Celebrating Spiritual Growth: Spiritual Growth is an important value at STJ. I always appreciate opportunities when I can reflect on my faith and need for a Savior. In addition, I also embrace opportunities when reflection occurs as a result of an experience. Last week, students participated in a chapel where these elements occurred. While we strive to always provide a great experience for students as they engage in mid-week worship, last weeks celebration of Ash Wednesday allowed students to reflect while experiencing ashes on their foreheads.
The Bible verse below reminds me that I need Jesus. I need a Savior. I feel blessed to be part of a community that recognizes and values this truth. May God continue to bless and transform your family as you walk through the season of Lent.
John 14:6 - Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.
Thank you to the many STJ families who have walked through the re-enrollment process. We have received some great feedback regarding the new online process and look forward to expanding this service for the future. If you have not yet enrolled, it is time to walk through this process. We utilize our enrollment to help prepare elements for the 2018-2019 school year. We are honored to serve your family and ask that you contact the office if you have any questions regarding the enrollment process.
Join Us for our Learning Fair this Thursday! We are excited about our Learning Fair held on Thursday of this week. Several students will be presenting and sharing projects they have been working on in various classes. Make sure you take the time to visit multiple classrooms and learning spaces throughout the night. It is a great opportunity to support student learning and celebrate the work students have accomplished. You can also visit the Book Fair in the Library throughout the evening.
Book Fair is this Week! Our Spring Book Fair is open in the library all this week, February 18 - 23. Please stop by to check out the latest books available by Scholastic or to look at our child's completed wish list. All proceeds from the Book Fair go back to our amazing Library to support reading for our students. In addition, the Book Fair will be open during the Learning Fair on February 22. It is a great time to grab a good book!
The Annual School Auction is quickly approaching on March 2. We are looking forward to celebrating with you in a tropical fashion!

We are excited to grant you access to the STJ PowerSchool Portal. A PowerSchool log-on will grant you access to view student information, attendance, and Single Sign-On capabilities to many of our online tools, including Canvas, LunchTime, and re-enrollment.

As we consider this year's effort, we ask that you prayerfully consider giving a contribution in support of our Annual Fund. You will be joining with parents, grandparents, family members, alumni, friends and businesses who all support our school.
