PENNIES FOR PATIENTS
This week we are collecting money for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society via the “Pennies for Patients” drive. This organization is near and dear to the hearts of SJF as one of our former students, Maddie Crise (class of 2015), was diagnosed with Leukemia while a student at the school.
We are tying this community service project into our Lent season via “almsgiving” and have simply asked kids to donate from their heart. Those that give by Friday will receive free dress this Friday (Thursday for 8th grade). Thanks for your support!
LOST & FOUND
The contents of the Lost & Found closet are on display in the school entrance. Many items are clearly labeled with student names. Please take a look at the tables this week before we leave for spring break. Unclaimed uniform pieces will be taken to the swamp; other unclaimed items will be given to Goodwill. Thank you!
