Dear Families of SPSJ,
It is always wonderful to see so many of our school families and parishioners enjoying themselves at the carnival. It was also great to have such nice weather for the carnival! Special thanks to Jennifer Tavormina and to the carnival committee for all of their hard work and endless hours that they gave throughout the school year and this week to make our carnival a success. Also, thank you to all of our teachers, parishioners, and families that supported the carnival and to everyone that volunteered. You help make this great school and community event a reality. We are thrilled to announce that this year the carnival profited approximately $50,000.00!
