Role of the Parent Advisory Committee, PAC
The purpose of PAC is to represent parents in the different undertakings of the school (fundraisings, activities, voice concerns/suggestions to the principal,manage volunteer/service hours, etc.). The organization is effective only when all parents of the school work tegether. Parents should not expect or assume that all the work has to be done by the leadership of the organization. The main objective should be to work together for the good of all our children at SJDA.
Role of the Classroom Representatives, CR
The CRs are the link between the parents- teacher- PAC. There will be specific activites during the year that each grade is responsible to accomplish. The role of the CR is to ensure all parents in the classroom play an equal role in helping to achieve success with the activity. It is expected that at least one of the CRs attend the PAC meetings.
Students Playing Organized Sports
The more students we have at the school the more probabilities will have to form our own teams. SJDA belongs to the Diocese League, GRACEAC and we intent to participate in Soccer, Football, Cross Country, Volleyball & Basketball. Parents, please encourage your children (grades 5-8) to participate.
Coaches & Assisstant Coaches
We need coaches and assisstanc coaches for Soccer and Volleyball. If we cannot find coches our students will not be able to play. First game for Soccer 5th-6th grades starts on Satuday, September 10 at 12:15 p.m. at Ada Christian.
Please call the office as soon as possible if interested.
We are pleased to intruduce you our new Fourth Grade teacher, Mrs. Tracy Buskirk. Welcome to the SJDA family and we wish her a wonderful school year.
