Dear Parents(s)/Guardian(s):

These students are exemplary role models for their peers in and out of the classroom, through their hard-work and faith.

Instant Alerts
I would like to apologize for the Text Alert System not working correctly on Thursday to notify you of the school cancellation. This was an issue between Ohio Alerts and Verizon. At this time the issue is still being looked into and hopefully will be resolved as soon as possible.

In the meantime please refer to local Radio and TV Stations or Websites for your delay/cancellation information, as we will be posting all necessary changes to these forms of media.

End of the First Quarter
The First Quarter ended on October 27th. Shortly after student grade cards will be mailed home. If you do not receive your student’s report card by November 7th, please contact the Junior High/High School Office, so we can provide that to you.

Parent/Teacher Conferences
As you know the end of the 1st Quarter is approaching quickly, and with that comes the opportunity for Parent/Teacher Conferences. If you are interested in taking an opportunity to meet your student’s instructors please refer to the attached document below, as it outlines the times and dates as to when these will be taking place and a contact number for Mrs. Clark to schedule your appointment with the teachers you wish to see.

Thank you again for all your support as a parent and educator of your child(ren). Without your help at home we would surely be unable to continue to build the foundation you have started.

Blood Donor Day
On November 11th, The Red Cross will be here at school for Blood Donor Day. In order to give blood a student or adult must be in good general health and feeling well, be at least 17-years-old or 16-years-old with parental consent, and weigh at least 110 lbs. If you are interested in signing up, please do so in the Office beginning on Monday.

Scoliosis Screening
Attached below is a Permission Request to conduct a non-invasive Scoliosis Screening of all students in Junior High. Please read through the letter below and if you have any questions please contact Nurse Jean Gemmer at (419) 692-5371 Ext 1156. This is a wonderful opportunity to recognize this issue at the very early stages so a treatment plan and help can be administrated to help correct the problem.

Marching Band Concert
On Tuesday, November 4th at 7:30 the Marching Band will be preforming their Fall Concert. If you have an opportunity in your schedule, stop in to the Robert A. and watch some of our talented students perform, it will be a great show.

Good luck to all the St. John Students, that are competing this weekend in one way or another, bring home a win, as we are, Blue Jays.

Have a wonderful weekend.

Go Jays and God Bless,
