    indoor3

    Grade 3 students made the best out of inclement weather on Thursday by putting their imaginations and creative skills to work with lots of Legos, Playmobile and Magna-tiles. It's wonderful to see their freestyle creations and listen to their fantastic stories!  Mrs. Ellis reports that they are a wonderful family who care about each other's feelings, both with their academics and with their free play.  What a peaceful world we would have if everyone got along as well as these third graders!

  • Grade 4 & 5 Field Trip to Topsfield Fair

    Posted by Siobhan Murphy on 10/15/2019

    Mrs. Chiodini, Mr. Stackhouse and the Grade 4 and 5 students had a fantastic field trip to the Topsfield Fair last week!

    The students we able to see farm animals up close, watched a pig race, created their own yarn, learned how to barter, enjoyed delicious fair food, saw an incredible sand sculpture in the making, watched a model trainset, learned all about bees and honeymaking, learned about woodmaking and blacksmithing and all around had a great time!  We love it when they have so much fun, they don't realize how much they are learning!

    Thank you to Mrs. Chiodini and Mr. Stackhouse for organizing such a terrific day for their classes!

    toys

    Thank you all for your generous contributions to our toy drive for Ronald McDonald House of Long Island this month!

    We are delighted to have collected a huge container of toys to help keep up the spirits of hospital-bound children.

    We also raised over $400 through a Casual for a Cause day.

    This wonderful organization did so much for our own 6th Grader Thomas Pote who suffered a traumatic injury this summer and the SJS and Pote families are so glad to have this opportunity to give back!

    religion

    The Kindergarten class enjoyed an impromptu picnic lunch with Mrs. Melino last week!  They had a wonderful chat about how we should treat each other, asking ourselves what Jesus would do in any situation.  We love to find ways to incorporate religion into everyday moments!
