Congratulations to grade 5 for being the top class on their grade level for Grammar-Thon 2019!  They recently competed online against other schools, and the goal was to correctly answer as many grammar questions as possible. They were the top 5th grade out of 77 schools that competed!

The grammar-thon was sponsored by CTN.

SJWCA and CTN are proud of grade 5 and their hard work and effort. 

Laura Hickey, CTN Instructional Technology Specialist, arrived at school today to

visit and distribute the certificates and token prizes.
