End of Year Upper School Video
It's tradition to finish the year-end division awards assemblies with a video highlighting the accomplishments-- and the fun-- of each division throughout the year. The following Upper School highlights video was shown at the Upper School Awards Assembly on Monday, May 15, 2017. Enjoy!
It's never too early to get started on your summer reading. Book Bingo (for Lower School) and summer reading lists for Middle and Upper School are now available at sjcdslibrary.net. You can also download the "Destiny" app to check out e-books from the school library all summer long. Happy reading!
