Carpool Reminder

Just a reminder to parents who drop their students off in the Administration car loop in the morning—As you approach the Administration Building, please pull all the way forward before stopping. You'll see Mr. Wirth standing by the Lower School entrance-- please pull forward all the way to him before stopping your car. Thank you for helping us keep things moving during morning drop-off!

This month in Character Foundations, St. Johns' innovative character education program, students in all grades are learning about integrity, which is defined as choosing to be truthful in whatever you say and do. Visit sjcds.net/news to learn more about integrity, find out some of the things our Spartans will be learning about and doing this month, and get resources you can use to reinforce the lessons at home.
