Dear Parent(s)/Guardians(s) and Students:

 

We are at the one-week mark before the start of school and are excited about the building coming alive again with the return of the students and staff, this past week with Registration.  We want to ensure you have all the information necessary to make this transition as smooth as possible.  Attached below you will find the changes that have been made to the Student Handbook, the Teacher Supply List, Registration Information, Cross Country Information, Lunch Account, Homecoming Guidelines, Football Tickets, a 5K, and the Footwear Options for the Junior High.  Please remember that if you should have any questions, do not hesitate to call, email, or stop in the office, our goal is not to make this more challenging, but rather make your back to school shopping and transition to the 2016-17 school year as smooth as possible.

Thank you for all of your help and support as we institute these changes.  Without your faith in St. John’s, we would not be able to accomplish our mission.  We look forward to seeing you soon.

St. John’s Junior High/High School Registration 2016-17 School Year

As you will notice there are no forms attached below in regards to registration materials, as you have seen in the past.  Information regarding our new online registration forms (OneView) will be emailed and mailed home to you in the near future.  This online registration is intended to encompass all forms that were completed by hand in the past, into a user-friendly, online portal, that you will have access to at all times, to make any changes necessary and gather other important materials that may be needed throughout the school year.  More information will follow.  We pray this takes away the burden of filling out forms in the future.

Online Lunch Account Payment System

This year we will be moving to an online system that allows you to place money on your student(s) lunch account, without the need to write a check or send money with them to school. The former option will still be available, including the convenience of paying online.  Again, like registration information, we hope this frees up a little time in your busy lives.  More information will accompany our OneView platform in the near future.

Junior High Footwear Dress Code

Below you will find the shoe selections for your Junior High student(s).  We highly recommend you purchase shoes from one of the options pre-selected for you from Shoe Carnival in Lima or Shoe Carnival online.  You can also order shoes at the store if they would be out of stock.  If you purchase shoes outside of these options, we cannot guarantee they will meet the uniform guidelines.  Which may result in disciplinary action.

If you have any questions the sales clerks at Shoe Carnival will have the list of the pre-approved shoes, please do not hesitate to ask.  We hope this makes it easier for our families with your back to school shopping and eliminates the questions as to what footwear is appropriate.

Shoe Carnival will be hosting a Catholic School shopping party event, which will be held on August 27.  Both days the store will be open 9:30 AM – 9:30 PM.  The customer will receive 30% off their in-store purchase, with the flyer below.  If they would be out of a specific shoe or size, they will order for you through the store and still honor the 30% discount along with free shipping to your home.  Be sure to check the Thursday ads in the newspaper for special offers and coupons.  Retail Me Not is a great app that can also provide a discount, visit Shoe Carnival online for printable coupons, or show your phone when checking out.  A $5.00 coupon is attached below.

The following question has been raised, “will these shoes be allowed for High School students,” and the answer is yes.  Not only will they be allowed for High School students this school year, Junior High students will be allowed to wear these options as they enter High School as well.

At this time, we are examining extending this policy to the High School for the 2017-18 School Year.  More details will follow at the end of the school year.

Homecoming Guidelines

The Homecoming Guidelines have not changed from last year.  The U.S. Bishops state that “as Christians we should dress in a modest manner, wearing clothing that reflect our reverence for God and that manifest our respect for the dignity of the liturgy and for one another.”  I do wish that you exercise modesty and sound judgments as you shop for dresses, this summer and fall.  I understand the challenges we face, adhering to our Catholic Faith while trying to shop in an environment that does not always share our beliefs.  However, know that your help is greatly appreciated in supporting the message that we work to accomplish together each day.

Homecoming Guidelines

Cross Country Stats

The Cross Country Team is looking for a Junior High or High School student that would be interested in helping the Cross Country Team this fall with doing stats at the cross country meets.  If you are interested, please contact Coach Steve Hellman at 419-233-1870.

Should you have any questions about any of the above-mentioned changes, please do not hesitate to ask.  We want nothing more than to make this transition as smooth as possible for you and your student(s).

Have a wonderful weekend.

Go Jays and God Bless,

Junior High Footwear Dress Code

Below you will find the shoe selections for your Junior High student(s).  We highly recommend you purchase shoes from one of the options pre-selected for you from Shoe Carnival in Lima or Shoe Carnival online.  You can also order shoes at the store if they would be out of stock.  If you purchase shoes outside of these options, we cannot guarantee they will meet the uniform guidelines.  Which may result in disciplinary action.

If you have any questions the sales clerks at Shoe Carnival will have the list of the pre-approved shoes, please do not hesitate to ask.  We hope this makes it easier for our families with your back to school shopping and eliminates the questions as to what footwear is appropriate.

Junior High Footwear Dress Code

Some of you have recently asked some questions about the changes that will be taking place with the Junior High, in regards to the footwear they will be required to wear to school next year.  We wanted to let you know that we are currently in the process of making this adjustment easy for all Junior High Parents and Students, in regards to what to wear and cost.

We are speaking with a few local retailers about the opportunity of supplying our shoe choices for the Junior High.  Making the decision of what to wear simple, while also trying to find the best prices and costs for you.  Once we have completed this process, we will provide you with all the information you will need, making this change in the dress code very easy.  We hope to have this completed by the end of June.

Thank you for your support and patience as we continue to finalize the details.
