Thank you for attending the State of the School presentations. Our Fair Share philosophy is steeped in the value of community and each person’s contribution for the good and benefit of all of us. It is therefore very important that a representative of every family attends one of the meetings. Tonight is your final opportunity to attend State of the School, 7pm in our church. If you miss it, you will have to make an appointment with me. I will go through the information with you and then you can sign up for Facilitation.
We all enjoyed a Purple and Gold Day – a very spirited event to close Catholic Schools Week! Prior to the fun and games, Will Jarvis, class of 2019 and his mother, Molly O’Connor unveiled a banner dedicated to Will and Jack’s (Class of 2016) father, Chris Jarvis. Mr. Jarvis passed last year. He was a very active volunteer here at St. John. He founded and ran the after school Journalism Club and either coached or volunteered at every baseball game. The banner was donated by the Miles family.
Rolfe Z., Grade 8 led the school in singing the National Anthem and he did a wonderful job. The first and second graders performed the opening dance to great applause! Thank you to Miss Feeney and the teachers for your creative leadership. The eighth graders gave the teachers a good workout as we tried to keep up with them in basketball and volleyball! I will have to get some training from them!
Congratulations to 6th grader Louis S., our St. John Geography Bee Champion, and to Skye L-D, Grade 5 who came in second place. I am very proud of all the contestants who represented their classes and fielded really interesting and challenging questions!

Thank you and God Bless,
