The First 6 Weeks!

img_8103 img_5651

Hello Patriots!


The first 6 weeks have been action packed! The PTA started working in August preparing for the school year. We started with helping the SJH staff run registration, we had our annual uniform closet sale and then we had our first general PTA meeting in conjunction with Open House. We also treated the teachers to a back to school luncheon. Something new that we started this year was to have a Spanish translator at the PTA meeting to share all of the information in Spanish. This was a great success.





Our fundraising team has initiated a new monthly fundraising event, KONA Ice. 10-5-16

The KONA Ice truck is going to visit campus on a monthly basis on the first Wednesday of the month. Watch our Facebook page for monthly reminders.




Upcoming EVENTS:
