White Day


Tomorrow will be a Gear Day! Visible SJA Gear on top, with dress code appropriate bottoms!


A final reminder that Jenks Studio is here taking photos on the Fuller Hall stage. Juniors- please remember to stop by Fuller Hall today if you haven’t already! Any Freshman or Sophomore who missed their scheduled time earlier in the week are also encouraged to stop by Fuller today. As a reminder, even if you do not plan to order photos, we still need you to have your picture taken, as these are the photos we use for the yearbook.


Attention all students taking this Saturday’s SAT exam. There are certain items you must have with you in order to be admitted. You must have a valid photo ID issued either by the school or your home state. You may also use your passport. You must have a printed version of the official College Board admission ticket (it may not simply be saved on a smart phone – it must be a hard copy). That ticket must also have your photo on it. In addition to bringing those essential items, you will want to bring the following: a scientific calculator with extra batteries, number two pencils (mechanical pencils are not allowed), and some snacks to eat during your breaks. Cell phones will be collected in all testing rooms. If you can do without your phone, it might just be better not to bring it. Please dress comfortably. If it’s raining in the morning or if it’s especially cold, be sure to dress accordingly for the wait outdoors. Finally, you must wear a mask at all times. The doors to Colby Hall will open at 7:45. The doors will lock at 8:00. We look forward to greeting you there.
