We still need volunteers to sign up for various tasks during the event as well ( night from 5:00 p.m. to 11:30 p.m.).

Last, but certainly not least - invite guests to attend the event -sell tickets and bring/send them into school. Not many tickets have been returned at all at this point.

During the 2014-2015 school year our local families are hosting students from Haiti, China and New York City. Because these families are opening their homes to a young person from another country, they are helping give our international and diversity students an opportunity for an education, and to develop the compassion needed to make the world a better place for the next generation, and the communities they return to.These students have been engaged within the MSJ community, joining sports teams, tutoring fellow students, acting in the theater program, and giving back through local community service projects. MSJ is grateful to the contributory host families, because without them, these experiences would not be possible, and MSJ would miss the opportunity for rich cultural diversity.
MSJ is seeking supportive families to host students. Join our global community and help support the MSJ community! In the Spring 2015 school semester we need three families to host students from China. MSJ families who host will receive either $2,500 off their 2015-2016 school tuition or a $600 a month stipend (which pays any remaining 2014-15 tuition balance, before remittance to host). To find out how to host a student, contact Carrie Savage at (802)-775-0151 or firstname.lastname@example.org, or visit www.msjvermont.org
Happy Catholic Schools Week! This week has flown by with the many activities that our students have been participating in. we went to CKS for a combined celebration. We had a wonderful Mass with one of our favorite Priests, Father Justin. This Mass was extra special because four students from CKS were Baptized! We were so fortunate to be able to celebrate with those students and families. We shared lunch with CKS and then we had a combined basketball tournament where a CKS Team played another CKS Team and and MSJ Team played an MSJ Team. Then both the CKS and MSJ teams played members of the MSJ and CKS staff. We had a blast! The kids had a great time and they also participated in the “pie a teacher” contest in which Jenna E. nailed Mr. McDonough and Josh W. got Mrs. Audette. Everyone was a good sport as it was all done in good fun! Needless to say after playing in the game, I learned morning that running and sprinting are two totally different things! ... .Click here for full letter
MESSAGE FROM PFC:
The Parents and Friends Club are selling discount saver cards. If you have not received these, please pick up your cards in the main office. Each family is asked to sell 9 saver cards. Any cards not sold need to be brought back to the front office. If they are not, individual families will be billed for any cards not returned. It is very important that each family participate in these fundraisers as they help the PFC to make their projected $20,000 which is included in the MSJ budget. If you have any questions, feel free to contact Lori Elliott, President of the Parents and Friends.
