Dear Parents,

It was great seeing so many faces at conferences this week. It is wonderful to build that parent/teacher relationship for successful students. Thank you for everyone’s support and for sending your child(ren) to SJJ.

Light the Night Dress Down

Thank you to everyone that supported the Lymphoma & Leukemia Society Light the Night dress down this week. SJJ raised just under $1,300 for the Lymphoma & Leukemia Society. Thank you for your generosity!

Ronald McDonald House Pop Tabs

Unofficially weighing in at almost 57 lbs, our first collection of pop tabs were picked up and delivered to the Ronald McDonald House in Akron. Thank you to everyone who brought in tabs. Keep collecting those tabs and place them in the jar in McGraw Hall.

The RMH will recycle the tabs for money, to help run the house or fund items that the house may need.  They collect all kinds of tabs – pop, soup, veggie, beverage, pet food, any color, any size.  Tabs are collected throughout the year.  In 2020, 350 lbs of tabs were collected!  No quantity is too small, since they add up fast!
