Thank You for Supporting Our Annual School Auction
Building a strong community is an important value at STJ.   It is great to see families engaging in experiences that strengthen relationships while joining together to support a greater purpose. I have seen this value displayed through several of our recent STJ events.  For example, it was great to see families come together and support student learning through our learning fair. In addition, last week we reported on the success of our basketball teams that made the state tournament.  While our players certainly represented STJ well, it was another opportunity that allowed families to strengthen relationships while building new friendships in the midst of an athletic competition.

As we consider opportunities that strengthen our community, our School Auction occurred last Friday night. It was an outstanding event that highlighted several elements of our school.  Not only did it help support STJ in a huge financial way, but also it exemplified our strong community promoting opportunities that fostered relationships.

I am grateful for the families that were able to attend our Auction last week.  I appreciate the evident support of STJ through this event. I am thankful for the many volunteers, especially Laura Strasser and Nadia Pratt (our Auction co-chairs) that helped ensure the evening was a success.  Ultimately, the evening was favorable because our community was able to come together in many different ways to support STJ. As the Bible verse below indicates, we are able to use our individual gifts to contribute in unique ways.  When we are able to all come together for a greater purpose, with our personal gifts, we are able to accomplish amazing things. Thanks for your role in making STJ an amazing place!

There are different kinds of working, but in all of them and in everyone, it is the same God at work. - 1 Corinthians 12:6

Auction Announcements:

  • Student, Adult and Family Sign Up Parties are still open for bidding. Please visit the school office to sign up this week.  Sign Up Parties are great way to be a part of the St. John School Community.
  • We want to thank all of the Sponsors, Donors, Volunteers and Attendees for being a part St. John School Auction this year!


School Survey

We are excited to launch this year’s school survey to you.  The following survey consists of 6 different topics/sessions, and will take approximately 10 to 15 minutes to complete.  Our survey will be open for the next several weeks for families in EC through Grade 8. The overall goal of this survey is transparency, and a partnership with you. We want to make sure we are doing everything we can in order for you to continue to call St. John your home.  Thank you so much for your willingness to help make us even better! Please click here to access the survey.



Weather Awareness Week

This week is Weather Awareness Week.  As a result, students will have the opportunity to practice a Tornado Drill this week. 


Upcoming Progress Conferences
Student Progress Conferences will be held the second week after Spring Break on March 26 and 28.  Families with students in K-2 will have the opportunity to sign up for a conference time starting Wednesday, March 9 through the St. John Information Course in Canvas at: https://stjls.instructure.com/ Families with students enrolled in our Early Childhood Program will have the opportunity to sign up at their child’s classroom.


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.

School Safety

main image

The tragedy that took place last week at a school in Florida certainly shook the nation. It has once again placed the issue of school safety front and center in the media and certainly the minds of school officials, teachers, students and parents. As a result of this horrific event, I have spent time praying for the victims’ families, law enforcement, and school leaders as they navigate through the next few weeks. Since last week, I have joined in conversations and prayers with some of you. As I consider these conversations and the weight this event puts on my heart, I would like to share my thoughts and our efforts regarding various aspects of our safety plan with you.

One of STJ core values is Quality Learning Environment. As we strive to meet this value, we have put a strong emphasis on school safety. As a result, we actively consider our emergency response protocols and procedures. In addition, we routinely assess daily practices and methods focusing on remaining proactive in an ever-changing student safety environment. In conjunction with our local police and fire departments, we routinely update procedures that include how to handle all emergencies from fire and tornados, to lockdown and intruder alerts. Teachers receive training on these procedures from our administrative staff as well as our local first responders. While no amount of planning and training can make our systems perfect, we are committed to continual improvement as we adapt to an ever-changing world.

We appreciate the opportunity to provide a safe environment within a well-known community. While we hope to never use our emergency plans, we want you to know that we actively work to ensure these plans align with best practices. As you consider last week’s events, I urge you to join with me in prayer for the families who have been directly affected along with the safety of students attending schools across the nation. As we move forward, I pray that you feel confident in the safety of your child at STJ and celebrate the quality environment they are able to enjoy.

God’s Peace -
Scott Osbourn
St. John School Principal
