SJA Open House – June 14

The transition from Junior High to High School can be stressful for both students and parents. The best way to relieve that stress is to visit the building and get to know some of the people who work and learn there. To that end, SJA is hosting an Open House for Grade 9 students and their parents on the evening of Tuesday, June 14th beginning at 6:30pm in the cafeteria. This will include a short presentation on life as a high school student and then the Student Government will provide tours of the building. You are invited to join SJA for this event.
