Virtual Hangouts

The PTA is hosting a virtual hangout for each SJLES class!
Sign up under your kiddo’s classroom teacher to get started using the Sign Up Genius link below.  This is meant to be a carefree, fun hangout 😃 It is a way to get our kids socializing with one another!

When: The volunteer host will decide the day
Time: 5:30pm or 6:00pm start time.  This will be a 30 minute hangout.
How:  We are looking for a “Room Parent” volunteer for each classroom!  This Room Parent will host the virtual hangout for the kids within their class. The room parent is not required to create activities for the virtual hangout. Their role is to simply make sure children are staying appropriate throughout the hangout!

***If you have interest in being your child’s “Room Parent”, please make a note when you sign up!***

Box Tops

If you discover a traditional Box Tops clip on a product, you can still clip it and send it to school in a ziplock bag once school reopens. Every valid Box Tops clip is still worth 10¢ for our school. Make sure each one you turn in has a clearly visible product acronym and expiration date.

If you see this label on a product, you can use the Box Tops app to scan your receipt within 14 days of purchase. The app will find participating products purchased at any store and instantly add cash to our school’s earnings online.

You can still earn Box Tops for our school with your e-receipt!  See how at

Any questions, email Sayli Moskowitz at

Virtual Turkey Trot!

Although we can’t physically gather as usual to run/walk on the Mt. Hebron HS track, we can still run this Thanksgiving!

Physically distanced, but virtually united!

EVENT DATE: Your run must be completed between November 23rd-30th.  

TIME: Anytime that suits you best between Nov. 23rd and Nov. 30th.

Always make sure you are clearly visible to cars and other pedestrians and especially in the twilight hours.

LOCATION: Run/walk ANYWHERE that is SAFE! (sidewalks, paths, treadmill)*

Please ensure a parent or guardian is present.

DISTANCE: 1 mile (approximately 10-15 min) or more

Once you have finished your run complete the form linked below.  Please completed one form per child.  All SJLES students who submit a form will be entered into a drawing for SJLES spirit wear.

Attach a picture of you and/or your family participating when you complete the form.  We will create a picture collage that we would like to share with our school community! 

Mr. Notari shared a video message with us yesterday to officially kick off the Turkey Trot.

Thanks, in advance to everyone who participates!

And the winners are….

Well, after much deliberation, our judges (Mrs. Harkness, Mrs. Peddicord & Mrs. Essa) were able to come to a consensus on the winners of the Pumpkin Decorating Competition.  It was SO hard to choose because they were all so awesome in their own way!  

1st place: #18 (Easter family)

2nd place: #26 (Xia family)

3rd place: #31 (Guy family)

Honorable mentions go to:

Spookiest – #14 (Chaturvedi family)

Movie Madness – #28 (Nichols family)

Most Festive – #29 (Ganti family)

Creepiest – #9 (Patel family)

The judges wanted everyone to know that it was SO hard to pick only a select few.  They would have picked them all if they could!

We will be in touch by email with the winner families to arrange for prizes to be delivered.

Thank you SO much to all the families who participated! We hope you had a good time coming up with your designs.
