Our DayCare and LatchKey enrollment is nearly at its limit. Some days we are at maximum capacity. Therefore, I strongly encourage you to reserve your spot as early in advance as possible. Additionally, although we have perhaps the lowest rates in the area, we charge $1/hr more for unannounced drop-ins. Please let us know if have to cancel your scheduled time in DayCare or LatchKey, so we don't have to turn others away.
Please join me in congratulating our SJS girls volleyball team. They are halfway through season and have a 3 - 2 record.

Volunteers and drivers... We are obligated to comply with a new Archdiocesan policy. If you plan to either serve as a volunteer or an event/trip driver during the upcoming school year, you must complete the following trainings - Safe Environments
and Be Smart Drive Safe
. These trainings can be found at cmgconnect.org
. We are part of the Archdiocese of Dubuque. If you have already completed the Driver course, you will not be required to take it again, but all volunteers that work with or around our students must complete the Safe Environments course (It is a 75 minute video).
