Where Did the Time Go?

May 6, 2015

St. John 8th graders are soon to become St. John Alumni. In what has become a tradition, this morning as part of Chapel the whole school was able to lay hands on and pray both for and with these soon-to-be graduates. These are sacred moments in which we continue to rejoice!

Upon A Dream

May 1, 2015

Once Upon a Dream, a rendition of the classic Cinderella story, was performed by the drama elective students in the St. John Middle School.  The musical performance’s message mirrored the lesson from scripture found in Matthew 23: 11-12. “The greatest among you shall be your servant.  Whoever exalts himself will be humbled, and whoever humbles himself will be exalted.”

A Chapel Favorite and A Day Without Shoes

Wednesday, April 20, 2015

Christian rapper, Mynista, returned to St. John School today to share his music ministry during our whole-school Chapel. High energy and a love for the Lord are gifts he spreads so generously. Associate Principal for the morning, Libby Wessels, opened our time of worship with prayer, introduced Mynista and helped make announcements. She did a great job!

God is doing amazing things!

This week, St. John School hosted a visiting team of six education experts representing two accreditation agencies:  AdvancED and National Lutheran Schools Association.  While St. John has maintained National Lutheran Schools accreditation for many years, the school had never been through the rigorous AdvancED process.  AdvancED is an agency that objectively evaluates 35,000 public districts and private schools nationally and internationally via a consistent set of standards.

The school staff gathered evidence to substantiate their self study using the strictly structured criteria associated with each of those standards.  As they were seeking dual accreditation, they had to demonstrate excellence in all of these areas:  1) Christian culture, 2) Teaching and Learning, 3) Leadership Capacity, and 4) Resource Utilization.

The visiting team reviewed vast documentation, including stakeholder survey results, for several weeks and then came to campus to see the school in action. In two days’ time, they did 28 classroom observations using a specific scoring rubric.  They also interviewed groups and individuals including students, staff, parents and pastors.

They are recommending St. John Lutheran School and Early Childhood Center for dual accreditation.  The school earned high marks in all areas!  How high?  St. John exceeded the national/international averages for 35,000 accredited schools in all learning environment categories. 

Detailed reports from both agencies will arrive this summer.  The St. John School Administrative Team will craft their five-year school improvement plan informed by the findings of this independent review.  One of the first graders expressed it best when he said:  “It’s great for them to tell us what we need to practice.”

During the high-level exit overview shared with the St. John staff and Board of Directors Tuesday afternoon, the visiting team commended the school on several “Powerful Practices.”  Some programs highlighted were:

  • Fine Arts emphasis across grade levels
  • Student Portfolios in our Early Childhood Center and Middle School
  • Bring-Your-Own-Device and Digital Citizenship integration in Middle School
  • House Groups and Leadership Development in Middle School
  • Communication with families which includes a Learning Management System
  • Dedicationto Mission, Vision and Core Values

God is doing amazing things in and through the staff, students and parents of St. John School.  It is a blessing to have that validated by an external evaluation.  As we celebrate our school’s successes, may we continue to intentionally seek His will and favor.
