Next week, Nov 15-19, will be SJA’s Week of Giving! St. Johnsbury Academy has a long-standing tradition of giving back to the community. For many years, through the generosity of faculty, staff and students we have donated countless items of food and money to stock the local food shelf as well as contribute to the Thanksgiving Baskets that are distributed to families in our community for the Holiday. Next week the National Honor Society will organize our annual “Week of Giving” Food Drive. Throughout the week we encourage all of you to bring in non-perishable food items that can be used for the Thanksgiving baskets and for the local food shelf. There will be over 150 baskets delivered to families this year, so please bring as much as you can.  To make things a litt​le more interesting, we want to make this a friendly competition among classes. The class that brings in the most food will have all of the advisories entered into a raffle for advisory treats for a month! Advisors: please keep track of the number of items that your advisees bring in. Then drop items off in the boxes outside of Campus Life and Guidance. Some examples of what you can bring are: Canned vegetables, canned or Bottled gravy, boxed pie crust, canned fruit and stuffing.  Also, the food shelf can always use: pasta sauce (but no pasta please – right now they have more than enough pasta), Peanut butter, and cans of tuna fish.  Check out the signs around campus for the list of items.  Finally, on Thursday, Nov 18th, there will be a Variety Day supporting the food shelf and their efforts. The cost will be $1.00, but anything more is greatly appreciated. So, use this weekend to do a little grocery shopping and bring in non-perishable food for the food drive next week. Have a great weekend! 


The Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) Good Citizens Award and Scholarship Contest is intended to encourage and reward the qualities of good citizenship. This award recognizes and rewards individuals who possess good citizenship qualities of dependability, service, leadership and patriotism in their homes, schools and communities. These students are selected by their teachers and peers because they demonstrate these qualities to an outstanding degree. 


During Advisory on Oct. 28th, the Senior class was presented with the top 3 students nominated by our faculty. They are (in no particular order) Hannah Angell, Sam Begin, and Maddie Hurlbert. This year’s DAR Good Citizen Nomination goes to Hannah Angell. Hannah, the Guidance Office will be sending you an email with additional information regarding the Scholarship Contest.
