September 22, 2012, will mark 100 years of faith, academic excellence, extra-curricular activities, and achievements.

Pat Bries, SJS fifth grade teacher, and her husband, Dennis, organized the planting of a special garden.

Students began working on the project during High Interest Day on May 18 and completed the all-school planting on May 22.

Each current 4K through eighth grade student planted a plant and the fifth grade students spread the mulch and put in the final touches.

“It is all up to God to have the plants fill in the letters before our Centennial Weekend,” stated Pat Bries.

The school wishes to give a special thank you to the Bries for drawing the original plans, purchasing the plants, and finalizing the planting.

The Bries are also on the Centennial Committees that have been gathering information and organizing different events since February.

“The Centennial Celebration will be a year-long dedication,” stated Kari Homb, principal.
