Habits of Mind - CURIOSITY & PRESERVERANCE
Jennifer Baham | Teaching Principal

Curiosity and perseverance are terms that seem to go nicely with the holiday season upon us. Kids are curious about all the wonder that surrounds winter, while some of us are looking for perseverance to survive. In Jen's latest blog, she shares about how these words are tied together and how they pair together in the classrooms.

New Staff Member @ SJCS

Mrs. Heidi Sacks (a longtime SJCS mom, sub, and volunteer) will begin working as a Teacher's Aide in the Kindergarten room. Mrs. Sacks brings a background in social work as well as strengths in teamwork, student support, and empathy.

"My oldest daughter started at SJCS in JK and is now a freshman in high school. I love this school! Ever since our early years here, I noticed the way teachers value prayer and the uniqueness of each individual student. I am looking forward to working in the Kindergarten classroom."

Please join us in welcoming Mrs. Sacks to the team!
