News and Upcoming Events

ASP – ENRICHMENT CLASSES START NEXT WEEK

As part of the After School Program, we offer a variety of optional after-school classes for an additional fee. Spring classes will begin the week of January 27 unless otherwise noted. Students may attend ASP before or after their optional classes at no additional charge. For class descriptions, dates/times and instructor information, view the ASP page. To enroll your child in the ASP and/or optional classes, print, complete and return the contract to school. Payments can be made by check (made payable to SJES) or through ParentsWeb.
The Book Cooks and Minecraft Mondays classes are full. Contact ASP director Lani Jones with questions. 

KINDNESS WEEK

Our sixth annual Kindness Week will take place January 27-31. Students will participate in activities promoting kindness (i.e., kind notes to buddies, team clean, community thank you notes). Your children will be part of a powerful and positive initiative that we hope will lead to more kindness, unity and respect. Please help us promote kindness by asking your children about the activities and extending the discussion to home and participating with the attached GKC Family Edition Checklist. Learn more about the Great Kindness Challenge here.
