Expansion Update

We are pleased to inform you that the School Board unanimously voted to affirm enrollment to include two classes at each grade level (Kindergarten through 8th Grade). Pursuit of this course of action has been authorized by our parish and school administration.

We will continue to offer PreKindergarten opportunities for those families who are interested. It is anticipated that the expansion plan will be implemented as follows:

• 2018-19: SJE enrollment to include an additional 6th grade
• 2019-20: Growth will accommodate two 7th grade classes
• 2020-21: Full-capacity anticipated when we have two 8th grade class

Dear Parents:

The tournament schedule/bracket was just released. The brackets for each tournament are below, as is a summary of rules and the schedule.

Varsity Volleyball Bracket Varisty Basketball Bracket

Overall (from the League Director)

  • Both days of the tournament will be held at Immaculate Heart Academy. (Magee, East of Oracle)

    • Once a team loses, they cannot get back to the winner's side of the bracket.
    • Teams can still earn higher placing until they lose a second time.
  • I will work on a schedule for table duties.
  • I am requesting that ADs do NOT keep score during the CHAMPIONSHIP game for either basketball or volleyball- you should be readily available to help coaches and/or address parent/spectator issues.
