EARLY RELEASE

Wednesday, August 24th is an early release day for students.  All students will be released at 12:45 p.m.  

DRESS DOWN DAY TO BENEFIT THE WELL PROJECT

Please refer to your parent/student handbook if you have any questions regarding appropriate attire for dress down days.

BACK TO SCHOOL BASH

Our first event of the year is SCJH’s Back To School Bash.  Bring the whole family this Friday, August 26th from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.  There will be b-b-q food for sale including hamburgers and hotdogs, popcorn, chips, snow cones and bottled water.  After you have filled your bellies, spread out your blanket or set up your lawn chairs as we show “Zootopia” on our 220” screen.  All proceeds from the food sales go to pay for the wonderful after school activities that our students love so much!

SPIRIT NIGHT AT BRAIN FREEZE

Our first spirit night of the year is at Brain Freeze Café in Vero.  From 5:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m., bring the family and enjoy foods from their delicious menu.  Brain Freeze will donate 10% of your total bill back to SCJH.  Be sure to the flyer that went home in last week’s Eagle Folder.  Additional flyers are available in the front office.
