Opportunities, Immunizations, PTSA, and Parking Lots

Good afternoon, SoJo! It’s getting closer to our first day and we have a few updates that will help you stay on top of the start-of-school todo list.

Please remember that immunizations for 7th graders are due by this Friday (you can email them to if it’s easier than coming in person) and also remember that Skyward registration must be completed for every student at every school before school starts. As always, you can check out our website for more information on back-to-school activities.

In this Skylert, you’ll see information about:

  • Become a Peer Tutor
  • Work in our SPED Classrooms or our Cafeteria
  • Immunization Clinic (8/10 from 10 am – 12 pm)
  • Student Drop-Off and Pick-Up
  • Joining the PTSA
  • Locker Combinations

Peer Tutors

One of the most memorable and enjoyable electives offered in middle and high school is the chance to be a peer tutor in a special education classroom. If you think your student might be interested, contact your counselor ASAP.

Openings in SPED and the Cafeteria

We are still on the hunt for good people looking for a great chance to work at SoJo. We have openings for both a teacher and instructional aides in our special education classes, and are looking for people to help in our cafeteria as well. The people (both kids and adults) are what make SoJo such a great place, so if you’re on the fence, talk to someone who works here and we’ll get you off the fence and signing up for the fun here.

Immunization Clinic Tomorrow (8/10) from 10 am – 12 pm at SoJo

Certified Nursing Services will be here offering immunizations. If you haven’t gotten things sorted out for your 7th grader, this is a great chance to get it done and off the todo list.

Student Drop-Off and Pick-Up

If you’re not new to SoJo, you can attest that our parking lot setup is an absolute delight. In order for things to run as smoothly as possible, please check out this overview of our parking lot flow so that you don’t get lost or honked at when you arrive to drop off or pick up your student.

Join the PTSA!

Hello SoJo Parents! Our SoJo PTSA would like to invite you and your student to become a member of the PTSA this school year. When registering your student, you can pay your membership fees on the fees page of Skyward (where you also pay for memory books). Each membership is $6.00. We would also appreciate your $10 donation to the PTSA for the programs we provide each year at SoJo for students and teachers. They include the following:

  • Reflections
  • Student of the month breakfast
  • Parent/Teacher Conference Dinner
  • Spirit Nights
  • Teacher Appreciation

We also invite you to our monthly meetings on the second Wednesday of each month at 10:00 am in the faculty room if you’d like to be involved this year! Thanks for your continued support of SoJo PTSA!

Locker Combinations

Every student is assigned a locker, although they are not required to use it. You can access your locker number in Skyward (the student login, not the parent login). Please remember to check your combination again before Back-to-School Night (8/16), as the combination may change.
