Hello SJS Parents,

I hope you all have been having a great week! 

Tomorrow we will be practicing a fire drill with the Arlington Heights Fire Department. the Alarm will be pulled and we will be reminding the kids in the morning that this is just a drill. 

This weekend is a four day weekend for our families as we do not have school on Monday for Columbus Day and Tuesday is a professional development day for our staff. 

Enjoy the long weekend!

This would be a huge help to ensure that the little ones can get through the lunch line and have enough time to eat. Please contact FSA if you are interested in helping out:
