News for the week of April 23 – April 30, 2014


Letter from the Principal

Dear SJV families:


I hope you are as excited as I am about our fourth annual all-school play this weekend.  I think SJV is unique in that our play is an event for all students to participate.  If you come to one of the performances on Friday evening or Saturday afternoon (and I hope you do!) you will see a production of “Charlotte’s Web” with performers from Pre-K all the way up to 8th grade.  I love that we have the opportunity to celebrate the many talented and charismatic students here each year.  This is definitely a show that you don’t want to miss! 

Enjoy the spring weather and have a great week! 

Jennifer McCormick
