Dear SJCS Families,
Thank you to those of you that participated and/or helped with our Annual Golf Tournament! A special thank you to Mrs. Snow who organized and facilitated the entire event, a job well done!
You may have noticed that NWEA testing is supposed to start this week. Unfortunately, our new computers have not arrived and we’re having to make alternate arrangements for testing our students. We are planning to test the week of September 28 and the week of October 4. A schedule will be coming out in advance of the testing so you know what days and times your child will be testing. These test scores are for internal data only, they are not shared with the State of Maine. It is strictly for us to determine what instructional needs are present within our classrooms and to ensure that growth is occurring throughout the year.
White polo shirts (2 or 3 buttons with a collar) are not part of the uniform code. If a student wears a white shirt it must be an oxford button up or blouse button up. Also, colored polo shirts (yellow or green) should have the school embroidery on the upper left chest. If you are still experiencing delays with your uniform order, please let us know so we can contact our school specific representative. Thank you!
Lifetouch School Photos
These are scheduled for Tuesday, September 22. All students should be in their Mass Uniforms as these pictures are used for our yearbook. If you would like to order a package you can do so online before picture day. If you are unhappy with the photos once they come in, we will have a retake day later in the fall.

We are always looking for substitutes for our teachers, as they have to be out from time to time. If you, or anyone you know is interested, please have them call Mrs. Snow to get the paperwork started. Thank you!
As a reminder, there is NO SCHOOL on Friday, October 9 or Monday, October 12. There is no daycare available either of those days.
Have a wonderful week!
