You can drop off your gently used or new jeans; any size from baby to adult, both male and female jeans, jeggans will also be accepted, no jackets, shorts or skirts please, to St. Basil the Great School during school hours, send them in with your students or drop them in the gym during basketball practices in the evenings.

Student Council members have recently begun mentoring students in grades K-3 in subject areas such as math, spelling, study skills, etc.. S.C. members take this job very seriously and are doing a great job, the students they are tutoring are having a great time too. Who knew studying could be so much fun! If you would like your child to have some extra tutoring please contact your child's teacher. Mentoring takes place during lunch recess on Wednesdays.
