We would like parents to do this each evening – parent signatures are required and will be checked in school the following morning. If there are any other supplies that have not been labeled with your child’s name and grade, please do that this week as well. PE will be held each Monday and Friday this year and will begin on Friday of this week. All PE clothing should be brought to school in the SJB PE Bag clearly labeled with name and grade. New bags have been ordered – they should arrive soon.
