From the Principal

Dear Parents and Guardians of SJBMS, 

The countdown is on! We have a week and a half until the first day of school and I am so excited to have your students back in our classrooms. This Thursday, August 4, we will be hosting our New Family Ice Cream Social from 7-8 pm. 

The social is for families who are new to the Skaggs Campus, and it will take place in the Mother Teresa Prayer Garden Labyrinth in the center circle (SW corner of the circle). If you are planning on attending, please take 15 seconds and fill out this brief form.

 Student orientation for all grade levels will be next Thursday, August 11. Student orientation for 7th and 8th grade is from 8-10 am with Academy students having an additional session from 10-10:30. Academy students would include any student taking a class at Juan Diego.The 6th grade orientation is also on Thursday from 1-3 pm.  Students may enter through the west or north doors, receive their schedule, and report to HomeBase. Please have your child bring their computer device (not a cell phone) and any communal supplies (wipes, tissues, etc). 

A few final reminders before school starts. One, please make sure you have purchased uniforms for your child. Saint Paul’s Place Uniform Store is open all week, including Saturday, until August 13. They will have additional store hours the first week of school. Please have your school supplies purchased and familiarize yourself with the drop off and pick up procedures listed below. Lastly, just a reminder that most information is listed on our website at under the MySJB page.  

I am looking forward to the start of school and a wonderful school year at SJBMS! 

Go Eagles!

Faithfully yours, 

Mr. Patrick Reeder, Principal
