A Letter from Dr. Maloney




Dear SJB Families,

Congratulations to our JV soccer team for winning the championship!!! I am so very proud of our Jaguars for their determination, grit, and the way they play as a team. Every player on the field made a key play that contributed to the victory. I would like to thank Coach Salazar and Coach Salazar for shaping the team into a group of players who play fair, support each other, and are good sports. I would also like to thank everyone who attended the Pack the Place championship game at Notre Dame. Our community sure has fun when we come together!! 

Red Ribbon Week: Our Student Council arranged for activities next week in observance of Red Ribbon Week. The purpose of Red Ribbon Week is to affirm the commitment to live a drug-free life and to adopt healthy habits. Students can wear special clothes each day. Refer to the schedule below or check our school calendar each day to check the theme.

Halloween: Thank you to our wonderful P/SA for facilitating the Trunk or Treat! The trunks looked amazing, and our Jaguars had such a fun time. Congratulations to the sixth-grade classes for winning the trunk contest.

We are so excited about our Halloween parade at 10:00 on Friday, October 29. Our students from Preschool through 3rd grade will march in a parade around our courtyard. Parents are invited to watch the parade. Bring your cameras!
