to help SBJA!
Let's all participate
As part of our school theme for '18-'19 we'll be participating in The Great Kindness Challenge in January. Let's raise our students' awareness about how their behavior affects others.
