​There have been questions about the Athletic Calendar, coaches will be responsible for corresponding with parents in regard to practice time. Emails or text messaging is the most convenient and is up to the preference of the coach.  School calendar is updated bi weekly to update parents of upcoming games. (Which are subject to change). Please check calendar periodically as updates can occur when need arises. Other schools can request changes which can not be anticipated. 


Winter Sports are coming to a close, please forward laundered uniforms in with your child's name after the last game.


  Spring Sports will start in March. Coaches will be contacting interested students to advise them of tryout and practice time. If your child is interested in Tennis and did not sign up, please send a message or an email to  my attention, so I may forward his information to the coach. This sport is dependent on weather conditions, so we will be contacting children when the weather allows practice outside, most likely toward the end of the month. Thank you.

Parent Meetings will be held at start of the season to go over methods of contact, answer questions and explain league rules of conduct. All parents must attend. Thank you for your anticipated cooperation.









    If you have any questions or concerns please contact Mr. Moran @tmoran@sjgs.nj.k12us.com or call 732-349-2355 ext 2013. Thank you.
