Parent/Teacher Communication Maximizes Student Success

Students are always the ones to benefit when parents and teacher communicate and team together for meeting the student's needs.  Parent/Teacher meetings are Thursday, November 19th, from 3-8 P.M. and Friday, November 20th, from 8 to noon. 100% participation helps each student succeed.

Smiles Everywhere!

Eager students and dedicated teachers greeted the first day of school with happy smiles.   Parents too added their excitement and positive outlook for the year ahead with words like: “This is going to be a great year.”  “I am really looking forward to this year.” “I am excited for my children.”   Now we all work together to live out that special year ahead.

Inspired by Ingenuity

By providing learning that is more active and student-focused, St. John’s faculty inspires ingenuity within each student and excites a greater passion for learning.

Strong in Music

Each student at St. John's has excellent opportunities to learn, grow in, and appreciate music.  Every class has music instruction as part of the curriculum.  In these classes, both vocal and instrumental music is explored through participation involving hands-on experiences.  Students also participate in choirs that perform for church services, Wednesday morning chapel, and the spring music concert.  This gives the added privilege of developing confidence and poise by taking a piece of music to the performance level.  Additional performance opportunities are developed through our band and handbells programs.
