Miss B’s religion classes created cards filled with love, kindness, and encouragement For the children and soldiers of Ukraine. Her students used goggle translate to write out words of encouragement, and love and prayer in Ukrainian. Her classes gathered in a prayer circle and lift it up each innocent soul to God. We know He hears all prayers and He is with them. #wearesjastrong


Ms. Kestler came to read The Lorax by Dr. Seuss to 1st Grade this morning. It is Dr. Seuss’ birthday and Read Across America today! Later today they will do a STEM project and make Truffula Trees!

What are Eddy Currents? 8th grade knows. APG scientists
showed students how a magnet moving through a conductive tube caused a magnetic current to form around the magnet which slowed it down when traveling through the tube.

Mr. B and Ms. B’s 8th graders had their first pizza party of the year! Great job 8th graders and parents with the high school application process! Mr. B and Ms. B know each of you will be great in your next chapter! #WeareSJAStrong


We are celebrating Shrove Tuesday with a breakfast fundraiser!


Due to inclement weather SJA will have a 2 hour delay.


Meet Flash. He is the 5th Grade Class Pet. 5th graders researched the best class pets to persuade Mrs. Lane that their pet was the best for the class. They shared presentations to the class then voted and the red eared slider. Students then researched more on how to best care for them and how to create his living environment. They will have a Zoologist as a class job, who will be responsible for feeding and help cleaning the tank. Finally they will keep a growth chart.


Indoor Recess STEM fun in 2nd grade. What fun!

Congratulations to all our current SJA students! 100% of classes contributed to the Annual Fund. Together as a community the students donated $376!

Parents, parishioners, friends and local businesses it's not too late to donate. The Annual Fund is our most important fundraiser. This helps us bridge the $5,576 gap between the cost of educating each student and the expenses not covered by tuition. No matter the amount, your response is powerful.


Hall men you are doing amazing! We have more SJA Alumni who made the Honor Roll at Calvert Hall.
Congratulations to Seniors Alexander Beck
Owen Cornett. Keep up the good work. We are proud of you!


Congratulations to Alumni Thomas Elser, Daniel Mwaura, Nicholas Paolucci, Owen Stapleton and Sean Whitehead on receiving Honor Roll at Calvert Hall. You all are working so hard and we are proud of you!

4th & 5th Grade classes completed a Toad-ally Awesome STEM Challenge using the Engineering Design Process in Mrs. Lane’s Class. Students had to collaboratively work together to design and build a device to successfully have their frog friend deliver a valentine to their friend across the icky, sticky, stinky swamp.


Mrs. Kestler received a special Valentine’s Day treat from her faculty today.

We have the best MedTechs! Thank you to Ms. Ficca and Mrs. Franke for taking care of everyone. #archbaltschools


Ms B made a deal with her middle school classes this weekend; If you get outside on Saturday before the snow hit; and you moved your body and breathe in that fresh air and sunshine you could send her a picture and description of what physical activity you chose! Than each student will receive a credit for their grade! Here is Ms. B and her sister waking/running 6 miles at HCC on the trails; both sisters graduated there!

1st Grade’s 100th day celebration. Students were challenged to use 100 items in each station in a modified version of Minute to Win It. The students invited Ms Kestler and she accepted their challenge!
Here are the activities we enjoyed:
Stacking 100 cups (4 different stations with 100 of the same size cups in each)
Blowing 100 cotton balls off the desk into a container on the floor
Transferring 100 cotton balls to another container by using chopsticks
Use a spoon to toss 100 ping pong balls into a bucket
Use a spoon to toss 100 balls into a large container
Create something using 100 marshmallows and toothpicks


All St. Joan of Arc students showed gratitude for the service and sacrifice of our local heroes by making VALENTINES FOR VETERANS. Congressman Ruppersberger will deliver the cards to a local VA facility on Valentine’s Day.
