As your son enters a new phase of life as a freshman, it is an important and yet sometimes difficult transition. To ease his transition, to help your son become acclimated to the school, and to make new friends with his classmates, we offer the Freshman Community Weekend. This weekend is one of social, athletics and spiritual activities. Many administrators, faculty, staff come to be a part of it and the freshmen are led by a group of upperclassmen student leaders. It is truly a weekend of the SJR family spirit.
The dates of the weekend are Thursday, September 29, 2018 after school until noon on Saturday, September 21, 2018. The weekend is held at the Marist Brothers’ Center at Esopus, NY, a beautiful 150-acre property on the Hudson River, 70 miles north of SJR.
Currently, we have over 40 incoming freshmen signed up - and counting!
We usually take over 70 freshmen (nearly half the grade) and the trip will fill up by the end of August. Please act to send in the permission slip below and payment to reserve a spot for your son.
