Calling all families of students in grades K-7! “Adopt an 8th grader” and help make their final year at St. John special, especially during these trying times. Families of students in grades K-7 are invited to be paired up with an 8th grader and celebrate them once a month as they head into graduation. Each month has a theme and a recommended way to recognize the student at minimal cost (approximately $10 each month). For example, March is “Favorite Cookie Month.” Each family who “adopts” an 8th grader can put together a small package containing the student’s favorite cookie and a personal note. Drop off your token of celebration at school, and your 8th grader will be able to pick it up on designated days. If you are interested in “adopting an 8th grader,” please email Katie Burckhardt at email@example.com. We ask that you commit to the program for the full five months leading up to Graduation in June.
