Busing for 2016 - 2017

A reminder that the Transportation Department is now planning now for the 2016 - 2017 school year. If there is no change to your child's busing for next year no updates are required and an invoice (where fees are applicable) will be sent to you (you may have received it already). The deadline for payment to ensure your child receives bus service for the start of the new school year is July 31st, but there is an early payment option available until midnight June 30th.

If there is a change in address, or pick-up or drop-off location, please complete a new transportation request form found on the EICS website. Thank you.

St. John XXIII Really Does Have Talent!

What an outstanding talent show we had on Friday afternoon - we are blessed to be in a school community with students who have so many gifts and talents, classical piano, to Acro, hip hop, singing, magic and more! Well done!! Thanks so much to all who helped make the event a success.
