From the Principal's Desk...
Parents and Guardians,
Don’t forget that our second night of conferences will be held tomorrow, Thursday, November 18th from 3:30-7:30 pm. Conference forms were sent home on November 5th with conference times for each family. Also, please remember that Friday will be our last day of school before our Thanksgiving Break. Since students earned Monday 11/22 off by raising money through their walk-a-thon in October, St. John’s will not be in session at all next week. I hope that every family has a relaxing break and we look forward to welcoming the students back on Monday, November 29th.
Lastly, thank you to everyone who supported our 3rd Annual St. John’s Spectacular. It was an amazing night watching our community come together to support our school in the effort to keep tuition down for our families. The school is so lucky to have such a wonderful committee of volunteers led by Mary Beth Salyers who worked tirelessly to make this event happen. If you see any of the committee members stop and thank them for their hard work for our students.
***November Menu Revision***
The Thanksgiving Feast will now be on Friday, November 19 instead of Monday, November 22.

Kindergarten students got to talk about Veterans Day via zoom last Thursday with Mr. Mike Manz, a Vietnam Veteran who just happens to be Ms. Kroner’s father.
Eighth grade students always look forward to accompanying their kindergarten mass buddies to the all school masses.
Can you guess who these famous pumpkin scientists are? Fourth graders were each assigned a famous scientist to research and then create a look-a-like from a pumpkin.
Blue Jay Folders were sent home on Wednesday containing a
Santa Shop schedule and gift list/budget envelope.
