Participating in Unique Boutique is a great way to meet other JBS parents, have fun and help the Parents Council raise money for the benefit of students, faculty and staff. Volunteers bake, create beautiful handcrafted items and help out before and during the sale by setting up, decorating the school, assembling sandwiches for the Café and working at one of our JBS-sponsored booths.
