  • SJS Hoodies Available

    Posted by Lisa Crane on 1/12/2022


    Our uniform provider, Collegiate House, is delighted to begin offering SJS hoodies for sale. These may be worn over polo shirts on Class B days and on gym days (the hood must remain down). To kick off the sale, Collegiate House is running a promotion for SJS families: Use coupon code SCHOOL10 through Friday, January 21st to receive 10% off your hoodie order and free shipping to the school! Collegiate House will submit one bulk order and deliver the sweatshirts to the school for pick-up. 

    When you place your order, please make sure to choose “LOCAL PICKUP” when you checkout so that the website doesn’t charge you the $10 for shipping.  If you choose shipping, it will still give you the 10% off but will be delivered to your home address. Sweatshirts should arrive approximately three weeks after the group order closes on January 21st.

    (Please note, the coupon code is good for the hoodie only, not other merchandise.)
